In one of my devotional studies this year, God revealed to me that our true "labor" should be laboring to enter into His rest. The rest that He provided through the finished work of Jesus on the Cross. And did you know that before Jesus went to the Cross, He bequeathed to you and I who follow and believe Him, HIS Shalom?
Shalom in Hebrew is not just a greeting like Ciao, or Aloha...its meaning goes deeper.
It means Welfare/Well-being, Health, Prosperity, and yes, Peace!
So He said, in effect, I am leaving you all of THAT. That is your inheritance upon my death...so do not let your heart be troubled, and do not be afraid!
(Hebrews 4:11, John 14:27)
So maybe this holiday weekend, I invite you to take a mome...
Well, here we are nearing the end of August---dog days of summer, Back to School, and all of that! I don't know if you are feeling it or not, but it certainly does seem like the world goes on high speed at the same time as what we call "summer" seems to be winding down... know what I mean?
So in keeping with my current favorite word "SIMPLICITY", I am keeping this note as short and to the point as possible!
(Gosh---it's not just a word. It is my current MANTRA!)

I pray that even as you read this, you are filled with the hope that comes from Hearing His Word and standing in it...for He is FOR YOU!
(Jeremiah 29:11, John 10:10, Romans 10:17, Romans 15:13)
Even if it doesn't feel like it...it's still true.
