Message of the Day: The Power of God’s Word – It Removes Unbelief So We Can Enjoy God’s Rest

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the hearts.” (Hebrews 4:12, NKJV)

God’s plan was that the people of Israel, who had been freed from slavery in Egypt, should find rest in Canaan, the land God promised them. In the same way God wants all the people of the world to be freed from the bondage of sin and find rest in Christ. But as with Israel, disbelief will keep them from this promised rest (Heb. 4:1-2).

The Israelites who were disobedient failed to reach Canaan and experience rest under Moses. It was through the leadership of Joshua that they finally entered the promised land, However, long after the time of Joshua, David reiterated God’s promise of rest. This shows that the conquest of Canaan was not the final fulfillment of God’s promise. The true rest that God promises is salvation through faith. Just as God rested after his work of creation, so we will find true rest when we refrain from working to try to earn it and trust in what Christ has done for us (Heb. 4:9-10).

We should strive to remove unbelief and all other issues that keep us from experiencing God’s rest. We have the powerful word of God to help us abhor unbelief. God’s word is alive and it penetrates into the heart, it separates the merely natural from the truly spiritual, and exposes people as they really are before God (Heb. 4:11-13).
