The Power of Testimony: REST

Hebrews 4:9-11 (NKJV) There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. [10] For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His. [11] Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience.

Soul Tattoo: We live and lead from rest, not for rest.

Creation: Rest in the life and leadership of God

Genesis 1:26-2:3 (NASB)

1.) Adam & the woman’s first full day was spent with God in rest.

2.) The only thing God deems as “qadosh” or holy, in the creation story is the Sabbath day.

“When we don’t rest, don’t create boundaries in our lives and ministries and we instead become a quivering mass of availability to people, we tend to lose our availability to Him.” Beth Taylor
