Part 21: Knowing His Best...Walking in Rest!
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Knowing His Best...
Dear friends, if our hearts do not condemn us, we have confidence before God and receive from him anything we ask, because we obey his commands and do what pleases him. 1 John 3:21-22 NIV
Walking in Rest!
An obedient life is a life at rest. Obedience keeps you from the many personal conflicts that result from wanting and seeking your own way. It keeps His peace in your heart, His strength in your spirit and His balm upon your soul. Obedience frees you from the need to defend your actions and protect your image. An obedient life is at rest because it knows that to obey is better than sacrifice...that God's approval is more important than man's...that the reward of the things gained far exceed the loss of the things that have been given up.
