Defiling the Sabbath: not resting in Jesus.
-Not putting your faith in Him
-Not waiting on Him
-Trying to do without His help
-Not thinking about the right things
-Speaking the wrong things
Rest is a position of authority. A king, “rests,” on their throne and gives declarations and orders to their people. Through grace, we have been made royalty in the family of God. We as, “kings,” speak His Word (Jesus is the Word) in faith and rest: knowing that what has been declared is done. God watches over His Word to perform it. You command angelic armies with the words you speak.
Stress is a tell-tale sign that you are not resting. Cast your cares on the Lord for He will do the caring and the carrying for you. If you need help with a decision then ask God for wisdom and expect the mind of Christ in your spirit to direct you into truth and goodness. Get rid of stress in your life and start resting in Jesus!
