the theology of rest

'O ye of little faith!"

What a pang must have shot through the disciples

"Missed it again!"

....and what a pang will go through me when I suddenly realize that I might have produced downright joy in the heart of Jesus by remaining absolutely confident in Him, not matter what was ahead.

There are stages in my life when there is no storm, no crisis, when I do my human best; it is when a crisis arises that I instantly reveal upom whom I rely.

If I have been learning to worship God and trusting Him, the crisis will reveal that I will go to the breaking point and not break in my confidence in Him.

We talk a lot about sanctification.

What is it all going to amount to?

It should work out into rest in God which means oneness with God, a onenes which will make me not only blameless in His sight, but a deep joy in Him.

(Taken from August 12 My Upmost for His Highest, Oswald Chambers)
