Been procrastinating on this subject. Just received a comment from prossie about her struggle and pain here, my hearts goes out to her. I admit I don’t have all the answer or solution, but my God say “The Battle is Mine – REST!”
How many times have we heard that to make it in life, we have to work really hard. Struggle to the top, and there life will be good. The world concept is simply, “No pain, No gain”. Since young in school, we have been told to work hard to make good grades. At work, we are told to work hard to make good profits or profile. While we are to work hard to strive the best for the glory of our Lord, reap what we sow, but we have to ask what is our motive? Did we import these concepts even into our faith and walk with God?
The LORD says to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.” Psalms 110:1
From the above, God is speaking to Jesus to sit (and rest) until I MAKE your enemies becomes your footstool. As we are seated with Christ, we are to rest and God will make you enemies, your struggle, your trouble, your pain and your anguish under your feet!
This is God’s promise, that if we are with Jesus Christ, God Himself is with us. And if He is with us who can be against us! And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6-7
