Selah- pause and calmly think of that. PAUSE.
We need to be filled with His goodness consistently. When we rest, He removes anything that is detrimental to HIS character. HIS Rest causes is to feel satisfied, nourished, and restored from the inside out. REFRESHED, REFILLED, REVIVED, RENEWED, REJUVENATED, REPLENISHED IN HIS PRESENCE: RESTING. Resting in His Grace changes our viewing platform and our perspective. REST IS A GIFT FROM GOD that we need to take care of our spirits, souls and bodies.

Some ways to come into rest:
BODY – MIND – EMOTIONS – WILL – SPIRIT Rest in Your Identity as ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED.
“A wounded spirit who can bear?” PROVERBS 18:14b(KJV)
GOD CAN HEAL THIS. GOD CAN HEAL ANYTHING.
“SPIRIT-MAN, ALIGNED WITH GOD, WALKING IN RHYTHM WITH HIM IN AUTHENTIC TRUTH, WILL RESULT IN HEALING AND ACCEPTANCE IN EVERY PART OF OUR BEING.” -Pastor Marie

COME TO GOD. GET RESTED IN HIS PRESENCE.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS, for My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.”
Mark 6:31 Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “COME WITH ME BY YOURSELVES TO A QUIET PLACE AND GET SOME REST.”
When we rest, we synchronize with God. Our natural circadian rhythm will reset in harmony with Him.
Exodus 33:14- My Presence shall go with you, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.
Nu’ach: to rest, settle down, be soothed or quieted; to be secure; to be still; to dwell peacefully.
Ephesians 3:14-17(TPT) “So I kneel humbly in awe before the Father of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, the perfect Father of every father and child in heaven and on the earth. And I pray that he will unveil within you the unlimited riches of his glory and favor until supernatural strength floods your innermost being with his divine might and explosive power. Then, by constantly using your faith, the life of Christ will be released deep inside you, and THE RESTING PLACE OF HIS LOVE will become the very source and root of your life.”
