Operating in the spirit of seeing and knowing!


The following excerpt is taken from Living in the Balance of Grace & Faith by Andrew Wommack:

“Father, it’s Done”

After saying all these thing, the writer of Hebrews said:

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Hebrews 4:10

In other words, for people who have entered into this rest, they have ceased trying to make God do something. They’ve ceased trying to get God to bless them. They’ve ceased trying to earn His favor. And now they are just resting in the truth that, through Jesus, God has already supplied everything. In the same way that God created everything and now HE doesn’t have to create new plants, animals, or people today because they simply propagate as a result of His original creation, the Lord made a new creation – and that’s us.

Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.

Hebrews 4:11

This sounds like an oxymoron – a contradiction of terms. How do you labor to rest? This isn’t saying that we should just “veg out,” go to sleep, and do nothing. This is ceasing from your own works, from thinking that you have to earn God’s favor. It’s ceasing from thinking you have to do something to motivate God to get Him to love you and answer your prayers.

Saying, “Oh God, don’t You love this person? I’ve been praying for them for twenty years. Oh, God, do something!” isn’t resting. You think you’re the one motivating God and if it wasn’t for your intercession, the Lord would just let people go to hell because He doesn’t care. If you think it’s your great intercession that is moving God, you’re trusting in your own effort. You aren’t resting in Him.

Rest is simply trusting and relying on God. It’s saying, “Lord, You love this person more than I ever could. You’ve already provided salvation for them, so I know it’s Your will that they be saved. Father, I thank You that Your will is coming to pass. Here am I. Use me. If You can open up a door for me to share Your love and Your Word with this person, then I will do it. That’s how you pray for lost people. Don’t plead with God as if it’s up to Him whether or not they get saved. He’s not the one determining who gets saved. God has made the provision. He’s provided salvation for everybody, but each person has to decide to accept that salvation. So you can only become a channel for God to flow through.

Depend on God

When you understand rest properly, you understand it takes effort to rest. You must labor to rest. When the banker is calling, your checkbook is in the red, and your spouse has been saying, “You’ve got to do something!” it takes labor to say, “My faith is in God. I’m doing what He has told me to do. I trust Him and I’m not going to panic. I refuse to get out of rest. I’m not going to get into fear.” When the doctor says you’re going to die, it takes labor for you to respond, “That’s not what God’s Word says. By His stripes I was healed! I’m not going to be healed, I was already healed. He’s already supplied healing, and I’m not going to panic. I refuse to get into fear.” It takes effort for you to rest like that.

This is why we study the Word. We don’t study the Word to get God to heal us. We study the Word to find out that God has already healed us, to calm our fears, and to anchor our faith. Then we can say, “Father, I’m operating on this knowledge that You’ve given me, and I’m not moving off of it!” This takes effort.

Scripture Focus…

(10) For he who has once entered [God’s] rest also has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labors, just as God rested from those labors peculiarly His own. (11) Let us therefore be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], that no one may fall or perish by the same kind of unbelief and disobedience [into which those in the wilderness fell].
(Heb. 4:10-11 Amp.)

Continued Praying…

Lord, we receive all of Your Word
We labor to be in a place of rest!
Father, we pray over the laborers – those who are out in the field right now
Praying encouragement, momentum, and all resources to go and do what You have called them to
Declaring they WILL be in a place of rest as they peruse You
Pastor, teachers, evangelists, and ALL positions of authority in the Church
Calling for a covering of the blood to cover each one of them!
Thank You for the power and victory that is in the blood of Jesus!
Sending it out over every nation and position of authority
There is a covering over the Church!
Applying the blood over families
The blood makes a way in impossible situations
We send the blood to the young generation that has walked away from their faith
Everything of the enemy MUST bow its knee before the blood!
Demanding and commanding a smoothing out now!
Under the anointing we call for all of the hindrances to get out of the way!
Strife you MUST get out!
Declaring the enemy has been defeated!
Making a way for the glory to come!
Every form of lack in the Body be gone in Jesus’ name!
Speaking forth abundance for the body of Christ to do what she has been called to do
Thank You, Father, for what was done on the cross!
We let go of every care and hindrance
The joy of the Lord is our strength!
