Often when we as believers are in a state of transition, God calls us to rest. We should always be able to rest in God, but sometimes when we come out of hard places, trials, or tribulations the after affect of the experience makes it hard to rest.
Rest means according to Google Definition:
- Cease work or movement in order to relax, refresh oneself, or recover strength.
- Be placed or supported so as to stay in a specified position.
- Be based on or grounded in; depend on. Place hope, trust, or confidence on or in.
I believe that God deals with us according to different times and seasons in our lives. Sometimes when it is time to go to a new season, we may tend to struggle with what is going on, and because of that struggle, God again requires us to enter into His rest.
