Moving Day

Vance Havner 90x115by Vance Havner

For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his. Hebrews 4:10

You will not find peace by moving from a big house into a bigger one, by moving from town to country, by moving up the social ladder, by moving from a B. A. to a Ph.D. Moving to the mountains in the summer or south in the winter will not do it. It was an old Negro maid who said of her unhappy globe-trotting mistress, “It don’t do her any good, because she has to take herself along!”

But entering into God’s rest by simple faith, ceasing from your own works to rest in His finished work, will do it. Do not limit the words, “Entered Into Rest,” to a tombstone epitaph. You can enter now.

How Do I Understand The Will of God?

George Whitten2 90x115by George Whitten

Philippians 2:13 for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.

Throughout the years of writing daily devotions, I’m often asked how do I find the will of God? I believe in order to find the will of God, you must begin at the very basics — to understand the will of God then you must understand the heart of God.

When you have the heart of God, you’ll search to desire the things that God desires. To be passionate about what God is passionate for. To be broken over the things that break God’s heart.

So to begin to understand the will of God for your life, simply start with the heart of God in the things you do. Find out what God is passionate for — and make that your passion. When you run after the heart of God — the will of God will follow you!
