Hebrews 4:9

Hebrews 4:9  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 8
The heart of man naturally seeks rest, and seeks it here. Now there is no rest to be found here for the saints; but it is written, `There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God." To know this is both full of blessing and full of sorrow: sorrow to the flesh, because it is always seeking its rest here, so it has always to be disappointed- blessing to the spirit because the spirit, being born of God, can only rest in God's own rest, as it is said, "If they shall enter into My rest" (Heb. 4:4, 54For he spake in a certain place of the seventh day on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works. 5And in this place again, If they shall enter into my rest. (Hebrews 4:4‑5)). What God desires for us is to bring us into the enjoyment of all that which He Himself enjoys.
