This podcast is the second half of the same live recording we sent you in last months podcast, from one of our Sunday morning worship services at Pursuit.

Restful Increase

The greatest battles are won through rest. We sometimes so easily forget this and instead of resting, we end up striving; forcing increase instead of staying in a posture of rest. Resting in His Presence sharpens us. Like a pencil is sharpened, our clarity on life and situations is sharpened when we stay in His rest and allow cares and worry to be stripped away.

Rest is an offensive weapon in the spiritual realm. It is not a passive stance we take when there is nothing else we can do. Living out of rest scares the demonic realm because we are reflecting the posture of our Heavenly Father and the Son. Jesus is seated with the Father and when we rest in His finished work, more fruitfulness abounds than when trying to achieve in our own strength.

Jesus said He came to give us life and life more abundantly. When we rest in Him, life flows. Jesus explains in John 15 that the branch does not strain or strive to experience increase and fruitfulness but simply abides. We are connected to Christ and as a branch in the Vine, we simply rest and abide in Him and then from that place fruitfulness comes.

The atmosphere of heaven is one of righteousness, peace and joy. If we find our lives emanating guilt instead of righteousness, busyness and confusion instead of peace, and depression instead of joy, then rest in His Presence till our atmosphere reflects that of heaven. This is where restful increase is found.

My prayer for you is that in the midst of your day and all its complexities, you will find that secret place where everything else fades away against the simplicity of dwelling in His Presence. It is from here that you will find restful increase.

Thank you for being a friend of The Secret Place and for partnering with us in “turning hearts back to the Father through intimate praise and worship”.

May you be blessed in The Secret Place.
