“My Rest Is a Place of Progress,” Says the Lord

Prophetic Word with Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com

I heard the Lord say:

“My rest is a place of progress.”

He continued by saying:

“You are panting and gasping for rest, but you don’t rest enough because you feel it is a place where you won’t make progress. Yet, My rest is the place of the most progress of all, for it is in My rest that you seek Me most diligently … and that is when I can add all things to you.

    I want you to treat rest like fasting for the time being: like a way to sacrifice something in order to seek Me.

    You don’t always have to do this, but I do need you to do it for now because this method of seeking My rest will teach you. As you present your rest to Me like a fast, I will accept your sacrifice–the sacrifice of your self-perceived ability to provide for yourself–and I will move in your situation.

    Rest is a trust issue.

    As we have discussed before, you have faith–but you don’t always trust Me. The two things are not the same. But when you rest, you have to trust that I will do all the things (and do them better) than you could, even when you try your hardest.

    Worry is a trust issue too, and that is why I am purging you of worry. I desire you to trust Me no matter what, and to know that I am for you.

    I am working the trust that is in your heart so that it is visible on the outside, in your actions. I am teaching you to trust Me more every day. I am providing for you in ways you know not of, and I am moving on your behalf MORE every time you rest.

    Everything you see was created by the spoken word.

    So if you have nothing except the ability to speak, you can still create anything you want. You can be like God and speak those things that are not as if they already were (Romans 4:17)!

    To help you, Jamie wrote a book of hundreds of Biblical confessions for you—especially in the area of your finances. It called Speak Life Volume 1: Chart Your Course With Your Words, and it’s our most popular book ever! Get your copy today and begin speaking LIFE over those things that concern you!

    You need to realize that you can do nothing without Me, so you might as well just step back and rest.

    Let Me do things for you while you rest. Seek Me with all your heart for My own sake, and rest in Me while you do.

    Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. I am working on your behalf right now, even when you do not see it. And I am producing results for you that you could never imagine!

    I am with you to comfort you during this hard season.

    But, you will find this season is not as hard as you thought it was if you will just rest. Your fatigue makes things a LOT harder than they need to be.

    You were shocked when you heard recently that life should be fun and easy. And although it’s true that in this world you will have tribulations, the fact is that you can be of good cheer–for I have overcome the world. The ease of life happens when you enter My rest, even when things appear difficult on the outside.

      Hebrews 3:18,19
      And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
