For those who are tired of the endless debate over whose right and whether or not your being good enough or right enough, I offer the following. It's about Jesus not about you or me: Here's an article from lovinggrace.org. His Resting Place Is Glorious by Rev. Wayne Monbleau "In that day the nations will resort to the root of Jesse, who will stand as a signal for the peoples; and His resting place will be glorious." Isaiah 11:10 Do you know why God’s resting place is glorious? This section of Scripture, from the prophet Isaiah, spoke of a future time for the people of Israel, a time of peace in which there would be no fear. Verse 1 of this chapter from Isaiah began by saying, "A shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit." This was speaking about the coming Messiah, Who would be a "signal" for all peoples to behold and to be drawn to. The Hebrew word for "signal" in this verse is "nes" which means: a standard, a sign, a banner. God was telling His hurting people that Messiah was coming. He would appear like a banner for all to see, that all might come to Him for life, peace, safety and healing. And as the closing verse from Isaiah 11 said, "His resting place will be glorious." Jesus Christ is our "signal." He is God’s "sign" to all of humanity. He is our flag waving upon a hill so we may be drawn to Him. Our Messiah desires us to come to Him; for salvation, for the establishment of His peace in our lives, for safety, for eternity, and to experience the rest of knowing His presence. Why is God’s resting place glorious? Because, as our Savior said, when He prayed His great prayer to His heavenly Father on the eve of His crucifixion on our behalf, "Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with Me where I am, so that they may see my glory" (John 17:24). God’s resting place is glorious because Jesus is there! God’s resting place is glorious because He desires us to be with Him there! God’s resting place is glorious because He is glorious! When we go to our resting place in communion with God, let us always go with the conscious thought that we are going to meet with Him, our beloved Savior, Who desires this intimate fellowship with us. Our resting place is His resting place, where we mutually come together, enjoying each other’s company and presence. Yes, that future day will be glorious when we step into eternity with Christ our Lord, seeing Him at last face to face, with every tear wiped away from our eyes. But God’s resting place is glorious now too, and now is the time we really need to experience His glorious rest. Now is when we need the strength of His presence, the peace that passes understanding so we may stand and be strong, in the power of His might, as we live each day of our lives in this world. Now is when we can benefit so much from taking that time, those precious moments and extended hours, to bask in the restorative wonder of His love. Now is when we can go to our resting place, letting all fears and anxieties melt before Him, being replaced with the fullness of His Spirit. Now is when we can realize that as we rest in Him, in all that He is and all that He has done, that we are dwelling in His resting place, His Own house that He has invited us to. Our gracious Savior actually desires our presence in His presence. He wants us to be with Him. He has asked His Abba Father that we would be with Him so we may behold His glory. Jesus Christ, our Beloved Messiah, is requesting the honor of your presence in His dwelling place! Today, Let us not miss this grand privilege of looking to our "signal." Look to Him now. Hear Him calling you, by name, to Himself. He is requesting your company. He desires you to come and be with Him, in His resting place. As we practice letting our Savior be a "signal" to us, drawing us joyfully and expectantly to Himself, then we will more readily reflect Him, in spirit and in truth, so He may through us become a "signal" for others to see, so they too may one day gratefully declare, "His resting place is glorious."
