“For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world.” Hebrews 4:10
Work is good, hardwork is good too, we all must be hardworking as children of God. But you will agree with me that there are different kinds of “hardwork”; some people work hard in comfortable offices and under wonderful working conditions, while some others are on the streets carrying heavy things on their bodies, working under terrible conditions just to make ends meet.
One of my favourite scriptures in Psalm 127:2. It says, “It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.”
We have seen people faint and fall sick because of their work; we have also seen people toil day to day, week to week, with little or nothing to show for their efforts. That is not the will of God for us; the curse made things difficult, but the blessing makes things easy.
I pray for you today, that you will begin to enjoy the rest of God. I put the blessing of God on you, your job and your business, you will begin to get results effortlessly in the name of Jesus. Amen.
I declare that from today I am living in the rest of God; I will no longer suffer to get results and to eat or make money, success comes to me effortlessly in the name of Jesus. I enjoy my work from today; I receive grace for my job, business and studies, in Jesus name. Amen.
