The Supernatural Blessing in Rest!
SHARE!
The “state of rest” is a moment, by moment process which seeks to abide in the Fathers grace, love and finished works!
The rest of God is a spiritual state of abiding in his finished work. It is a place of empowerment that comes in quietness and confidence in his promise. “ In returning and rest you shall be saved: in quietness and confidence shall be your strength” (Is 30:15). True rest is experienced in “waiting” upon the Lord and drinking of the fountain of his goodness and love. God has promised some amazing things for those who learn the blessedness of rest. God is a God “who acts for the one who waits for him.”(64:4) One of the biggest things about connecting with the presence of God is learning to still the heart, mind and learning to focus on him. When we draw near to him with a desire to know him more, he always responds and draws near to us. When we rest in the revelation of what he has done at Calvary, And learn to be still before him, sitting at his feet and turning our full attention on his face. He will always speak and fill us anew with his presence. This rest is also key to growing in sensitivity to Gods Presence and can help you learn to use your spiritual senses more! This is also a great way to experience God more in prayer.
In my experience the more I soaked and waited on the lord the more he began to “act” and things got done almost supernatural. My prayers were answered before I even made a request when I choose to trust in the promise that he really knew the things I had need of before I asked. I choose resting in him and his word as a daily part of my communion.
To be honest, for a while I thought all I am really doing is lying around in the presence of God. I’m not really doing anything as far as actively engaging in some outward expression of prayer or intercession. I’m not praying in tongues or reading the Bible I’m just laying still in his presence. I would just sit and meditate on his beauty, sometimes for hours. I would even worship without words. My heart would bend before him in adoration and my full attention was on his face. God seemed to move in areas of my life I most needed breakthrough as I learned to wait in stillness!
BEHOLDING HIM
(Heb 12:2) describes waiting in another way: “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.”
Yes, the soaking meditation I described involves looking and beholding Jesus or gazing at him. To gaze suggest turning your eyes away from other things and fixing them on something and staring at it. The word gaze carries the idea of studying intently or seeing with the eyes, perceiving, knowing, and becoming intimately aquatinted with him by experiencing his divine presence.
Some people don’t feel that they truly connect with God unless they are doing something like interceding, praying in tongues, worshiping, or reading the Bible. The minute they stop in their praying they feel that prayer is now over and God is gone! I say real prayer does not begin until you run out of things on your prayer list to pray about. Then we move into deeper communion. It’s like we are programed in our understanding of prayer that we do all the talking. “but those who “wait” on the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint” (IS 40:31) real prayer does not begin until we run out of things to pray about!
If you want to enter into a deeper place in prayer, practice soaking and meditating on his presence and word for an hour a day. Pray and worship until you sense the presence of God or until the burden is prayed through, then get still and quiet before him. We need to remember all manner of prayer and communion but add soaking to what you already doing in prayer and learn to simply rest, drink and receive in his river.

I would love to order the book. I totally agree with sitting or laying down and waiting on him. No words are needed just opened a of our heart to be penetrated by his spirit infusing us with his love and thoughts that go deep past our own understanding and moves us into oneness.Soaking at times feels like your body is so full it could explode. He makes us fat with his love.
