The people of Israel did not enter the promised land because of unbelief. Jesus always knows how to get down to real issues in life. Every person must make a spiritual choice. Choice One: believe that Jesus loves you and seeks to deliver you from sin. Choice Two: believe you can control your life and ignore the voice of Jesus. One way you trust the infinite, loving God of this universe who gave His life for you, paid the death penalty for your sins, rose from the grave, and performs miracles every day. Or, you can trust yourself, ignore His loving voice, harden your heart, and continue your journey through the wilderness until your body finally drops dead, and then you will truly experience the full wrath of God for eternity. Choose to end the journey, rest in the love of Jesus Christ, and learn from Him. You will never be disappointed.
So, we learn that Jesus alone provides rest for everyone on a spiritual journey.
Application for Today
