Rest at the Feet of Jesus

Isaiah 60:13 … The glory of Lebanon will come to you, The juniper, the box tree and the cypress together, To beautify the place of My sanctuary; And I shall make the {resting}place of My feet{throne} glorious{full of glory}.

Matthew 11:28-30 … Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry{walk with}.
=> notice 2 types of rest – simply come and then learn and walk yoked with Him!
Psalm 149:4-6 … For the LORD takes delight in His people; He crowns the humble with salvation{deliverance, victory}. 5 Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds{place of rest}. 6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouths and a double-edged sword in their hands.
Come – all who are weary and heavy-laden –Matthew 11:28
Come to the place of Jesus’ feet –Isaiah 60:13
Humble yourself under His mighty hand –1Peter 5:5-7
Listen for His words like Mary –Luke 10:39
Learn from Jesus at His feet –Matthew 11:29
From this position of rest
Keep your eyes on Jesus for help 2Chronicles 20:12
Walk together with Him –Matthew 11:30
Walk humbly with high praises in your mouth
And a double-edged sword in your hands
For the Lord crowns the humble with victory! –Psalm 149:4-6
1Peter 5:5-7 … In the same way, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. And all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. 6 And God will exalt you in due time, if you humble yourselves under His mighty hand 7 by casting all your cares on Him because He cares for you.

    Sunday night was interesting. There was talk of end-times persecution, “can’t buy or sell”, and staying focused on our “task”. Much like last week — how do we stay focused? The answer is to keep our eyes on Jesus. The Lord also gave the “picture” of “the place of Jesus feet”.  Martha and Mary again! Here at His feet we are to listen and wait for His words. Also here at His feet – it’s the same place where the “hem” of His robe falls = healing. There is a promise for this place of His feet. This is a place full of glory-victory! It’s is also a place of rest. It’s from this place of rest that we learn how to take His yoke and walk{keep in step}= do the task{fight the battle} before us. Like last week — isn’t this the pattern that Jehoshaphat used? The task{battle} at hand was not attempted until they listened at the feet of the Lord and received His word – only then did they proceed=> from a position of rest, armed with high praise and a double-edged sword! This is how to fight our battles{proceed with the task at hand}!
    The temple is filled with glory from the “hem” – train of His robe
    => the place of His feet!

    Isaiah 30:20-21 … Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself any more, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. 21 Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

    The train of his robe
    Fills the temple
    A cloud of heavenly worshipers
    Surrounding his throne
    We join with them now crying
    “Holy, holy is the lamb
    The lamb alone”

    I see the lord, I see the lord
    Exalted high upon the worship
    Of the people of the earth

    I see the lord, I see the lord
    My eyes have seen the king
    The lamb upon the throne
    Who reigns forevermore
    And ever
    Forever and ever, forever and ever
    Forever and ever, forever and ever
    Forever and evermore

    My eyes have seen the king
    The lamb upon the throne
    Who reigns forevermore

    God is able

    Deliverance is your destiny. Receive the life giving breath of God. You were straining and struggling to breathe. Jesus is the living Word you need. Fresh air! Mighty wind! He brings you to the banquet table. Eat! Taste and see! You were tired and broken. Stand strong again. Your mind is renewed in Him. Your heart beats with His. Drink the new wine. You were drunk with lethargy but Jesus has delivered you. Depression had to flee. Now you are walking again in faith…in Christ. Alive! The grieving widow will sing for joy! God restores the orphaned child. The servant returns and is a son. The Father runs. We wear the ring. We are family. We are the Church.
