Notes Resting In God (Arthur Meintjes)
God wants you to have the strength to be able to coop with life. Because He came to give you life. And if you don’t have strength you can’t coop with life, because with life comes challenges. And most Christians are so worn-out, working for God, that when the challenges of life come they can’t stand against it. They can’t come and coop with it, they can’t overcome.
- Arthur Meintjes
God’s rest is your strength. Rest in God. Rest in His love, provision, His work, His wisdom for whatever challenges in life you face.
phil4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
3 keys for entering into rest:
- See Jesus, think of Him, as the one who was faithful to the charge God gave Him. He did the work and left NOTHING undone. heb3:1-6 JBP See him as faithful to the charge God gave him

It’s when we refuse that what God is doing in our lives right now is because He wants to be good to me, that we keep ourselves from entering into rest. (heb3:18)
This year, it’s the year for me to say ‘Lord, I’m entering into your rest’. I’m going to trust that you’re a good God. And no matter what happens around me, even as that scripture says in Isaiah, even as the mountains and hills are removed, know that My mercy, know that My kindness will not depart from thee. Even if everything around me is crumbling, I’m going to enter into that rest and say Lord I know, even when everything around me is crumbling. I’m in the rest of knowing that you are good to me.
