Creflo Dollar — Laboring to Rest
"The Bible says the steps of a righteous man are ordered by the Lord." So how are we making it not having God to order our steps? How are we even making it without having a personal relationship with God if He's the One that orders our steps?
And, ladies and gentlemen, if you don't believe me, just look at where you are so far without God. The greatest position you can be in as a Christian is to learn how to enter into that confident rest, that boldness that says, "I am Christ confident. I am Christ confident. I am confident that Christ did it all. I am confident that healing is finished, deliverance is finished. I am confident that whatever I need that pertains to life and godliness has already been done.
To fail to enter into the rest is to claim that you have entered into unbelief. See, if you believe God, then you will do what God tells you to do. Actions alone won't be enough. In fact, actions alone can kill you.
It's got to be faith, acting in faith, not acting alone, acting in faith that will cause great things to happen in your life. Don't be full of care, don't be full of care. Take it to God. Learn how to labor to enter into that rest. God made man to operate out of rest. He made man to operate out of rest.
