Hebrews 4:10

Your Flesh Will Always Work When Your Soul is Not At Rest

Transcript

Hebrews 4:10 for the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works as God did from His I was asking the LORD one time many years ago why is it that I seem to just work my own works you can walk in the spirit or you can walk in the flesh when you’re in the flseh that’s you working your own works I was asking the LORD why does that happen to me why do sometimes things rise up and come out of my mouth when I didn’t want them why are there attitudes sometimes that I didn’t want why do I fight with certain things that I know shouldn’t be in my life attitudes that sort of thing this was a key to me Hebrews 4:10 where the LORD said what we just read that the one who has entered into God’s rest will rest from his own works what’s the opposite of that the man who has not entered into God’s rest will not cease from his own works and I realized Ohhh whenever my soul is not at rest on the inside my flesh gets real busy trying to bring peace to the soul trying to bring a false comfort to the soul here’s what that means your soul is your mind, will and emotions whenever something on the inside is not at peace whenever you’re not at peace inside in your mind, will and emotions the flesh comes along with a solution get drunk why would somebody who loves the LORD get drunk the reason is because the flesh says it will bring you peace it will bring comfort or look at pornography have an affair, steal something these are all things that we know are not right and yet people do those things why is it it’s the flesh trying to bring a false comfort to something out of peace on the inside you’ll never stop the flesh by trying to stop the flesh saying no I will not do that never works, why because the soul is still out of peace and the flesh has to do something to bring a false comfort how do you get all that stuff shut down bring peace to the soul when comfort comes to the soul when the soul comes into peace all that stuff just shuts down why, because the flesh has no more work to do what’s the job of the flesh just to bring a false comfort to the soul I remember one day many years ago on a Saturday I was sitting around sort of bored watching television and a thought came to my mind you need ice cream and I went and got a bowl of ice cream and I ate it and a little while later you need pizza and I ate some pizza and then soda pop and then popcorn and after several of these things the Holy Spirit said what are you doing I said I’m eating He said why I said because I’m hungry He said no you’re not you just had lunch a short time ago what you’re doing you’re in idolatry you are using food to bring comfort to something that is not at peace on the inside and He said I am the Prince of peace I am Jehovah Shalom I want to bring your peace but today you’ve decided to look to food to bring you comfort instead of looking to God Almighty and that’s idolatry that hit my heart hard I said LORD I’ve never seen that before please forgive me I repented I said God I just need you to be my peace what I realized after that there’s always something on the inside there’s some kind of a lie something that’s tormenting on the inside when you remove the lie that torments, guess what the soul comes into peace the flesh stops all its work and that’s my prayer for you today my prayer for you today is that whatever area God has been speaking to you about as I’ve been talking today whatever area where your flesh is working trying to bring comfort to the soul some area where you battle where you struggle it’s because the soul is not at rest when the soul comes into rest that stuff shuts down you quit working your own works and you’re at peace my prayer for you today is that God would identify the root of that and that God would bring His love into the depths of your heart eliminate the fear the lie that’s there and bring a true comfort and a true Shalom His peace to your heart I pray that for you today in the mighty name of Yeshua Ha Mashiach Amen
