But Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope. Hebrews 3:6 (ESV)
Moses was a very powerful leader. He led the house of God, or His nation, through some of the most crucial events in their history. Moses was a servant, Jesus is a son. If God was able to use a weak man to lead an entire nation, how much more capable is Christ in leading us? We are His house but we must follow His lead in faith. Just like we did when we allowed Him into the home of our heart, we must hold fast our confidence– always trusting and obeying Him.
Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says, “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness.” Hebrews 3:7-8 (ESV)
The nation of Israel rebelled against God and chose to trust in their own way of thinking. Could it be that we have a hardened heart when we fail to experience His rest? God’s peace is always available but we must be obedient. The Israelites were a stiff-necked people, quick to forget the wonders God had previously worked for them. When you find yourself against an impossibility, choose faith. As you humbly follow the Spirit’s leading- no matter how uncomfortable the situation, you fill experience the truest of rest! Unharden your heart.
