Rest, Slow Down, Be Still

Did you know that the enemy has made a decree against you?

You may be experiencing fear right now, feelings of anxiety, not knowing which direction to turn.

Have you ever asked yourself: How is this possible for me as a believer? I sum it up in two words: spiritual warfare. The enemy has made a decree against you, your calling, your purpose, and your destiny in GOD.

What is your recourse? What is your next course of action?


Resting in Him doesn’t mean to just do nothing; it is not a license to sleep through it. No! Resting in Him means to be quiet; and to cease struggling, striving and trying to figure it out on your own. Relying on Him gives you rest from your enemies, bringing you joy. Not joy in a human sense: it is joy in knowing that He has you and the situation in the palm of His hand. He is in control.

You may feel overwhelmed by your adversary, his plots, or plans designed to bring your demise. Perhaps family situations, appointments, schedules, meetings, carpooling, and workloads are giving you a sense of things spiraling out of control. The enemy wants you to get “caught up,” even distracted in everything going on around you right now with the intent of getting you to believe your GOD is not in control. These things are designed to keep us from resting and experiencing the Presence of our Heavenly Father.

Slow down!

How does slowing down help right now? This step requires full blown T R U S T. Trust! Slowing down seems impossible, even counterproductive. It appears contrary to where you are now or what you want to do. Yet, this process allows you to experience Him, His love, Shalom, and Truth. Being still and knowing He is GOD allows us to view things from a different perspective.

Be still!

Be still, pray, and even fast to enter into His rest; His quiet assurance. His Spirit grants you victory over the enemy. When we rest in Jesus, we experience joy in the Holy Spirit, gladness, and feasting.

Yes, the enemy wrote a decree against you. Yet, GOD’s decree is more powerful, overriding the decree of the enemy. Jesus has not left you alone. Be still as He works it all out according to His will, plan, and purpose for your life. The One who called you is also He who marked you to fulfill your destiny!

In his service,

Apostle Evelyn L. Cobb
