Peace On All Sides

2 Chronicles 14:6 – He built fortified cities in Judah; for the land was quiet, and he had no war in those years, because the Lord had given him rest.

King Asa came into a season where there was rest in the land – because the Lord had given him rest and peace on all sides.  In this season, he was able to build up fortified cities and invest into the land.

When we’re not fighting battles and we enter into a time of peace – it’s a huge opportunity for us to rebuild walls and invest into various things in our lives. 

But here’s the key – the Lord had given him rest.  We can be in the midst of huge struggles and storms of life – and yet still find ourselves in the REST of God. 

We must labour to enter into His rest – because from that place all the real building begins!!
