We live in a culture that values activity, achievement, and accomplishment. Whether in our careers, churches, schools or families, busyness is the norm in our lives, and anything less makes us feel unproductive and anxious. We have to work all the harder, then, to pursue true rest in a 24-7 world that is constantly in motion.
John Koessler understands that rest is not automatic or easy to attain. He names the modern-day barriers to becoming people of rest and presents a unique perspective on how pursuing rest leads us to the heart of God. With honest, biblical reflections on trends in our culture and churches, he exposes our misconceptions regarding the concept of rest, as well as offering correction and practices to align our ideas with God’s ideal.
The book includes reflection and discussion questions designed for both individual and group use. You will discover the true meaning behind Jesus’ idea of the yoke of rest and restoration for your mind, body and soul.

This book is designed to assist you in your spiritual growth and guarantees your victory in Spiritual Warfare if you follow what the Word of God teaches. I have experienced firsthand the power of God in the strongest moments in Spiritual Warfare and He has given me victory every time I do it His way. In times when I tried to fight from my own strength and knowledge, I was defeated terribly.
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
(John 15:5 KJV)
There is nothing better than to obey God and live in His will because nothing will go wrong if He is the one leading. Putting God first in our lives is crucial to living a life of peace and victory. Put into practice the recommendations in this book, they are totally Biblical and have been a blessing in my life. There are no shortcuts or magic cures to overcome the kingdom of darkness. We must put into action everything that God has given us and what he has taught us.
