A DAY OF REST

When God created the heavens and earth he rested on the seventh day, even though He did not need to recuperate from anything. Most people love to work on their day(s) off failing to realize that it is a God-given right to relax on that day. This is the reason why most people are stressed out, overburdened and tired, because they don’t know when it’s time to simply rest, relax and chill so that their body can get a break from the hustle and bustle of life; no wonder some people get sick and end up where they don’t want to or in situations they don’t want to be in.

For those who are children of God rest is different for us. It’s special, because we can use that time to spend with our heavenly Father where we glorify, praise and thank Him for the times He brought us over the mountains and obstacles of the past days. It is during our time of rest that we can seek His continuous guidance for the future days. The day of rest is to acknowledge God for what He has done and is going to do. In Hebrews 4:9-11 we see that if we don’t rest on that day it becomes disobedience to God’s word, laws, and will, as a result we open the door for the enemy to devour us. This is why so many people have fallen, because they have not gone boldly to the throne of grace to obtain mercy(Hebrews 4:16). In the Old Testament this day of rest was known as the Sabbath day. It is the same thing as a day of rest from your worldly duties to honor your Creator.

Yes, some people are forced to work on Sundays but, God didn’t choose a specific day between Saturday and Sunday to rest. Therefore, if you work on the days most people choose to worship, then for the day that you don’t have to work make it your day of rest and spend time with your heavenly Father in worship. There is no excuse. If you find time for other things you can find time for Him. If you don’t find time to acknowledge and seek the Lord, then that shows what you truly value in your life.

You can’t fool God, He never slumbers or sleeps as Psalm 121:4 shows us; and because He is God, He knows your thoughts and intents before you put them into action. Hebrews 4:12 tells us that His word is also quick and powerful. Creating heaven and earth is proof and a perfect example of how quick and powerful His word is. He said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
