“Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.” Genesis 2:3
Did God need rest because He was tired? NO! He rested because He was finished, His work was completely done, there was nothing left to do! Unlike us who always have a little more to do! So when we work six days, and take the seventh off we are celebrating the completed work of God!
“The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.” Psalm 145:9
“The LORD is righteous in all His ways, Gracious in all His works.” Psalm 145:17
In other words we are created by God, saved by God so let us live for God and rest in Him! Our work may never be complete, but we are completed in Him! So if life is stressing us out look to the LORD and rest in Him!
“Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
We have all kinds of things going on around us; uncompleted work, stressed-out relationships, disrupted lives and out of control life situations! But the LORD is complete gracious and full of mercy so let us rest in Him! Have a blessed day!
