The roller coaster ride of activity is exciting, the adrenaline pumping hard, heart rate accelerating, and we fly. Keep going. Stay on the coaster for another round.
But sometimes we need to get off, sit on the bench and eat ice cream.
God gave the Sabbath as a gift to man.
Rest is good. It is necessary. Sleep is restorative. Our bodies, our health depend on the stops we take.
Let your mind rest. Jesus completed all the work necessary for your salvation. He said, “It is finished.”
Let your soul rest. You are greatly loved and accepted through the death and resurrection of Jesus.
Let your body rest. We are three in one, and what happens in our flesh affects the whole of us.
Honor the Sabbath somehow today, this week, and acknowledge the gift of God. He is the one who never slumbers or sleeps. He is the one who carries the weight of the world. He is the one who plans and brings those things into existence.
Exodus 33:14 “My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
