I have always enjoyed resting on Sundays as a carry-over from my days of living with my parents. As teenagers, we would sometimes play the piano, sing, read or go for a walk especially at the lake. Enjoying a visit with friends and family over Sunday’s dinner or coffee was also important.
However, in today’s world, many people do not observe Sundays as a rest from their labors.
Lately, I was finding excuses to go to a store on the way home from church or perhaps catch up on some housework. However, upon reading the scriptures and listening to the Holy Spirit, I purposed afresh to observe God’s wonderful rest.
REST ON MY SABBATH
My child, it is no surprise to Me when people who read My
Word daily often do not ‘see’ many of My instructions.
I am glad you are rediscovering I want you to rest on My Sabbath.
You have known the benefits of resting one day a week.
However, as with many spiritual disciplines,
You know how easy it is to get confused when you are bombarded
with many contradicting messages.
You will have to guard this day of rest zealously.
As with any habit, it takes twenty-one times
as you have learned, to form a new pattern of behavior.
I want this rest to become a delightful, common practice in your life.
I will help you, as I am pleased to have you enjoy
a worshipful day of rest.
