So we know that Sunday is a day of rest, for even God gave himself a break on this day. We are told to rest on this day as a day for spiritual rejuvenation.
Genesis 2:3 shows us God’s rest by saying ” And God blessed the seventh day and declares it holy, because this is the day he rested from his work of creation”.
See without this day of rest it would be very difficult to deal with the other matters of this life. God Offers this day as a gift to all of his children. This is a spiritual gift a special rest. For all who enter into God’s rest will find rest from their labors.
Yes God is speaking of our rest from our physical jobs, but he is also speaking of rest from the labor of our minds. The wear and tear of stressful thinking, the burden of our minds.
We are told we must do our best to enter into this special rest that’s offered to preserve our spiritual growth. See if we are always working always bogged down with the emotions of this life, this is were sin, the evil one can sneak in.
We have to rest, rest our bodies and our minds from there labors. But don’t rest your mind from Jesus! Stay focused on him always! For Jesus is our true rest. Jesus is our true strength and rest from this weary world we live in. The comfort to our soul.
We are told this in Matthew 11 verse 28-29. Jesus said ” come to me all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle, and you will find rest for your soul.
So I tell you friends, take your rest, find your peace. For God commands us that we clear our minds and bodies from these worldly problems, and focus our hearts and minds on the one true prince of peace in Jesus Christ.
Take care of yourselves, allow yourself to rest and build up your spirit. We do not have to be go, go, go all the time. Even God rested from his works. So rest your body rest your minds, it’s ok.
For God loves his children, and desires us to live a great life, one in his son Jesus Christ. If you want this peace, this love in your life, I ask you to pray with me today:
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for all that you do in this life father, thank you for your blessings and care, thank you that you offer us peace and rest, help free us from these worlds problems and stresses, you are my hope, my strength Lord, and it’s in your mighty name we pray Jesus, Amen.
If you said that prayer know God’s going to work in your life today. Expect this peace, expect his comfort because God loves you so very much!
