I’ve been guilty of moving too fast through life that I haven’t stopped to truly appreciate the things that God has blessed me with and the things that He has made. Yes God made us to be productive people however He also made it so that we can take time out and rest. Rest is necessary for rejuvenation and allows us to be the best we can be.
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 NKJV)
And He said “My Presence will go with you and I will give you rest.” (Exodus 33:14)
So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God. For all who have entered into God’s rest have rested from their labors, just as God did after creating the world. So let us do our best to enter the rest. But if we disobey God, as the people of Israel did, we will fall. (Hebrews 4:9-11 NLT)
He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in the path of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Psalms 23:2-3 NKJV)
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth. (Psalms 46:10 NJKV)
