day 26 – sabbath love
God, through His grace, created us to rest.
He rested in creation, and likewise commanded the Israelites in Exodus 20 to work for six days and to rest on the seventh. God instituted the Sabbath as a part of His love for us.
So how do we find this rest, how do we “do” a Sabbath?
My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from him. He alone is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will never be shaken. Psalm 62:1-2
We find our rest in drawing near to God.
I’m off to church this morning to fellowship with other believers and know His beautiful Sabbath love. Join me, wherever you are, in taking this day as a Sabbath – it’s such a gift from the Lord.
PS. Need some extra verses on rest?
