24/6 The Rest of God
If anyone could justify not resting, it would be Jesus. He had three years to start a movement that would change the world. But He still chose to rest. We should follow His example.
Creating a rhythm between work and rest is important. However, we must be sure that we do not confuse “rest” with “leisure.” We can be just as out of balance by not working enough as we can by not resting enough. Sometimes the challenge is trusting God with our rest during the time of harvest.
Our culture is 24/7 pace; it doesn’t work. We are designed to have margin. Declare freedom from this slavery and bring the Sabbath into your life and make it a day of joy. Be still and know that I am God.
