"By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work." Genesis 2:2
Even God rested! God never sleeps but He models for us the importance of rest. I know that it feels very selfish, lazy, and unproductive to schedule time for rest (how else will we get ahead?!), but God's commandments (yes, resting is a command!) are in place for our benefit. Most people find that when they do obey God and honor a day of rest, it makes such a positive difference in so many areas of life! You can trust Him with your time. Go ahead, get some rest!
Dear Lord, thank You for modeling what it means to rest. I want to honor and obey your commandments. Show me when and how to schedule rest in my weeks. Amen.
