Do you have a moment to read about Psalm 91:1?
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
It’s great to sleep in and catch up on our rest. Most of the time, we answer to our alarms (or snooze buttons) as we wake up and begin to get ready for the day. At the end of the day, we may have a little time before bed to relax, but rarely does this provide the kind of rest our soul needs in order to be refreshed.
Rarely do we take the time to enjoy a real day of Sabbath rest. Even Sundays can seem jam-packed with church services, family activities, and preparing for the upcoming week. But as God establishes in Genesis, when he created our world and everything in it, he took a day off. On the seventh day, he rested. Scripture doesn’t say that he only created a couple of little things that day, or that he caught up on all those things he had been meaning to create. No, he rested.
Today, cancel an appointment, reschedule a meeting, or break your routine and simply rest your soul before God.
