Come, that you might find rest. Labor begins for man, and ceases not until the first death, but he who runs [continuously] cannot sustain. Follow My lead as you are called. Rest on the seventh day. Six you shall labor and the seventh you shall set aside that your life would be whole. He who does not rest, spends what is not his, and receives not what he needs. Come close in praise, in thanksgiving of the week received, of the work given of My provision. You need not labor as the slave. Take that of which I give, that you would receive what is needed. Obey, and the blessing of rest will pay far greater than the wage of work, for in it, you and those given also, will know its rest and peace. Hear the commandment, and know its provision; it gives far greater than it removes.
Exodus 34:21 (ESV) – Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. In plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.
Bottom Line: Schedules and bills can push us to work without rest. Give God the seventh day, and see if the following work week isn’t better because of it. Try taking one day, dedicated to Him, your family, and to a good rest, and let His Word work in you.
