Time with God - Apr. 26, 2011


Exodus 20:9-11

Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day; therefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day and made it holy.

Tiredness makes you spiritually vulnerable!

Rest is an important part of God’s plan for your life. He knows that you get tired. He made you in such a way that you need to stop and have times of rest and worship. God’s remedy for stress was to give us one day in seven as a special day of rest.

So important was this day of rest that God included it as one of the Ten Commandments. Our passage today comes from these ten great commands.

The devil will seize any opportunity to tempt us, and one of his best times is when we are tired. God loves you deeply and wants you to take time each week to rest and focus on Him. Making these regular rest periods a priority will recharge and refresh you. You’ll find it’s good for you both physically and spiritually.
