The Lord’s Day

Description

A day that is holy, set apart, a day of rest—that is what the Sabbath is to God.

Isaiah 58: 13

If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath and from doing as you please on my holy day… Then you will find your joy in the Lord, and I will cause you to ride on the heights of the land and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.

A day that is holy, set apart, a day of rest—that is what the Sabbath is to God.  It is a necessity of life and one of the 10 commandments that God gave to us.  Even God took a day to rest after creating the world.  (Genesis 2: 1) But, how many times do we overlook our Sabbath day? How many times do we conduct life on Sunday like it is just a normal day?  The sad answer to those questions is,  too many to mention.

Sunday is our Sabbath and we should honor God’s request for our lives.  God wants the best for us and He knows how important it is for us to rest. Our human nature is constantly in “go” mode—it takes determination to slow down.  A mom, more than anyone, needs a day to rest. A day not to do laundry, a day not to worry about the dishes, a day not to clean, not to cook, not to labor over anything big or small.  A day designed to rest. A day set apart from the other days of the week, to sit and be still or to play a game together as a family.  A day to go to church and be fed, instead of pouring out.  A mom needs that type of a day. This week, start a new tradition in your family—take one day to rest and enjoy the inheritance of God. 

Prayer

Father, I have been remiss in not stopping all my “mom” activities and taking a day to rest.  I tell myself that I must get my work done and I do not have time to rest. But, Lord, I am wrong.  I need to honor You, honor Your word and honor Your command.  I know You will go before me and create more time for me to get my work done.  I choose to obey You instead of doing it all on my own.  Thank You for loving me and desiring the best for me.
