How do I find the rest that my body craves and my heart desires? The above verse gives me an excellent model to follow. My God created this earth and everything in it in six days and then He rested. Did He need to rest? Was He tired? Exhausted? No, He's God, I don't really think He gets tired. He rested for us. He did it to give us an example to follow in our earthly lives. He wants us to take time out and contemplate what He has done for us. Time out to worship and praise Him.
Does your bible say anywhere that the Sabbath has to be on Sunday? Mine doesn't. Sunday is a day that you can choose if you want to, but you aren't commanded to make Sunday your day of rest. We are given the freedom to choose our Sabbath day of rest. Whatever day we choose we should focus the majority of our time on Him. Sure, things with the kids and house will still need to be done, but we have to make the time to enjoy some Jesus-rest! Get refreshed, refilled, and re-energized for the six days of work ahead.
What day are you choosing to get some Jesus-rest?
