Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.
Read Genesis 2:1-3
Do you know that we are created to have a relationship with God? God made us to become like Him. Deep within us, God wired us to respond to a relationship with Him.
God rested on the seventh day not because he is exhausted. He rested to enjoy His creation. According to Westminster Shorter Catechism, “Man’s chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” We are to enjoy a relationship with God. Psalm 73:24-26 says “You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
How’s your relationship with God? How’s your relationship with other people? Let us always find time to rest and enjoy God.
Lord, help me rejoice in my suffering knowing the truth that you will never forsake me.
