Break From Your Life

Bible Verse

Genesis 2: 2-3 – And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.

Your Discipleship Minute

Busy, busy, busy. We are always so busy working, playing or just going about the business of our daily lives. But through the creation of the heavens and the earth, God sets a precedent for us to stop and smell the roses, so to speak.

God did not rest on the seventh day because He was tired out from the creative work of the past six days. In His rest, He stopped to enjoy His creation and the glory he received from it. Likewise, we need to set aside one day to stop, enjoy God’s creation all around us and to worship Him and give Him the glory.

Action Point

Take one day each week and devote it to God. Fast from something distracting on that day (such as TV, computers or social media) and use the time instead to study the Bible, pray and worship God.
