As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).
This week’s scripture is:
Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.”Mark 2:27
God values rest.
I find rest when I obey God’s word.
God set an example for the importance of rest. When we become believers, we release the ways and customs of this world. This means finding time to rest and honor God. Even as the world rushes busily past us, we know that God is always at work. Our rest reminds us that nothing we do, can ever outdo the work of God. We rest out of reverence for the Sovereign One. The One who provides even as we slumber.
Will you trust in God’s promises and find rest this week? OR Will you worry while trying to do everything in your own strength?
The choice to surrender is yours.
