“So on the seventh day He rested from all His work.” What a gift you have given us in this small sentence in your mighty Word. It says that my God who is almighty, complete in every way, all powerful and never sleeping rested. I believe you did this for us Lord more than for yourself. You weren’t tired because you never tire or run out of energy. You didn’t say that you needed to take a nap after all of this mighty work you had done of creating. I believe you knew that we as humans need to recharge. That we would go, go, go until we drop and need to have some down time. It goes much deeper though than that. Verse 3 I believe explains it in more detail.
“And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it He rested from all the work of creating what He had done.” This day of rest was about you Lord. This day of rest was Holy and set apart from the previous 6 days. You made it clear that in all that you had done; the creation of skies, sun, moon, stars, all the creatures including man and all the plants and vegetation, this 7th day was different. You saw all of the others and they were good and very good but this day was HOLY, set apart, a day of rest for you. Oh dear Lord! I do not want to miss what this says about you. I don’t want to just feel like this was not as important when I think it might have been the most important of all. Lord guide me and teach me more about who you are. Allow me to know you better by studying this Holy 7th day of creation.
