This morning exhausted from working three jobs not having my day of rest I’m feeling drained. My devotional started with trust in the Lord with all those heart, lean not on thine own understanding, in all your ways aknowledge him and he will direct your path. In the morning I use three apps for Bible study and then I read the Proverb of the day for wisdom. The second app I opened was on entering into God’s rest.This devotion started with on the 6th day you shall work on the 7th you shall rest. I immediately looked up the definition for the word shall. It means -expressing a strong assertion or intention. God puts a string emphasis on the just one day of rest. God himself rested on the 7th day.
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
Yesterday morning I was barely able to listen to my church online because I had to be in at 11:30am. The little bit I did listen to filled me with joy. It was noticable and my coworkers said you’re in a good mood. As they grumbled and looked like sour pusses because they don’t have what I have. By the end of the day everyone was cranky. Weekends are busiest so that would be understandable. But I was seeing it was much deeper than that. Managers put in extra long days and are the crankiest of them all. The manager on call snipped at me for no reason. Then I saw him inside snipping at his girlfriend because she didn’t do something right. I said I think you’re working too much His eyes softened as knew I identified where his attitude came from. I realized by the end of the day I was feeling cranky too. The environment really gets to you. And I believe the lack of rest does too. I’m needing to give my two weeks notice and trust God to build my business I make in one hour what I do in 7 hours at this job. God has to come first in order for anything to fall in place.
I started reading these two articles that did deeper studies on the rest of God. And I’m adding the link to First 15 another app that the message was based on the rest of God.
Enter into his rest be at peace 🕊️
