The purpose of the Sabbath was for us to give our rest to the Lord. It is not designed as a rest day from just our work. It is also designed so that I could give a complete rest to the Lord (Exodus 35:2).
What does that mean? It means that I don’t just take a rest for myself. I can also give a rest to the Lord. I can give a rest to God by devoting a time of prayer and reflection about Him.
Prayer: God, thank You for Your Sabbath that. You have given me as a reminder of my rest in You.
