Hebrews 4:4 NASB "For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works”"It was on the calendar! Today's verse reminds of taking a day of rest, even God did it! As I looked at my calendar, and the many appointments, I realized that I had forgotten to schedule my day off. Going from one thing to another, day after day, can leave us exhausted, tired and less effective. Remembering to take a day off to rest, and relax and refresh for the days ahead is part of God's Week so why wouldn't it be good for us to do the same. The key of course, is making sure we schedule the day of rest, if not, we will just keep going. Bringing our best before the Lord means being refreshed enough to do exactly that, so take a day, go fishing, hiking, bike riding or whatever you find that brings you rest and peace. Don't just say "yeah I've go to do that" but actually do it! We will be better tomorrow for resting today! peace, tom
