Today's word is Rest, after putting in hours of hard labor on a job; we look for ward to resting after work. It's very important that the children of God get their needed rest ; this is why God blessed and sanctified the seven day to make it holy unto rest, because that in it he had rested from all his work: which God had made. We know for a fact that rest is very important to God or he wouldn't have made blessed and sanctified the seventh day, just for a rest period for mankind.
We need rest so we can regroup and recuperate and began a new day with vigor and energy. Rest is a blessing from God, to relax and enjoy in it.So let's use the day of rest to fully rejuvenate and give us the needed energy and power to continue our fight with Satan and the principalities of of life. Rest is a four letter word that gives us power to sustain ourselves.
