Did you know that your Heavenly Father can’t wait to meet with you today?  It’s true!  Spend a minute or two dwelling on that and then read the passage below using your Bible Study Insert.

 

Deuteronomy 5:12-15

 

Our reaction to passages like today’s from God’s Word is usually pretty similar as it was from the first receivers of God’s Command to rest: “That doesn’t work in the 21st Century.  That doesn’t work in my family, my schedule, my industry.  I am very important and super busy.  This command is for people who aren’t as busy/important as I.  People NEED me!” 

 

But God says, “This is how you’re going to learn to TRUST me.  I’ll provide for you.  It doesn’t have to make sense.  I just want you to take a day each week to rest.”

 

What excuses come to mind that keep you from following God’s command to rest?  What do you sense your Heavenly Father speaking to you?  How is He calling you to respond?
