Sabbath: Divine Connection to God
Today is the day that is set aside to spend real quality time with God. We are to spend time with God every day and be connected with Him every day, however, today is like “Date Night” day.
This is the day to just spend time with God.
Now, this can be difficult with our world today.
Doing all the things that we think we should be doing.
Did you know way back in the last century, (which really is getting further and further in the past) in 1930, John Maynard Keynes made the statement that his grandchildren would be only working 3 hour work days and would be taking longer, and longer vacations.
What happened to that idea!
I don’t know about you but my husband works 2 jobs and is gone for 14 – 16 hours a day.
That is nowhere near a 3 hour work day.
However, we have more technology and really we as a whole are working 12 hours less a week than 60 years ago.
So why do we feel like we don’t have time to slow down?
We have started to see our time in terms of money instead of our time as the infinite commodity.
We have stopped seeing time as abundant. We see time as something we can waste or we see as being productive in as making money.
Also the explosion of all stuff that is out there. We have so many choices. Just take a look at Amazon, how many millions and millions of things do they for sale each hour.
We have so many choices, we struggle to choose what to buy or what to watch, (Netflix) or all the choices of what to eat. Healthy, Organic, Palo, Low Fat, Vegan. Oh wow the choices, the choices we have contributes the feeling of stressed and not having enough time during the day.
And it keeps us from what is truly important.
God wants your undivided attention, He wants you to block out all the work, all the “should be doing’s” and he wants you to make the easy choice by spending time with Him and know that this is the most important thing you can do.
So forget about everything going on around you and sit and relax in the Lord’s arms.
And know that your lie is divinely guided by God.
Take the knowledge in the knowing that God is always leading you in the best direction.
Take the knowledge that resting on Saturday is the best direction you take.
When you do this and take the whole 24 hours you are letting God take all the choices you think you have to make, you are just going to lay them down at the cross.
You are letting Him know that you are open to receive the unlimited abundance of His time.
You are regenerating your body and soul, healing the body, soul, and mind in spending time with God and understanding what He wants for your life.
When taking time to just breath and relax in the Lord, you can trust more, you are at ease more, you are at peace more.
“The Lord came down on Mount Sinai, to the top of the mountain. And the Lord called Moses to the top of the mountain and Moses went up” Exodus 19:20
“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.” James 4:8
“Blessed is the one you choose and bring near, to dwell in your courts! We shall be satisfied with goodness of your house the holiness of your temple!” Psalms 65:4
Remember to Live Your Life With Passion!
