When we first began celebrating Shabbat, it was so hard to rest. The command seemed to prevent me from doing some of the things I thought I wanted to do.
Then, over time, I began to transition to a right understanding and observance. If the Sabbath was made for man, then Abba knows we need rest. How wonderful now to know for this 24 hours, because it is His time and He says ‘Rest!’ that I can really shut down and not worry about anything. My duty is to rest. A most pleasurable duty.
‘For six days work may be done, but on the seventh day there is a sabbath of complete rest, a holy convocation. You shall not do any work; it is a sabbath to the Lord in all your dwellings.
Leviticus 23 NASB
