For all who enter into God’s rest will find rest from their labors, just as God rested after creating the world.
Rest–Anapauso (Greek), Nuwach, Shabat (Hebrew) to cause from work, to settle down, to relax from doing work; removal of burdens; time of Sabbath.
Our God rested on the seventh day in the beginning, not because he was tired or weary, but to indicate the completion of His creation. He also set an example for us to follow as well. God had created a perfect world and He said that it was good and very good.
God wants us to put in our Time, Efforts, Talents and our Treasures toward building up His kingdom here on Earth. He needs us to do our duties to spread the Gospel of Jesus the Christ to the whole world. But He also wants us to take our times of rest.
In the bible, Holy Days or Sabbath Days were special times of sacrifice, celebration, feasting, studying God’s word, worshiping and no working. These special times could last for a day, a week, a month or even a whole year.
God wants us to enter a time of rest. He encouraged the people of Israel to do this by way of the Law of Moses. He wants to encourage us to partake of rest now, by way of vacation times, holiday celebrations and anniversary recognition. Resting Is Blessing Yourself!
God always allows us to know what is ahead for us. The rest He showed us from the beginning of the world is a small part of our Eternal Joy and Happiness, which we will have when God renews creation. That time is coming. Our daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly rests in the Lord will not end in this life or at death, but they will become an Eternal Rest and Peace in a place that Jesus the Christ and Savior has prepared for us in Glory ( John 14:1-4). AMEN!
