“THE COVENANT OF REST – Genesis 2:2-3 (NKJV) – “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.
Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all his work which God had created and made.
As we rolled into the year, God gave us a word & that word is REST. We pointed out that the principle of rest showed up right from the beginning of creation. Our planet is not designed to run endlessly, even our systems as human; hence rest is part of the process.
The purpose of this rest is renewal. Not only do our bodies get renewed, our soul, which is the most important part of us also need to be renewed. The renewal of our spirit & soul was designed to happen during intimacy with God which is the essence of the seventh day.”
