Day 3

The Gift of Rest

from the reading plan

Genesis 1:1-31, Genesis 2:1-15; Ecclesiastes 3:1

Start each day by reading the Scripture. During this reading plan, we’ll then use the summary provided here to guide our discussion around the daily reading.

From the very beginning, God established rest as a part of creation, setting the seventh day apart from the other six days of the week. God rested on the seventh day because His work had been fully completed.

    Rest is key to our relationship with God. He rested on the uth day. He also told us to rest “Be still and know I am God.” We get so busy caught up in what we need to do and what we want to do, but He says, “be still.” It is when we rest our minds, bodies, and spirits that we can hear Him speak to us. Take time to rest and be still. Sit quietly and quiet your mind. Give Him praise and then listen.
