When we’ve been working diligently, it can be tempting to just keep going, hoping either to break through obstacles or simply to maintain forward momentum. Yet God did not design us to work without stopping. A good night’s sleep, a change of pace, keeping a weekly Sabbath, times of solitude and silence—He invites us to step away to find rest and refreshment in Him. What times of refreshing are part of your schedule?

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.—Genesis 2:2-3

Prayer: God, thank You for Your example of taking time to reflect on each day’s work and then to rest. Show me where I need to build times of reflection, rest, and refreshment into my work. I pray in Jesus’ name, amen.
