A Day of Blessing
"God blessed the seventh
day" (Genesis 2:3). The Sabbath is a day of blessing. We may receive
blessings every week when we keep the Sabbath day.
When the Israelites were staying
in the wilderness, God gave them twice the amount of food from heaven every
sixth day so they would not need to work for food on the Sabbath day.
Today, many who put aside their
own work to keep the Sabbath testify that God has indeed blessed them much more
as a result. When we keep the Sabbath by faith, God will provide for our needs.
Resting on the Sabbath is like enjoying a paid vacation, and better.
In addition, we will receive God's
spiritual blessings, which are far more precious than the material provisions.
The Lord promised those who honor the Sabbath, "you shall take delight in
the Lord, and I will make you ride upon the heights of the earth; I will feed
you with the heritage of Jacob your father" (Isaiah 58:14). God himself,
along with his love, peace, joy, comfort, strength, and his glorious Kingdom will
be ours forever.
