The Lord made this day and blessed it. This day is a special day to rejoice and be glad for the blessings that await you.
In the days of old, it was a strange thing to rest. Isreal was a slave nation and they were forced to work daily to be able to eat. The idea of the Sabbath was new. To rest on the Sabbath implied that they would not get food to eat because meat preservation wasn’t common.
God instituted the Sabbath day so that we can rely on Him and trust Him to supply our needs.
The purpose of that Sabbath is for God’s children to wait on Him and trust on His plans for our lives.
Happy Sabbath day.
