And by the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested (ceased) on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. So God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it [as His own, that is, set it apart as holy from other days], because in it He rested from all His work which He had created and done. – Genesis 2:2-3 AMP
Taking time to rest, to set aside time for personal care is so very important. It allows us time and space to reflect, talk to God, and renew and refresh our Spirit. Taking time to rest is an opportunity to experience God’s goodness and to honor Him.
Rest is that time of holy consecration, a time of reflecting upon experience have had. Never neglect yourself.
Yet, when we take the best care of ourselves, God can truly spend intimate time with us, pouring in, strengthening, and grooming us for Him.
Take time for one’s self. Spend time reflecting and resting in the Lord – you’ll get to know God more, He will give you His wisdom, He will give you His purpose, He will share His peace, and you’ll feel all the better for it.
