November 22– Exodus 35:1-9

November 22– Exodus 35:1-9

Moses assembled all the congregation of the people of Israel and said to them, “These are the things that the Lord has commanded you to do. Six days work shall be done, but on the seventh day you shall have a Sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on it shall be put to death. You shall kindle no fire in all your dwelling places on the Sabbath day.”

Moses said to all the congregation of the people of Israel, “This is the thing that the Lord has commanded. Take from among you a contribution to the Lord. Whoever is of a generous heart, let him bring the Lord's contribution: gold, silver, and bronze; blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen; goats' hair, tanned rams' skins, and goatskins; acacia wood, oil for the light, spices for the anointing oil and for the fragrant incense, and onyx stones and stones for setting, for the ephod and for the breastpiece.

A day of rest! God has provided for His people in every possible way. Are you able to take a day of rest? Ask God today to help you find a way to spend a day of rest and worship with Him. He will make a way.

Heavenly Father, You know what we need before we do and in ways we will never understand.  I don’t understand everything about You or why You do things the way You do, but I have no doubt that You know what is best and want us to participate in Your best.  One of the things You wanted for Your children as they escaped from slavery in Egypt, was rest.  That day of rest You gave as a command because You knew they weren’t used to taking a day to rest.  They as slaves were worked every single day and many hours each day and that didn’t allow them time to worship and rest physically or spiritually.  Help us to take time to spend with You, honor You, and rest in You.

In Jesus’ name.
