Rest, Mid-Week Devotional with Chris Chase

April 17, 2018  •  2 Comments

"By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done." (Genesis 2:2)  After the sixth day of creation, God deliberately stopped working, and rested.  It's not that there was nothing else that He could have done.  It wasn't that He was exhausted, because omnipotence never gets tired.  It was not because He had no more ideas, because omniscience knows no mental limitations.  He could have created a lot more worlds, or created an infinite number of other life forms, or created more millions of galaxies beyond what He did.  But He didn't . . . He stopped and spent an entire day resting.  Not only that, but He also "blessed the seventh day and sanctified it."  He marked this day as something extremely special.  It seems to me that He made the day He rested a "priority" period of time . . . maybe we should do the same!
