Rest Is Actually A Doing Word

Many have come and gone failing to comprehend the simplicity in God that everything he created is working even while they are resting. When you are looking at them in your mind they are either lazy or loitering but in fact they are tirelessly working.

Genesis 2:1-3 (KJV) Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.

Matthew 6:25 (KJV) Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?

The key to this entire verse is one word life, which is working tirelessly without rest even when you are not doing anything but life is working to keep you alive.

Genesis 1:14 (KJV) And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Both the sun and the moon they are parked somewhere there in the sky and it looks like they are doing nothing, but on the contrary they are doing the most important work of diving the day from the night, be for signs, and for seasons, and for days and years. They are not working but their presence or absence is felt by everyone and everything.

Genesis 1:24 (KJV) And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.

Looking at all animals moving around and lazing under the shadow of trees believe me life is working tirelessly without rest to keep them alive.

Jesus Christ testified about this on Luke 12:24 (KJV) Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

Luke 12:23 (KJV) The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

Exodus 20:8 (KJV) Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

God was saying be still and respect my day and I will show you how I did this thing called life, so that even you may enjoy your hard earned work.

Lord Jesus Christ is God
