    November 7

    A Day of Rest

    Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord.

    Exodus 31:15, nkjv

    Like a boat that would be tossed endlessly and aimlessly and dangerously on the open sea without an anchor, we need to anchor our lives as well. That anchor is devotion to God. God worked for six days during that first "week" then rested on the seventh: "And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done" (Gen. 2:3, niv). The word holy means "set apart," or different from ordinary things.

    From the law in Exodus we know one reason for this day of devotion is to ensure that we do not get too far away from God's pattern. If one out of every seven days we are anchored by our focus on Him, we are less likely to drift from Him. On the other hand, if one day each week is not spent in giving Him our attention, we are more likely to put Him further and further away from our thoughts until we do not seriously think of Him at all, and we end up being tossed about on the sea of life only to wind up being smashed and broken on the rocks when a storm hits.
