July 7th Devotional

Psalms 73, Hosea 10-12, Hebrews 4

Lots of wisdom and wise instruction in Hebrews. Hebrews 4:10 for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.

What we learn from this verse an the ones surrounding it is that we need to rest just as God rested. We cannot be all work, we need to rest and refresh ourselves. And God has commanded that we rest. Why is it so hard to take a day of rest? Why must we always be busy?  Perhaps it is that we don’t have faith as it says in verse 2 “For we also have had the gospel preached to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because those who heard it did not combine it with faith.”  So does that mean that if we do not take a day of rest that we don’t have faith?
