29 Days of Believing ~ Sabbath

Sabbath!  the name itself is restful! and worthy of meditation.....
 A day when we can rest from work, daily chores, remember that the worlds birthday is on that day, enjoy creation, take the time to enjoy inspirational music and reading, a day for family and friends, a day to remember how good God is, for the Spirit to recreate a new frame of mind even amidst the chaos of raising kids, as I very well remember.  The Sabbath gives us a reason to know our beginning and end.  It gives us our time.  A blessing seems to just follow this day.

The Sabbath
Genesis 2:1-3 Click here
Psalms 33:6  By the Word of the Lord were the heavens made. All the host of them by the breath of His mouth
Psalms 33:9 For He spake and it was done, He commanded and it stood fast

Exodus 20

New International Version (NIV)

The Ten Commandments

20 And God spoke all these words:
“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand) generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.  For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12 “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
13 “You shall not murder.
14 “You shall not commit adultery.
15 “You shall not steal.
16 “You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
17 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
