Prayer Journal: Day 112

Day 112

My soul finds rest in God alone; my salvation comes from Him. – Psalm 62:1

It’s a glorious thing that the Lord can give us rest for our souls when we are weary.

I often crash land into the Sabbath. By the end of the week, I really need to rest, and God knows I need to restore my spirit. He knows I need to turn my eyes upon Him so that I can refocus my energy on my work during the week to come. 

No other person can bring rest and salvation the way Jesus Christ can. He is the author and finisher of our faith. He cares about us deeply and is present in our lives. 

We need to practice listening to Him and focusing on the everlasting life He offers us. Then the things of Earth can grow dim. Amen. 

Prayer Journal: Day 21

Day 21

If you diligently heed the voice of the Lord your God and do what is right in His sight, give over to His commandments and keep His statutes, I will put none of the disasters on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the Lord who heals you. – Exodus 15:26

The Lord tells us not to buy or sell on the Sabbath. Why? Is it so we devote one day only to Him?

We are so good at breaking and forgetting His commandments, and yet, we pray for protection after making the wrong choices. We need to pray for forgiveness. 

We deserve to rest on the Sabbath so that we can restore our lives both spiritually and physically. Each day is a new day, a new opportunity to start over.
