Day 26: Sweet Sabbath

January 27, 2020

Another Sunday, another Bible verse. If you've been following this months devotional you know the drill. It's late and I am tired after writing two papers and a project for grad school. Today God has reminded me yet again of the importance of a rest day! My personal goal is to finish all my homework BEFORE Sunday so I can take this day as a true Sabbath. What keeps you working when you should be resting? I am slowly but surely learning how to prioritize my time, and that includes making time for rest. Please share with me any tips you have! Anyways, here is your Sunday verse(s). God keeps bringing this chapter of Isaiah up to me so I thought I'd share. Take some time to reflect on these verses and listen to what the Lord is speaking to you through them. Happy Sabbath, friends. 

 

"This is what the Lord says:

“Maintain justice
    and do what is right,
for my salvation is close at hand
    and my righteousness will soon be revealed.
 Blessed is the one who does this—
    the person who holds it fast,
who keeps the Sabbath without desecrating it,
    and keeps their hands from doing any evil.”

 Let no foreigner who is bound to the Lord say,
    “The Lord will surely exclude me from his people.”
And let no eunuch complain,
    “I am only a dry tree.”

 For this is what the Lord says:

“To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths,
    who choose what pleases me
    and hold fast to my covenant—
 to them I will give within my temple and its walls
    a memorial and a name
    better than sons and daughters;
I will give them an everlasting name
    that will endure forever.
And foreigners who bind themselves to the Lord
    to minister to him,
to love the name of the Lord,
    and to be his servants,
all who keep the Sabbath without desecrating it
    and who hold fast to my covenant—
 these I will bring to my holy mountain
    and give them joy in my house of prayer.
Their burnt offerings and sacrifices
    will be accepted on my altar;
for my house will be called
    a house of prayer for all nations.”
 The Sovereign Lord declares—
    he who gathers the exiles of Israel:
“I will gather still others to them
    besides those already gathered.”

 

Isaiah 56:1-8
