Today’s Prayer (02/14/2022)

Oh Lord, I am so grateful to know You. You are so near unto those who give ear to Your words. You have never failed me. You have taught me so much as I read in Exodus, chapter 20, today. These ten commandments are beautiful in every sense of the word. I often wonder why people would not want to obey them today, for those who love You it is a joy to obey them. People who see Your laws as burdensome, I wonder about their faith in You. I am grateful, God, that I have the privilege to read the ten commandments. These laws really do help us love You more and our neighbors as ourselves. As for today, I am pondering upon You and Your fourth commandment, which is the Sabbath day. Thank You for bringing this single law to my attention, that I might reflect on it, in order to see how I am lacking when it comes to observing it. How can I be a teacher of the word if I cannot even rest on the seventh day. For this reason, when Saturday comes, I rest more and cannot get enough of the Bible. Listening to sermons, Christian music, and doing good is what I love about it. It is a joy to honor You, God. I love You and Your laws so much. Amen.

Exodus 20:8-11

Exodus 20:8-11 (KJV)
8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

The Ten Commandments: #4

God has commanded His people to observe the Sabbath day. This law is extended to His believers in the new covenant also.
