And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
We reach places where we look back on what has transpired in our life and while we are like, yes that was all the LORD working in my life and it was good, we still wonder how anybody could make any sense out of the mess we call life. It really is, just us, by faith, acknowledging God’s sovereignty but we don’t really understand what it is we know. I know, without doubt, that God is sovereign but to be completely honest, I don’t really understand that.
At the end of each creative day God looked at what He had done, “And God saw that it was good.” However at the end of the of the sixth day, God looked at everything He had made and, “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.” It was only good until He saw the totality of creation or all the parts at once when it then became very good. Once the LORD saw the very good of all creation together versus the just the good of creation individually He could then enter Sabbath Rest.
Hebrews 4:9-10, “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.”
There is a rest from the struggle and strife of trying to be something and from trying to succeed when we can look at the entirety of what God has done in our life and commit it all to Him and say, I may not understand all the individual things that have happened but where those individual things have brought me to today is very good, we will see the LORD bless that seventh day in our life and we will begin to enter into that Sabbath Rest that does in fact exist. “There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.”
