Oh Lord, I am so grateful for Your sacrifice on the cross for my sins. Thank You for redeeming me through Your blood. You are the only person who has the power to save us. Your mercy and grace sustain my life and helps me to know that You love me. I am grateful to be delivered from my sinful life. I was filled with my own false beliefs until the day that You came into my life and set me free. It has been a long journey with You by my side, but I am grateful to have You with me. No longer will I live this life comfortless again. Your sabbath is my day of rest. Although I rest with You on a daily basis, I am willing to give up working one day a week to rest with You fully. May my mind be liked unto Yours. Give me wisdom, God. My desire is to know Your plans for me and others. First, help me to live under Your standards, then, will I know how to rightly judge others. In everything I do, I do it for You. You are my lifeblood, of whom I love more than life itself. Lord, lead me this hour and for the rest of my life. Build me up in Your armor, so that when temptation comes, Satan will flee. I love You, Lord. Amen.
Leviticus 25:1-4 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses in mount Sinai, saying,
2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye come into the land which I give you, then shall the land keep a sabbath unto the Lord.
3 Six years thou shalt sow thy field, and six years thou shalt prune thy vineyard, and gather in the fruit thereof;
4 But in the seventh year shall be a sabbath of rest unto the land, a sabbath for the Lord: thou shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.
There was a time when people observed a year-long sabbath, but those days are over. The seventh day is still ok to rest on, however.
