[QTVOTD] The Sabbath!!!

“If you turn away your foot from [traveling unduly on] the Sabbath, from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a [spiritual] delight, the holy day of the Lord honorable, and honor Him and it, not going your own way or seeking or finding your own pleasure or speaking with your own [idle] words, then will you delight yourself in the Lord, and I will make you to ride on the high places of the earth, and I will feed you with the heritage [promised for you] of Jacob your father; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it.” Isaiah 58:13-14 ->me: The points being made here by Isaiah are very focused on our minds being entirely directed towards the Lord for just one day of the week. A day where we dwell on God, what He has done for us, His grace, His mercy, and more we can learn about Him. The thing that jumps out the most at me is Isaiah’s divinely insightful thought on when we find Spiritual delight in the Sabbath we will then delight in ourselves in the Lord…we will be encouraged in our own walk. This is revolutionary for me!! Let me say this another way – What Isaiah is saying is…when I look on the Sabbath day as a spiritual delight (not a pain because I miss the Seahawks game or miss the pruning that needs done in the yard) then I myself will be delighted in my own life in the Lord and God will give me the best of what the world has to offer – just read Deuteronomy 32:13-14 where Moses describes what the ‘ride on high places of the earth’ is. The Sabbath is integral to finding a little of heaven here on earth. Look at what my family is missing out on!!
