While it is important to read the Bible in its entirety, we also must remember to slow down and focus on the text. It’s for this reason that over the past month the Lord has called me to slow down and pause to let the truth of God’s Word soak in. How? By meditating on His Word.  Yup, I went there.

God set the precedent for Sabbath rest One of the very first things we read when we open up the Hebrew Bible is God resting from his work after Creation.  “On the seventh day God had completed his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he...
