There is a grave disservice we do to ourselves and our families. Our co-workers, and others within our community when we do not enter into a time of rest. The God of all things established a day of rest. A rest from the work that we do. A rest from those things that may be troubling to our hearts and minds. Spiritual growth and discipline require that we enter in and observe a time of rest. A time where we check in and spend time in the service of our Heavenly Father. A time to focus solely on Him and him alone. A time to meditate.
It is not merely enough to enter into the holy sanctuary of prayer and meditation. It is enriching when our prayer and meditation includes daily praise and worship. It is part of our spiritual growth and discipline in the Christian life. If we fail to engage in daily praise and worship, we fall prey to the cares and anxieties of this world. Fear and doubt becoming an all consuming fire.
