A God of siesta's (1 Kings 8:56)

"Blessed be the Lord who has given rest to his people Israel, according to all that he promised. Not one word has failed of all his good promise, which he spoke by Moses his servant." - 1 Kings 8:56

This hit home tonight. I'm tired. I had three doctors appointments today, with a chiropractor, dentist, and then optometrist. Then I came home and spent about 5 hours on my Hebrew class. Not to mention my little girl was having a rough day and pretty much didn't sleep today, just stirred and wined and couldn't relax. - The Lord gave rest to Israel.

I'm glad I serve a God that's not a God of works but a God of grace who even made provision from the beginning of the world for rest. Then He fulfilled his promises.

I worship a God who has promised an awful lot, and made provision for rest. Someday, I will look back and say, "Blessed be the Lord, who gave me rest, according to all he promised. He fulfilled all he promised to his children."
