september 17 – 23 scripture picture chiastic structure
My takeaway in my prayer journal:
He has made us and blessed us, and without Him we can do nothing. It is He who works in us to obey Him, for He has already received us and redeemed us from Sheol. As we abide in Him, resting brings abundant satisfaction, for He satisfies the longing soul. Sabbath rest – Rest in Him – encompasses the teaching of the Torah, and the testimony of the Feasts.
The feeling that I get is that as things get crazier in the world, our response is to get more deeply restful, peaceful, and calmed, abiding in His rest, His testimony, His teaching, His Torah, and His satisfaction that He so abundantly provides. We are made by Him and without Him we will not make it — but in Him life will be richer than ever before!
