Everyone likes to save money and one of the best ways to do that is to pack your own lunch. You’ll eat less junk, save both money and time and be sure to get the right sized portion.
You won’t be held up by slow restaurant service. You might even eat your lunch in the park. Your boss will be impressed when you only take your allotted time to eat
Our time with God is just like that. When we read a few chapters, reflect on God’s goodness and ask him to help us through the day, its like money in the bank. It’s a savings plan for the day ahead. When we know what God is like and what he expects from us, we are ready to face anything. Why, it’s like eating your lunch in the park!
After all, even David took his lunch to work.
Then he took his staff in his hand and chose five smooth stones out of the brook and put them in his shepherd’s [lunch] bag [a whole kid’s skin slung from his shoulder], in his pouch, and his sling was in his hand, and he drew near the Philistine. (1 Samuel 17:40, AMP)
Prayer – Lord, thank you for meeting with us, even over our lunch bag. Amen
[Exodus 20: 8 -10]
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. “Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath of the LORD your God; in it you shall not do any work, you or your son or your daughter, your male or your female servant or your cattle or your sojourner who stays with you.”
As long as they kept the Sabbath, God also protected the people of Israel..
Sometimes, some church members come to receive prayer after getting involved in some traffic accidents or with accidents He protected them from tests and trials and various kinds of disasters.
This spiritual principle is applied in the same way today. We can be protected and blessed only when we belong to God as His children by keeping the Sabbathin their business fields.
Most of these cases are the ones in which they violated the Sabbath or did not give the tithes.
Being protected and blessed is important, but the most important thing is the salvation of our spirit.
At the time of the Exodus, a certain person collected some fire wood on a Sabbath, and God did not forgive him. God told them to kill him.
It was to tell them that even Israelites had to fall into death because from the moment they did not keep the Sabbath they had nothing to do with God.
This spiritual justice is applied in the same way today.
If we do not keep the Sunday, we have nothing to do with God, and we will have to fall into death.
I am not talking about the newcomers to the church and new believers who have weak faith.
I am talking about those cases in which they have faith and know the truth but do not keep the Sunday, or the cases in which they say they keep it but actually they are not keeping it properly.
But if we understand the true intention of God in commanding us to keep the Sabbath, we won’t feel forced to keep it in fear.
