Our journey in the God Hunt has taken us on a soul safari to find purpose, rest, and now hope. Our souls desperately need hope to survive.
This week in our God Hunt we’ve been exploring the rest that our souls long for. The Life Application Study Bible notes offers this insight into our understanding of the rest God offers us.
Under the New Covenant, Jesus is Lord, even over the Sabbath. You don’t have to become legalistic to keep the Sabbath. It was intended to be a blessing and not a burden, to be enjoyed, not endured.
The Sabbath was designed to refuel your soul, recharge your emotions and rest your body.

God never created us to work 24/7. Maybe you’ve tried and are finding your soul is now restless and burned out.
Real rest, the kind of rest God designed for us to experience, will satisfy the longing of our souls. This rest is only found in the One who Created us.

When we choose to trust God that every problem has a purpose, we can’t help but wonder what that purpose is.
