"God is jealous for the honour of his sabbaths.
If walking out on the sabbath
to seek for food was thus reproved,
walking out on that day purely to find our own pleasure
cannot be justified."
Matthew Henry Commentary on Exodus 16:23
When God has called me to rest, even the tiniest distraction that draws me away from Him can lead me to disobedience, worry, and wandering. God has called me to worship Him alone. He gives me rest so that I may be able to worship Him. He knows all the things that are vying for my attention, that are calling my name.
My prayer is that His whispers of my name calling me to Him will be louder than the distractions of the world. He is jealous for honor and worship. I don't want to hold back. He doesn't hold back on me.
