“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work.” (Gen 2:2)
Is working an idea from God? Yes it is. He even demonstrated it from the beginning. We all know that He rested to demonstrate a day of rest, but He also worked to demonstrate work. It is blindingly obvious when you stop and think about it.
He planned, implemented, considered, and moved in structured steps. He stopped to review periodically, made sure it was good, and then moved to the next stage.
He could have spoken it all in one word, yet He chose to demonstrate work. Work is intrinsically good because it was birthed in the heart of God. It has value just in its execution. God is good, God works, and therefore work is good. What did He rest from? Work.
Quick Prayer: Thank You for demonstrating work and showing that it has value. Amen.
