Rest is Holy Spirit Directed Activity

God didn’t rest because He was tired. God rested because His work was finished. In this classic sermon from 2005, Joseph Prince reveals the principle of the Sabbath. When we do things in our own power, we can get tired quickly. But Holy Spirit directed activity is always refreshing.

Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array.

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.

— Genesis 2:1-3 (NIV)
