:but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, you, or your son, or your daughter, your male servant, or your female servant, or your livestock, or the sojourner who is within your gates." -Exodus 20:10 (ESV)
Unplugging from the world must be intentional. If we do not take time to reflect and be still, then it is much harder for us to hear God. If we are not actively listening to what God is telling us then how can we discern what He wills for our lives? How does the person who never takes time to be still know if he or she is running in the right direction? People who chose not to take time to be still are afraid to be still. It’s like looking in a mirror- we know what we are you going to see and we know we don’t like it. Some things we have to accept for they way they are but some things we have the ability to change. In solitude, we confront our own soul with its obscure forces and conflicts that escape are attention when we are interacting with others.
When God created and rested on the last day He paused- and reflected on what He had done. We must also Pause with a Purpose. Reflect. Review. Readjust as necessary.
