THE SABBATH, REST, NO MONKEYS ON MY BACK.
About ten years ago, a counselor in Phoenix said I was burnt out because I did not honor or obey the Sabbath. He used the term, “YOU HAVE MONKEYS ON YOUR BACK ALL DAY LONG that are telling you what to do.” WOW, that statement was a game-changer for me. I have not been perfect since but have honestly tried to uphold what Isaiah 58:13 onwards commands us to honor the Sabbath.
13 “If you keep your feet from breaking the Sabbath
and from doing as you please on my holy day,
if you call the Sabbath a delight
and the Lord’s holy day honorable,
and if you honor it by not going your own way
and not doing as you please or speaking idle words,
14 then you will find your joy in the Lord,
and I will cause you to ride in triumph on the heights of the land
and to feast on the inheritance of your father Jacob.”
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
