God is our ALL-Sufficiency

The Sabbath is made for man and not man for the Sabbath - this speaks of the fact that God created this holy day that we may set time and space for Him to realise that He is sufficient for all things in our lives.
Let us be careful where we go, what we do and what we say on the Sabbath.
Our KPI (Kingdom Progressive Index) for Sabbath-keeping is to know that it is a time to:
1. Draw near to Him and rest in His sufficiency so that our devotional life will move from duty to delight
2. Get right with Him and return to His saving grace so that our relational life will move from community to family
3. Stand up for Him and recognise His sovereignty so that our vocational life will move from work to calling

Miktam Psalm

Recently I have been reading Psalm 16 which is classified as a miktam. A miktam is an inscription or engraving and there are only 6 of these miktam psalms.
This 'golden' psalm is to be 'worn' as an engraving on our hearts that we may not forget to trust in the Lord in whose presence we have fullness of joy.
This presence we will know if we set the Lord continually to be in front of us as we follow Him.
