This is a great spiritual principle in the Bible and in our daily Christian life, and it is based on the fact that God created man not to WORK for Him but for man to be satisfied with God and rest with God!

This clearly shows that even though God created man in His image and likeness and wants man to express Him and represent Him, the first thing God wants man to do is to enjoy Him, rest in Him and be satisfied with Him! This is a sign – a perpetual covenant, between God and His people – we firstly rest with God and enjoy God, and then we can work for God. Man was and is God’s refreshment! Man in God’s image with a spirit to fellowship with God, be God’s companion and counterpart – is God’s refreshment and His satisfaction! And we have a spirit that delights in God and fellowships with God – there is a deeper part in our being that is satisfied and can be filled only with God!
