Today is a Rest Day. There is no new Bible reading to do. Today, the goal is simple: rest in the presence of God. Maybe you need to use today to get caught up on the reading plan if you’re behind, maybe you want to journal what you’re learning so you don’t forget what God is teaching you, or maybe you want to spend time in concentrated prayer–do that. Above all, just spend time in God’s presence. Each Rest Day, we will also introduce a memory verse for the week. Meditate on this week’s verse and begin to memorize it.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
Who says Scripture memorization has to be boring? Make it a game! Write the verse out on notecards, a different word for each card. Then, shuffle them around and place them back in the correct order from memory.

We should be in a continuous state of praise, even when we are at rest. The peace God allows us during rest refreshes us to continue in his work the rest of the week. When in close relationship with God, everything we experience should bring us joy. Faith fuels our joy, and when coupled with peace naturally gives us the space for praise. The psalmist instructs us to praise Him at all times, so why not when we are at rest?
