Leviticus 25:3-8 (NLT)
3 For six years you may plant your fields and prune your vineyards and harvest your crops, 4 but during the seventh year the land must have a Sabbath year of complete rest. It is the Lord’s Sabbath. Do not plant your fields or prune your vineyards during that year. 5 And don’t store away the crops that grow on their own or gather the grapes from your unpruned vines. The land must have a year of complete rest. 6 But you may eat whatever the land produces on its own during its Sabbath. This applies to you, your male and female servants, your hired workers, and the temporary residents who live with you. 7 Your livestock and the wild animals in your land will also be allowed to eat what the land produces.
8 “In addition, you must count off seven Sabbath years, seven sets of seven years, adding up to forty-nine years in all.”
God isn’t just telling them what NOT to do, He’s actually inviting them TO DO SOMETHING.
He’s inviting them to TRUST Him.
When we TRUST Him, that’s when we find PEACE.
Shalom Peace = Complete/Restored
Shalom Peace = Not the absence of conflict but the PRESENCE of something better in its place.
2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NLT)
16 Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all.
John 14:27 (NLT)
27 “I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.
