S2 Ep. 09 - Entering Into Rest with Michayla Krohe

About this Episode

Hi! Welcome to the Creative Force podcast. In this episode, I speak with Michayla Krohe about “Entering Into Rest.”  Michayla studied at the Israel Bible Center and in this episode, she shares her love for Jewish culture, the significance of Shabbat, and the power in pausing during our busy lives.

Scriptures Mentioned

By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. – Genesis 2:2-3

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” – Luke 22:19

Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? – Isaiah 58:6

“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, 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. – Isaiah 58:13-14

My Takeaways

Understanding Judaism gives better context to what God was saying then and now.

Shabbat is the Hebrew word for Sabbath. It means literally to cease, to stop, and pause.

Shabbat is a wiping away of the cares of the week. Jewish day begins in the evening. Shabbat begins Friday evening.

To intentionally stop is difficult and it takes practice.

We can trust that everything will be okay if we don’t check our emails.

God can speak through everything.

Shabbat is an invitation, and you can choose to RSVP.

Catch yourself when your mind is swirling.
