I believe this part if the creation story was meant for us. It is not good for us to work 24/7. Almost like a modeled behavior. I have also heard that rested doesn't mean taking a break, rather it means to finish. God bless.
Well, from the first chapter of Genesis, we learn that God prepared the earth for human habitation during six figurative days. The end of each of these periods is marked by the words: “There came to be evening and there came to be morning.” (Gen. 1:5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31) However, with respect to the seventh day, the Bible states: “God proceeded to bless the seventh day and make it sacred, because on it he has been resting from all his work that God has created.”—Gen. 2:3.
Notice the form of the verb “has been resting.” That suggests that the seventh day—God’s “day” of rest—was under way when Moses wrote the book of Genesis.
We must remember the purpose of the seventh day. Genesis 2:3 explains what it is: “God proceeded to bless the seventh day and make it sacred.” That day was ‘made sacred’—sanctified, or set apart, by Him—in order to bring his purpose to completion. That purpose is for the earth to be inhabited by obedient men and women who will take care of it and all life upon it. (Gen. 1:28) It is toward the realization of that purpose that both God and His Son, Jesus Christ, the “Lord of the sabbath,” have “kept working until now.” (Matt. 12:8)
I believe it is not permissible to say that the creator the same as created, for example, saying that God created the universe in six days and on seventh day God rested tired. Or that the creature the same as the creator, for example, saying that Jesus is the son of God. But I believe that He is the God, the One. The Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need, He neither eats nor drinks. He begets not, nor was He begotten. And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.
God created everything that been created in six literal days He rested on the seventh for an example for us. The Bible tells us that God neither slumbers or sleeps. He is total control . And l believe that Jesus is coequal with the Father just as the Holy Spirit three in one. All that any could need if u are worried about working on Sunday or something don't be God gave that job and He knew the hours it would involve for example Salvation is a gift enjoy it So is your time off enjoy it
Creation Day 7 (Genesis 2:1-3) God rests. This in no way indicates He was weary from His creative efforts, but denotes that the creation is complete. Further, God is establishing a pattern of one day in seven to rest. The keeping of this day will eventually be a distinguishing trait of the God's chosen people (Exodus 20:8-11).http://www.gotquestions.org/creation-days.html
