God is sovereign, not just over history but also in a special way over His people. Everything He determines for his people does, and will, come to pass. The way that God overrules in the affairs of his church is done in accordance with his perfect justice and righteousness. And right at the heart of his sovereign will was, and is, the fulfillment of the covenant promise in the person of His dear and beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.
“Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is a sabbath to the LORD your God…For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”
