Why are there...

...rests in music? Is it because the musicians get tired and need to pause between notes, or is it to use silences to create the desired textures and patterns of the music?

A ceasing in activity (or resting) does not necessarily coincide with weariness. A lawyer 'rests' his case, not out of weariness, but because the presentation of the arguments is considered developed enough to stop.

Where does it say the Creator was anything like exhausted? It's just indicating a cessation of the creative activity of the prior period.
