Psalm 23:3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.
28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength.Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
This morning I awoke to the sound of my phone beeping, telling me that the battery was running low. I know those who have been around me more than five minutes find it hard to believe that I am capable of running out a cell battery,, amazingly enough, I can!
Our Precious Father provided me a topic for today’s devotional early when I heard my phone’s plea for a charge. Yes, I am just now getting around to sharing it.
Being Wednesday, some will head off to a mid-week service. Others have their own way of re-filling with the Lord. Hopefully we are able to do this at some point each day.
One point of the devotional is that we all need to be refilled, renewed and revived.
My youngest daughter, while away at college, ran our suv for months until the engine finally gave up and quit. The “check engine” light, we discovered, was ignored for a long while. “I thought it would get brighter or make some kind of noise if it REALLY needed attention”! Seriously, was the roaring NOT a sufficient call for help!
What are the “warning signs” that you are getting too empty in your spiritual life? Let’s commit to making sure we are more aware of where we are so we do not get so depleted that our actions and attitudes start reflecting it. Let’s stay spiritually proactive!
Father, please remind us to come to You to be revived
Your mercies are new each morning, Lord
O God, if we are drained of You
Our lives will and cannot function as intended
We struggle to be effective for You
Please let us recognize the signs that we are running low
We ask for awareness and that we won’t procrastinate in seeking restoration
Merciful King, please fill us
That we may be all we can for You
In the Name of Jesus
“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”
“It Is Well With My Soul”
“You Raise Me Up”
