DEVOTIONAL: God’s Free Refills

Psalm 23:3 He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.

Jeramiah 31:25
For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.

Isaiah 40:28-31
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!

PRAYER
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
Revive us
That we may be all we can for You
In the Name of Jesus
Amen

Songs
“Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah”

“It Is Well With My Soul”

“You Raise Me Up”

“On Eagle’s Wings”

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
