Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, — Acts 3:19
Are you in need of refreshment? Here is the solution. The burdens we carry everyday causing us frustration, fatigue, discouragement . . . and the list goes on, making life a drudgery with no hope or lack there of. We can get so caught up in life that we don’t turn to God for refreshment. We continue to carry the sins of our life from one day to another without spending time with Jesus confessing and turning from those sins back to God. The only one who can wipe away our sins? Jesus. Spend time in His presence and receive a time of refreshment.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9
We have no need to tremble or be dismayed. But in life we do experience times of trembling and are discouraged. Why? Could it be that we have not heeded the commandment of God? Could it be we are not clinging to the promise of God? Could it be that we lack confidence in God because we aren’t spending quality time with Him?
The closer our walk with Jesus the more confidence is displayed in our character. The greater the confidence the stronger and more courageous or brave we are. The more confidence in God and His Word brings about the boldness to tell others the Good News. It gives us the courage to face difficult situations, surmounting circumstances in our lives. Why? Because the Lord is with us wherever we go.
What a comfort in the Words of God telling us that He is with us wherever we go. When we walk closely with the Lord we can not only count on this promise but have peace knowing that His promise is true. Know Him today. Seek Him continually. He is our strength and our courage.
