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.
[ The Thirsting Soul Satisfied in God. ] [ A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah. ] O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. — Psalm 63:1
Have you been there? In a dry and weary land? I know I have. Unexplained weariness, trouble focusing, no motivation. The day, week, month just seem dry. No real explanation. The presence of God seems distant although you know better than that.
Why do you know better? Because you believe in the Word of God that tells you so. Refreshment comes when you remind yourself that “God, You are my God”. Then surrender to the thirst of the soul and yearning of the flesh to be restored to fellowship with the Almighty God. Seek Him earnestly and He will be found and you will be satisfied.
