Times of Refreshing

I came across a testimony I had written back in October of 2020. It was a sweet reminder of what an awesome God we have.

Sometimes we get so caught up in the day to day, the “old grind”, as some have called it, that we forget to notice God. We look inward at all the things going wrong around us and in us. We begin to become self-focused and then comes the “pity party”.

What are we to do then, face to face with our sin of self-focus? When our dependence and focus is on ourselves, we need to confess before God, ask forgiveness, and also ask God to help stop this pity party. Then, listen, accept the forgiveness and wait.

I have found that when I mess up big time and confess, God blesses.

I acknowledged my sin to You, And my iniquity I did not hide; I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”; And You forgave the guilt of my sin. Selah.
Psalms 32:5 NASB

How blessed is the man to whom the Lord does not impute iniquity, And in whose spirit there is no deceit!
Psalms 32:2 NASB

🌹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;
Acts 3:19 NASB

Road to Triumph Pt. 2

While they were listening to these things, Jesus went on to tell a parable, because He was near Jerusalem, and they supposed that the kingdom of God was going to appear immediately. So He said, “A nobleman went to a distant country to receive a kingdom for himself, and then return. And he called ten of his slaves, and gave them ten minas and said to them, ‘Do business with this until I come back.’ But his citizens hated him and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We do not want this man to reign over us.’
But these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slay them in my presence.’ ”
Luke 19:11‭-‬14‭, ‬27 NASB

Does King Jesus have reign over you, your life? One day He will return. Will He find you obediently serving His will and purpose?
When I ask myself these questions, I am drawn to the cross. What my King Jesus Christ did for me on the cross humbles me to bow before my reigning King.

🌹Reign in me, Lord Jesus. Help me to serve You faithfully until Your return.

To whom shall I speak and give warning That they may hear? Behold, their ears are closed And they cannot listen. Behold, the word of the Lord has become a reproach to them; They have no delight in it. Thus says the Lord, “Stand by the ways and see and ask for the ancient paths, Where the good way is, and walk in it; And you will find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Hear, O earth: behold, I am bringing disaster on this people, The fruit of their plans, Because they have not listened to My words, And as for My law, they have rejected it also.
Jeremiah 6:10‭, ‬16‭, ‬19 NASB

🌹The Book of Jeremiah is playing out right before our eyes today. Action needed: Prayer. Proclaim the gospel. Return. Repent. Reconcile. Revival. Rejoice.

A voice is heard on the bare heights, The weeping and the supplications of the sons of Israel; Because they have perverted their way, They have forgotten the Lord their God. 
Jeremiah 3:21‭ NASB

Look around you. What do you see? Fear? Brokenness? Anger? Discontentment? Turmoil? Lostness? Do you wonder why?
“We have forgotten the Lord our God”!

Peace, wholeness, contentment, direction come through Christ alone even in the midst of turmoil. So the Lord says . . .

“Return, O faithless sons, I will heal your faithlessness.” “Behold, we come to You; For You are the Lord our God.
Jeremiah 3:22 NASB

🌹 Lord, we come to You; for You are the Lord our God.
