Jeremiah 31:25 New King James Version
25 For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.”
God consistently promises to be there for us in every way. He holds nothing back and soaks our soul with a constant infilling of Him. His love is an all encompassing breath of sweetness and it keeps us flowing in His Spirit.
He embraces us with His presence and in this embrace He flushes out the toxins which invade our mind our will and emotions and rejuvenates us with strength, encouragement and peace.
It is a picture of water being poured into our soul and saturating it with abundance.
There are times when we have battled through many a storm and chased away the clouds in prayer and all that is left within us is to surrender. In these moments of heaviness words or actions of a noble heart can still leave us wanting. But God pours Himself into the deep places of our weariness and bathes us in His warmth and healing light to replenish us with more than what has been stolen from us.
God desires us to draw closer to Him and recognize our great need for Him every moment of every day. When He formed us He put inside each one of us a dependence upon Him.
If we do not allow God to fill the areas in our life that sometimes can feel empty through situations, we will position ourselves to accept the emptiness the world has to offer and in so doing we make the empty hole bigger and deeper.
Challenge: Turn to God and ask Him to fill you up and refresh your weary soul and then receive it.
The purpose of this series is to encourage people to live as loving, compassionate, and peacemaking children of God: Jesus tells us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven." (Matthew 6:10) God tells us through Micah (6:8), "He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God." And we know from Revelation 21:4 that there will be no more mourning, or crying, or pain, or death. Thus, Christian living requires us to set the standards of these conditions here on earth for our fellow human beings, and for the other animals, as a witness to the rest of the world. To do otherwise is not Christian.
