Ezekiel 36:26 HCSB I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you.
Even the most inspired people of God can, from time to time, find themselves running on empty. The demands of daily life can drain us of our strength and rob us of the joy that is rightfully ours in Christ. When we find ourselves tired, discouraged, or worse, there is a source from which we can draw the power needed to recharge our spiritual lives in Christ. That source is God.
God intends that His children lead joyous lives filled with abundance and peace. But sometimes, abundance and peace seem very far away. It is then that we must turn to God for renewal, and when we do, the Lord will restore us. Do you have a need for renewal from the Lord?
Are you tired or troubled? Turn your heart toward God in prayer. Are you weak or worried? Take the time, or even more accurately, make the time, to delve deeply into God’s Holy Word. Are you spiritually depleted? Call upon fellow believers to support you, and call upon Christ to renew your spirit and your life.
Prayer: Lord, You are our rock and our strength. When we grow weary, let us turn our thoughts and our prayers to You. When we are discouraged, restore our faith in You. Let we Your people always trust in Your promises, Lord, and let us draw strength from those promises and from Your unending love for we your children. In Jesus name, Amen.
