There's a lot that can be said about today's blog title, I hope I will capture the essence of it. Lets start with Renew: Lamentations 3:22-23) NKJV states : Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. Every night while we sleep our body regenerates us by renewing itself. Most of the things that happen while we sleep we have no ideal. All we know is that we generally wake up feeling renewed and refreshed. Even a small power nap as it is call and if available makes you feel so refreshed. By the same token God renews his mercy and grace toward us daily.
Refresh: In the Washington, Metropolitan area we are experiencing temperatures that extended into the 90's for the past few days. The only thing we can do to refresh ourselves is to keep cool, keep hydrated and eat light! By doing this we can help our bodies to maintain a good temperature and stay alert. Cast your care upon him (Psalm 145:9) call upon him now while he may be found. Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help. Whose hope is in the Lord his God, Who make heaven and earth. The sea, and all that is in them; who keeps truth forever, Who executes justice for the oppressed, Who gives food to the hungry. The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. (Psalm 147:5-7) NKJV Only God can give you "living water" that you won't thirst no more be refreshed!
Resolve: Perhaps you are dealing with something that has not been resolved. Maybe you have been trying to resolve it on your own but can't seem to find the right answer, do the right thing or know where to start. Is your all on the Alter? (Romans 12:1-2) A good place to start would be to give it over to Christ who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, (Ephesians 3:20). God can do it! Yes he can!! There is nothing too hard for him. In the next few days take the time to renew, refresh, and resolve yourself. I will be praying for you and yours!
