A time of refreshment...

"I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.” - Jeremiah 31:25 

In Jeremiah's life, he had many ups and downs; not unusual for a prophet of God is it?  Wait, that's not unusual for anyone.  We all have our ups and downs.  Just like Jeremiah, we have times when we are overwhelmed with life.  However, there are times when we are overwhelmed with the greatness of God as well...if we are honest.

This passage comes at a time when Jeremiah is about to give Judah reassurance that God is going to follow through on His promise.  Jeremiah is informed of God's plans and then he awakes from his dream refreshed and ready to deliver the news.  Jeremiah still has work to do, trials in front of him, but God has refreshed him to be able to go forth and complete the tasks.

God still does that for us.  Sometimes, we need to take as step away in an organized manner like some of our ladies did last weekend. They joined ladies from Northlake Baptist Church and simply took time to fellowship with each other and with God.  One of the things I was told by my mother, who went with them, was that she was "refreshed and ready to go."  

While it is nice to go on an organized retreat, not all of us can or want to do this.  I would say two things to this.  First, try it any way.  Second, go on a mini-retreat.  Retreat and refresh with God weekly....daily, if need be.  Reset yourself so that you do lose where you are headed.  Make sure that your direction is true and that you will have the energy to complete the task that God has planned for you.  We all need a time of refreshment!

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
