Refreshment

sunrise
Have you ever been thirsty? I mean really thirsty, dry and longing for a drink?
Have you ever felt worn out? Are you tired and spent from the daily pressures of life?
God has better things in store for us. He wants so much more for us than just a knowledge of him. Our creator longs for us to really know him, intimately, and he desperately wants us to know that times of refreshing are available to us. This refreshment, or rest, comes through knowing God’s spirit, and through allowing the spirit to wash over us. We are so often like parched earth in a desert, hard and resistant to the one thing that can bring life.
But God has something better. He has real life, true life and true rest. To receive that rest we must simply come to him and ask. His presence is the only thing that can bring true and lasting refreshment. Everything else will leave us wanting, longing for more. They might satisfy for a while, but in the quite times you might hear your heart asking for more. God is in that, he is the more you’ve been longing for.
Times of refreshing from come God. (See Acts 3:19 in the Bible.)
