Are you tired & Weary? Feeling Distant from God?
Sometimes through the everyday mundane tasks of life we can lose the joy of our salvation! Where we used to be in fire for God, we suddenly discover that they’ve grown a bit cold and weary and the joy that used to fuel our hearts has vanished!
Every so often I like to mediate and remember the moment Our Heavenly Father reached down out of heaven and pulled me out of the pit I dug for myself. The moment I seen Him for the first time and he made me a new creation! He and utterly completely changed my life and set me free from my fears and addictions and gave me a new heart! It was the greatest moment of my life! Sometimes I forget just how miraculous the transition was and it’s then that my heart grows distant and weary.
So my word to you all today is if you feel your heart growing a little cold, I want you to take a few moments to think about what your life was like before you met Jesus, and then mull over that moment when He set you free!
God is quite the expert at creating new hearts, so why don’t you use the prayer of the psalmist and ask God too ‘Create in me a new heart and restore a steadfast spirit within me’ and praise Him for the gift of your salvation and as you begin cultivating an attitude of gratitude and your heart will go on fire again <3
Psalm 107:1-9 MSG
Oh, thank God —he’s so good! His love never runs out. All of you set free by God , tell the world! Tell how he freed you from oppression, Then rounded you up from all over the place, from the four winds, from the seven seas. Some of you wandered for years in the desert, looking but not finding a good place to live, Half-starved and parched with thirst, staggering and stumbling, on the brink of exhaustion. Then, in your desperate condition, you called out to God . He got you out in the nick of time; He put your feet on a wonderful road that took you straight to a good place to live. So thank God for his marvelous love, for his miracle mercy to the children he loves. He poured great draughts of water down parched throats; the starved and hungry got plenty to eat.
