Refreshment for Our Souls

By Greg Laurie






"Then Jesus said, ‘Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.’"

—Matthew 11:28


I love the word “refresh” It’s such a perfect word to speak of starting again or returning to something. In fact, we even use this word when it comes to our computers; if things freeze up, we need to refresh our computer screens. And sometimes it means that we need to completely reboot.


In the Christian life, sometimes we need a reboot. Sometimes we need a refresher since we find ourselves tired and exhausted. But here’s what Jesus said: “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 nlt).


On the day of Pentecost, Peter said to the people gathered in Jerusalem, “’Now repent of your sins and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped away’” (Acts 3:19 NLT).


The Bible is very specific about how we can find spiritual refreshment for our souls — you will find it when you read and study the Bible. Psalm 19:7 says, “The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul” (NLT).


I know it’s not always an emotional experience when we open up the Bible and read it. But this isn’t about emotions; it’s about replenishment, restoration, and getting perspective on life, as well as direction from the Lord.


So, expect your soul to be refreshed as you open the Word of God. Have you ever had a verse that seemed to jump off the page? Maybe it was a verse you had read before, but suddenly it had new meaning and applied to your particular situation. That is what it means to find refreshment from the Word of God.


Could you use some spiritual refreshment right now? The place to find it is from God Himself.

I needed to hear this today. Its been sooo very difficult for a long time honestly asked God if I was the toxic one and just didn't realize it so I could repent

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
