Thoughts on Today's Verse...

In Jeremiah's overwhelming, hair-raising, and depressing prophecies, God repeatedly told his people he would destroy their things and places because of their obstinate, ever-rebellious, and hardened hearts. Yet, in the middle of these powerful and scorching warnings, God slips in messages that soar with hope, restoration, and grace beyond the destruction. Can you think of anything more reassuring than God's promise to "refresh the weary and satisfy the faint"? That's all Israel had for seventy years — God's promise amid total destruction. But when the time came, God made good on his promises and prophecies. I believe he will do the same with us today!

My Prayer...

Great Shepherd, I am tired and weary. Please refresh my Spirit and renew the strength of my body. Please help me find satisfaction in the abundance you have already so graciously and lavishly shared with me. To you belongs all glory, honor, strength, and power. I joyously submit myself in faith, waiting for the rest and satisfaction you have promised. In Jesus' name, I pray and praise you. Amen.
