Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When did you last catch yourself straying from a passionate walk with the Lord? Refreshing times come when we change our hearts and lives to turn our hearts toward Jesus and live for God in our daily lives! This is real repentance. When we repent and live for him, Jesus promised to reveal himself to us and make his home in us (John 14:15-21, 23-24). When we turn our hearts and lives around in repentance to live for him, we enjoy forgiveness and immediate refreshment now as we look forward to going home to be with him and enjoy our ultimate refreshment with him forever.

My Prayer...

Abba Father, I am consciously turning my life over to you today. I renounce the sin in my life and yearn to live for you. I ask for your forgiveness for any sin that I have committed. I trust you will refresh my spirit through a deeper awareness of Jesus' lordship and presence in my life today. I pray this, trusting in your promised refreshment and presence. Amen.
