The instructions of the LORD are perfect

“The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul.—Psalm 19:7 

 

The daily grind of life has a way of taking a lot out of us. Dealing with everyday life issues can be a challenge. From time to time we need to take time to be revived and refreshed. 

 

Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light” (Matthew 11:28–30 NLT).

 

Could you use some spiritual refreshment? The place to find it is God Himself. The psalmist David wrote, “The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul” (Psalm 19:7 NLT). We will find spiritual refreshment when we read and study the Bible.

 

We don’t always have an emotional experience when we open God’s Word and read it. But this isn’t about emotions. It’s about replenishment, restoration, and gaining perspective on life. It’s about getting direction from the Lord. And as you open the Bible, the Word of God, it will refresh your soul.

 

You also will be spiritually refreshed when you think of others more than yourself. This may seem counterintuitive in today’s selfie culture. But when we stop thinking about ourselves so much and instead think about others, it will refresh us. As we give to others, we’ll find that we’re spiritually replenished (see Proverbs 11:25).

 

Do you need a spiritual reboot? Spend time in God’s presence. Study the Word of God. Put the needs of others above your own and you will find the spiritual refreshment you desire.
