He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. (Psalm 23:3)
Thought for today – God is fixing the broken pieces of your life. Get ready for restoration. God is preparing you for everything you prayed for.
As I sit here thinking about how great God is in our lives, I cannot help but wonder why we will not just be still, get out of God’s way and allow Him to restore our souls. Now, let’s think about that for a moment. We read God’s Word, pray, meditate, and attend church services week after week, right? So, why do we forget to let God order our daily steps and thoughts? We have to remember that we cannot restore ourselves, but we must be restored by God.
3 Spiritual Principles for Restoring Your Soul
• Rest – Enjoy a time of relaxation in God’s presence. Examples: Read God’s Word, pray and meditate
• Reflection – As we look back over our lives, we should feel protected, safe and secure under the leadership of God.
• Replenishment – Now that we are living a renewed life for God, we cannot help but anticipate being with God forever in the future.
You will never change your life, until you change something you do daily. – Unknown
Remember, it’s important not to forget where God has taken us from but knowing that God still has plans for our lives. To be totally restored takes time as well as our precious minds focused on God and His greatness. Then, and only then will God renew us with hope and joy leaving us with much needed anticipation for eternity.
