Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by making sure your heart is in the right place.

Proverbs 4:23

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (NIV)

Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. (The Message)

Look after your heart, because through that God is with you.

So I’ll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all
I’ll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

In a world where God really needs us to stand up for Him, so that good will overcome evil, we have to take on the world.

So will you stand for Christ today?

Sometimes all we need are some words of encouragement, so here’s some encouraging words from J. I. Packer:

The stars may fall, but God’s promises will stand and be fulfilled.

It’s true isn’t, that no matter what may happen in life, God remains the same, forever faithful.

What better encouragement could we have!

You are awesome.

You are amazing.

You don’t even realise or appreciate how wonderful you are.

Years have gone by with you thinking you are worthless, inadequate, unwanted and maybe even not wanted.

You can change how you feel about yourself by believing in yourself and believing that you are the person God made you to be.

You are awesome.

You are amazing.

You are you and you were made specially by God.

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before your they run our completely!

As God’s co-workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For he says,

“In the time of my favor I heard you,
    and in the day of salvation I helped you.”

I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

~ 2 Corinthians 6:1-2 (NIV)

It’s time to remember that God is working in you and through you. Because of that you can feel a renewed enthusiasm in your spiritual life.

For the Christian, heaven is where Jesus is. We do not need to speculate on what heaven will be like. It is enough to know that we will be for ever with Him ~ William Barclay

I guess we’ve all thought about what heaven is like, at some time in our lives. But as this quote states, does it really matter what heaven is like?

When it comes down to it, if we believe in Christ, and live our lives for Him, we have been promised that we will live forever with Him in heaven.

God will not be absent when His people are on trial; he will stand in court as their advocate, to plead on their behalf.  – Charles Spurgeon

Isn’t it reassuring to know that no matter what we face in life, God will stand up for us, and support and guide us.

So trust God, because He will always be there for you.

When you’re not sure what t do, or are looking for direction in your life, who do you turn to?

We can find the answer to that question in the book of James (1:5)

If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it.

God is understanding and receptive to your prayers. So believe in Him, have faith that He can and will give you the guidance and help you need.

When you find you face problems in life, do you wonder, “Why me?”. But have you ever stopped and wondered, “Am I actually the root of my problems?”.

I’m sure even if you have thought that, you will have realised not everything can be your fault! Sometimes our problems can start when our heart is not right. i.e. If we say we’ve given our heart to God, but in reality we’ve just given him a part of ourselves.

The heart of the problem is a problem with the heart. ~ Dr Henry Brandt

When we give our heart, our all, to God, God will strengthen and support us always. So don’t let your heart be the problem, give it to God today.
