Judges 15:18-19 And he was very thirsty, and he called upon the Lord and said, “You have granted this great salvation by the hand of your servant, and shall I now die of thirst and fall into the hands of the uncircumcised?” And God split open the hollow place that is a Lehi, and water came out from it. And when he drank, his spirit returned and he revived.
What would it take to revive you today? Have you been depressed, or frustrated, confused, or just simply at the end of your rope? Maybe today finds you in a place where you just can’t take any more. Don’t forget this one thing; God is still capable of doing anything! There is nothing too difficult for Him!
Pour your heart out to God and ask Him and expect Him to give you what you need to revive you today! Maybe you don’t even know what it is that it will take to give you back your hope and faith today, but He does! Pray and ask Him to do whatever it takes to give you back your strength and to revive your hope. It is never God’s desire to see you downhearted and frustrated, it is pretty difficult to serve Him if you are in the “depths of despair! No matter what is going on God is still at work.
Psalm 42:11, “Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in God; for I shall again praise him, my salvation and my God.” It is time to focus on the God of All and give all of those frustrations to Him once again today, I know, I know, you probably have been and what difference will today make? It could make all the difference in the world and besides….. what else are you going to do with it? Let’s turn those negative words around and remind ourselves of all that God is able to do if we will just trust in Him and believe. Matthew 13:58 says, “And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.” It is easy to get to a point where we lose faith because we have prayed and prayed and struggled until we have nothing left, but that is when we need to pull ourselves up again and ask Him for His strength and His faith, and His Hope and Joy to get us through. Give Him glory just like the Psalmist did in 42:11 and believe that He will bring you through! Don’t allow your circumstances to get you to the point that everything you think and say is negative, negativity does not give God any glory and no, it doesn’t make you more spiritual either.
Let’s praise God today because He is a mighty God, a God who can deliver you, the God who hears your prayers, and rejoice in knowing that absolutely nothing is impossible for Him! Don’t give up! Hold on to Him and trust that He knows what is best and He will get you through to the other side if you will just follow Him! Ask Him for the strength and wisdom you need for today. Seek Him with your whole heart and understand that He loves you more than you can comprehend and truly His best is yet to come!
