Sometimes I feel spiritually dry and wiped out. God is always there, ready to restore me when I come to Him. His Word has the power to restore me in ways that I find supernatural.
His Word is... For
the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged
sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both
joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the
heart..Hebrews 4:12 (NASB)
I come to His living Word and receive LIFE! It always amazes me how His Word breathes new life into me when the stresses and strains of every day living drain all my energy and joy.
I think part of it is that His
Word puts my eyes on Him. He is the Giver of all Life! I guess it

He is the giver of hope and all good things. He came that we could have life abundant, but that life is only available as we dwell in Him and seek to glorify the Living and Holy God. (John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.) The enemy of our souls seeks to destroy us, but God wants us to have an abundant life. He is the only source of the fulfillment that we seek. He can fill you up!
Are you thirsty? Are your bones dry? Mine get that way!
Come with me and drink His living water !
There is a dying world out there that needs the hope we have to offer. Most of the time I am not sure how to reach that dying world. But I want to...Do you feel that way? Let's ask God to show us how to reach the lost and empower us to minister to them. He is faithful!
These verses are pulled from today's "Walking With Women Through the Word" by Wendy Pope(http://wendypope.org/.) Wendy always pulls encouraging thoughts from the passages for the day.
“I will put my breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.”
“ We have become old, dry bones-all hope is gone.” Ezekiel 37 :11
“’I will put breath into you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’” Ezekiel 37: 6
“O, my people, I will open your graves of exile and cause you to rise again.” Ezekiel 37:12
He destroys our enemies for His Name’s sake, so they will know He is LORD. He is the Defender of His Name.
“The LORD is good, a strong refuge when trouble comes. He is close to those who trust Him.”
