Today, has been a blessing. GOD know what we need and when we need it! I got a chance to lay in my bed and watch television. I could not remember the last time I was able to bathe in such leisure. I watched a little television and I could feel myself drifting off to sleep. My goodness I could hear myself snore.
I was awaken by the sound of the phone ringing. It was my Mom calling to see how I was doing today. It always amazes me that my Mom had eleven children and she always know when we don’t sound like our usual self. Upon hearing my voice, she ask what is the matter? My answer was I’m fine. She responded by reminding me that she knew I was not fine, but she would not pry. If you need me, you know where I am was her remark before reminding me of our celebration gathering with my Dad and my siblings. It was so good to hear her voice. I missed out on her birthday get together due to the weather. I wanted to be there, but the fear of driving in heavy rain and fog was giving me anxiety. Later that evening I called Mom to let her know I would be a little late, but to my surprise Mom ask me to keep put because the weather was bad. Please do not come out in this terrible weather was her request. I was relieved for a moment, but I wanted to be there. I was obedient and did as my Mom requested but I always send myself through so much turmoil mentally because I don’t like to disappoint others, especially when it is family. I curled up in my bed feeling disappointed, tired and exhausted. Before I knew it, I was fast asleep.
I woke up the next morning feeling rested and ready to start the day. My husband and I were having renovations done on our home and we were expecting the crew to be at the house at 8:30 in the morning. The crew was on time and ready to begin. I fixed myself some coffee and just sat in front of my computer reading my emails. There was a podcast I begun to listen to called “My Daily Cup of Inspiration”. The speaker was assuring her listeners that God has sent out a word of deliverance over our life and what He says will manifest. She said listen and be encouraged to know that your shift is surely coming. I couldn’t help but get excited because I knew what I had prayed for and I was ready for a shift to occur in my life.
God has bless me so much, but sometimes in life we need a fresh anointing. Our spirit man need reviving. Today, my truth is I am spiritually tired and I need for God to give me a fresh anointing. I am in need of a touch from God. I need more of God. Lately, I have thirsted for more of GOD. I could hear God reminding me that when I seek Him with my whole heart, I will find Him. There was a time when I chased after God. But suddenly God was the last thing I was chasing. Have you ever found yourself spiritually dry. The light inside of my temple was flickering, when I needed it to shine brightly once again. I felt like someone had stolen my joy.
Then I started to hear the word “revive” in my spirit. I began to pray for God to revive me again. I couldn’t think of the last time I ask God to revive me. Upon studying on revival, the Greek definition for revive was to flourish anew. The dictionary’s definition of revive was to return to life, consciousness, vigor, strength, or a flourishing condition. I kept looking at the words vigor, strength and flourish. It was the medicine I needed. It maybe the medicine you need also. Speak to God in truth and let Him know your heart cry. I was giving God an ear full and it felt good to release the burden.
Then I thought, how do I receive vigor, strength and flourish all at the same time? I had no idea where to begin other than praying for it. So here I am Father God needing you to “revive me again”. In my prayer I told GOD that the colors in my life were starting to look dull. I needed a fresh outlook. I needed a fresh anointing from GOD that would bring back my passion for the things of GOD. I had lost my joy. When you have lost your joy, check your relationship with the Father. My passion for the things I love doing was diminishing. God was no longer first in my life. Everyone else and what they needed from me became first. I had struggled with this for two years. I needed to get back to my first love! There, I have finally said it! God I have let so many things take priority over my life. When I stepped aside, you graciously decided to let me do what I felt was best for me. So GOD you stepped aside. I let so many things come before you! God being the gentleman He is, He let me go my way until I reached the point of saying, I am drain! I have no more to give. I felt depleted of all my energy. I was not walking in GOD’s will.
Revive Me again was my call for help! As I looked in the mirror, the hair on my head was turning grey and my steps were no longer swift but my heart thirst for GOD. I felt like I had lost God’s purpose for my life. It is so easy to become distracted. I am a praying wife, mother and grandmother. I know GOD’s Word, and I also knew that peace followed obedience. I could hear the Holy Spirit saying, “return unto me”.
GOD is not hiding from us. He is waiting for us to chase after Him with our whole heart. He yearns to hear our voice cry out to Him. Well, today I am crying out to GOD Almighty who is able to give me exceedingly and abundantly above all that I could ever ask or think according to the power that worked within me.
Be honest with GOD and tell Him your truth. Let GOD show you how much He love you. Let GOD rescue you!
Truth seekers, GOD has restored the joy of His salvation unto me and He desires to do the same for you! Let your prayer be “Revive Me Again Oh Lord”.
