“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”
Matthew 5:6, NIV
Sometimes, it’s easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the people around us. You may find that you’re always giving, taking care of the children, working overtime at the office, or helping that friend who is struggling. And that’s all good. But if you’re not careful, you can end up feeling rundown. That’s why you have to take time every day to get filled back up. Your first priority should be taking care of yourself and making time to get into the presence of Jesus. Scripture tells us that in God’s presence, there is fullness of joy, fullness of peace and fullness of victory. In His presence, you’re refreshed and restored.
Today, take time to get alone with God even to just simply say, “God, I love You today. Thank You for my life, for my family, for the opportunities You’ve given me. Lord, I know every good thing comes from You.” When you live like that, with your heart connected to His, you’ll be refreshed, restored and filled up for the journey of life!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to set me free. Draw me to You. Keep me close to You always and fill me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
