"Even when the rainbow seems to pass right by me....I'm still finding Gold in the clouds....."

Stay Refreshed!

This week I have been reading various Scripture passages about the Sovereignty of God.  This morning I was in Deuteronomy 31:30-32:4.  Here are the verses that jumped out at me:

"I proclaim the name of the Lord.  Ascribe greatness to our God.  He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice, righteous and upright is He." ~Deuteronomy 32:3&4~ 
The devotional (from Women  of Faith Devotional Bible, NKJV) then went on to say that this is from the song that Moses sang.....He led them in music!  He was also their leader in other ways of course, but to help remind them of God's faithfulness and power, he set those truths to music.

Moses is reminding the people of Israel...and reminding us today...that if we give God first place in our lives....if we allow  the Word of God to take precedence in our day, then we will be refreshed.  Just like a glass of ice cold water refreshes us on a hot day or when we are particularly thirsty, so too will the Word of God refresh us.

Let's not forget what God has done for us!

Let's remember His faithfulness to us....His mercy....His grace...and His power!

Let's drink of the Living Water that He freely offers us!!

And stay refreshed!

This is a good word, Faith. And it is up to us to stay in the word so that we can keep refreshed. I don't know about you, but it is easy for me to get wrapped up in all I got going and forget to stop and take "water breaks." I'm working on getting into the word the first thing each day.
