Taking Time to Recharge
Scripture Reading: Psalm 5:1-8
Key Verse: Psalm 5:3
In the morning, O Lord, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, the Psalmist David reminds us to take time to chat with the Lord each morning. David said that each morning he got before the Lord and presented his requests. It was during this time that God was renewing David’s strength. David also understood that in this life on earth God’s people must practice waiting on the Lord. God’s timing was and is always perfect and David waited for God. It wasn’t an impatient waiting; it was an expectant waiting. David believed God would move in his behalf at the perfect moment.
Do you need your spiritual battery recharged? If so, it will take time on your part to allow God to do His divine work in you. Our illustration of jumpstarting a car’s battery reminds us to turn off all the drains on the battery; put the car in park and allow the battery time to recharge. So it is with anyone wanting to recharge their spiritual life. We must turn off all the things that drain us; turn the noise off around us. When we get quiet before the Lord, we are giving God time to refresh our spirit.
The Psalmist David spoke of mornings with the Lord. Maybe you are not a morning person. If not, make sure you and God get together during your best time. Present your requests to God and wait expectantly!
Father, thank you for your presence that meets with me when I slow down and give you my time. Refresh my soul in you! In Jesus’ name, amen.
