Look Up! | Psalm 68:7-14
Todayís Passage: Psalm 68:7-14
Key Verses: Psalm 68:9-10
You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance. Your people settled in it, and from your bounty, God, you provided for the poor.
Todayís devotional is for those who are weary. Work is weighing you down. Worry is draining your energy. Dread for tomorrow has depleted you for today. A relationship is sucking the life out of you. Itís time for some refreshment.
Look up! God's unique refreshment pours out like revitalizing rain showers. Let it rinse over your mind, dulling the dread. Let it stream over your soul, washing away the worry. Let it drench your body, reviving your energy. God is not short on blessings. He will provide for those who are poor in spirit.
Think this is fanciful thinking? Hallmark card encouragement? Think again. When you look up you are looking away from your circumstances and focusing on Godís power to meet your needs. Look up for refreshing encouragement from the heavenly Father, who loves you so much he sent his Son to die for you on the cross. As Paul says, If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31).
Father, I am tired. I am physically worn down. I am tired. Worry is sapping my energy. I am tired. Dread is draining my spirit, so I look up. Send showers of refreshment. I look up . . . and depend on you. In Jesusí name. Amen.
