Scripture of the Day - January 4, 2012

Isaiah 41:1...let the people renew their strength: let them come near...

We need to eat food and drink water every day to renew our physical strength. Our bodies would fade and die if we didn't continue to nourish them. We also need to rest every night to let the body recharge for the next day. Have you ever gone without sleep? It's very difficult to function properly if you've been deprived of sleep. In fact, sleep deprivation is a form of torture. Have you ever gone without food and water for any length of time? The body becomes weak and you feel sluggish.
We experience the same in the spiritual as we do in the physical. We have to renew ourselves spiritually every day or we become sluggish and our thinking becomes clouded. We have to draw from God to keep our spirit functioning properly. Our spiritual strength is from the Lord. We have to realize that and draw near to Him. We also need rest in our spirit so we cast our burdens on Jesus for He is our rest.
We can take a cue from our physical self to understand the same needs in our spiritual self and do something about it.
