Refresh Your Soul

June 23, 2010

Matthew 11:28-30 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.] 29Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me, for I am gentle (meek) and humble (lowly) in heart, and you will find rest ( relief and ease and refreshment and recreation and blessed quiet) for your souls. [Jer 6:16.] 20For My yoke is wholesome (useful, good — not harsh, hard, sharp, or pressing, but comfortable, gracious, and pleasant), and My burden is light and easy to be borne.

Psalm 114:7-8 Tremble, O earth, at the presence of the Lord, at the presence of the God of Jacob, 8Who turned the rock into a pool of water, the flint into a fountain of waters.

Come weary, weak, heavy-laden and overburdened
Come trembling
Come, come to the fountain, to the One who sustains life
Drink deeply, water from the Rock
Come
Trust
Drink
Taste
Delight.

Psalm 36:7-9 How priceless is Your unfailing{steadfast} love{mercy}, O God! Both high and low among men find refuge{shelter,cover} in the shadow of Your wings. 8They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house, And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures. 9For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light.

Psalm 62:5-8 Find rest{wait quietly before God}, O my soul, in God alone; my hope{expectation} comes from Him. 6He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. 7In God is my salvation{victory} and my glory{honor}; The rock of my strength, and my refuge, is in God. 8Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us.
Selah

I was weary this morning. The Lord reminded me of this — to come to Him — He alone gives rest/refreshment. And after you drink — delight! Joy bubbles up like an overflowing fountain or waterfall{from the Rock}!

For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
He will lead them to springs of living water. -Rev 7:17

My times are in Your hands … -Ps 31:15

Past Still Waters

Psalm 42:7
Deep calls to deep in the roar of your waterfalls;
All your waves and breakers have swept over me.

Beside still waters
Drink in His peace
Linger there awhile
Restored
Linger there, listen for His call
As deep calls out to deep
Be led farther upstream past the still waters, deeper …

Let the wellspring of joy come forth
From deep within your soul
Let joy bubble up, overflow
In the roar of His waterfalls
From the river of His delights
A fountain of life
Glorious unspeakable joy
Bursts into jubilant song
Taste and see
He is good!

*****

Psalm 98:4,8
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,
Burst into jubilant song with music. …
Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy!

1 Peter 1:8
Though you have not seen Him, you love Him;
And even though you do not see Him now,
You believe in Him and you rejoice
With a glorioius (unspeakable) inexpressible joy.

***

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!”
And let him who hears say, “Come!”
Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes,
Let him take the free gift of the water of life. -Rev 22:17
