Safeguard My Heart
Don’t forget to replenish...
The formula for adequate hydration is to take your body weight in pounds and divide that number by 2 to determine the number of ounces of water you should consume at the minimum each day. But what are you doing to ensure you consume adequate spiritual hydration? Just like when we are outdoors in the heat, we need even more water—so it is for our soul as well.
With so much going on in our world right now, it seems a bit like we’ve stepped right into a sci-fi horror movie! People are glued to the news probably more than ever as changes come by the moment. All that news and media, television and social media viewing can become quite toxic.
We hydrate and cleanse our bodies-inside and out. We must not forget to do the same for our spirit. Spend time meditating on scriptures. Be still before God and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you. Calm your soul with worship and adoration of the One in charge of everything. You won’t be denied. He is faithful and will show up. Persevere to keep up with what He has to say more than anything happening in this day and age.
Don’t be consumed by anything except the One who has the Power and Authority to consume everything that should rise against you.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.2 Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.3 They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them.4 Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.In the heavens God has pitched a tent(H) for the sun.5 It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.6 It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other; nothing is deprived of its warmth.7 The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul.The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.8 The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.9 The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever.The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous.10 They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold;they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb.11 By them your servant is warned; in keeping them there is great reward.12 But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults.13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me.Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression.14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.
