“He shall drink of the brook by the wayside; Therefore He shall lift up the head (he shall be refreshed).” Psalm 110:7 (explanation mine)
When I am thirsty, there is nothing more like a cool refreshing drink of water. As I drink I feel a refreshing, a coolness throughout my body. As I finish my drink of water, my body feels revived and ready to go back at it again.
This is exactly how I feel when I spend time with the Lord. No matter how tough my day may have been or even if I had not even started out my day, I always walk away revived and refresh. The reason for this is because anyone who spends time in God’s presence can not help but feel strength and encouragement.
This morning, God wants to revive and refresh you will you allow Him to do so?
Been recently saved? You might be asking yourself, what is in store for me next where do I go from here. This blog is written to help you as begin your new life in Christ.
First one must follow the Lord in Baptism. Why is Baptism important? Baptism is a picture of what Christ has done to you on the inside. By going under the water you picture being dead to sin and rising up out of the water you picture walking in newness of life. Baptism not only displays a picture of what Christ has done but also testifies that you have given your life over to Him completely.
Second get involved in Sunday School and church. Sunday School and church is important for it helps teach you God’s Word and you are able to build relationships with other believers. Also as one begins to faithfully attend, he/she will soon realize that he/she is not alone and others are going through similar problems.
Third make time for God in prayer and Bible reading everyday. Fellowship with God is very important if one is to maintain living a life that is pleasing to God. Through Bible reading God reveals to you the things that you need to know that will help you grow in your faith and through prayer one is able to ask God for help to apply those things in one’s life
Fourth find a season mentor. In growing in one’s faith, everybody needs somebody that they can trust and go too. These mentors are people who have been following the Lord for a long time and are able to help, guide and direct one who is starting out. These mentors can be found in church, in Sunday School or even can be led to you by God.
And fifth–never give up and never quit. Living a life for God is not easy and it will be tough at times because their might be changes that one must have to make. But know this, that though living a life for God is tough it is also rewarding. He is always there and will never leave you. You have a friend that will never betray or leave you, that friend is the one who saved you—Jesus Christ.
