Things in this natural life can become monotonous (dull, tedious, repetitious, lacking variety and interest). During this current time, when things are repetitive with certain places being closed and traveling is limited, it is easy to get comfortable in that space. It applies to every situation in life. God made variety for a reason in animals, people, different cultures, and everything in creation. What can we do to keep things in our lives from becoming dull? It starts with our spirit, man. Without the spirit living in us, our body is lifeless.
As believers, we do not serve a dull God!
Lamentations 3:21-24: But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,’ says my soul, ‘therefore I will hope in him.'”
Glory to God! His mercies are new every morning. You feel renewed and refreshed when you spend time with God in the morning. God gives you new revelation from chapters and verses in the bible. That is amazing within itself!
Matthew 13:52 52 Then said he unto them, therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.
I have had songs that I have not played in a long time, and it ministered to me. Other times God would put a new song in me.
Being in fellowship with God our Creator keeps our lives from being monotonous. After all, He created us.
Psalm 116:11 You tell me the path of life; in your presence, there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
If you do not have a relationship with God, get to know Him. It is the most exciting journey. You do not have to fill the void with things on this earth that can only give you temporary happiness. God is eternal, and he will provide you with everlasting joy.
To make it through, walk in the new!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for brand new mercies every morning. In your presence is fullness of joy. Thank you, God, for bringing out old and new treasures. Because of your fellowship and spirit living on the inside of me, I can make it through this journey of life. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
