Like a car, our spirit can get low on fuel. A car will shut off when it has ran out of gas. We can shut down when our spirit has ran out of gas. We as believers can spend time in the word of God, pray, worship, and praise God to refuel.
Read the word of God.
Proverbs 4:20-22: 20 My son, give attention to my words;Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes;Keep them in the midst of your heart;22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
Psalm 19:7:The law of the LORD is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul; The statutes of the LORD are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple.
Pray about your situation.
In Daniel 6, Daniel prayed three times a day to receive supernatural strength and power from God during the kings unjust laws. God kept him while he was in the lion’s den. God sent angels who came and shut the loin’s mouths.
Praise and worship uplifts our spirit.
Psalm 16:11: You will show me the path of life;In Your presence is fullness of joy;
In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.
Personal testimony: I enjoy encouraging and uplifting people. However, I became spiritually low from pouring into others, working, and everyday life. As I was sitting at work, I decided to take off a day, and the day turned into a week. I filled up on the word of God by reading and listening to anointed people. I went back to work refreshed.
Jesus often got away to refuel. We should follow His example. Life can burn us out with work, family issues, and every day responsibilities, including unexpected obstacles. Spending time with God in worship/praise, in the word and prayer, refuels your spirit .
Refuel and find the jewel.
Prayer: God, in your presence is fullness of joy. I maintain my joy through praise, worship and reading your word. Your word is a precious jewel. Your word is spirit and brings life to my spirit. Your word is a firm foundation for me when the challenges of life surrounds me. Your word surrounds me and I will not sink. In Jesus name! Amen!
