Jeremiah 9:7 ESV "Therefore thus says the Lord of hosts: “Behold, I will refine them and test them, for what else can I do, because of my people?"No one likes a dead battery! Today's Word is about testing, being refined and that's a good thing! When we turned the key, nothing happened. The battery on the lawn tractor was dead, so there was no cutting the grass this day. After putting the battery charger on for a few hours, it still was dead and needed to be replaced! In life, we will find times when our battery is dead, and even after being recharged, we still may struggle with coming to life fully. We need to take time to replace the energy lost, the overworked bodies, the exhaustion of running here and there with no rest! Being refined means learning that we need to cut some things our of our life that sap our strength and put in things that will allow our batteries to be charged to full capacity. Spending time with God, His Word and relaxing in the Spirit can and will recharge us for the day! When was the last time we just sat and listened to His Voice? peace, tom
