Rabbi Schneider - Restoration
Shalom beloved. I'm continuing from where I left off last week in Psalm 23 verses 1 through 3. Last week I was focusing on how the Lord restores our soul. I don't know about you, but there's been times in my life that I've felt so exhausted. I mean spiritually exhausted. It's beyond physical. It's just spiritually exhausted, that I just come to a place like I'm in right now. I go into nature and I just lay on the ground and I just say, "Lord I could lay here forever". And I just pray as I'm laying on the ground. I'm just saying, "Father God, Hashem, restore my soul. Father you know how exhausted I feel in my spirit. Sleep, natural sleep isn't even enough. I need You to restore my soul. So Hashem, Father God, as I lay here on the ground in Your beautiful creation, I ask You just to impart Your Spirit to me, impart Your presence to me. Lord, restore my soul".
I want to encourage you, beloved one, maybe you're in a place in your life today, you're feeling tired. Perhaps some of you feel like I do at times, exhausted. It's not even just a physical exhaustion. It's a spiritual and emotional exhaustion. I want to encourage you today. The Lord can restore your soul. If you can find a place to be outside to just sit alone with God, just be in silence. Pray to Him from your heart. I want you to know He is near to all that call upon Him. And as you spend time with Him, beloved one, He will restore your soul. It may not happen all at once. It's not just like this all the time, but He is faithful beloved one, as you reach out to Him to draw near to you and to restore you. This is Rabbi Schneider saying I love you. Most importantly Father loves you. I look forward to seeing you next week through this mini devotional. Pass this on to a friend.
