Do you need a time of refreshing?  We all do.  We can get tired...stagnant if you will.  If we are sincere and ask the Lord for fresh rain to fall from Him onto/into us....He will show us....or take us....where He knows we will receive what we need.  It may be a one time thing or it may be for a season.  Whatever it is for you don't question it or take it lightly.  Just receive.

We all need to grow spiritually.  Not just when we first become a Christian but for the whole time we are walking on this earth.  That is what I have been longing for for some time now.   It's not up to the Lord how much we's up to us.  We grow through reading the Word and talking with the Lord.  Jesus will help you to become all that you need to be if you are diligent in seeking and spending time with Him

Ephesians 3:14-19
14 For this reason []seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].
16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].
17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

  1. That's a great scripture, Chelle.
    I just spoke with a Christian friend this morning, and we were talking about the importance of relationships, and how all relationships in our life are dependant upon our relationship with the Lord....That if He is not the center of our life, then all other relationships will be off balance. We came to the conclusion that it is the indwelling Spirit of God within us, that keeps us centered, and when we are not right with the Lord we will know it by what is happening in all our other relationships...Like spokes of a wheel, if the hub is off centered, the spokes will all be either too big or too small...and the wheel will not turn.
    I think that illustrates the scripture you posted...especially where it says:( "which we are built together in Christ...") We are all like those spokes in the wheel of another person's life...and if God is their center it will work according to His plan.
    Hope you had a wonderful week-end, my friend!
    Love you~ Lisa
