Seek revival

2 Samuel 6:1-5, 12b-19, Amos 7:7-15, Psalm 24, Psalm 85:8-13, Ephesians 1:3-14, Mark 6:14-29

Just a short thought for this Sunday.

It is tough going sometimes in life. We face challenges on a daily basis during our journey on earth. There are times where we feel tired and overwhelmed. In previous entries, I have reminded the readers that our faith is the strength that lies within us to get us through those moments.

However, just like many other power sources, we need to be re-charged and revived periodically. We need to be reminded about our faith, which is our strength. We need to rejuvenate our spiritual selves.

Therefore, I recommend that we read all the words in the Holy Bible, starting with the Scriptures annotated above. They remind us of how God rewards the faithful and admonishes the weak. The Bible reminds us that Jesus' love does conquer all, including the wrath of His father. The Bible is also a guide to bring us back when we inadvertently stray away.

We must utilize all the tools that God has placed before us to stay strong in our faith. The enemy, on a constant seek-and-destroy mission, finds ways to consistently to keep us from the Truth and the Light of wisdom. However, as we refer back to our teachings and our weapons of spiritual warfare, we will overcome anything that the enemy throws at us.

Then you can dance for God like King David, and steer clear of adversity like Amos. Learn to love God, even in the darkest moments, and you will be surely revived.
