As I write this there is a winter storm going on outside with up to 8” of snow expected. I’ve starting experiencing a weariness lately.. I heard the Spirit of God speak to me that it’s not just a physical issue but more importantly a spiritual issue. The Lord said “Your spirit is sad and weary because of a lack of prayer”. And that has got me thinking, about what Jude 1:20.
Jude 20 (HCSB) says “But you, dear friends, as you build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit,”
Basically, this is say PRAY IN TONGUES! This time of year many suffer from what called the winter blues… this is a state of depression that is brought on by the dark gloom of the cold winter months. In this depression brings on a bad outlook on life, ministry, finances and the list goes on and on.
Prayer helps us to refocus on The Lord and upon His Word, blessings and grace. Philippians 4:8 (HCSB) says “Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable—if there is any moral excellence and if there is any praise—dwell on these things.”
So, when the weariness sets in, when the ho hums start trying to take over and your thoughts start to turn dark. Turn up the prayer life even more. Pray in the Holy Spirit and watch your peace rise, your joy and happiness and wellbeing sky rocket!!
God is good!
