Soul Revival: His Instructions

 Psalm 19.7 

The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul.

My soul has been weary as of late. More than just a bit tired, achy, and bruised. Sad. Just worn down. And very sore.

So, like a sweet, tender, fragrant balm were those words. The instructions of the Lord are perfect, reviving the soul. And immediately upon reading such promise came to mind this clear instruction from His Word:

Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice! 

Phil. 4.4  

And just as immediately an inner smile tugged at me, but then my face crumpled as tender emotion flooded my sad, weary, bruised soul. He loves me and is caring for me, bringing revival even through His profoundly simple instruction.

The instruction to rejoice is not intended as a heavy burden, a cumbersome or difficult act of obedience. I knew instantly His heart of love that longed for me to have joy. Deep joy. His genuine concern for my well being and the health of my soul was at the heart of that very instruction. It is at the heart of every instruction.

Psalm 19 served as a reminder and clarification. His instruction is perfect, reviving a weary, broken soul like mine.

Do you need revival today? Look to His instruction; trust and obey. There is balm to be found, sweet, tender, and fragrant. It will restore and revive your wounded, aching, tired soul like nothing else can.
