The law of the LORD is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. – Psalm 19:7 (NIV)
I remember one time when I ran a mile for my P.E. class. It was a pretty hot day and after I ran it, I was so thirsty, all I could think about was getting a drink of water. I ran to the water fountain in the hallway and drank for what felt like forever. That had to be one of the best and most refreshing drinks, I had ever had. After doing all that running, I was thirsty!
The Bible can be like that in our lives also. It can refresh us. Life is hard. The last year we’ve had has been hard on us all. But the good news is that we can find refreshing in God’s word.
The word of God is perfect, and it is there to help you when you need it. Reading your Bible can give you the wisdom and direction you need when life gets hard.
So if you’re facing something tough, or even if you’re not, know this, time spent reading God’s word is not wasted. It’s there to refresh your soul when you’re tired and when things are hard. So go to it. Get the refreshing you need to do what God is calling you to do!
