Refreshers Are Refreshed

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 27, 2012

“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed” (Proverbs 11:25).

What does it mean to be refreshed? It is to be made fresh, to revive, to enliven, to invigorate, to rejuvenate, to energize, to restore, to recharge, or to revitalize. A meager cup of lukewarm coffee comes alive with a satisfying taste when mixed with freshly brewed beans. A lukewarm life is warmed and encouraged when refreshed with words of encouragement and acts of kindness. Everyone we meet becomes a candidate for refreshment.

Our faith cools down when Christ seems silent and circumstances continue to crumble, but a sincere prayer from a righteous friend warmly restores our confidence. Our hope feels deferred in the face of disappointment and rejection, but we are energized by the acceptance and love of a community of believers in Jesus. Hope loves company. Seek refreshment from your Savior and His followers. Be refreshed so you can refresh others.

“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint” (Jeremiah 31:25).

When your parched soul has been watered by dew from heaven, you can lead others to the Lord’s watering hole. People are frantically feeling robbed by insensitive institutions and greedy governments, but we can reconnect them to their generous God. Jesus gives us an abundant life to be shared with others who are absent of abundance. “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly” (John 10:10 nkjv).

Lastly, your refreshment reciprocates refreshment. When you refresh another financially, you are refreshed by faith and fulfillment. When you refresh another emotionally, you are refreshed by peace and contentment. When you refresh another spiritually, you are refreshed by the grace and love of God. Are you in need of refreshment? If so, receive Christ’s full cup of joy. Drink often with the Lord so you can generously refresh friends.

“Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him” (Psalm 34:8).

Prayer: How can I stay in a routine of refreshment so that I in turn can refresh others?

    I am the owner of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to develop my wholesale side of company. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain give me some advice ! I thought that the most ideal way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if someone could suggest a dependable website where I can get Vape Shop B2B Database with Emails I am currently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the best solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
