Life can make you numb. Current events or personal circumstances can deaden emotions to the point where we barely sense anything. We know certain things are true, but struggle to “feel” like they are. The truth is, the lost world around us is relentlessly trying to get us back to its level…spiritual deadness. Ephesians 2:1 says this:

“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sin.”

In Christ, we aren’t just headed somewhere different in the future, we’re different now. God breathed life into us and brought our spirits from room temperature, to living breathing beings. The world will continually be trying to get us back to room temp, but in those moments we must seek the Life-giver all the more and pray for a fresh infusion of His power to refresh our spirits with His.

Prayer: “Father, please refresh this spirit with your power. May this heart feel your warming presence in the midst of a cold world, and be a genuine, living example of your redeeming love today. In Jesus’ name…”
