“Therefore repent and turn back, so that your sins may be wiped out, that seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…”
Going with the flow and giving into the demands of our flesh may seem easy and may even feel refreshing at times. It takes very little effort for a dead fish to float downstream. But it is not refreshing and certainly not life giving.
The call to repent and turn is a call to refreshing life in Christ. The enemy and the world assert that turning to Christ is dissatisfaction and denial. But God’s invitation is to swim upstream and enjoy His presence and love. True joy and refreshment is found when we risk swimming deeper in Christ’s love and trusting His loving commands and call to holiness are truly where our security and joy are found.
Be intentional today about the direction you go and the source of joy you pursue. Be intentional.
