For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish. Jeremiah 31:25 ESV
Looking up key words in a passage can help bring new meaning to the verse.
Satisfy – fulfill desire, expectation, need; to put an end to
Languishing – (languish) lacking in spirit or interest; indifferent
Replenish – to make full or complete again; to supply with fresh fuel
Using these definitions, we can see how this verse comes alive with new meaning and depth.
For I will put an end to the weary soul and to every indifferent lacking soul I will supply fresh fuel.
WOW! So powerful!
God will supply with fresh fuel – a fresh word – when we are weary and worn down. He will fill us completely so we lack for nothing.
Spending time with His Word is the way God will speak and fulfill a dry and worn out spirit. We must make spending time with His word a priority. Continually dwelling in His Word and presence will help us prevent being depleted and working in our own strength.
Lord, help me to seek Your Word daily. Fill my empty soul and help me to wait on You when I become weary. Satisfy the thirst of my soul with You and Your Word. In Jesus’ Name – Amen.
Only God can satisfy my worn out and weary soul
