Psalm 23:3
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

A wick in an oil lamp will shine brightly for as long as it is fuelled by oil. If the oil is not topped up, you will notice the wick itself beginning to burn and smoulder. Soon the effect of light given out by the oil lamp begins to fade and wick eventually turns to ash, no longer of any use. So it is with any soul who burns vibrantly for the purposes of God without replenishing their fuel.

The Bible is packed with references pointing to the need for rest and replenishment. For instance, Jesus himself frequently drew away from the crowds to be alone with the Father in prayer. Notice how he spent time alone with God the Father to refill his oil pot. It was in the stillness of submission to God that the Son of Man restored his strength and purpose.

The presence of God in prayer is your fuel reserve. If you find yourself burning the candle at both ends, it may be time to draw away in prayer to rest. It’s in prayer that we are told to present our anxieties to the Lord with thanksgiving. It’s in prayer that we restore a peace that passes understanding. And it’s through pray that we cast our cares on the Lord. Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” How else do we come to Jesus, but in prayer?

Thank you for refuelling my tanks. In you I rest

“Oh Lord, I’m tired! I’ve had a time of it and I feel I just can’t go on. So, I choose to come to you in prayer and cast my cares upon you. I’m heavy laden, O Lord, give me rest. I confess that you are my source and my resource – the source of my strength and the resource for my purpose. Give me wisdom to deal with my workload and responsibilities. Thank you for your peace. Thank you for your replenishment. Thank you for refuelling my tanks. In you I rest. Amen”

What is GodTracker?
GodTracker is a weekly e-mail devotional based on the premise that God has a plan for our lives. His word calls us to seek his will by acknowledging him in all our ways and tracking this plans in faith.
GodTracker owes its origins to an international Christian radio programme produced by Dudley Anderson called, On Track. Although On Track went off-air in 2005, GodTracker has continued to help people track God's plans and purposes for their lives since July 2003.
