One of my favorite restaurants was called Revive Cafe. It served some of the healthiest, most delicious food ever dreamed up. Every time I visited, I knew I would be filled with something worth savoring. This restaurant truly lived up to its name.

Did you know that God wants to revive our souls?

Isaiah 58:15 says, “For this is what the high and exalted One says— he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with the one who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.”

The word revive means….

To restore to life or consciousness

To regain strength

To experience renewed energy.

I am delighted to imagine that our loving Father, though He is great and powerful, is delighted to revive those who come to Him. He truly is the One who restores the weary soul, strengthening the ones He so loves, that we may again fly on wings like eagles.

May we not only seek out the product of His renewed strength today but also savor the process of receiving from our Savior.
