TIMES OF REFRESHING

TIMES OF REFRESHING
Sunday, March 4, 2018

Life is made up of seasons and times. The idea of seasons reveals a built in time of refreshing.

What causes us to need times of refreshing?

Life
Exodus 23:12 – God’s plan for refreshing
Exodus 31:17 – Even God needed refreshing

Psalms 23 – Gives us a good picture of life…
God wants us to enjoy verses 1-3; because He knows verse 4a is coming…following 4a is verses 4b-6.

2. Past
2 Samuel 16:5-14 – Rather than fight it, David faced his past and refreshed himself.

3. Sin
Isaiah speaks with prophetic utterance…
Isaiah 28:7-8 – Sin runs rampant
Isaiah 28:9-10 – Process of learning
Isaiah 28:11-12 – Promise of the Spirit

This prophecy was fulfilled in Acts 2:1-4
Acts 2:39 – This promise is for you even today
Acts 3:19 – Repent and be Refreshed
