I will be like the dew to Israel...
The dew is a source of freshness. It is nature's provision for renewing the face of the earth. It falls at night, to renew and rejuvenate vegetation. It is this great renewal value of the dew that is often used in scripture as a symbol of spiritual refreshment. Just as nature is bathed in dew, the Lord renews His people.
Heavenly dew is important in the life of a Christian. Without it, we may lack zeal, freshness and energy. Our spirits will be withered and hungry for lack of dew. Every day we must receive the “renewal by the Holy Spirit” that fills us with the energy and freshness of God's divine life. Quietness and stillness bring the dew. At night when the leaves and grass are still, the plants’ pores are open to receive the refreshing and invigorating bath. Spiritual dew comes from quietly lingering in the God's presence. Get still before Him. Wait before God in prayer, worship, praise and meditation until you feel saturated with His presence. This will give you fuel to move on to your duty with the awareness of the freshness and energy of Christ.
The grace of God brings rest and renewal to our soul when we completely reach the point of stillness before Him. Let us get still before the Lord today and always.
Prayer: My Loving Father, thank You for Your promise of being like Dew to me. Father, only in Your presence can I get a complete refreshing, renewal and rejuvenation of my spirit, soul and body. Father Lord, may I continually desire Your presence. May I continually make out time to be still before You, to get complete rest in You. In Jesus Name, Amen.
