Your Countenance Refreshed

[Monday, June 11]

“The Spirit says, let not the heaviness from the stress and demands of life cause your face to become weathered and beaten down. Keep your focus of servitude upon Me, and I shall ease your burden and refresh your countenance.”



Prophetic Scripture:

A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance… (Proverbs 15:13).

A person’s face says a lot about them. What is expressed on the face is a clear reflection of what goes on in the heart. Without even realizing it, we can allow the everyday demands of life to start putting pressure on our minds and hearts. Sometimes it comes from a busy schedule or just from trying to sort out multiple problems all at once. If we aren’t careful, eventually this internal stress starts reflecting on our faces. If this heaviness continues long enough, it creates permanent changes in people’s appearance.

The Lord has a provision that helps us overcome the stresses that weigh our countenance down. Jesus gave us the ability to come to Him with our heavy burdens. He said, “Take my yoke upon you…for my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Matt. 11:29-30). The yoke spoken of here was the “burden” of servitude to Christ. In other words, being under the burden or yoke of service to Him actually liberates you. Instead of spending so much time “serving” the demands of this life, refocus your service back to Jesus. It is the key to easing the burdens that weigh down your countenance. Focus your heartfelt service back on Him today and let Him refresh your countenance.


Prayer:

Lord Jesus, I bring You every heavy burden today. I refocus my heartfelt service and commitment to You. I give You my time and energy and I thank You for liberating me and refreshing my countenance. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
