He Restores My Soul

"He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name's sake" (Psalms 23:3)


The 23 Psalms is often called the "Nightingale" song. The words are sweet and soothing, like the melodious sound of the bird. It brings comfort when we read and reflect on the words.


The simple definition of restore is: To repair someone or something to an earlier or original condition by repairing it, cleaning it, etc.


God is in the restoration business!  When we see nothing but darkness, feel nothing but pain and sorrow, God sees beauty.  "For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart" (1 Samuel 16:7).


We all need restoration. It's only when we stop resisting and completely yield to God that we can be made new. "Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay; you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand" (Isaiah 64:8).


There are four steps for spiritual restoration:

Humility: "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up" (James 4:10).

: "Therefore, repent and be converted in order that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord" (Acts 3:19).

: "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:6-7).
All who call upon the name of the Lord will be refreshed, renewed and salvaged

Communion/Fellowship:"Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you." (2 Corinthians 13:11)


Restoration can be painful, allow God to work in you and through you. "In his kindness God called you to share in his eternal glory by means of Christ Jesus. So after you have suffered a little while, he will restore, support, and strengthen you, and he will place you on a firm foundation" (1 Peter 5:10).




Restore my spirit, Lord

I need restored

My heart is weary

Strength from your Word

Oh, restore my soul


Revive the fire, Lord

Deep in my soul

Stir my desire

To work in your fold

Your zeal grown cold

Renew my love

Rebuild my faith

Oh, restore my soul


Renew my courage, Lord

It needs restored

My cup is empty

Refill it, dear Lord


Replace all doubts and fears

With faith so bold

Renew my love
