Jer.31:25: Restoration and Joy for the Weary and Sorrowing.

Jeremiah 31:25 (NIV)  I will refresh the weary and satisfy the 

Jeremiah 31:25 (AMP)  For I will [fully] satisfy the weary soul, 
and I will replenish every languishing and sorrowful person.  

Jeremiah 31:25 (CWR)  I will strengthen the weary and refresh 
the faint. 

Tragedy will give birth to blessing; grief will give birth to 
joy. [The 365-Day Devotional Commentary] 

Although God can do this for anyone, anytime and anywhere; there 
are special times where this experience will happen: 

	When we come to Jesus: Matthew 11:28 (KJV)  Come unto 
me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you 

	When we believe in Jesus: John 7:38  He that believeth 
on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow 
rivers of living water.  

	When we are forgiven: 1 John 1:9  If we confess our 
sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse 
us from all unrighteousness.  

	When we are converted: 2 Cor. 5:17  Therefore if any 
man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; 
behold, all things are become new.  

	When we receive the Holy Spirit: Galatians 5:22-23  But 
the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, 
gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no 

	When we pray: Isaiah 26:3  Thou wilt keep him in 
perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in 

	When we read the Bible: Acts 20:32  And now, brethren, 
I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able 
to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them 
which are sanctified.  

	When we serve Him: Isaiah 40:31  But they that wait 
upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with 
wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall 
walk, and not faint.  

	When we sing to Him: Acts 16:25  And at midnight Paul 
and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard 

	When we suffer for Him: 1 Peter 3:14  But and if ye 
suffer for righteousness' sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of 
their terror, neither be troubled;  

	When we witness for Him: Matthew 28:19-20  Go ye 
therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, 
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: [20] Teaching them to observe 
all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you 
alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.  

	When we worship Him: Psalm 16:11  Thou wilt shew me the 
path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand 
there are pleasures for evermore. 

	When we walk with Him: Micah 6:8  He hath shewed thee, 
O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but 
to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God.  

	When we wait on Him: Psalm 27:14  Wait on the Lord: be 
of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, 
on the Lord.  

	Most anything that draws upon God's Sprit: 2 Cor. 3:17  
Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, 
there is liberty.  

	Then finally when we are raptured: Rev. 21:4  And God 
shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more 
death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more 
pain: for the former things are passed away.
