My org files are stored on the cloud so I can edit them from multiple machines. Whenever I make a change to an org file (from a different machine), emacsclient does not reflect these changes, but a regular instance of emacs does. I understand that the emacsclient is just an emacs server. How can I get emacsclient to show the changes to my org files?

Add (global-auto-revert-mode 1) to your init to automatically refresh files changed on disk.

As the doc states (C-h f global-auto-revert-mode):

If called from Lisp, toggle the mode if ARG is ‘toggle’. Enable the mode if ARG is nil, omitted, or is a positive number. Disable the mode if ARG is a negative number.
