I Will Not Grow Weary
Good morning, I find it easy to get weary recently. This is not a reference to my age or too much exercise. I'm referring to a weariness of mind. With so many negative events going on in our country, and still the forced regulations from COVID, I feel weary of it all. There's like this heavy-hearted feeling just below the surface.
I asked Siri the definition of weary. I was told; "Weary... -reluctant to see or experience any more of; -tired of; -calling for a great amount of energy or endurance." That definition "reluctant to see or experience any more off" sounds like the feeling we could have regarding the second half of this year. Almost like if it were possible, I'd say, "do-over" or "I'm gonna check out I've had enough"... But no, we can't, and we won't. Instead, we remember our verse from yesterday. "Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good." But how? How do we continue to tread water, so to speak, when we are just plain worn out? Get into The Word. Keeping a godly perspective in every situation and event will strengthen our soul. This is truth. This is not me just saying it because it's a good thing to say. It's truth.
"I love you, Lord; you are my strength." Psalms 18:1 NLT When we don't keep ourselves continually plugged into the power source, God and His Word, we will feel drained out. When we're running on low, it doesn't take much to drain us dry. So the Word of God is like a battery charger to our soul. It builds us up in the spirit. It brings on a strength and fortitude we cannot muster up on our own. It takes our eyes away from ourselves. Our eyes must be turned outward because there is so much more that needs to be seen.
This is a time of miracles and great advances for the kingdom of God.
"He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:29-31 NIV
