How great our God is! How loving our God is! Whatever need we have, we can turn to Him for help, strength and encouragement. When we are not able, He is.
God wants you to know He is aware of how you feel and of the burden that wearies you so very much. He wants you to ask for help, and He wants you to wait for His timing to life whatever burden is weighing you down. Could it be that part of your problem is trying to solve your problem on your own power? Did you know God stands ready to empower you to make it through this, whether it’s to strengthen you while He alone intervenes or whether He shows you the way out along with the part He wants you to play? God is always here for you, and He stands ready to help in ways that you probably can’t imagine. So, ask Him what He wants you to do along with giving you His power to accomplish what is before you. Then, like the children of Israel at the Red Sea being pursued by the Egyptian army from the rear and blocked by a body of water in the front, wait to see what He does and be ready to move forward to victory in His time.
Encouraging Scripture: Psalm 27:14 & Psalm 28:7
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart; wait, I say, on the Lord! The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices and with my song I will praise Him.
Father God, You sent Jesus and the Holy Spirit to minister to the hurting. I am weary and ask You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to minister to me. Grant me strength and energy and everything else I need to break free from my weariness so I can move on to be and do all that You have for me to be and do. In Jesus’ name, amen.
