Let God Increase Your Strength
Isaiah 40:29 … He gives power to the faint and weary…
When I feel myself starting to get weary, I go to the Lord. I have learned it is better to keep up regular maintenance than to wait until a breakdown occurs and then try to repair the damage.
It is wise not to use up everything you have and totally deplete all you resources – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is easy to get burned out from overwork or just being continually upset and frustrated about problems, especially when you focus on them rather than keeping your eyes on the Lord.
Do not rely on yourself and your own strength and abilities. God has promised to provide the strength, energy, and power you need to keep going. So Learn to relax more and allow the Lord to restore and renew you before you start falling apart. Come apart daily and spend quality time with Jesus.
Trust God's Timing
Psalm 31:14-15 …My times are in your hands
Trust requires you to place your time in God's hands, believing that His timing is perfect for all things in your life. Your human nature wants good things to happen in your life now- not later. But as you mature in the Christian life, you learn to believe for things not now, but in God's perfect timing.
Trusting God often means not knowing how God is going to accomplish something and not knowing when He will do it. But not knowing "how and when" stretches your faith and teaches you lessons in trust. Remember: Trust is not inherited; it is learned. Timing plays an important part in learning to trust God. As you experience His faithfulness over and over, you will give up trusting yourself and place your life in His very capable hands. What a wonderful place to be!
