The Bible encourages us not to grow weary. “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary … do not grow weary of doing good. … For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” ~ Galatians 6:9, 2 Thessalonians 3:13, Hebrews 12:3
I wondered, how do you not grow weary? Some days it seems hard to even breathe. Then I realized, I need to keep my focus on Jesus who kept going until He fulfilled His purpose. While I am here on this earth, no matter how I feel, I can keep the weary thoughts from growing. I don’t need to plant weary, don’t need to tend weary, and sure don’t want weary to grow. By staying in God’s Word, anchored deep in His truth, I know God is greater than any enemy and any difficulty, God’s love never fails and He is in control.
God’s power is inexhaustible and as a Christian, we have God’s power through the power of Christ. When our bodies and spirits are weary, cast down, and barely hanging on, hope in God. He’s got you, He’s got you safe in His forever love. Hang onto God, and even when you can’t hang on, He will never let you fall, you are always safe in His loving hands.
Even “though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary.” ~ Isaiah 40:30-31 (NASB)
Wait for God and fly in the truth of His power and might. Our bodies may grow weary, but our spirits are infused with unlimited, infinite, endless, amazing power of God.
“Why are you cast down, O my inner self? And why should you moan over me and be disquieted within me? Hope in God and wait expectantly for Him, for I shall yet praise Him, Who is the help of my countenance, and my God. The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds’ feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]!” ~ Psalm 42:11 (AMPC), Habakkuk 3:19 (AMPC)
