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 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 remember 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. God’s hope is unfailing.
God loves you. He won’t leave you or forsake you. Hang onto God, and even when you can’t hang on, He will never let you fall. You are always safe in His loving, always faithful, always true, always grace-filled, nail-scarred hands.
Bodies may grow weary, but our spirits are infused with unlimited, infinite, endless, amazing power of God. Fly in the truth of God’s power and might.
God’s word doesn’t deny the fact your body grows tired and weary, however the beauty of those who trust and wait on God will find His strength. Read the verse below and insert your name, make the promise personal for you.
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)
Where does the Psalmist find hope in Psalm 42:11? “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.” ~ Psalm 42:11 (AMPC)
Based on the verse following in Habakkuk, what are the ways God’s strength gives you strength? “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]!” ~ Habakkuk 3:19 (AMPC)
