I've came into contact with several people in the past week who are just tired. Life has pushed down on them so hard, and they are worn out. I'm blogging for the weary today, and I want to encourage the weary the God never gets tired.
Why do you complain, Jacob?
Why do you say, Israel,
“My way is hidden from the LORD;
my cause is disregarded by my God”?
Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
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.
God's people who were referred to as Jacob and as Israel, felt that God had forgotten them. They were discouraged and afraid because their concept of God was too small. At one point in all of our lives, we have felt like no one knows what we're going through. Like Israel we need to be reminded how BIG and MIGHTY God is. He is great! He never sleeps or rest, and He knows exactly what your life is like. He created you, and OH HOW HE LOVES YOU! Do you know the powerful God can give you power? Those who depend upon Him will exchange their weakness for God's strength. For those who hope in the Lord, we will renew their strength. What an amazing promise! He wants your walk in life to be filled with Him and His strength. So if you are feeling drained, pray to God to be refueled with Him! God is not hidden from you, but the question is are you seeking after Him? Jeremiah 29:13 says, "And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart."
Jeremiah 31:25"For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul."
