I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God Psalms 69:3 (NIV)
In many ways, our spiritual life is a lot like a cell phone battery. Do you ever feel spiritually drained? Have you ever felt that the spirit has just been exhausted in your life?
There is no weariness like the soul weariness the psalmist speaks of here. Quick surges of faith may occur in an inspirational moment, but how do you sustain faith during prolonged sickness, continued temptation or seemingly unending relational struggles?
Feed on living bread. Jesus said man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God (Matt 4:4) When you come to the end of yet another day that has drained your physical, emotional and spiritual strength, sit down and read the Word of God. If you can stay awake stand up and read it aloud. You may not remember it all, but know that your soul is being fed by the Holy Spirit. So, spend time with God who is your power source.
Father thank you that when we are weak you are strong. We thank You for your Word that sustains us day to day. All that we are is because of you. Your love and peace gives us strength. Thank you for being our provider, comforter and healer. We give all our love, honor and praise to you. For you alone are worthy. In Jesus Name, amen.
