Today I would just like to encourage anyone out there who is feeling spiritually, physically and mentally tired. I know that sometimes, things can seem so heavy and so dark that it makes you wonder “where is God?”. You sometimes even feel like your hand is slowly slipping out of God’s hand and your too tired and too drained to try to tighten the grip. Don’t give up my sister, don’t give up my brother. I remember a time when I was driving and was caught in a bad rainstorm. The rain was coming down so hard I could barely see what was in front of me. I had to reduce my speed to barely nothing. I remember asking God, Should I pull over until the rain stop? In my spirit I heard “in order to come out of this storm, you have to keep moving through it”. I thought to myself “if I have to drive slow like this, I’m never going to come out”. However, my instructions were to keep moving. The rain started coming down even harder, thunder and streaks of lightning were surrounding me. Fear tried to attack me that I may lose control of my car or that another car may run into me. I was tired of being in the car, I was tired of being in a storm, and I was frustrated that I had to drive so slow. I was ready to come out, but it seemed like the storm wasn’t going to end. I finally accepted the fact that I am in a storm and I’m not going to come out until God brings me out. My complaining and frustration were not going to stop the storm, my fears were not going to make it end, my anxiousness was not going to decrease it. So, I decided “if I’m going to be stuck in a storm regardless of how I felt, then I might as well learn to praise God in the storm”. I started worshiping and singing songs to the Lord. I started meditating on his goodness. I started to think about the things that he had done for me,( and I lie to you not), although I was still in the storm, my fears started to leave. My frustration started to go away, in fact I started enjoying myself while in the storm. I noticed that my driving speed started to increase because the rain wasn’t coming down as hard. The thunder and lightning went away, the clouds began to break and I could see up the road, that the sun was out. I began to praise God more because I could now see that I was almost completely out of the storm. I kept moving as God had instructed me to do, and he brought me out. You may be facing something that is much more unbearable than driving in a storm. But I guarantee you that if you would keep moving with God, tighten your grip to his hand and hold on he will(without a shadow of doubt) bring you out. Don’t give up, don’t give in, don’t give out. God will see you through!
Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become weary or tired. His understanding is inscrutable. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who lacks might He increases power. 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.
