Good morning everyone,
When you work and it feels as though your schedule takes you to the brink of exhaustion, how do you get refreshed? When we do service for the King, do you give it your all or do you have a tendency to hold back? When we do physical labor, our bodies need to be refreshed by getting the appropriate rest so that we can be restored. The same goes for putting long hours in at work and emotional stress on the body is probably just as hard on our bodies if not more than physical activity. Either way, God created you with a need for restoration! We get that with getting the appropriate rest that we need. Interesting thing about being restored. When you feel as though you can't go on, ask the Lord for you to finish the day with Him and you will be amazed at how you feel upon getting up! There is restorative powers in just being in His presence! Many times when I've gone to church with little or no energy, complaining all the way, I've come away with a totally new outlook. We trick ourselves into believing that we are too tired in being able to give anything. In reality, the Creator can give you 'super natural' powers without you having to have a long winters nap. When you allow the Lord to spend you however He sees fit, your entire makeup will be transformed. Have the faith that it talks about in Romans 4:5. It says, "But people are declared righteous because of their faith, not because of their work." The next time you feel you can't go on, think again and give Him a try and see what happens!
Your brother in Christ,
