He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Isaiah 40:29
A Power Source
There are times that we all feel like we are at the end of our rope. We have been burning the candle at both ends, and it seems like there is still so much more to do. We still have commitments at work to take care of. We still have commitments at home that we have to take care of. We want to serve at church and not let anybody down. We also wouldn’t mind running some errands, doing a little reading and maybe some self-care along the way. Looking at all that we have to do, and the energy that we have left sometimes we just cry out, “Lord give me strength!”
The funny thing about the Lord is when we need strength he supplies it. The issue is we have to ask. Too often we try to do too much on our own and in our own strength. We take on too much, try to fix too many things, and want to do it all in our own power. Doing it all in our own power is not what we were designed to do. We were designed to depend on and lean on the Lord. We were designed to get to the end of our rope, and then call out for help to make it the rest of the way. When we call out for help it is not a sign of weakness, but rather it is a sign of strength. It is a sign that we are depending on the strength of our faith, the strength of our Lord and the power that only he can provide to give us the strength we need
Friends, none of us can do it all on our own. Doing it all will ruin your health, break your spirit and eventually have you give up. When you feel like you are getting to that point, cry out for help. The Lord takes pleasure in helping his children. You are not burdening God by asking for his help, you are acting in faith showing that you believe him and take him at his word. So the next time you are feeling tired and weak remember you have a power source on high that gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
