TOPIC: WHEN FATIGUE THREATENS YOU
TEXT: Psalms 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!…..”
The world’s perception of being busy is regarded as doing more, and doing it faster. This actually is not taking us to a place of peace.
The distraction is nothing more than a momentary escape. Sooner or later we have to stop. Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that l am God.” When we’re forced to be still the magnitude of the weight we carry becomes enormous, the loneliness unbearable. We think
momentum keeps us from thinking…from feeling…from knowing sooner or later we have to stop.’ When you need to be spiritually refreshed, refilled and restored, go to the throne, not the phone! No matter how good your friends are, they can’t meet your need like God can. Jesus said, ‘Come to Me…and I will give you rest’ (Matthew 11:28 NIV). Consider it His personal RSVP to talk to Him and tell Him how you feel, like a child talks to a loving parent who can help them.
Designate if possible a special place to be alone with God, and discipline yourself to go there often. Simply do not tell Him what you need; listen to what He’s trying to tell you as well. Don’t be in a hurry to get back into the rat race; stay in God’s presence until you understand that the burdens you’re carrying were never meant to be shouldered alone.
The most important thing is this; we should find time for what we consider important, so get your priorities straight and ‘seek first His kingdom’ (Matthew 6:33 NIV). When you ‘come near to God….He will come near to you’ (James 4:8 NIV). Beloved, do you know that burnout is a negative effect on you as a result of working to live rather than living to work? Quit holding on to things that keep you from exalting God and giving Him His proper place in you Life..
