God Is Not Tired Today

. .

I’m going to make a statement that’s not a major revelation but it’s an absolute fact we can all agree on.

Life can wear you down.

I understand being bone tired.

But I have never felt so tired that I wouldn’t make every effort to turn things around.

The Holy Spirit becomes my Energizer Bunny renewing my mind, refreshing my strength and re-invigorating my day.

I have fought issues and things that seemed unchanging. . .but they were NOT.

God alone can be described as unchanging.

Malachi 3:6 in the King James Version says:

“For I am the Lord, I change not. . .”

Not only does God not change. . .Jesus remains the same.

Hebrews 13:8 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is [always] the same, yesterday, today, [yes] and forever (to the ages).”

God doesn’t change. . .but we need to.

Change is a door that can only be opened on the inside.

Every challenge on earth is subject to change based upon the results produced by our focused faith.

Isaiah 40:28 in the New King James Version says:

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD,
The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.”

How I feel must submit to the One I know.

Let me say that again.

How I feel must submit to the One I know.

God is not tired today.  He is tirelessly working for me.

The Lord God Who made it all. . .is not "worn out" by it all.

Numbers 11:23 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“The Lord said to Moses, Has the Lord’s hand (His ability and power) become short (thwarted and inadequate)? You shall see now whether My word shall come to pass for you or not.”

I like the way God’s question to Moses is framed in The Living Bible version of Numbers 11:23 when it says:

“. . .When did I become weak. . .”

We should continually Praise God because He is always willing, able and ready to meet whatever needs we have.

Three Things Mankind Cannot Do:

1)  Exhaust God's Power.

1 Chronicles 29:11 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and Yours it is to be exalted as Head over all.”

Your God. . .our God is the source of all power right here on planet earth.  That’s why there is nothing too difficult for Him to perform.

Jeremiah 32:27 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh; is there anything too hard for Me?”

With the recent heat wave in California and other Southwestern states. . .there is talk of rolling blackouts to conserve electricity (power) during this emergency.

There has never been … nor will there ever be a power drain on God’s supernatural supply.

2)  Make God Tired Of Blessing His People.

1 Peter 2:4-5 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“Come to Him [then, to that] Living Stone which men tried and threw away, but which is chosen [and] precious in God’s sight.

5 [Come] and, like living stones, be yourselves built [into] a spiritual house, for a holy (dedicated, consecrated) priesthood, to offer up [those] spiritual sacrifices [that are] acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.”

If we feel like God is tired of us, maybe we should examine our own hearts. We might be applying our own human weaknesses to the holy character of God.

Our feeling that God is tired of us might just be our own impatience while waiting for Him to fulfill His promises to us.  It could also be that we are coming with the wrong spirit, doing these things out of obligation rather than trust and delight in God. Maybe we are coming with hearts that are not thankful for all God has given us. It could be any number of things.

The important thing to remember is that God is not a man. He is not flawed. He loves with a perfect love. And He delights in His children. So, does God get tired of us coming to Him over and over? No. If fact, it is His desire that we come to Him, and find in Him the peace, rest, and joy that the world and our flawed expectations and perspectives can never provide.

3)      Succeed in our own strength.

Isaiah 40:29 in the New King James Version says:

“He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.”

God gives us His strength.

This is another inexhaustible portion of His nature.

Isaiah 40:30 in the New King James Version says:

“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall.”

Sometimes we allow the weariness of our heart and mind to set boundaries to our success which God has not and will not set.

We may set limits to our success by what we perceive to be our limitations.

Even the most powerfully strong among us can only "go so far."

Isaiah 40:31 in the New King James Version says:

“But those who wait on the LORD. . .”

The Hebrew word translated here as wait is H6960 and in this specific instance it means:

"thoroughly bound together"

Four Specific Promises For Those Bound Together With Him.

1)  Our Strength Will Be Renewed.

Isaiah 40:31 in the New King James Version continues by saying:

“. . .Shall renew their strength. . .”

Some people choose to renew their strength with Gatorade. . .others, if you believe the current television commercials drink chocolate milk. 

Psalm 119:28 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“My life dissolves and weeps itself away for heaviness; raise me up and strengthen me according to [the promises of] Your word.”

Not only are we strengthened through the Word but our Heavenly Father is always available to lend a helping hand.

Psalm 46:1 in the Amplified Bible, Classic Edition says:

“God is our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.”

2)  We Will Soar Above The Mundane Issues Of Life.

Isaiah 40:31 in the New King James Version continues by saying:

“. . .They shall mount up with wings like eagles. . .”

An eagle is a majestic bird. . .one who soars higher than other birds with the wind beneath its wings.

The eagle is a symbol of strength and vision.  An eagle mentality is God’s way of delivering you from every adversity just like He did for the children of Israel.

Exodus 19:4 in the New Century Version says:

“'Every one of you has seen what I did to the people of Egypt. You saw how I carried you out of Egypt, as if on eagle's wings. And I brought you here to me.”

3)  The Sprints Of Life Will Not Exhaust Us.

Isaiah 40:31 in the New King James Version continues by saying:

“. . .They shall run and not be weary. . .”

You can run the race as never before because you have an never-ending source of energy. . .powered by the Holy Spirit.

Like the song says:

“Love lift us up where we belong

Where the eagles fly on a mountain high”

4)  The Day-By-Day Trip Called Life Will Not Wear Us Down.

Isaiah 40:31 in the New King James Version concludes by saying:

“. . .They shall walk and not faint.”

Our key is spending time in the presence of God.

The glory of God will energize and renew our faith.

When I am tired and a bit wearied by challenges of life. . .my spiritual, mental and physical batteries are re-charged in His presence.

So, my plan is to spend time with Him each day and grow to be more like Him.

Ephesians 3:20 says:

“Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams].”
