Weariness comes with the territory of being poured out, day in and day out for God’s kingdom. I have heard time and again that perhaps, when one is weary, that person is doing too much. But I contend that doing too much in one’s own strength may cause weariness, but never can one do too much in God’s strength for Him. Never.
Paul spoke of being a poured out drink offering. Poured out represents a glass, upside down with little or no liquid left in it. How can I ever pour out until I have emptied myself to the same extent that Paul, or even Christ did? I have yet to be that self empty.
Today was busy. Today felt as if it would never end. Today was done in my strength.
Tomorrow, perhaps will be restful as my life is poured out for Him in His power for those He puts in my path.
God, let me rest now in You, weary, but at peace knowing how I need to do tomorrow better for the Kingdom.
