I am not sure if it’s just me but lately I have been exhausted. I wake up early for work and and get off in the evening feeling a little drained. All the energy I had in the day was used up on work and that leaves close to nothing for me or anything else after.
I was wondering what the root cause of my exhaustion. I mean I had been gettingat least !hours of sleep, working out, prayer/ quiet time in the morning and devotion/ Bible reading during day or at night. I kept asking myself why now. I used to feel fine when I would engage in things that I shouldn’t or allow myself to become distracted. Now all of a sudden, when I choose to go on the right path, I have to fight for every last bit of energy I have left.
If this is you, you are not alone and this is not coincidence. You may be starting a new business, ministry, job, going back to school and stepping into a new season in life. The enemy wants you tired and unproductive. In fact, he doesn’t want you to push yourself past your comfort zone. Instead of them going home from work and putting in work for their business, they will settle for Netflix and fall asleep. A few cycles of this and you will be stuck in a cycle that keeps you from stepping into who God called you to be.
God reminded me in the most gentle way, “this will be the season that you have to push past being tired and the way you feel “. Oh yes, God got me all the way together! It’s so true. I have to keep this in mind. In order to accomplish something mew, I have to do something that has never been done.
You are tired because you are fighting a spiritual battle with an army that fears your next move! If you feeling exhausted, simply go to God in that moment and ask for his strength and direction.
Pray this prayer with me:
Lord I come to you feeling so tired. I recognize that there is a purpose for all things and this is no different. I have reached a point where I want to get hard at work for you. I know you have greatness to accomplish through me and I need the energy to handle what that may bring. I have tried to do what I can do but I give it you. There is nothing too big or too small for you. Your Word emphasized rest and hard word.Lord reveal to me the things that are draining me and help me to lay them at your feet. I pray all these things in Jesus name. Amen.
Keep pushing and praying! Continue to discover, accept and chase PURPOSE
