A Word for the Weary

He gives strength to the weary, and to him who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary. | Isaiah 20:29-31

The Lord’s heart of compassion is with those who have been feeling weary in this season. Strength will rise as you continue to to wait upon Him. Keep praising the Lord, continually pressing into Him.  This battle is not yours, but your Heavenly Father’s (2 Chronicles 20:15). “The Lord your God is in your midst, A victorious warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy” (Zephaniah 3:17).

As you praise Him, you are be strengthened in your inner man, overcoming the darts of the enemy and taking ground. The Lord is making you strong, even in the areas where you feel the weakest. God’s grace is sufficient for you, for His power is made perfect in weakness (2 Corinthians 12:9). Continue to give the Lord the sacrifice of your praise, for He is worthy of it all! “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise” (Psalm 51:17).

Often, God is working behind the scenes in our lives when we least feel like it, but know that the Lord is fighting for you. The battle you are facing belongs to the Lord. As you continue to enter into His rest, regarding that which concerns you, anxiety and the spirit of unrest will begin to lose power. Instead, you will be strengthened by the power of His might!

“The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet” (Romans 16:20). He will perfect that which concerns you (Psalm 138:8), and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).
