Usually by Friday, I am pretty max’d out, dear friends. How about you?
No question, I am tired….it’s been an awesome week for me, but a really, really full one!
Whew! And we still have Friday.
Maybe some of you feel a bit run down or a little physically tired – like me? And some of you are weary from a spiritual or emotional battle you are facing or still dealing with, and you also may be approaching this Friday as yet another up and coming “Fry Day.”
Because even though we might be tired, weary, feeling defeated, or just plain bummed out…..guess what?
I have another secret to share…(just in case you didn’t know already, or maybe the enemy has made you temporarily forget)….
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him…..” 2 Chronicles 16:9
By the way….you don’t have to be perfect little people to have a heart that is loyal to Jesus. (Just in case you may be wondering about that too.)
HE is the answer to all that wants to fry us up and scramble us in this crazy life.
But we do need to partner with God in all that we do, (or don’t do) don’t we?
I find that usually, my “part” in that partnership is to remember that it is not a 50/50 kind of a deal…HE is the Powerful One…the Awesome One…
Only He can un-fry my fry days. Sometimes, He even turns it completely around and makes it become a fly day! Isn’t God amazing?
And check this out! I came across this tonight without even trying…See what I mean? God just does stuff like this all the time!
“Those who serve God must serve Him in His own way, and in His strength, or He will never accept their service. That which man doth, unaided by divine strength, God can never own. The mere fruits of the earth He casteth away; He will only reap that corn, the seed of which was sown from heaven, watered by grace, and ripened by the sun of divine love. God will empty out all that thou hast before He will put His own into thee; He will first clean out thy granaries before He will fill them with the finest of the wheat. The river of God is full of water; but not one drop of it flows from earthly springs. God will have no strength used in His battles but the strength which He Himself imparts. Are you mourning over your own weakness? Take courage, for there must be a consciousness of weakness before the Lord will give thee victory. Your emptiness is but the preparation for your being filled, and your casting down is but the making ready for your lifting up.” – Charles Spurgeon
This Friday, I am choosing to Fly with God even if I feel a bit fried.
I’ll just be riding on His wings, yo.
“….the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He trains my hands for war, so that my arms can bend a bow of bronze” Psalm 18:32-34
