Encouragement for the Exhausted
1. Whatever God has called you to start, He will empower you to complete.
The Bible says that “He who began a good work in you will carry it through to completion.” It’s reassuring to remember that God’s work in our lives is based on His strength and not ours. He just calls us to be faithful, obedient, and to continue towards the finish line.
2. God is Bigger than whatever is stressing you out!
It’s encouraging just to remember that one hundred years from now, whatever seems so big and impossible to me in this moment will seem very insignificant but God will still be All-Powerful and the one taking care of us for Eternity.
3. Being Busy doesn’t impress God.
I think sometimes we fall into the trap of thinking that if we’re not constantly wearing ourselves out, then we’re not pleasing God. He never called us to break our backs to impress Him. In fact, even though life will often be hard, Jesus promises to be our Oasis.
Jesus says, “Come to me all you who are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. My yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
Rest in the knowledge that God loves you, He is with you, and no matter what you’re going through, He will be the one to carry you through!
