WE GET TIRED
There are times we get tired. We have so much to do. We are going here and there trying to get it all done. It seems that when we are our busiest, more things come up for us to do. And we get tired. However, we are told not to ever get tired of doing good. Maybe we should look at the things we are doing and be sure that what we are doing is good and what God wants us to do. Maybe we are tired because we are doing the things that are not of God.
Galatians 6:9 “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to never give up on doing good things for You. We don’t want to do it for the harvest of blessings but we want to do it because it is what You ask of us to do. Help us to determine what things we are doing that are not pleasing to You and to stop doing them. Show us what things we need to keep doing so we are doing good. Give us the strength, courage and wisdom to continue doing good things for You. And we thank You, Lord, for all You are and all You do. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
If we are tired we need to ask God to show us what things we need to stop doing.
God doesn’t give us anything we can’t handle. If we are tired from doing too much, we need to be sure all we are doing is God’s will and not our own.
When we are busy doing God’s work He will give us strength to carry on.
