Tied in Knots?
Have you ever been too tired to sleep? Have you ever fallen into bed so exhausted that it seems like every part of you is tied in knots? I know I have!
As soon as your head hits the pillow, a hidden generator goes on inside your head and suddenly you're wide awake. The name of this generator is "nervous energy."
Was today a day where there were so many people to see, so much to take care of that you ended up like Martha, "worried and troubled about many things?" Ask yourself whose energy you were going on, yours or the Lord's? If it was yours, remember the Lord is your FORTRESS and your REFUGE, even from nervous exhaustion. Go to His fortress... that warm, sheltered place which He has established in your heart... the place where you are perfectly protected, even from over-fatigue.
Once there, sink deep into His Presence and wait for Him. Know that as you rest during the night, He is filling you with all His strength that you will need to meet the hectic challenges of tomorrow; a day filled with the power, strength and energy of His love!
"...those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint" Isaiah 40:31, (NKJV).
Go to sleep enveloped by sweet dreams of the triumphant day you will have tomorrow; a day filled with the power, strength and energy of His love!
God loves you and wants to answer your prayer. Say this prayer with me:
Heavenly Father, how I praise You for the fact that You renew us each day. Help me to discipline myself to take the time to become recharged in You as I go through my busy day. For it is YOUR strength that I want, as well as Your peace and the power of resting in Your love, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
