Just a Thought:
What do these words have in common;
A connotation or implication that there has been work or labor done either physically, emotional, psychologically or spiritual and it was a tedious one, one that required the exertion or over exertion of strength, focus, time and zeal.
The bible uses the word “Weary” as a state wherein strength, power or zeal for a thing or task is drained or being drained. This occurs largely during the performance of the task or after the task is done.
One fundamental cause or reason for weariness is failure or perceived failure at frequent attempt or repetition of the task which breeds disappointment and a lost or dampened of hope…Job 6:11 says “What is my strength, that I should hope? And what is mine end, that I should prolong my life”
Proverbs 13:12 says “Hope deferred maketh the heart sick; …”
Isaiah 57:10 says “Thou are wearied in the greatness of thy way; yet sadist thou not, there is no hope…”
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall”
Is it me or what???There is so much Weariness in believers these days. Many are tired(fainting) of praying. Luke 18:1;
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint”
Tired of well doing…2nd Thessalonians 3:13;
“But ye, brethren, be not weary in well-doing.”
Tired of giving; Tired of believing, Tired of loving…Matthew 24:12;
“And because iniquity shall abound, the Love of many shall wax cold”
Tired of caring, tired of studying the word…Ecclesiastes 12:12;
“…and much study is a weariness of the flesh”
People of God, what are you tired of? What do you see in your life (both spiritual and physical) that is not the way the Lord commands it to be?
Don’t give up; don’t lose hope, you and I might not know the how’s and when’s of God’s ways, means and purpose but this one thing I know, Jesus never says a thing that he cannot do and does not mean. He has said in John 14:18;
“I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.”
“let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said I will never leave thee nor forsake thee”
God bless you all.
