GOD I’M TIRED

Have you ever been so defeated, you have told God, “I’m tired of ______________!”?  You fill in the blank of what you are tired of doing or being.  Maybe you are tired of running away from God.  Maybe you are tired of fighting your battles alone. Maybe you never stop to rest, and you have exhausted yourself with the busyness of life.

The demands of this world makes us feel defeated and worn.  We are exhausted from meeting the world’s standards that we want to give up.  These are the moments when we need to stop and realize we are doing things under our own power rather than God’s.  We are working in the flesh.  If we were working under God’s power, we would live in victory rather than in defeat.

It comes a time when we can only do so much through our own strength, and we have to say to God, “I need You!”.  We have to allow God to be on the front line of the battlefield and take the lead in our circumstances and emotions.  We must get up, dust ourselves off, and try again.  We do not stay down, but we stand up to the challenge.

Instead of saying, I’m tired of depression, heartache, disappointment, and anxiety, say I’m tired of feeling defeated, broken, and unworthy by the devil. I encourage you to declare that over yourself today. You can defeat satan by telling him he has no room in your life to make you miserable.  Crush the devil’s schemes by empowering yourself with God’s truth.  What does God say about who you are?  What does God say about the situation you cannot seem to have victory in?  Instead of being defeated and depressed, be bold and stand strong on God’s Word!

    My Weekly Blog: God I’m Tired

    I posted an old blog due to not having time to write this week. This blog reminds me that I am not defeated and to stand strong in opposition. God gives us the strength to conquer anything that comes our way.

    • Those are all great questions. And I think this blog can help you answer those questions. We can put anything in the blank: God I’m tired of __________________________. Tired of fighting. Tired of the enemy’s resistance. Tired of caring. It just means that you are exhausted and need to rest. Rest in the arms of God. Stop going to the battlefield and rest. Yes, the problem will still be there. The resistance will still be there. Ignore it and focus on God. Get your strength back through God and get back up and fight when you are strong enough — mentally and physically. Don’t give up the fight. Rest in between battles. You are almost to your victory line to say, “I am tired of feeling defeated.” “I am tired of feeling like I don’t care.” I promise it will happen. Allow God on the batttlefield with you and let Him lead you to victory. Don’t try to do it with your own strengths. You get tired more easily that way.
