Are you running on empty and its only halfway through the month of the new year?
When I go to the gas station I always fill up my tank because of the inevitable unexpected like being stuck in rush hour traffic with no gas station in sight.
There are many unexpected turns in life such as a health condition and your insurance coverage is not enough. A major financial setback and your child has to leave their dream school to settle for a more affordable college. Your work has become more demanding with less qualified help and staying longer at the office. You start to feel drained, exhausted, and even empty losing strength and balance emotionally and spiritually in your life. You keep asking yourself is this really worth it?
One of the key principles in life that I found from getting burned out or running on empty is to have a quiet devotional time with God.
The power of God reaches us to strengthen us, heal us, fill us with a renewed strength and to be ready to face the ‘rat race’!
As a believer in Christ, God’s Holy Spirit lives within us, but we can tend to use up all the gas or have a leak where the tire eventually gets flat. Putting God first spending time in prayer and reading His Word will change our perspective and keep your tank full. Ask the Lord to fill you with the power of His Spirit and he will give you ‘Living Water’ The Holy Spirit is the force within you as a believer in Christ. “Do not be drunk with wine, but be filled with the Holy Spirit… (Ephesians 5:18).
If your doubting God ask Him to fill you up and reveal His presence in your life, because the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and closer than you think. Let God fill your tank spiritually and emotionally and He will guide you today and everyday.
“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord , the Creator of the ends of the earth Does not become tired or grow weary; There is no searching of His understanding. He gives strength to the weary, And to him who has no might He increases power. But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] Will gain new strength and renew their power; They will lift up their wings [and rise up close to God] like eagles [rising toward the sun]; They will run and not become weary, They will walk and not grow tired”.
Isaiah 40:28-29, 31 AMP
Enjoy your day my friend and may you have a fulfilling weekend.
