(b) Weariness causes us to lose our true focus on what is and what is not important in life. In our weariness, we find ourselves more concerned about our physical and emotional needs than we are about our spiritual needs. We begin to look at what's happening through our physical eyes and not the eyes of faith. We look at the solution to our problems in the light of our own resources and not God's resources. In our weariness, our circumstances become bigger than our God.
is the man whose strength is in thee."
This kind of weariness is
escapable. We don't have to learn to live with it. God has a remedy
for it and it's given to us in
Isaiah 40:31, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint."
What does it mean to wait on the Lord?
There is a place that God has appointed to be a waiting place, and that place is our prayer closet. It's God's spiritual spa for those who are weary and tired in well doing. We go in weary and tired in body and spirit and we come out renewed in strength. It's God's great exchange room. We enter it to exchange our strength for his.
