3rd Aug, Tuesday



Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth does not become weary or tired. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives strength to the weary, and to the one who lacks might He increases power. Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, Yet those who wait for the Lord will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary. Isaiah 40:28-31


Burnout is when our strength is depleted, and our usual capacity for resilience is no longer there. It is in moments like these, we are encouraged to trust and wait on God. As we wait in His presence, we begin to release our weaknesses in exchange for new strength ready to face whatever comes ahead.


Prayer Pointers:

  • God will renew our strength
    – Give God our tiredness
    – Surrender our pride and self-sufficiency

    – Trading our distress for a God’s Hope
    – Trading our pain for God’s healing
  • Learning to trust God’s direction and guidance
    – Taking the time to wait on Him than quickly rushing through things
    – Learning to trust in God’s strength and ability than our own strength and ability
