I’ve been longing for this guy for ages. I know for a fact and through His Word, that the Lord wants me to avoid him. That night I was so tired from work and I really wanted to find comfort in him, instead of the Lord. Before I knew it, my mind goes 200miles/hour. I knew it was not pleasing to God. I begged the Lord, “Lord can it be us? please…”. But I know I shouldn’t be even asking the Lord for that. The law and the church doesn’t permit us to be together. Frankly I’m not even sure if the guy loves me. So to replace that kind of love to the one the Lord has given me is absolutely absurd. I caught myself thinking, “what if I pursue this feeling and leave u Lord?”. Immediately, I felt sad for my thoughts. I confessed to God, “I know I’ve given up this feeling to you Lord, so why am I in this situation again? Lord I am sorry”. As tears began to fall, I asked Him “Lord, Do you get tired of me? because I get tired of myself and with all the thoughts running through my head, it feels I’m not fit to follow you, I hope you can answer me dear Father, because I just wanna hear from You”. Suddenly I am lead to open to Isaiah 40:28
“28Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.”
HE WILL NOT GROW TIRED OR WEARY!!!
wow thank you Lord.Thank you for your reply.Imagine that, it was just what I needed to hear (or see).
I’ve never paid attention to that part . I always jump to the part where it says “those who hope in the Lord (verse 31), meaning my part to hope in God. I neglected the fact that the Lord’s promises came in first – He will not grow weary (His part). He gives me an assurance first, then I can hope in Him!
ISAIAH 40 goes on….
29He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
Glory be to God! Who is ever faithful to answer His children.
Lord, my Heavenly Father, teach me to wait on you, to hope in You.
