Daily Devotional – 4/29/14 “Get tired!”

Being abused, get tired, you’ll find the strength to stand up and walk away. Drug addict, alcoholic; get tired of wearing that label and do something about it. Being walked over, get tired and stand up. No money, get tired of being without and get up and do something. Sick of what “they say” get tired and finally listen to what God says. Body in pain, get tired and finally go to the doctor. See, in my learning, I’ve found that when you get tired, you’ll do something about it. Now, I don’t mean being regularly tired but really, really tired. When you finally get tired of hand me down boyfriends, you’ll wait on your husband. When you get tired of little girl drama, you’ll wait on your wife. When you get tired of being spiritually hungry, you’ll search for God’s word until you are spiritually full. When you get tired of running from the calling that God has placed over your life, you’ll stand with your arms outstretched crying, “Lord, here am I; have your way.” When you get tired of folks counting you out, you’ll laugh when they start counting your blessings. When you get tired of fighting the world alone, you seek God while He can be found. When you get tired of being what everybody says you should be, you’ll become the person God has destined you to be. When you get tired of all the drama on your job, you’ll find another one. When you get tired of putting every dollar into that car that keeps breaking down, you’ll get another one. Yea; all it takes is you getting tired! When the people of Israel complained, God got tired and Numbers 11:1 says, “Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the LORD, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the LORD burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.” Yes, even God gets tired! All I’m saying is, stop settling for anything, stop accepting everything, stop answering to every name you’re called and stop diminishing the power of God who keeps His promise. Everything you desire to be, you can be but you’ve got to believe it first. Get tired of giving up and get up! Get tired of giving in and stand up. Get tired of not believing and trust God’s plan!
