Isa 40:30 Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
I reached a limit yesterday.
After abruptly waking up at 1am and not going back to sleep, I put in a regular days work.
About 830pm, I “hit the wall” and had to go to bed. However, my exhausted body let me know I had done too much. I got the chills! Not just cold but teeth chattering – body shivering chills. I even got back up and jumped into a super hot shower to warm up.
I got back in bed and through chattering teeth, prayed to God for healing.
About midnight the complete opposite grabbed hold of me. I was hot. I threw back the quilts that I had previously needed and took off the pair of socks I was wearing to help counteract the chills from hours earlier.
Although the air-conditioner showed 68 in the bedroom, it felt more like 98 to me.
This morning, I am feeling much better; having got a pretty good nights sleep.
I’m not a young man any more.
There once was a time I could stay awake for 24 hours, get a couple of hours sleep, and keep going with no ill effects.
Now my body demands more from me in terms of rest and sleep.
Isaiah said that the young become weak, tired, and exhausted. I no longer consider myself a young man, so the same exhaustion would be multiplied in me.
But whether you’re young or old, the rest of the verse holds a promise from God.
Isa 40:30-31 Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
I trusted in God, although Linda wanted me to take some meds.
I trusted in God and found new strength.
Today I am soaring high like an eagle.
I’m refreshed and ready for the day and ready for church tonight!
I do not condemn anyone that uses medicine for various health issues, but the best medicine is God Himself!
