When You Feel You Can’t Go On, The Comfort And Strength Of Knowing God: Part 1

Have you ever found yourself feeling overwhelmed? Like you can’t go on? Last week was an immense challenge. I found myself working long 12-hour days, yet my list of unfinished tasks continued to grow each day. I felt completely drained. Not even the weekend provided the rejuvenation I needed. During my usual morning quiet time, I struggled to concentrate on God’s Word, and my prayers often began with a plea for help as I felt completely depleted. “I’ve got nothing, God,” was probably my most common prayer. Now you might be thinking, “Wait, aren’t you the one who writes these devotionals?” Well, my friend, that is precisely the most compelling proof that what you’re reading is entirely inspired by God. It is through these struggles that I am reminded of my strength in God as the Source of true inspiration.

Knowing God is all I need.

God takes us where we are, picks us up and carries us. His Word reminds us of Who He is, and how well He knows us:

O Lord, You have searched me and known me. 

You know my sitting down and my rising up; 

You understand my thoughts afar off. 

You comprehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. 

For there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O Lord, You know it altogether. 

You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me. 

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. 

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them

How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You. 

Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts (and anxieties); and see if there is ANY wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. 

Psalms‬ ‭139‬:‭1‬-‭7‬, ‭13‬-‭18‬, ‭23‬-‭24

‭‭‬ ‬‬My friend, if you are also struggling, God knows EXACTLY where you are. In fact, He has written an EXTRAORDINARY plan for your life!

You don’t need to worry about having more time; God has given you the right amount of time. 

You don’t need to worry about having more money; God accomplishes His plan without your money.

You don’t need to worry about being more beautiful, strong, successful, or loved; God loves you more than you can comprehend—He died for you while you were His enemy. 

Our only anxiety should be any space between us and God. 

Ask God to show you how to close that space. Confess. Repent. Fill your mind with His Word and He will transform your thinking. Close to Him, He reminds us who we are and why we are here. God’s purpose for us is more glorious than we could ever imagine!

  1. In addition to the last 2 or 3 verses of Psalms 139, I ask that GOD always show me how to express and share the fruits of the Holy Spirit with everyone I work with and around and everyone that crosses my paths so that I gather much fruit for Him to everlasting . I am submissive to Him and His ways.
