But the ones waiting for Jehovah shall renew power; they shall go up with wings as the eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not be faint! Isaiah 40:31
We need to rest get rid of fatigue. First to be restored. We can not do it all We may not get tired “of” God’s work, but all of can and do get tired “in” God’s work! Sometimes we must wait to regain our power.
Waiting is very difficult for most people, for it is an admission that there is nothing we can do at the moment to achieve our ends. Yet that admission is the first requirement for spiritual blessing– John Oswalt
Make sure when you become rested and ready to be restored you do on a clean slate. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me. Psalm 51:10 We first must have a repenting heart to get our connection, Back with God. We need this new heart for our life to change. When we say yes “change me” we will be restored, The Holy Spirit is waiting for your permission to perform the internal switch so you need to take some time and request a “true” heart exchange. Tell God that you’re ready for the internal revolution to begin and ask Him to accept your heart as the offering of your life and he will restore your spirit and give you back your peace. Then we will want to become new or newer in Christ.
“Because of this, we do not faint, but if indeed our outward man is being decayed, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day” 2 Cor 4:16. We need to strip away the old so we can be restored. Each time one is restored he becomes closer to God. This new life is not wasting away.(The devil’s Lie) On the contrary, the Christian is being “renewed day by day”, not by activity but by the presence of the Holy Spirit within him. Sometimes it comes powerfully from God but usually it comes in a room of men like you guys knowing you are dealing with the same things I am and you give another the Hope of Christ again.
“And be not conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, in order to prove by you what is the good and pleasing and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 We then need to follow God’s will for us but all too often we desire God to submit His plan for our life as a proposal to us, and then we determine whether or not to accept it. Such “cannot” be the case, for we see in this verse that the principle of dedication before direction. Divine guidance comes as a result of dedication. God does not ‘cast His pearls before swine,’ nor does He reveal His directive will to the uncommitted. We must see the true value to become committed for him to restore us. If you are committed he will restore you.
