Have you ever felt too tired to keep climbing? My phone just rang, and the voice on the other end of the line shared very difficult news. After a week of battling for every step, I wonder how I will carry on. My heart aches. My spirit is defeated and weary. I am struggling on so many levels — physically, emotionally, and psychologically. I need a touch from God. I need His healing hand. I long for His intervention. Can you relate?
This week as I pushed through and tried to dig “Into the Word” I discovered a fellow weary sojourner. In I Kings 19, I empathized with tired Elijah, hiding under a tree in defeat. But you know what I discovered? God met him there. God spoke to him in his defeat. God provided for him and nourished him. God encouraged him to stand:
Then He said, “Go out,
and stand on the mountain before the Lord.”
And behold, the Lord passed by,
and a great and strong wind tore into the mountains
and broke the rocks in pieces before the Lord,
but the Lord was not in the wind;
and after the wind an earthquake,
but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
and after the earthquake a fire,
but the Lord was not in the fire;
and after the fire a still small voice.
(vv. 11-12, NKJV)
God will speak gently to you if you go stand before Him on the mountain. You must keep climbing. His glory lies ahead.
Q4U: Have you heard His still small voice on the mountaintop? How has God encouraged you through a weary season? How do you keep climbing?
