PPT (Isaiah 40v28-31)PrayMatthew 11v28-30So many people these days are spending less and less timesleeping and more and more time feeling tired and drained. Infact in 1910 an average persons sleeping time was 9 hours whilenow days that has gone down to less than 7 hours a night. AlbertEinstein who was a genus and influenced todays world spent anaverage of 11 hours sleeping, doesn’t that maybe say something.Did you ever feel so tired you didn’t want to move all youwanted to do was sleep? Or perhaps you were so tired you got aton of energy only to plummet down after the rush was gone. Iknow I have and more than once. I know at times I’ve felt sotired I could spend the whole day in bed only to feel just as tiredand sometimes even more. Earlier this year I was feeling really
tired and ready to give up but then I got given the opportunity togive it all over to god and He took it all off my shoulders andmade me as light as a feather. What I realised over time was thatI was spending so much time trying not to feel tired that I wasn’tspending anytime with God. You see Satan will try to putobstacles in our way to put our relationships with God on the back burner. He uses temptation to take us away from God putting our physical needs before our spiritual needs. Also I believe tiredness is an attack used by the devil, he twists us up Iall our tiredness which then becomes like chains around us.They stop us from doing the works of God. Sleep may not bewhat in this case for tiredness is not just in the body but themind and soul as well. When we come to a point when sleep justwon’t cut it we need to look to God to break the chains, for onlyHe can do that. As I read earlier in Matthew 11v28 it says:“Come to me all who are burdened and I will give yourest”We may be physically tired because we are just doing too much.All of you know the story of creation, God made the world in 6
days and on the 7
he rested. God spent 6 days working and awhole day resting. Maybe we should be cutting out some thingsin our lives and looking at what our priorities are. God has to beno. 1 in our lives, not no. 2 not no. 10, no. 1, we can’t cut himout of the equation. I used to be really bad at watching TV. Iwould even sit and watch infocomertials just because I could.But by doing that everything in my life was slipping so Istopped watching so much TV. and started to straighten up my priorities in life. Maybe instead of watching so much TV. or,whatever it is you need to cut down on, you could take sometime out and spend it with God. As I said earlier sleep may not be what we need, for sleep won’t fix our spiritual tiredness onlyGod can take that away. Only He can give us fullness and onlyHe can take the weight off our shoulders. Also do not let your heart become tired and weary towards God. Sometimes we getso tired we push god to the side and put all our energy into notfeeling so tired. The only thing is, by doing this you’re makingyourself more tired. If God asks you to do something do not, notdo it because you are tired or weary simply ask God to give you
