He Giveth Power – Isaiah 40:29

Isaiah 40:29 – He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

Weariness is a real problem. Our minds and bodies can only take so much before finding respite. The soul also needs rest, what are we to do? There is so much work!

Thankfully, God designed the human body, indeed the whole earth, to have seasons of rest. We have summer and winter, day and night, and certainly the Sabbath or Sunday. “And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath” (Mark 2:27).

As we learn more about the cosmos, we find that Earth was made to have these seasons and cycles on purpose, and all nature relies upon periods of labor and rest equally. We all need rest, and God has provided us the means to get it. When our responsibilities threaten to overwhelm us and demands upon us keep us from natural rest, we can find rest and renewed strength in the arm of the Lord.

Jesus said, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:28-30). Thus, the Savior, meek and lowly, lifts us up as He lifted our sins upon the cross.

Brothers and sisters, bring your burden to the Lord, and leave it there. He will give you rest.
