Are you feeling “burned out”? If you’ve been in that place before you know exactly what I’m talking about. It seems like no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to move ahead. The place we tend to experience “burn out” the most is in our spirit. We try and try but only feel more tired, empty, and lost. Can I suggest that if you are experiencing “burn out” in your life right now, that maybe you are trying too hard on your own?
The Bible tells us…“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.” (Eph. 2:8-9)
If you are experiencing “burn out” today, Paul’s challenge for us is:
#1. Surrender the notion that you don’t need God’s help. Whatever your problem or struggle is in this life, understand that God is the answer! You need Him way more than you know.
#2. God has an incredible, life-changing gift for you, but it does no good until you’ve accepted the gift. Through Jesus’ work on the cross we have God’s GRACE that is designed to get us through life’s trials. However, we will never fully experience the power of this gift until we surrender our lives to Christ.
#3. Put your faith in Christ. Someone said it like this…You can believe that a bridge will hold you up but you haven’t put your faith in the bridge until you’ve walked across it. You can say you have faith, but it will not become life-changing until you’ve put your faith in Him.
Through Christ, you don’t have to live burned out any longer! Thank you God!
