Human Limitations

“Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.”
Psalm 147:5

God is infinite. We are not.
We have limits. He does not. 

The first step to combat chronic fatigue is to recognize our needs and limitations. Typically our physical limitations are the most obvious: feeling overwhelmed, irritable, and weary. There are also emotional, spiritual, and relational limitations that can easily drain us but can be hard to identify. 

Our tanks run dry. That is not sin, it’s humanity – just as God planned it.
We have two choices, to rest or not.
If we choose to ignore the red flags of fatigue we will simply crash and burn. 

That’s not how God wants us to operate.
Embrace and receive His free gift of rest.
Allow it to refuel, refresh, and restore your mind, body, and soul. 

When you have recognized your own limitations, how can you start to depend on His infinite source of strength?

  1. Amen!  God is so faithful.  We often don’t need to ask for rest, He’ll clear our calendar for us. God sees us.  He always watches over us.  El Roi, El Rohi.  Our Shepherd will “make” us lie down in green pastures. Wouldn’t you rather choose to rest, rather than have God make us?
