Your heavenly Father is so eager to care for you, that while you are timidly asking for a nibble of peace and joy, He is longing for you to openyour mouth wide so He can fill it.  Perhaps you find the duty of your calling too heavy for your weak faith. Look to God for strength. When you are sick of your work and ready like Jonah to run away, encourage yourself with God's words to Gideon: "Go in this thy might... have not I sent thee?" (Judges 6:14)

Begin the work of God has given you, and you will engage His strength for you; run from your work, and you engage God's strength against you. He will send some storm or other after you to bring His runaway servant home. His watchful eye is always on you, and when you stagger He picks you up-- burden and all-- and carries you to your destination nestled in the bosom of His promise: "God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape..." (1 Corinthians 10:13)

Search your heart from one end to the other and gather up all your weaknesses. Set them before the Almighty, as the widow placed her empty vessels before the prophet. Expect a miracle of deliverance from the limitless resources of God.” WG 

It often seems like we are leaky vessels. God gives us His Word and we apply it for the moment only to forget it in the next trial we encounter. The good news is that God is constantly ready to fills us with faith, hope and strength so that each storm we face is not able to overcome us. For this I say rejoice in Him who is faithful never gets tired of empowering us on our journey!   For the complete devotional purchase  'The Christian in Complete Armour daily devotional by Gurnall and Bell.
