My Utmost For His Highest : "Are You Exhausted Spiritually?"

February 9, 2012

The everlasting God ... fainteth not, neither is weary.
Isaiah 40:28
Exhaustion means that the vital forces are worn right out. Spiritual
exhaustion never comes through sin but only through service, and
whether or not you are exhausted will depend upon where you get your
supplies. Jesus said to Peter - "Feed My sheep," but He gave him
nothing to feed them with. The process of being made broken bread and
poured out wine means that you have to be the nourishment for other
souls until they learn to feed on God. They must drain you to the
dregs. Be careful that you get your supply, or before long you will
be utterly exhausted. Before other souls learn to draw on the life of
the Lord Jesus direct, they have to draw on it through you; you have
to be literally "sucked," until they learn to take their nourishment
from God. We owe it to God to be our best for His lambs and His sheep
as well as for Himself.
Has the way in which you have been serving God betrayed you into
exhaustion? If so, then rally your affections. Where did you start
the service from? From your own sympathy or from the basis of the
Redemption of Jesus Christ? Continually go back to the foundation of
your affections and recollect where the source of power is. You have
no right to say - "O Lord, I am so exhausted." He saved and
sanctified you in order to exhaust you. Be exhausted for God, but
remember that your supply comes from Him. "All my fresh springs shall
be in Thee."
