Bible Journal – The Slough – Pull Up A Chair

Weariness can rear its ugly head in different forms. Sometimes we feel as though no one cares about what we are going through. At times, we feel as though we are totally alone, even though we have family and friends all around us! Since the Holy Spirit resides within the born-again believer, then we are never alone!

These verses totally blessed me! They are necter for the weary! At any time, we can turn to God’s word and be refreshed:

But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. ~Isaiah 43:1

And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest. ~Exodus 33:14

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. ~Psalm 112:7

I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. ~Psalm 32:8

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. ~Matthew 11:28

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. ~John 14:27

Granted, you may not be feeling afraid. But weariness can bring about fear if you allow it to progress. When we wallow in the Slough of Despond, we allow ole slew foot an opportunity to discourage us further. Don’t let your thoughts wander where the devil would have you. Instead, encourage your spirit in the Scriptures and know that God sees you, He knows your needs, He has called you by name and has pormised to guide you with His eye!
