Jeremiah 31:25 (ESV): "25 For I will satisfy the weary soul, and every languishing soul I will replenish."
God acts on behalf of those who cannot. He uplifts those who are downtrodden and strengthens the wear and feeble. He shows up epically when we have lost hope. All we have to do is look for Him and we will see His hand in the middle of our troubles.
As God continues to proclaim all that He will do in the lives of those living in captivity in Babylon, He describes to us their soul condition. They will be weary and weak, fatigued and feeble, depleted and depressed. Why wouldn't you be? This is a result of disobedience! Yet God says I will satisfy your weary soul. I will replenish your languished soul. What an amazing prophetic promise God gives here!
What is the condition of your soul this morning? Are you weary and tired? Has the spiritual fight taken all your strength and hope? God cares for you thus you can cast your cares upon Him (1 Pet 5:7). Look to Him for strength (Ps 105:4), trust in His ability and strength (Ps 18:3). His grace is sufficient for your weakness and His power is made perfect in your weakness (2 Cor 12:9). Approach His throne of grace with boldness in Christ this day that you might receive mercy and find grace to help in your time of need (Heb 4:16). "Come to ME, " Jesus said, "all who labor (weary and worn out) and are heavy laden (weighed down) and I will give rest" (Matt 11:28-30). He is the source of all things. Lift your eyes for behold, the Lord stands for you, amen?
Father, we thank You that we are not alone. You are near to us who put our trust in You. Strengthen our souls this day. May we rest in Your loving arms and seek consolation from You alone. Uplift our thoughts, encourage us to press on. We thank You for being all that we need always in Jesus name we pray, amen.
