Exodus 33:14 The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”
Often I’m paralyzed by the fear that God is asking me to do things beyond my abilities. I worry, as Moses did in Exodus that the job is too big. The problem too complex. Large goals mean stretching yourself and that’s frequently a painful process.
I’m reminded of a weight lifting term, “perform reps to muscle failure”. Meaning, keep going until you can’t do it any more. When my emotional strength is exhausted, I find the Lord filling in my gaps. Like a spotter, helping raise the bar back into place, He is there to take the weight I can not lift. His promise is that He will be with me. That assurance gives me rest and peace on the journey. No matter now long the distance or how great the challenge.
