Lord, I get so tired…
In my weariness, I cry out to You.
Lord, do You even hear me?
And now the LORD speaks – the One who formed me to be His servant, who commissioned me…
He says –
"I will make you a light, and you will bring salvation to the ends of the earth.
At just the right time, I will respond to you.
On the day of salvation I will help you.
I will protect you.
Come out into freedom.
Come out into the light.
You will be My sheep, grazing in green pastures.
You will neither hunger nor thirst.
The searing sun will not reach you anymore.
For in My mercy I will lead you.
I will lead you beside cool waters.
I will make your mountains into level paths for you.
I will make high ways above the valleys.
I will comfort you and have compassion on you in your suffering.
I have written your name on the palms of My hands.
I will not forget you!
I will fight those who fight you.
I will teach you how to comfort the weary.
I will open your understanding to My will.
I will give you My words of wisdom."
And I respond –
"Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced.
I will set my face like a stone, determined to do His will.
And I know that I will not be put to shame.
All my enemies will be destroyed.
The Sovereign LORD is on my side!
HE IS NEAR."
The LORD has honored me, and my God has given me strength.
(Words taken from Isaiah 49 and 50)
