The Lord…never grows weak or weary.” (Isaiah 40:28 NLT)
The Merriam-Webster dictionary describes Burnout as “exhaustion of physical or emotional strength or motivation usually as a result of prolonged stress or frustration.” Many have felt its claws while on the job, some even switch careers because of it. But what about spiritual burnout? What causes it to occur in us?
Spiritual burnout is what happens when we rely on our own strength to please God. For many that are new in the Christ Life, we are the only place they made feed from spiritually. We talk with them, counsel them, meet with them at their point of dilemma. If we are not providing for our spiritual sustenance, these well-meaning people could bleed us dry. At this point, we burnout & want nothing to do with God.
Pay attention to your own spiritual condition! Only by God’s help can we make a difference in others anyway. Be refreshed in God’s presence. Pour it out on those around you! You are loved today!
