Reflection: On Tuesdays this summer at Camp Mount Luther, we will be thinking about what God gives us. God’s gifts to us are evidence that His is A Love that Never Ends. So far on Fridays, these devotions have considered God’s gifts to the Israelites in the wilderness and gifts that sustain physically and spiritually. Today we consider the gift of a God who never grows weary.
What exhausts you? Physically, emotionally, spiritually. What just plain wears you out? Physical fatigue? On-going emotional expenditures? Doubt? We all experience it sometime or other. Those this-just-must-stop moments.
Isn’t it good to hear that our God is everlasting? Does not faint? Never grows weary? He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. What a great God. He raises us up on eagle’s wings. What an image. What a hymn! --Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff
