Daniel 7:25 – “And he shall wear out the saints of the Most High.” (AMP)
Do you feel weary? Weary of the prolonged struggles that you have been facing. Weary of the seemingly unending spade of challenges that are being thrown at you. Weary of the routines in your job and you are there just to earn a living rather than being passionate about it. It could even be the weariness that you are facing in family situations or in your relationships.
We must realize that part of Satan’s plan for end-time believers is to make us weary. Daniel 7:25 gives a vivid description of a vision the prophet Daniel received regarding the last days: “And he ‘shall wear out the saints of the Most High'” (AMP).
But God wants you to be encouraged. Romans 8:37 (AMP) gives Christians this good news: “Yet amid all these things we are more than conquerors and gain a surpassing victory through Him who loved us.” ‘More than conquerors’ means that before trouble even starts, we already know who wins and the benefits are going to be great.
Face your weariness by being surrounded by brothers and sisters whom you can share life with and to share mutual encouragement with openness. Hebrews 10:25 exhort us to do that. We can be strengthened by prayers and the power of His promises that is found in His Word. Intimacy with God produces strong Christians who can outlast the devil!
Live your life totally confident in God’s strength and have no fear of the trials that can produce weary warriors and fainting saints. Isaiah 40:31 promises- “But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
