Are You Tired, Worn Out or Burned Out
Every product starts off as an idea in somebody’s mind, so true and so real that the dreamer could see his idea becoming a packaged product, with capabilities and functionalities that solves problems, provides answers to questions, generate a high demand from his community or city’s medium to enterprise stores; gathering so much momentum that it’s on most shop windows, nationally and internationally until it becomes a household name in the world’s global village. The dream to the dreamer is limitless in its reachability, so embarking on the journey after embracing the vision is exciting and every investment of time, effort, money, and life in engaging in the dreamed product is seen as a great opportunity for a profitable future return. He’s assured of having a viable outcome but needed others to be part of it so that all can partake of the solution, the answer and guaranteed end it provides. The product is packaged for all and not just for one.
The dreamer was sure of what’s in the package, he was yoked with the architect of the product, he does not just know the package but was sure of the viability of its content and was divinely enlightened by its offerings. So he was able to talk men through it, from the pulpit to the pew, the palace to the patch lands, he sold it freely, fearlessly, un-ashamedly; for he knows that embedded in the package is the divine power of God that gives all men all that is needed to have their needs met.
His commitment was unparalleled, his loyalty was irrevocable, He has found inside the package a durable treasure that worths giving his measureless pursuit, so he was deliberate in his actions, determined to risk all; he laid down the accolades, the name and the fame to pursue the only product that he knows is right. It was not assumed to be right but it’s been tested and proven and the quality assurance is eternally guaranteed. So in spite of countless beatings whether with rod or stripes, frequent unjust punishment and imprisonments, the shipwrecks and drowning in the sea without rescue for 24hours, resistance from friends and foes, the sleepless nights, not having enough to eat and drink many times or clothing to put on, he remained unperturbed; always ready to sell it freely to all for it’s a product for all ages, tribes, nation and denomination, but he is only sorrowful for those who reject the package and unable to access the treasured promises that is available for all; that could fix all problems and concerns of all types and for those who have once received the free package but never unwrapped it to access the product simply because they have yoked themselves with cunning men with crafty ideologies who have chosen rather to believe in a lie; who assumed they know what they do not, having embraced the pleasure of the moment at the expense of true life and eternal gain.
Apostle Paul remains focused on delivering the package of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ with the entirety of the product on the offerings and the many promises to be partaken of by all. For he has teamed up with the Master Architect and the strength of his knowledge of Christ made him perfect in his weakness, instead of being worn out or burnt out, he sailed on the faith of the son of God who loves us and gave himself for us. For whoever is united with the Lord is one with Him in Spirit. (Rom 1:13-20, Gal 2:19-20, 1 Cor 6:17, Psa 33:4)
Beloved, what and whom have you yoked yourself with?
For many yoked themselves with what and whom they assumed they know but their knowledge of what they thought they knew, whom and who they supposed to know remains only a presumption that does not guarantee any desired outcome of their effort and investment; until their partnership passes the quality test of time in time and progresses from assumption to assured partnership for a product that is capable of delivering a viable outcome or a disappointing result to be partaken of.
What result have you seen or have obtained or thinking you might have?
if you are tired or discouraged or feel like throwing in the towel, don’t give up. Here is the free offering of a robust package of life with promises that delivers solutions and answers for all seasons; It’s all in the Book of life; God’s letter to you, written by the finger of God especially for you and I, embedded in it, is the good news that provides remedy for Weariness. It counts for the life that now is and the one to come. It’s called the BIBLE, so you can disentangle from the loads of the many unproven assumptions and pursue the timeless truth of God’s word that walks you through life without falling and failing but qualify us for a far more exceeding eternal weight of glory (John 6:63, 1 Pet 5:10-11)
- “For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting. [2 Cor 4:17-18 AMP]
- “Don’t be teamed with those who do not love the Lord, for what do the people of God have in common with the people of sin? How can light live with darkness? And what harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a Christian be a partner with one who doesn’t believe? And what union can there be between God’s temple and idols? For you are God’s temple, the home of the living God, and God has said of you, “I will live in them and walk among them, and I will be their God and they shall be my people.” That is why the Lord has said, “Leave them; separate yourselves from them; don’t touch their filthy things, and I will welcome you and be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters.” [2 Cor 6:14-18 TLB]
- “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep Company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” [Mat 11:28-30 MSG]
- “The Lord replies, “I will arise and defend the oppressed, the poor, the needy. I will rescue them as they have longed for me to do. The Lord’s promise is sure. He speaks no careless word; all he says is purest truth, like silver seven times refined. O Lord, we know that you will forever preserve your own from the reach of evil men, although they prowl on every side and vileness is praised throughout the land” (Psa 12:5-8 TLB).
