If Satan cannot distract you with worldliness, he will overwhelm you with weariness. Indeed, how easy it is to wear ourselves out; even good works done without recharging ourselves in God can drain us of life and energy. Daniel speaks of a time at the end of the age when the enemy will attempt to “wear down the saints of the Highest One” (Dan. 7:25). God never intended for us to do His will without His presence. The power to accomplish God’s purpose comes from prayer and intimacy with Christ. It is here, closed in with God, where we find an ever-replenishing flow of spiritual virtue.

He will come to us like the rain, like the spring rain watering the earth. (Hos. 6:3) How does a person receive rain? Not by prying it loose from the sky but just by watching it fall, by standing in the downpour, by thanking Him for opening up the floodgates and sending what He knows we need and can’t get for ourselves, yet what He so faithfully, regularly, and graciously gives.

We may not be treading dusty roads to get to work or visit family and friends, but we do walk through some perilous times in life that may cause spiritual buildup. It is important that as we enter into the home of a friend or a house of worship, we take a moment to remove the dust of the day and settle into relationships to be found there. Rather than physically washing feet, we can help clear away the burdens that life often throws at us by uplifting one another.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

Our Lord Jesus is ever giving and does not for a solitary instant withdraw His hand. As long as there is a vessel of grace not yet full to the brim the oil shall not be stayed. He is a sun ever-shining; He is manna always falling round the camp; He is a rock in the desert ever sending out streams of life from His smitten side; the rain of His grace is always dropping; the river of His bounty is ever-flowing and the well-spring of His love is constantly overflowing.
