Spiritual Exhaustion

by Berni Dymet

Gen. 3:17,18 And to the man he said, “Because you have listened to the voice of your wife, and have eaten of the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You shall not eat of it,’ cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life; thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you; and you shall eat the plants of the field.

When we’re tired, exhausted – all we tend to see is the human dimension. We’re working too hard, or there’s a relationship that’s causing us stress. Or money worries. But what if they’re only the symptoms of a much deeper spiritual malady.

Adam and Eve had a perfect existence; perfect work-life balance.  Everything was perfect until one day, they rejected God.  It wasn’t a big thing, just that one lousy apple.

But that’s when it all started to unravel. As God was dealing with Adam, this is what He said to him:

…cursed is the ground because of you; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life …

God wanted them to go in one direction, but they knew better. They did the exact opposite – and so, they spent the rest of their days pulling in the opposite direction to God. 

I mean imagine that – God’s pulling in one direction, and we’re pulling in the other. That’s got to be exhausting!
