Elohei Ma’uzzi is The God of my Strength. God always knows what we need and oh how I needed to read about this name of God again this evening! People who know me well know I tend to take on too much, carry too much, internalize too much. I don’t ask for help, I just press forward trying to do it all on my own and often overwhelm myself in the process. This spills over to every single area of my life. I just want to help everyone, do everything to the best of my ability, please everyone. Often what happens is I deplete myself. Late this afternoon I felt my face begin to tingle. It was kind of a mixture of pins and needles and numbness. Yet, I pressed. Then I felt that familiar pounding slowly begin behind my right eye. Almost relief as I realized it’s just a migraine. “Just” a migraine.
I laid down for a bit and got up to read for this blog. Tears now as I read about Elohei Ma’uzzi, The God of my STRENGTH. I don’t have to carry everything on our shoulders… you don’t have to carry everything on your shoulders. We don’t have to have it all figured out. We have a God that can carry it for us. We have a God who already has it all figured out. When we start to feel overwhelmed, when we start to feel we can’t handle it… it is at that very moment we need to stop and pray. I don’t care how busy we are, where we are. We need to allow Elohei Ma’uzzi to remove that burden from us. In Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus says, “28 Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.” Don’t take more on than you can physically, mentally, or emotionally handle. God is our strength, this name for him today is a reminder of that. Elohei Ma’uzzi, draw from His strength today. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
