How often do you say, "I'm tired"

If you are like me, then you probably say it a lot. I think there are several factors that play into this: I don't exercise like I should, I don't eat the right food, and I don't have a regular sleep pattern. I sometimes pray, "God give me the energy to get through this day." I often wonder if I should really pray that since I am not taking any steps to be disciplined in my physical habits to improve my energy levels. In some sense I am humbling myself before God and admitting that He is the only way I am going to have the energy to get through the day but I still feel like I should back up my words. I think that I don't deserve for God to sustain me through the day if I don't take any action. But then I am reminded of God's grace. Its true that I don't deserve it, in fact no one does and that is the beauty of God's grace. Even if I did eat right, exercise, or had a regular sleep pattern there is no reason why I should have good energy levels, its all in God's hands.

After a quick biblegateway.com search for rest, I found this passage in Exodus 33 to be interesting...

13 If you are pleased with me, teach me your ways so I may know you and continue to find favor with you. Remember that this nation is your people."

14 The LORD replied, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest."

I find it interesting because Moses is wanting to learn His ways and continue to find FAVOR with the LORD. That FAVOR, I'm pretty sure, is the same thing as GRACE. So for Moses to know God and experience His grace, God is going to go with him and give him REST.

Now I do think we should do things like eat right, exercise, and have a regular sleep pattern but whether we do or not we should focus on Gods grace. When we are tired we should rely on God's grace. When we are well rested we should thank God for His grace.
