Are you spiritually tired?
Many Christians have a deep desire to "turn the corner" in their walk with Jesus. Some dont know where to start, others are held back by the past, and still others are blinded or calloused by sin.
King David, the man after Gods own heart, experienced this very thing, and in Worn Out by Obedience he is presented as a spiritual mentor. David is both flawed and on fire. He is the person we are and the person we want to be. In studying his extended stay in Ziklag (1 Samuel 2730), readers will see how God often molds our hearts in seasons of brokenness, loneliness, and disappointmentsometimes even in our disobedience.
If you are spiritually weary, discouraged, or exhausted, Worn Out by Obedience will help you to keep goingor start moving. Youll learn the signs of spiritual fatigue and how to avoid them. Youll see that God uses all our experiencesgood and badto form Christ in us. And youll remember Gods great grace of rescue, recovery, and restoration.
Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: Female3 Stars Out Of 5For church leaders who juggle too many expectationsJanuary 29, 2018Deuce SkunksSpringfield, MOAge: 25-34Gender: FemaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3Worn Out By Obedience: Recovering From Spiritual Fatigue by Ron Moore is primarily focused toward church leaders and members who have hit a burn out from trying to juggle too many things for too long - without fully relying on God to take the load and let them relax.
Ron likens this burn out to David entering Ziklag and explains that many of us have willingly ventured into Ziklag, at one point or another, by deciding that somehow our dreams and our activities can bring us happiness and fulfillment without the need of God being in charge.
Most of the book is personal testimonies combined with clips of David's story, showing us what this trip to Ziklag often looks and feels like - and how we can break free of it and return to God's path for our lives. Each chapter concludes with reflection questions to help you discover if you have ventured in Ziklag at some point, and how you can redeem your walk with God.
While I found this book to be a sobering look at the dangers and pitfalls of following your own path and creating a distance between yourself and God, I had a hard time relating to it. Having spent years away from God and only recently returning to His loving embrace, I expected this book to be more personal to me - but it just didn't quite get there. 3/5 stars.
