If you have raced with men on foot and they have worn you out, how can you compete with the horses?
If you stumble in safe country, how will you manage in the thickets by the Jordan?
Though it may seem weird, this verse is a fountain of encouragement for those in ministry.
I am traveling a lot this week making a trip up to the ranch and back. Please pray for me as I drive. When I’m away from the rest of the family I find that I get a bit fatigued, both physically and emotionally. I am reminded of, and encouraged by, this passage from Jeremiah 12:5.
HT: to Eugene Peterson for giving one of his books this title. I may never have noticed it on my own.
