Spiritual fatigue is spiritual weakness caused by
attacks from Satan and his demons. The attacks interfere
with the Spirit of Human Life (נְשָׁמָה (neshamah),
Dan 10:17). The attacks begin in the head with darkness,
pressure, and loss of focus and proceed into the body.
Relaxed Mental Attitude (shalom) will be lost (Job 30:27),
followed by loss of Capacity for Life, physical weakness, and loss
of endurance. Elijah experienced it when he was running from
Jezebel and fell asleep exhausted under a broom tree (1 Ki 19:4,
5) (ref. Elijah).
1. Spiritual fatigue results from Satan's
power over a person. For any of a number of reasons the
person has fallen into Satan's Cosmic System.
2. The problem may begin with Divine Punishment, when God
turns the person over to Satan to administer the punishment as He
did with Job (Job 30:21-22). The punishment was so severe
that Job thought he was dying (Job 30:23).
3. The weak and sickly lack the power to resist the Cosmic
System and are vulnerable to spiritual fatigue.
4. There is usually no simple solution. Prayer does
not work; nor does Rebound (Job 30:20; 2 Cor 12:7, 8).
Satan has access to the person, and the suffering must be endured
until it is removed by the Grace of God (2 Cor 12:9).
a. Subjectivity leads to slavery.
b. Objective resistance leads to freedom
(Jas 4:7; 1 Pet 5:8, 9).
1. Spiritual fatigue results in all kinds of
temporal problems in the soul and body, including medical
infirmities (Job 30:30). God decides how much suffering
Satan is allowed to administer.

1. Paul experienced the problem with the
Thorn-in-the-Flesh demon. God told him the answer but left
him in suffering (ref.
2 Cor 12:9).
2. The answer is to continue to execute the Spiritual Life
and await the Grace of God.
3. The Grace of God is the only solution, and Grace is God's
decision. What God does not remove, He expects us to endure.
4. The Lord will remove spiritual fatigue if we wait for
Him. He will remove spiritual fatigue and send His Elect
Angels to give new strength and endurance (ref. Isa
But those who wait for the LORD will gain new
They will mount up with wings (pinions)
They will run and not be weary;
They will walk and not faint.
