Don’t Grow Weary

impatient

Galatians 6:9
And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due
time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.

Just a couple of verses before this we’re reminded we reap
whatever we plant. What do you think that applies to? Does the Lord limit
Himself? Hardly! Will we sow kindness and harvest a crop of hatefulness?
Or joy and receive sadness in return? God’s kingdom dynamics don’t work
that way.

But sometimes it takes longer than we expect before the crop
ripens. When that happens it’s easy to lose heart. Do you get tired of
constantly trying to please someone when he’s never satisfied and you
don’t see anything good come from your efforts? That’s when it helps to
remember that our timetable isn’t God’s and He never said everything will
work out immediately.

Instead, He encourages us not to grow weary and concede defeat. I
think God wants us to do what pleases Him just because we love Him.
When we persevere, even though we can’t see the end result, we can
almost hear Him say, “Well done, My faithful servant.”

Father, when I grow weary,
strengthen me.
When my heart fails,
renew me,
that I may see Your glory.
