Do Not Give Up

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9)

Are you feeling “weary” these days? Do you ever feel as if “doing good” really gets you nowhere? I bet that if we were honest, most of us would admit to these feelings or thoughts at some points in our Christian life. If you spend much time at all reading Paul’s letters in the New Testament, you hear him telling us to persevere, to run the race with endurance, and to not lose heart. The Apostle Paul understood the trials of suffering and how hard it can be just to keep going, day in and day out. Today’s verse has a promise at the end, one that we can all claim in victory. If we do not grow weary and give up, there will be a time of reaping, a season of harvest.

The enemy will use every scheme he can against us to discourage us from moving forward. I wonder how many times we give up at the last minute. What would happen if we never gave up? When the Lord calls you to step out, you must go. Once you make that decision, you will be tested. You will be tempted to quit, especially in your thoughts. To combat the temptations to quit, we must stay in the Word of God to renew our minds and to surrender to His will over our natural-born desires. Through the Holy Spirit, we can overcome and live a life pleasing to God. Praise God, for He wants for you to overcome and live a life pleasing Him.

God is leading you, you must follow Him, step by step. Know that there will be times when you will feel weary and your heart wants to sink, but that is when you turn to the Lord for strength and encouragement. Do not give up! The victory may be a day away.

When I read this I was blessed by this devotion today, the victory may be a day away, wow, what truth!! It’s okay to admit weariness and discouragement, it’s what we do after that makes the difference. We must persevere, run the race with endurance, and not lose heart. Don’t allow the enemy to plant seeds of doubt in your mind, read your word and pray every day, stay close to God and watch His plan unfold in your life. In His time you will reap the harvest. Don’t give up on God, He has never given up on you. He loves you so much He sent His son to die for you. What love!! Be not weary, do not give up. 

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
