Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9 (NIV)
In this part of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church of Galatia, he is encouraging them to stay focused on what is right in a time where they were falling away and beginning to stray away from the Gospel. Paul is reminding them that they have the opportunity to do better (verse 10). He is reminding them that by faith, they have the opportunity to keep pursuing what is right, despite the temptation and pressure to turn away. When it comes to that goal to start that new career, move to that new city, or to start your business, recognize that you have the opportunity right now to keep on doing good and not grow weary. You have the opportunity to stay focused on the things of God, plant seeds, and watch them grow.They may not grow at the pace you want them to grow, but be thankful for the seeds that God has given you, because they WILL grow. The harvest will come in the proper time that is according to His purpose. So don’t stop making the Lord your top priority, talking to Him and reading His word daily. Don’t stop making improvements and refining the skills God has given you, not to get attention of others but to bring glory to Him. God WILL honor your faithfulness. Keep on sowing seeds and do not give up because things seem to be slowing down for you. Do not slack off. God has more in store and it is important that you live your daily life with this kind of mindset. Be thankful for where God has you and what He’s showing you, knowing that everything will grow in due season, according to HIS plan!
