Galatians 6:9 says, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Seems there are always fresh invitations to quit waiting on God! As Matthew Henry states, “We are all very apt to tire in duty, particularly in doing good. This we should carefully watch and guard against. Only to perseverance in well-doing is the reward promised.”
In Luke 9:22 Jesus said to take up your cross “daily.” I’ll be the first to admit that the cross can get heavy. However, we must remember that it is only the one who endures to the end who will be saved (Matthew 10:22).
If you are weary over your well doing today know that you are not alone. Put your hope in the Word of God. He sees the smallest expressions of faith and nothing we do for him is ever in vain (1 Cor. 15:58). Be patient. Be steadfast. Be immovable. His promise is that you will reap a beautiful harvest in due season!
“Even the tired horse, when he comes near home, mends pace: be good always, without weariness, but best at last; that the nearer thou comest to the end of thy days, the nearer thou mayest be to the end of thy hopes, the salvation of thy soul.” – Thomas Adams
