Harvest Pt. 3
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up!” Galatians 6:9
Have you ever felt really tired-the kind of “dog-tired” you feel at the end of a long day when you’re so exhausted that you fall asleep before your head hits the pillow? Maybe you’re feeling the kind of “weary” that has worn you out over days, months, or even years, and you’ve started to lose hope. Burning the candle at both ends eventually leads to burnout! Whatever your situation, we all experience feeling overwhelmed at times and wonder just how much more we can take.
We often grow weary when we feel like we’ve been working hard but seeing very little results. Perhaps you’ve been praying about something for years but seeing little fruit, if any at all. That’s when we become impatient with God’s timing. There are two things we often don’t recognize when we are weary: God’s promises and God’s perspective.
Paul reminds us, “Don’t quit! God promises that we will reap a harvest if we don’t give up!”
The key to not growing weary today is to take a moment and pray that you will see things from HIS perspective. Look at how many blessings God has given you already! Just continue to sow faithfully and wait patiently because God promised that your harvest is coming!
