Don’t Get Discouraged, God Knows Your Faithfulness

In summary of Galatians 6:9 it says, "So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up."

Bottom line:
Don’t get tired of helping others. You will be rewarded when the time is right, if you don’t give up.

What this means to me:
I am to be careful about not getting tired of doing the right thing; what is good and helpful for others.  If I stick with it a time will come when God will reward me with a harvest of blessing in the future and into eternity.  Unfortunately there is a natural pull in me that makes me want to give up or throw in my hand if I’m not seeing immediate benefits, results or praise.  I need to remember that God sees every act of my faithfulness.  In fact he sees everything that I do that is good and right; he is the audience of my life.  So every time I choose not to sin, every time I resist temptation, every time I take a stand because of God’s Truth, he see my faithfulness to Him.  His word tells me that every good deed will be rewarded, no matter how insignificant and regardless of whether anybody else on earth sees it.   So when I get discouraged, I only need to remember that God sees it, and it doesn't matter who else does.  Nothing good I do is ever done in vain. God sees it all.  Today I will work on remembering that all I do in life if for Him and I want to please him with how I’m stewarding all that he has given me.
