Reasons To Never Give Up
In review of Galatians 6:9 it 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.”
Don’t become weary or tired of doing what is good, living the right way or helping others. At the right and proper time we will reap a harvest of blessing and everlasting life, If we do not give up.
What this means to me:
I am to never become weary or tired of doing what is good, living the right way or helping others. At the right and proper time I will reap a harvest of blessing and everlasting life, If I do not give up. Failure is never final. I’ll never be a failure until I quit and it’s always too soon to quit. Rick Warren explains that “You can’t determine a person’s greatest by his talent, wealth, or education. The Greatest is better determined by what it takes to discourage him.” So, I need to think what does it take to discourage me from going after a dream. Do I get discouraged because a friend, relative or family member tells me, “I don’t think that’s a good idea.” The Bible says in Galatians 6:9, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (NIV). God is telling me to “just keep on, keeping on.” God will work in my life according to my faith. The Bible says, “Without faith it’s impossible to please God” and “Whatsoever is not of faith is sin” and “According to your faith it will be done unto you.” So I need to consider what I’m doing in faith? I may want to consider adding the following question to my daily quiet time routine, “God, what can I do today that will require faith?” It’s an important question, because its the things that require my faith that are going to please God. There are a lot of things in my life that I don’t have control over. I didn’t control who my parents were, when and where I was born,, or what my race or nationality is. I didn’t control what gifts and talents I was given. And I didn’t decide how I look. But one I thing I do have complete control over is how much I choose to believe God. God will use people who expect him to act, who never give up, who take risks in faith, who get his dream and go after it. It’s my choice whether I want to be the kind of person God uses to accomplish his purpose. Today I will consider what act of faith God may be asking me to take today.
