What Will I Do Today That Requires Faith?

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”

Bottom Line:
Never get tired of helping others. Your reward will come at the right time.

What this means to me:
I should not become tired or give up on doing good. A time will come when I’ll reap a harvest from it.

Failure is never final unless I quit because of it. A person’s greatness is not determined by his talent, his wealth, or his education. A person’s greatness is determined by what it takes to discourage him. What does it take to discourage me from going after my dream?

Today’s verse in 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” (NIV).

When I feel like giving up, God says, “Just keep on keeping on.”

What I’m learning is that 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 what am I doing in faith? I need to keep asking myself each day when you get up, “God, what can I do today that will require faith?” That’s an important question, because that’s what’s 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 I was born, where I was born, or what my race or nationality is. I didn’t control what gifts and talents I was given. I didn’t decide how I would look.

However I do have complete control over how much I choose to believe God. God uses 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’ll think about what things discourage and keep me from pursuing goals and how I think God wants me to respond to those circumstances?  Also what act of faith is God asking me to take today?
