Keep It Going
“Keep It Going” By Zach Wood Galatians 6:9-10
When I read this passage on my YouVersion Bible app
yesterday morning, it really hit home with me.I don’t think there is any one of us who has not been affected by what
this passage talks about.We try to be
consistent in our efforts to do our best to be good and Godly servants to
others.I think most of us would nod and
agree there.However, it can become
frustrating and discouraging, after a period of time, when things don’t seem to
change or progress at all in our opportunities of trying to help others and do
good things to improve the life around us.
Being consistent can be very hard, especially when you feel
worn out from doing good and you don’t see any progress.This is our human perspective and thinking.In these times, which most of us regularly
have, we must put our faith in God and leave these situations in His hands and
trust that He is working, even when we cannot see.Paul says here that at the proper time we
will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
When we feel like giving up, it’s those times that we really
must put our trust and faith in God and be strengthened through Him to continue
on.Our perspective is so limited, but
He sees the whole picture.Let us not
become weary in doing good.
