I’m Not a Quitter

Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:7-9 NKJV

This morning I want to focus on verse 9 in what I like to call the ‘And’ verse. Paul is telling the church at Galatia a whole lot of good stuff, but the meaning is this, regardless of what others choose to do, you do what is right and keep doing it. Don’t be discouraged or downhearted when you see the wicked keep doing wickedness and seem to live prosperous and content. We have something they do not….peace. And the knowledge that if we continue doing right, we will reap a harvest, whether it’s tough going or not.

It’s easy for your faith to wane and not realize it. How so? Let me try to explain and maybe you’ll understand.

I went to the beach with my friends a couple weeks ago. The waves were huge! I thought how fun! I love huge waves. Jumping over them and having them bump into you and over your head. We were laughing and having a good time. Suddenly I felt exhausted. I didn’t realize how tired I was until I got back to the beach and sat down in my chair. My legs almost gave out.

Life can be that way sometimes. When you’re currently beaten on every side and you don’t realize how tired you are. You just keep going because you have to. There’s no one else to take over for you. God sends people to encourage you, but you do it because you must.

You don’t realize how tired you are until the end of one battle comes with another right on its tail. But you have to stay up because there’s no one else to fight it. You don’t even have time to call your prayer team cause decisions have to be made in the moment.

Spouse, children, finances, property and it repeats in various forms until you want to curl into a ball and roll away. Hey, I’m not a quitter, but lately, it’s been super tempting. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. In fact many people I personally know have been under similar circumstances.

Plant your seed of faith in the fertilizer of your circumstances and pray for rain. Don’t give up on your promises just because it’s been a longer season than normal. You will reap your harvest if you don’t give up.

I pray for you today that strength burst forth into your seed. I pray that you be lifted up in your faith. I asked that the heavenly father give you a sign in your season that your Harvest is on the way. It’s in Jesus name and for his glory I pray. Amen
