Loving Father I thank You that I am Your child and I want to press on, in my Christian life, to become more and more like the Lord Jesus – but I know that it will require me to put my hand to the plow and press on with patient endurance – which only comes from You alone. I pray that I may not lose heart or grow weary in doing the good works that You have prepared for me to do, and pray that in due time, I may reap a fruitful reward, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
Maybe you need this word of encouragement today:
“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Do you feel this way about something in your life? You have seemingly been doing all the right things, with no visible results?
Today, I pray that you, nor me, will give up, but will reap the rewards in the proper time.
If we will serve with faithfulness, discipline, and integrity, God’s grace will empower us to do what he has called us to do. The wonderful blessing of God, however, is that he will renew us and sustain us and rekindle us.
Dear Heavenly Father, I am grateful for these lessons. it’s easy to become tired in giving, but I’m asking You to increase my desire and determination to be generous in all parts of my life. I pray that I may not lose heart or grow weary in doing the good works that You have prepared for me to do, and pray that in due time, I may reap a fruitful reward, Refresh me as I refresh others! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Invite God to pick up and handle what we are not able to handle. God actually encourages and commands us to shift to Him the weight and responsibility of our burdens! He promises to take care of them. And He always takes care of them better than we can!
Are you trying to pick up something that is too heavy for you? Are you carrying spiritual, emotional or relational baggage God never intended for you to carry? Give it up to Him! Trust Him! Experience the rest that comes when you do!
Dear Lord, thank You for seeing my need for rest and inviting me to learn from You. On my own I always seem to be looking for knowledge and approval elsewhere. In my heart I want to receive what You have to offer. Help me to stay focused on You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
