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 NIV)
Do you give up easily ?
Have you maybe become cynical about helping people, because the need is just so great ?
Has instant gratification caused you not to persevere ?
“In the world we live in, we are going to have all kinds of problems, frustrations and difficulties. That’s just life. So knowing this, what do we do?
We must remain steadfast and persevere. In other words, the answer is never give up! No matter what’s going on in our lives, the victory is in refusing to quit.
Keep in mind that in the heat of our struggles, the Holy Spirit is probably doing His greatest work within us. He is not moved by the circumstances. If you and I really trust Him, we shouldn’t be either! He’s not in our lives for good times only, but for the difficult times as well.” – Joyce Meyer
We need to fix our eyes on the prize if we are to persevere. Make it you passion (heart) and your actions will follow. I think we stop persevering because we do not pray through our emotions like Jesus did, wrestling through them. In the end it is to say “God your will not mine.”
