Are you drained and tired, from the circumstances you’re facing today? Do you feel like you’re about ready to give up? In Galatians 6:9, we read…“And let us not get tired of doing what is right, for after a while we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t get discouraged and give up.”
This morning…after getting up, I was sitting on my daybed in the office, as I was beginning to check emails and prepare for another new day. As I was sitting there, in the quiet moments of my morning, I was experiencing a few moments of discouragement…just like we all face from time to time and as I began to seek God’s word for the answers; He led me directly to this verse in Galatians 6:9. As I started to focus deeply, on each word in this verse; God was reminding me that when we aim to do the right thing in life, we are always going to face the opposition.
You know…there may be times, when a day seems to take us down a smooth path, while the sun shines brightly and the fragrance of God’s presence is felt everywhere; but then there may be days, when we just can’t seem to get over the humps and bumps of life. It seems that with each step we take, the road becomes even more difficult to walk down, while darkness continues to surround us.
One thing we need to always remember and that is to talk to God during these difficult times and ask Him for His strength; that we may not grow tired of these moments…to the place where we find ourselves on the verge of giving up. I have come to see that when the battles become the fiercest; that is when a blessing is just around the corner, as it is Satan’s intention to stop the blessing that God has awaiting us.
If we ever want to discover the help and hope that God can only offer us, during these difficult times; then we must continue to walk down the road that leads us in the direction, of where we can truly find God’s best. Even though the moments can seem dark and dismal, with weeds of circumstance surrounding us along life’s path; we can find the strength we need through God, when we choose to walk away from the thoughts that attempt to lead us in another direction…a direction whose only aim is to keep us in a place of darkness.
