Keep On Keeping On

"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 6:9-10, NIV

Is God's promise of reward enough for us to keep on keeping on? In light of our human frailty, the answer is no

We must look beyond the promise. The hope of God's promise serves as our motivation, but the Promiser is the only way to persevere. Christ gives strength to the weary and enables us to reap the harvest of well-doing. 

The promise is never enough, 
but the Promiser is always more than enough. 

When the lives of Joseph's family members hung in the balance (Genesis 45), he was able to provide for them. Since he'd kept his eyes on the Promiser, his storehouse was full. 

Don't come up empty. Fix your eyes on Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith, and claim the abundant harvest he has in store. 

In seedtime and harvest, God is faithful. Keep on keeping on as if your life and the lives of those around you depend on it...because they do!

Now it's your turn. What are some ways you fix your eyes on Jesus when the going gets tough?

I always welcome your comments.
