Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.”
God has always been intentional. HE does things to drive a point, hit the bull’s eye, strike for a purpose. The good news is, all HIS intentions are pure and impeccable, even when things don’t seem to make sense. He is not asking for our understanding, He is asking for a heart who is fully surrendered to Him, with unwavering trust, immovable faith, and a steadfast love no matter what the cost.
I believe God inspired Paul to write Galatians 6:9 to validate that at some points, we will reach our lowest weariness or feel like losing our heart in the process. He wrote to acknowledge that at certain times, we will feel our nothingness and things are just so much hard to bear. He recognized that we have our own limitations. Yet, it is also a message to assure us that GOD knows, God feels and the best part is, God rewards.
Do not lose heart to be a blessing. Our weak feet may falter but His grace is steady. Walk in His grace and just take another step… and another step.. and another step… In our limitations we would know that God is unlimited, boundless and eternal.
Be still even when you have all the reasons to faint. Be still even when all things are choking you. Be still even at the brink of your breaking. Be still. Be still. Be still. And again, be still.
Psalms 46:10 “Be still, and know that I am God…”
