Seasonal Blessings

(Galatians 6:9) “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

As a boy I was told by my elders, “the older you get the faster time will go.” Such a statement did not make any sense at all. How could time speed up? Sixty seconds was still one minute no matter how young or how old you are. Somewhere along the way our lives fill up with so many things that must be done that the day really does seem to get shorter. The demands of daily life can make our heads spin. I have prayed, “Lord, would you be pleased to add a couple more hours to the day?” Obviously, that is not going to happen, but the Lord can give encouragement and fulfillment to our labor.

The Apostle Paul’s words before us today were written to the believers of the churches of Galatia to encourage them as they served Christ with the promise  that God will add His blessing along the way. The word “weary” in the verse has the idea of becoming exhausted or to lose heart. Praise the Lord we need not lose heart, God will grant a harvest of blessing if we continue for Him. There is a season (a time) to plant. There is a season to cultivate and tend to the crop. And, at the right season there is a time of harvest. The harvest is the reward for the labor that has been expended during the seasons before.

Dear believer, remember the seasonal blessings that the Lord has promised and will give if we faint not.
