MEMORY VERSE: and let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.Galatians 6:9
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Acts 24-26
In Brother Paul’s epistle to the brethren in Galatians, he wrote this: “and let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall we reap, if we faint not” (Galatians 6:9). I want you to know that it is possible for one to become weary in well doing or get tired of doing what is good. Friend, are you beginning to get tired of doing what is good or you are tired already of doing what is good? Are you beginning to consider sex before marriage and ask for forgiveness after because most of your friends who indulge in it are all married with children? I want to encourage you in the Lord, do not get tired of doing what is good i.e. saying no to sex before marriage. Are you considering fraud because your friends who do it have three to four houses and drive nice cars? Just as Paul encouraged the believers in Galatians, i want to encourage you too, please do not get tired of doing what is good. Have you , a born again sister, joined the group of ‘big girls’ who date sugar daddies because your room mates have the latest gadgets, they are hardly in school yet they never fail? Please repent immediately. Do not get tired of doing what is good.
The reason why you must not stop doing what is good is because, every good thing you do is a seed sown. Every time you say no to sex before marriage, you are sowing a seed. Every time you witness to that family member of yours that is yet to give his or her to Christ, you are sowing a good seed. Every time you intercede for that family friend, you are sowing a seed. Every time someone tries to provoke you and you refuse to get angry, you are sowing a seed. Every time you put the work of God first, before your personal business, you are sowing a seed. Every time you refuse to compromise whether at work or in business, you are sowing a seed. In due season, you will harvest a big testimony/breakthrough/ open door, if you do not give up doing what is good. While other young men relished the king’s meat, Daniel and co decided to say no. While everyone enjoyed the meat offered to idols, Daniel and his friends vowed that they would not touch any unclean meat (Daniel 1). They kept on sowing that good seed daily, at the end Daniel became third in command to the king and his friends became governors (Daniel 6). Mrs Potiphar kept on offering Joseph a nice time and he kept on turning it down (Genesis 39). Every time she said, “Joseph dear, what about what we discussed,” he will sow a good seed by saying “i cannot do this terrible thing and offend God.” Few years later, he became the prime minister (Genesis 41). Friend, are you under serious pressure to give up doing what is good? Are you under pressure to compromise? Harvest is coming very soon, God is about to reward you for not compromising in that place of work. Your long awaited husband is just around the corner; do not fornicate with that boy who is promising to take you to his parents once he knows you carnally. The pressure to give up is at its highest, moments before breakthrough. The pressure to stop interceding for that family member is always at its highest, when the Lord is about to answer your prayers over them.
NOTE: The pressure to stop witnessing to a difficult fellow is at its highest, when the Lord is about to convict the heart of the fellow. Do not give up today because you are very close to a breakthrough.
