Don't Give Up

Don't Give Up

15 March 2009


9 So don’t get tired of doing what is good. Don’t get discouraged and give up, for we will reap a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. 10 Whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to our Christian brothers and sisters. (Galatians 6:9-10 NLT)

Observation and Application:

Paul worked hard, sacrificed much, and suffered in many ways to keep the message of God’s Good News pure and simple. There were so many people who resisted and opposed him – for such a variety of reasons – that it must have been really hard not to just get discouraged and give up. I don’t know who encouraged him when he was at his lowest point, but I know he has encouraged me a lot of times through the years.

God has used these two verses over and over again to encourage me and to remind me that there will be a harvest of blessing at the appropriate time. I believe God. I believe God’s Word.


Father, I believe your Word. I receive your encouraging reminder. I won’t give up and I won't give in.  I will use the opportunities you give to do good to others. Amen.
