Don’t Give Up

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.”
Thomas A. Edison was the most prolific inventor in modern times—perhaps ever. He made scores of attempts to invent the light bulb.
After an unsuccessful effort, one of his associates said, “Well, you have failed again.
“No,” replied Edison, “I have succeeded again. I now know another way how not to invent a light bulb.”
After 10,000 attempts, Edison had every reason to be discouraged. However, he had the ability to turn what many saw as failure into fuel for success. God’s desire for you is to succeed and be fruitful in life. The Devil would have you to focus on the failure and measure success by world standards. This can be exhausting. Whether it is a ministry, a business, a college plan, being a teacher, or being a parent, be faithful in what you do. God reminds us that success will come, if we don’t lose heart. Sometimes to appreciate success, we may experience pressure or failure. Dwell on the blessing to come. In nature, as well as in our lives, there are different seasons. We have seasons to plow and seasons to reap blessing.
Remember it was “Jesus, for the joy that was set before Him, endured the Cross” (Hebrews 12:2). The joy Jesus had was in knowing He would soon be seeing victory over death and the blessing of lasting relationship with you. It’s a great privilege to do Gods work. Don’t grow weary. “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” (Philippians 4:13)
