“And let us not grow weary while doing good,
for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart,”
Some people just get tired of doing what is right, then give up. The devil is at work to bring us to this depressing place, where we just get tired of doing right and we quit. We grow weary while doing good.
We let people discourage us. We let circumstances defeat us. We let evil thoughts ruin us. We let the world lure us. We allow our own minds to be crowded with fear, suspicion and bitterness. We grow weary while doing good. Then quit.
In this passage – there are two things: Possibility and Promise. The possibility is – growing weary while doing good. The promise is – “for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” It is our dependence on the promise that can keep us from the possibility.
I need to be convinced – that “in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” If I use the Word of God to imbed that promise in my heart – it preserves me from the possibility of getting tried and giving up.
Let me put that another way. If we are wholeheartedly convinced the promise – “in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart,” that gives us the strength to keep doing good.
