Don’t Be Discouraged
Proverbs 28:20 says, “A faithful man shall abound with blessings.”
Abounding would imply that increase has taken place. But notice it didn’t take place overnight. It was the result of faithfulness and faithfulness takes time.
Let me define faithful for you. It means:
1) Sticking with God and His Word no matter what happens in your life
2) Being steadfast in your allegiance to God
3) Unwavering loyalty
4) A firm resistance to the temptation to give up, draw back, or to compromise.
God promises that if you will stick with Him and His Word, then you will abound with blessings.
God promises that if you will be steadfast in your allegiance to Him, then you will abound with blessings.
God promises that if you have unwavering loyalty to Him, then you will abound with blessings.
God promises that if you will develop a firm resistance to the temptation to give up, draw back, or compromise then you will abound with blessings.
Hebrews 10:39 says, “We are not of them who draw back.”
The Message Translation says, “We’re not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We’ll stay with it . . . trusting God all the way.”
I want to encourage you today, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see things happening in your life immediately, have faith that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf. Your due season will come. It will happen.
Galatians 6:9, “And let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” The key word there is “IF.”
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, “To every thing there is a season…”
According to God, there is an appointed time to reap the harvest. So don’t be discouraged. Your harvest time will come. Our part is to not become weary and quit.
Confession: “I will not grow weary in well doing. My harvest time is coming in Jesus name!”
