And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.Galatians 6:9 NKJV
The life of faith is not a walk in the park on a sunny day. Sometimes it’s quite challenging. In addition, life in the work-a-day world brings its own stresses and difficulties. In some cases, we may struggle with personal moral failure, repeatedly succumbing to the same temptation. We’re tired of failing. Condemnation begets doubt and we turn loose of the promise. Sometimes, we’re faced with overwhelming need in the lives of those we love. We’re weary of seeing them suffer, yet our efforts to help seem to fall flat. We exhaust our own resources pouring into their lives. Other times, we have ministry responsibilities and expectations that push us past our limits. We’re tired of feeling inadequate, but we faithfully drag ourselves ahead until we’re ready to drop. Whatever the cause, we all get tired. When that happens, God still wants us healed, and He has provided a way for us to get help. Today’s lesson discusses God’s answer for the weary believer.
