Faint Not

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Gal. 6:9

I looked at this verse and for the longest time I thought it meant doing well for others, but as I look at it again, I see that it means doing well, as in walking as the Lord would have me walk. Speaking what the Lord would have me speak, allowing Him to work in me, and being led by the Spirit instead of the flesh. I don’t have to do works to have approval of men, because that is what I would reap, the approval of men and not of God. I believe He is telling me, that if I continue to grow and follow Him, “good works” would be the fruit of my labor. As in fruit of the Spirit. So I need to press in, and keep following Him and doing as He would have me do according to His word, and stay in it, keeping the faith, and growing in knowledge of His Will and what He wants then I shall reap, I will be able to have fruit, I will be able to show what work He is doing inside my heart, it will be apparent for all to see. I can’t allow myself to become discouraged or try to change myself, or think its just not worth it, but to believe that while the Holy Spirit is doing a work in the inside, the fruit of that labor, will be apparent on the outside. So don’t ever think that a trial or problem or some exposed sin is an excuse to give up, but think of it as an opportunity for the Lord to work in you, and don’t grow weary allowing Him to do so. I would say,, Faint Not!! He will pick you up and He will do the work in you and see you through if you just let Him, because in due season,, you will reap the benefits, by bearing fruit, that is plain to see. Stick around and let God clean the inside and strengthen you, because in more ways than one, you will see the rewards of your faith in God. This verse is a promise, Gods Word to you.
