Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Galatians 6:9 NIV
Sometimes we feel like giving up when there’s work to be done. We become overwhelmed by hectic routines. But God knows our frailties. He reminds us we mustn’t stress about doing our best. He gives wisdom to remember His mercies are new each and every morning. He fulfills His promises as we remain faithful.
It’s hard to deal with stress. But in the midst of chaos, God knows how to reach us. He allows us to witness the power of His love! He helps us welcome perfect PEACE. And in time of need, He strengthens us. He bandages wounds of weakness and cradles us in care. He reminds us why we must wake in trust.
As we rise in opportunity, God leads us by His greatness. But often thoughts of chaos rob our morning joy. We forget to focus on what is good and need to remember God has a plan. We think about our struggles and forget to welcome peace. And sadly, we don't begin the day with Jesus.
We will never be without worry in our lives. But Christ will show us how to handle it. He will give courage and strength to endure. He will lead us to the Father and prepare us to work for Him. The Bible says, “whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.” Colossians 3:23-24
God will provide opportunities to be successful and keep on going... We must totally TRUST. God is powerful! He will help us overcome and find the way to make us strong. He will transform us. And in the timing of His will, He will forever change our lives. He will take away our burdens and show us how it feels to be grateful.
God WILL orchestrate our days. There will never be a moment without His presence in our lives. We must choose to embrace what He provides. He will prepare us to do amazing things! We mustn’t say, “ONE DAY I will choose to step ahead.” TODAY is the DAY to welcome better things to come! God knows where we’re going. If we open our hearts for peace to prevail, He will show us how to serve Him with a grateful heart. JOY will return and we will recognize what's been missing. We must let God do His work in us. And we must work hard to remain faithful.
Dear God, thank you for waking us in Your presence. You are mighty, holy and true! Forgive us when weary thoughts slow our steps and make us feel worried and stressed. We will trust in You and prayerfully surrender our doubt. Thank you for preparing us to do Your will. You have created us to do amazing things. This is the day YOU have made. We will rejoice and be glad! Help us find peace in the power of Your plan. Our hearts are ready to welcome abundant JOY that only comes from YOU. Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Amen
