Reaping

Reaping

We can trust that our obedience to the Lord in even the smallest things brings forth glorious treasures at a later time. It is written in the Word of God that if we do not grow weary in well doing, in due time we reap the rewards. We do not do anything to receive something in return, and we do not lose heart, knowing that when the Lord leads us to sow, we will reap a harvest.

What we sow may be time, money or talents. It’s given with love, and with love unconditionally. It may not appear to be much, but it is, because it’s for the Lord. It may not appear to be appreciated, but it is, by the Lord. It may not measure up to how much we would like to give, but it’s multiplied, in the Lord. We give ourselves to the Lord and He gives through us. When our due season to reap is upon us, the enemy attempts to make us lose heart. In those moments the loving and giving heart of God, that dwells in our heart, is anointed to flow even more. Our reward is in Christ and all the blessings that come from Him.

When we obey the Lord, immediate results may not be seen, but we can trust His glory will be seen. We do not lose heart; we do not grow weary in well doing. Whatever He asks us to do, we delight in doing. We obey with love and patience–and without complaint. We know His glory will be seen, from glory to glory!

Galatians 6:9-10 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
