And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. – Gal. 6:9
When our progress appears stagnant, we question ourselves, our faith gets tested, and we seek patience and perseverance. Our progress is always in process as we will to do God’s will. The proceedings between any signs of progress vary for each one of us and can be unknown. Knowing this helps us stay on course and stand by faith.
We might think we have completed all that is necessary to reach a destination and then find we have yet another step. The perception of our beginning might not be accurate. The exact starting point is important in assessing the direction we are taking to a finishing point. Our progress becomes clear as we look at where we have come from, not at the place we have not yet reached.
In the Lord, each phase is an achievement. We are ready in and out of season. Every development we encounter draws us closer to Christ, our target. We never assume we have already arrived. Humbly, we trust the Lord’s leading moment by moment. We learn to enjoy the journey with peace, truly, from glory to glory!
