Cutline – DETERMINATION
Determination is an important character in life. This is what keeps us going when we would rather give up. It helps us endure life’s storms and persevere through terrible circumstances. No one can get through life without having determination . And therefore living your life for the Lord requires determination.
It takes determination to serve the Lord but most of us are leaving this important work undone and give up. We live in a society which moves us to weariness, and this also applies to our walk with God: praying, helping that in need, doing good to God’s people is a night mare. So much has happened in our lives that we are discouraged, weakened physically and spiritually, we are growing weary day by day; most of us are in the situation of saying no more!
In Galatians 6:9 we learn this:Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
God has called us to well doing and not doing well; most of us are putting our efforts into doing well, but we are busy doing wrong things. We want what we want and we want it now . But God is not impressed with classic lifestyles. He is happy when we restore the fallen, when we share burdens when we share His love among ourselves. As children of God, we are not saved by good works, but the lives of those who are saved are expected to be characterized by good works. God promises a harvest, and it’s upon us to decide what the harvest will be, which will be determined by what we sow. So, let us not become weary in doing good, despite all challenges we come across,for we shall reap if we don’t lose heart and give up.
