“Minute with the Master" - Friday, August 17, 2018 - by Rev. Everett Kimble
Galatians 6:9, 10 – “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.” (NLT)
Today’s minute is for those of you who are out there doing the good work, and “fighting the good fight of faith” (1 Tim. 6:12, KJV). For you who are diligently studying the word and applying its principles in your daily walk. For those praying with and for people without them even knowing that you are praying for them. This is for the saints in the trenches every week making sure bible teaching happens in our churches and communities, and the ones working in the food pantries making sure that the less fortunate do not go hungry on their watch.
The word today goes out to those visiting the homeless, the hospitals and the help centers. For the believers loving on children and families all around you simply because they know that it is what God calls them to do. Stay Faithful!
With all that is going on in the world today I know it is becoming harder and harder to wade through the sludge and get to a place where you can see that your work is not in vain, but please let me remind you that your good work does not go unnoticed by God. He sees you, He knows what you are doing and even when it does not feel like it, He is with you.
Again Galatians 6:9, 10 prompts us; “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith.”
I know that the days can get long and tiresome, but here is my encouragement for you today. Don’t get weary in your well doing. Don’t give up, and don’t give in. Keep on being a blessing to others, and God will continue to bless and strengthen you. You might not see it now, but a great big dose of God glory is headed your way.
“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not get weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31, KJV)
Have a wonderful weekend!
