Why We Shouldn’t Be Discouraged
Have you ever been discouraged? Felt like everything you did or tried to do failed so you might as well give up?
Or maybe you feel like you’ve worked and worked and just never get anywhere. Everyone else seems to find advancement, promotion, success in general, and you just seem to find more work.
Yeah. Me too.
And sometimes I get discouraged. I forget why I do the things I do. I think about quitting it all. Stopping. Right in my tracks.
It won’t matter. My tracks aren’t leading anywhere anyway.
God will not forget the work and love I have shown in His name toward his saints. Regardless of the reward I see here and now, God has not forgotten or overlooked my efforts.
I should not give up hope until He calls me home. He has a plan to use me, and He will not forget what I’ve accomplished towards that plan. I should not grow tired or lazy, but should persevere through faith and patience towards His promises.
The world may not recognize nor reward my efforts. Is it really the world’s recognition I’m after?
No, it’s God’s approval I’m after. Not this world’s.
Friends, God is not slack in keeping His promises. He will not forget what we have done for Him.
Be encouraged! God will not forget you!
