Have you not heard?

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the weak, and to those who have no might He increases strength.  Even the youth shall faint and be weary, And the young man shall utterly fall, But those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength.   Isaiah 40: 28-31 (NKJV)

We can become tired and easily stress with the strains of life’s problems. We exhaust ourselves by forever wondering what the outcome will be and how and when will it be resolved.  One moment its good news and then before you know it you receive bad news. We are on an emotional roller coaster.

But this is a reminder to us that God is everlasting and a creator of all things. Our Father never faints nor does he get weary, like we do, with all of all life’s problems that we are constantly dealing with. His knowledge is infinite.  We cannot fix it with our limited  minds.  “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.” Isaiah 55:8

He understands the problem and He has the solution to it. We must be patient and wait on Him to fix it. We may feel weak and powerless, but God knows how to renew our strength through these weary time. Don’t give up! Continue to trust and wait on Him.

Sowing and Reaping

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

In the book of Galatians chapter six, Paul writes about sowing and reaping.   It is so important to sow good seeds so that we can benefit a great harvest in our reaping.  Just like a farmer when he goes out and tills the soil preparing to sow his seeds, he make sure he plants plenty of seeds into the ground. Why?  Because he is expecting a great abundance when it comes time for harvest.  One thing a farmer realizes that when he plants corn seeds, he does not expect to receive beans for his harvest.  What kind of seeds are we sowing in our lives today?   So why do we think when we sow seeds of bitterness, hatred, strife, anger, unforgiveness, or envy do we expect to receive a harvest of good in return?  What we sow is what we will reap.  That’s why we are admonished not to sow seeds of our flesh.  It’s so important to sow seeds of love, joy, peace, forgiveness and compassion.  Because when we sow these spiritual seeds, we will reap them in return.  We must not get tired of doing the right things even though we may not see the results of our actions immediately.  Don’t stop and don’t give up.  Continue in what is right because in due season we shall reap abundantly!
