PROMISE #22 ~ REAPING A HARVEST
This life we live.
Sometimes, the weight on our shoulders feels enough to crush us through the very earth on which we stand. We can barely hold our shaking legs upright.
Sometimes, we feel as though no one notices the hole crumbling deeper and deeper beneath our weight.
Sometimes, our knees give way and we fall crashing to the ground.
Sometimes, the weight on our shoulders is suddenly eased through the hands of one standing beside us.
Sometimes, just a finger’s touch on the heart, a word gently spoken, is enough to ease the weariness in our lives.
He told us it would be hard.
Some days are going to be hard.
He tells us this will happen.
He has a plan. He has a promise. We have a part in this.
He spells it out for us…
Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)
Now the thing about this is… that while we carry each other’s burdens…
He carries us.
PROMISE #22 ~ God promises us that we will reap a harvest if we do good and do not give up.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
