Galatians 6:9 “And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.“ (NKJV)
On many occasions, a person won’t see an immediate reward for the present efforts that they are putting forth.
Once a person understands the principle of “seed time and harvest”, it will help them to remain focused and encouraged with their present efforts.
John 10:10 “The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” (NKJV)
Distraction can be a tool of the enemy to divert a believers attention away from a desired area of focus, and thereby blocking or diminishing a person’s efforts. There can be both external and internal distractions, that can contribute to the interference of remaining focused.
So a believer will have to remain persistent, refusing to give up or let go no matter what is happening, or what they are feeling at any given time.
Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.” (NKJV)
Having the right thoughts, can help a person to remain focused and persistent without becoming distracted.
1 Corinthians 10:31 “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” (NKJV)
Having the right attitude about what you are doing can help also. Our conduct and behavior should always honor God.
Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” (NKJV)
Again, having the right attitude along with giving thanks, is very important. God should get the glory in all that we say and or do.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”
Our priorities should be kingdom focused, being about our Father’s business.
“I will lift up my eyes to the hills—
From whence comes my help?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
Who made heaven and earth.” (NKJV)
Lord Jesus, help us to remain focused in our doing good so that You will get the praise, the glory and the honor, in Jesus name…Amen!
Continuing in His service…Rev
