Do Not Give Up!

You might think that your life doesn't matter, but perhaps you’re building a foundation for generations to come (catching the Vision & seeing things from His perspective). “His ways are higher than our ways” (Isaiah 55:9).

The impact & influence of your life might be felt for years to come after your death, living on through the lives of your children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren. Nothing is mundane or pointless. All is important in God's eyes.

There might not always be an immediate blessing experience or witness because of your efforts. Sometimes you must wait for the long-term impact (leaving a godly legacy, having a multi-generational vision etc). Remember Galatians 6:9- "Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up..." And rememeber- "Only what's done for Christ will last."

Several months ago, in my Bible study class, we studied 2 Samuel 7, which speaks of God's covenant with David. It speaks of the Promised Savior dwelling on David's throne. Although this Promise wasn't fulfilled in David's lifetime, yet David still trusted and believed. 

He completes what He has begun and His Power is Sufficient to execute all that He desires. "And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." (Philippians 1:6)

 I am also reminded of the "Hall of Fame" in Hebrews 11, especially verse 13: "These all died in faith, not having received the things Promised, but having seen them and greeted them from afar, and having acknowledged that they were strangers and exiles on the earth..."

Hold on to the Promise, even when it's hard to believe at that moment, even when the Vision hasn't been fulfilled yet. Have unwavering Faith that He will bring His Promise to pass as He said. "So shall My Word be that goes out from My Mouth; it shall not return to Me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I Purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it." (Isaiah 55:11)

Continue to trust in His Salvation. Our hope is assured! It is all Worth it! Press on!

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,  fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith. " (Hebrews 12:1-3a)
