Keep On Keeping On
GALATIANS 6:9 NLT 9 So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.
The best advice for being a growing and successful Christian believer is just to stick with it. Just keep on doing what you know to do.
More than anything, keep feeding on God's Word. The Word is what has the power to change things in your life. It is the power that drives the whole Kingdom of God.
MARK 4:26-28 NLT 26 Jesus also said, "The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. 27 Night and day, while he's asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. 28 The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens.
Jesus explained in Mark 4:14 that God's Word is the seed. So God's Word will bring forth God's will in your life if you will just plant it in your heart and protect it until it produces a harvest.
Don't worry if it seems like your progress is slow. Just keep on the right road and you will reach your proper destination. You can't feel a tree growing by putting your arms around it either, but day by day it surely grows stronger and stronger.
And don't quit just because you messed up and made some mistakes. Receive your forgiveness and go forward. Just because the devil tripped you up does not mean you should stay down.
So, keep reading the Bible. Keep on talking to God about everything. Keep on being thankful. Keep on praising God. Keep on walking in love. Keep on trusting God even when you don't understand what is going on.
God understands -- even when you don't. And you can be certain of His never-failing love for you. So, trust God and keep on walking in faith and love. Keep on doing what you know is right.
SAY THIS: I will not quit but will keep on walking with God.
