Galatians 4:9

“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” (KJV)


“And let us not be weary (ekkakeo/egkakeo: faint, utterly spiritless, wearied out, exhausted) in well (kalos: good, better, honest, beautiful, handsome, excellent, eminent, choice, surpassing, precious, useful, suitable, commendable, admirable) doing: for in due (idios: pertaining to one's self, one's own) season (kairos: time, opportunity, measure of time, fixed and definite time, opportune or seasonable time, the right time) we shall reap (therizo: harvest), if we faint (ekluo: loose, unloose, dissolve, weaken, relax, exhaust, enfeebled through exhaustion, grow weak, grow weary, become faint hearted) not.”


Let us not be wearied out in excellent doing, for we shall reap a harvest in our own personal season, if we don’t grow weary and exhausted.


Whose strength are you operating in today? Attempting to walk as a follower of Christ within your own power and efforts is futile. Today I challenge you to rest in the power of Jesus that is within you. Everyone’s seasons of harvest are at different times and places – knowing this, do not allow yourself to grow weak and weary. May we be a people that press on and never allow the excellent and admirable things of God to grow old.
