Are you tired of life, as a Christian?

Are you weary?

One of the devil’s greatest goals against Christians is to make us weary. If he can wear us out, then he can get us to make choices based on FEAR or SIN, rather than in trusting God and continuing to do things His way.

When things get extremely difficult, Satan wants you to say, “This Christian stuff doesn’t work, I’m just gonna ____________ (choose a fear or a sin) because I don’t see God doing anything.” The devil wants to destroy you mentally, physically, socially, economically, and spiritually by trying to convince you that you should not do what God wants you to do… Little by little, he wants to wear you out.

BUT WE ARE NOT WITHOUT HOPE!

The Bible says that “we are more than conquers through Him who loved us!” (Romans 8:37). It also says “Do not become weary in doing good, because at the proper time you will reap a harvest if you don’t give up!” (Galatians 6:9).

IF WE DON’T GIVE UP!

My friend, please, don’t give up on Jesus. Good results will come, but the most important result you can ever get from doing things God’s way is learning how to trust Him. After your trust in Him is built, then the results will happen in your life–I’m talking major changes….IN YOU…in your soul. God is not so much worried about immediately changing your circumstances, as He is in changing your heart into Christ’s image.

When this change in you happens, then you will have true joy, then you will have true peace, then you have true confidence–no matter what is happening in your life. And it’s all because of you becoming more and more like Jesus, each and every day. After that, it’s nearly impossible to become weary.

I know it may hurt really bad right now, and you might not see how it could get any better, but it will. God withholds no good thing from those who walk upright! (Psalm 84:11) So keep doing what God is asking you to do! He sees your effort! He sees your struggle! He sees what you are doing for Jesus!…And He sees your efforts to become like Jesus.

Your time is coming. God is always on time, never early, but never late. So we wait patiently and learn to trust Him. It may take days, weeks, months, years, or even decades of faithfulness to Him, but, He’ll never overlook your trust in Him. So always, always remember that He loves you, very much. For proof of this, look no further than the Cross.

-Matt
