“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9).
The harvest comes to those who do not give up. There is nothing easy about the harvest, whether it is physical or spiritual. We need to encourage one another not to become weary in doing good. The harvest is coming!
“Then another angel came out of the temple and called in a loud voice to him who was sitting on the cloud, ‘Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe.’ So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested” (Revelation 14:15–16). The ultimate harvest is coming. Jesus is coming for His own. I believe the great harvest is beginning. People from every tribe and tongue and nation are hearing and responding to the good news in our day. It is not a day for drawing back or sleeping.
Father, help me not to grow weary in doing good. Give me a heart filled with a passionate love for Jesus, and a deep longing for a great harvest of souls to lay at Christ’s feet at His appearing.

Read Ps. 73:23-26 and give praise to the one who holds you every day by your right hand. Thank God for guiding you by his wise counsel. Confess any time you have desired some earthly trinket more than the riches of your heavenly Father. Commit yourself to staying close to God today. Ask God to be “the strength of [your] heart and [your] portion forever.”
Pray for any unsaved friends or relatives by name. Ask that they will embrace the peace that comes with having God hold them by the hand.
