In Due Season
December 17, Wednesday
“And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Galatians 6:9 (KJV)
In the scripture above, Apostle Paul was talking about sowing and reaping; however, all truth is parallel because the principle is the same whether you apply it to sowing and reaping, walking in faith or spiritual warfare. If you do not allow yourself to become weary to the point of giving up, you will reap the reward of your patience and faith. The key is never to give up.
Faithfulness and obedience will bring about the manifestation of your faith. God says His word will always manifest in due season. You may not know when the due season will arrive, that is why it is a faith walk, but you have an assurance that it is coming because God, who promised, cannot lie. However, if you stop standing in faith, if you give up, you will miss your due season. But that is not my prayer for you. My prayer is that you will always be ready and on time when your visitation will come; because it will certainly come.
Many times, when the due season is about to come, the devil will throw his last shot to discourage you, but don’t give in to the devil. Look at the case of Jairus’ daughter in Mk. 5:21-36, the child that was reported sick suddenly died just when Jesus was heading for her home to heal her. When things happens, don’t panic because of pressure. Panic is a sudden, unreasonable overpowering fear – don’t give it a place in your life. It is a smokescreen to hide the miracle from you. Don’t allow it. Stand firm in the word of God knowing that heaven and earth may pass away, but the word of God will surely come to pass.
Don’t draw back, don’t despair, don’t give up. Your due season will come.
