Do not grow weary!

Labour comes in many form in the kingdom, it could be in the Word (1 Timothy 5:17), in all kinds of Prayer (Colossians 4:12), in Planting, in Ministering to the needs of others and so on but what makes it rise as a sweet smelling savour to God is when it is done out of love. God can not take his eyes off labour that is done out of love, He is not unjust to even to forget. Every labour done in love is before God’s face and He can’t forget what He is always seeing.

I stumbled on a post by a dear brother and it blessed me a great deal in fact it encouraged me a lot, it is a song written and performed by The Porter’s Gate telling about the truth that our labour is not in vain. While I saw this video, I imagined a number of us are in the season of continuous sowing and sometimes it feels like there isn’t going to be any yield.

This week we want to encourage you not to be weary in well doing and I would love to share with you the lyrics of the song;

[Verse 1]
Your labor is not in vain
Though the ground underneath you is cursed and stained
Your planting and reaping are never the same
Your labor is not in vain

[Verse 2]
Your labor is not unknown
Though the rocks they cry out and the sea it may groan
The place of your toil may not seem like a home
But Your labor is not unknown

[Chorus]
I am with you, I am with you
I am with you, I am with you
For I have called you, called you by name
Your labor is not in vain

[Verse 3]
The vineyards you plant will bear fruit
The fields will sing out and rejoice with the truth
For all that is old will at last be made new
The vineyards you plant will bear fruit

[Chorus]
I am with you, I am with you
I am with you, I am with you
For I have called you, called you by name
Your labor is not in vain

For God, the Faithful One, is not unfair. How can he forget the work you have done for him? He remembers the love you demonstrate as you continually serve his beloved ones for the glory of his name. Hebrews 6:10

Do not quit labouring in love, God has not forgotten you!

We invite you to journey with the Lord Jesus as you ask Him to take rest in your heart by saying this prayer;

Dearest Jesus I thank you for your death, burial and resurrection, you did all of this for me. I know I have lived my life without you in it but today I surrender all to you, forgive my sins and take over my life. Thank You for Your LOVE towards me Jesus. In Jesus name. Welcome to God’s family!
