Day 44 Near the Goal

And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9

I can imagine that the Olympic athletes have grown weary as they trained day after day with hopes of accomplishing their goal. But the goal is now in sight. Hopefully they will succeed in what they set out to achieve. Soon they will reap their reward.

Friends and family have traveled long distances to cheer these athletes on their journey to gold. Even in the noise of the crowd, they can hear that familiar voice of their loved ones.

In our journey of life God is by our side cheering us on to victory. We need to hear His voice of encouragement and direction so we do not lose heart.

There have been times in my life when I desperately needed to hear God's voice as a neared the goal. It's too easy to give up before we reach the goal if the encouragement is not there.

Take time each day to seek the Lord in Bible study and prayer. This will help you remain strong and stay on course as you reach for the goal God has set before you.

My prayer for you as you near the goal is that you will not get weary. Hang on and get ready to reap the harvest.

God Bless Your Heart,
