Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.  Gal 6-9

I really don't enjoy gardening. Cutting grass and pulling weeds is about the limit of my ability and patience. Occasionally I plant a few potatoes with our son to show him where vegetables come from and to see if I can ignite some interest for him in the garden. My cunning plan is to pass the gardening duties to him, as he gets older!

But patience is required to reap the harvest, we all understand that. Patience is one of the fruits of walking in the spirit. It is a sign of spiritual maturity when we trust God in situations of life and know that He is in control even if we haven't seen the harvest yet. Paul tells the Galatians not to grow tired or frustrated when doing good in life and for the Lord. Maybe you are praying for someone who isn't saved to come to Christ, or you're waiting on that breakthrough at work. It can be frustrating if we don't immediately see the rewards of our labor.

Be patient; God is working for you behind the scenes and His timing is perfect. A Farmer is confident that if he has planted carrots he will harvest carrots, despite the fact that he can't see them growing underground. We too should be confident in Gods promises for us irrespective of our circumstances today.
