Your Labor is Not in Vain

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (NKJV) There are times in every Christian's life when discouragement sets in and we feel that our faithfulness is in vain. We live our lives according to God's word, faithfully praying and confessing the gospel, and yet everything seems to be going wrong. These moments of hardship can wear us down, and even lead us to begin doubting or second guessing God. The Bible calls these times in our lives "tests" and "trials" and even explains the purpose behind them. In James 1:2-4 (NKJV) we read, "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing." Every hardship and trial in our lives serves the purpose of maturing and growing our faith in God, and if you truly look back at those moments, you can see the how, when, and why of your trial, and the exact moment that God showed up and delivered you from it! As followers of Christ, our job in trials is to rely on Him and continue to do good. We are to believe He will show up and know that we will benefit from every trial we face. Galatians 6:9 (NKJV) puts it this way: "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." If you're doing right and all is going wrong, don't lose heart...don't grow weary. God sees your faithfulness and He knows your struggles. Stay the course and trust in Him, and remember these words from Psalm 30:5 (NKJV) - "...Weeping may endure for a night, But joy comes in the morning." Hallelujah and Amen!
