We Will Reap IN DUE TIME

Galatians 6:9 says, "And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary." What does "in due time" mean? It means that God has the day circled on His calendar as to when He will bring your harvest.

When you make your house payment, the billing statement will specify a "due date." Your mortgage company doesn't say, "Oh, just pay it whenever you want." No, they tell you the exact date so that there's no question in your mind about it. When UPS delivers a Next Day Air package, they promise to deliver it "in due time." It is scheduled to arrive by 10:30 the next morning or the shipper doesn't have the pay the shipping costs.

In the same way, your harvest has a specific arrival time on God's schedule. Even though we might not know when it's coming, we can place our confidence in God's promise to bring the harvest in His perfect timing. God has never been late on His deliveries! If we will keep that fact in mind, we will not get discouraged in doing good knowing that the Lord has promised to reward us for our labor. The harvest IS coming!
Keep sowing good seeds,
