Never a Lost Cause

God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. (Hebrews 6:10 NIV)

Do you ever feel like all of the effort that you put into working for The Lord is getting you nowhere? Like how you can put so much time into helping others,and going to prayer meetings and trying your very hardest to win lost souls, but still you feel like God nor anyone else seems to care or notice. You feel like you haven't led anyone to Christ and your prayed just aren't getting answered. 

Since we are all human, I'm sure we have all had this little pitty party at one time or another!! We begin listening to the devil saying that everything we have done has been in vain and that we might as well give up and not waste our time! But don't listen to him!!! He is a liar!!! It doesn't matter if people notice what we are doing anyway!!! 

As long as our hearts are pure and we know without a shadow of a doubt that everything we are doing is completely for God, he will honor us!! God notices everything we do for him!! He knows how much we love him and how much we love his children! His word even says in Proverbs 19 that he will repay us! So, don't get discouraged when working for The Lord starts to seem like a lost cause! It is NEVER a lost cause!!

  1. Maggi, I have felt that way lately! I could care less about if people notice but I have started to wonder....why God? So much time spent praying for church family and family and prayers are still unanswered. I KNOW it is NOT in vain and I KNOW GOD WILL ANSWER!!!!! Thanks for reminding me not to get weary. :) Pamela Britt Malone
