Summary: Do not become weary boy see yourself as God sees you!

Galatians 6:9 (AMP)

9 And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.

God is Faithful!!!


· Sometimes we become weary because ~ because

a) No obvious results

b) Lack of success where we think our faith should be accomplishing.

c) Outside persecution.

d) Criticism

e) Tests of our faith.

f) Distractions come from both external sources, and internal sources.

I want to share practical things on …. not becoming weary

And how to be strong in the Lord.

Let's remember

Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV)

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, (for He who promised is faithful.)


Q: Why do people become weary?

1. People problems,

2. Financial situations,

3. Any attack from the enemy.

4. Negative people

5. Outside pressures


There is a difference....BETWEEN

the temptation to quit


quitting its self!!!


NIV - Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm.

1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (NIV)

57 But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

(NKJV)1 Cor 15:58

58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable,

STEADFAST = to firmly fix in one place,

Or firm in what you believe. ……….Or determination.

Summed up as ~ LOYALTY

Loyalty ~ Steadfastness ~ being fixed immovably.

Q: Why do people failed to remain STEADFAST?


Mark 4:16-17 (NIV)

16 Others, like seed sown on rocky places, hear the word and at once receive it with joy.

17 But since they have no root, they last only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, they quickly fall away.

1. It didn’t say if……. It said when.

2. Jesus said there will be problems!

3. John 16:33 ~ In the world you shall have tribulation:

4. Psalms 34:17&19 (ESV)

19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Peter tells us to stand firm too

1 Peter 5:10

10 And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.

· Jesus said the same thing in Mark 4 ~ there will be problems!

The nature of problems….. Are one thing

1. To distract you

2. To pull your attention off the word of God

3. To pull your attention off what God has called you to do

4. To give you the chance to become weary


You remember Paul’s

thorn in the flesh? 2 Corinthians 12:7

2 Corinthians 12:7 (ESV)

7 So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited.

1) Paul’s thorn was never there until he received abundance of revelation.

2) Thorn was given to distract him off the revelations.


People think once they reach a spiritual level there will be no problems.

BUT ~ we are three part man…….. spirit ~ soul ~ body

Scripture tells us

1 Peter 5:8-9 (NKJV)

8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

9 Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.


We fail to understand we live in a natural world.

And Satan is the God of this world. > Second Corinthians 4:4

And the god of this world is going to do everything in his power to,

Distract the Christian.

Deceive the Christian

Destroy the Christian.

1. He will use every avenue / tool possible.

2. He is the master of deception.

3. He has everything at his disposal in this natural world.

He understands what moves us.

1. …………………where our weakness are.

2. ………………….the body is not redeemed yet.

3. ………………….we are working on our soul. mind will emotions

He uses these areas against us.



Paul mentioned something like this in……

2 Corinthians 4:8-9 (NIV)

8 We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;

9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
