"And as for you, brethren, do not become weary or lose heart"
Whenever we become tired or weary, let's get back and imitate our model. Our model of consistency and not tiring is the EVERLASTING GOD, our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Isaiah 40:28 (Amplified Bible)
Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint or grow weary; there is no searching of His understanding.
2 Corinthians 4:1 (Amplified Bible)
THEREFORE, SINCE we do hold and engage in this ministry by the mercy of God [granting us favor, benefits, opportunities, and especially salvation], we do not get discouraged (spiritless and despondent with fear) or become faint with weariness and exhaustion.
Fainting here include weariness and exhaustion, we don't get discouraged, we get motivated by our LORD because He renews our strength like the eagles, progressively and day after day.
2 Corinthians 4:16 (Amplified Bible)
Therefore we do not become discouraged (utterly spiritless, exhausted, and wearied out through fear). Though our outer man is [progressively] decaying and wasting away, yet our inner self is being [progressively] renewed day after day.
Psalms 103:5 (Amplified Bible)
Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!
Revelation 2:3 (Amplified Bible)
I know you are enduring patiently and are bearing up for My name’s sake, and you have not fainted or become exhausted or grown weary.
The LORD JESUS CHRIST knows that we can do it because of His Strength in us.
Hebrews 6:10 (Amplified Bible)
For God is not unrighteous to forget or overlook your labor and the love which you have shown for His name’s sake in ministering to the needs of the saints (His own consecrated people), as you still do.
Galatians 6:9 (Amplified Bible)
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.
