My intentions for this post was a quick word from THE WORD to encourage us to NOT faint or be weary in this culture and season of our respective journeys. Some of us are newer in our journey than others; but weariness is no respecter of persons. 🙂
9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
And as I keyed in faint at Bible Gateway dot-com more than the expected Galatians passage appeared. And I wondered if our word FAINT was the same for each passage; so I next visited Bible Study Tool dot-com to use the Hebrew and Greek Lexicon which can be accessed at the tab Interlinear Bible.
And so my word to you from THE WORD today is lean in on ABBA today so you do not grow weary; so you do not faint and as you study THE WORD check out those Hebrew (Old Testament) and those Greek (New Testament) words. It will be enlightening!
So what does the FAINT in Galatians 6:9 mean? (It’s not the same faint as in Ephesians 3:13.)
Click HERE and see (for Galatians 6:9) it is akin to the marriage covenant. So let us keep ‘covenant’ with the HOLY SPIRIT who seals us; let us make the decision to not step out on Him and give into our flesh of doubts and frustrations and fears and weariness of putting up with this mess; keep leaning on Him, keep believing Him, keep trusting Him and we will see His reward in due time.
Warning! This bites! When we as followers of JESUS, decide to go with our feelings, our flesh instead of staying in trust, walking in the SPIRIT, we have become unfaithful to our LORD in that decision. Praise HIM! Praise HIM! That He forgives and brings us back to the path of discipleship!
9 If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing.
Well, Friends, it was not quick or short but I hope it is encouraging. May ADONAI bless you and keep you and make His Face shine upon you. Numbers 6:24-27.
Thank You, ABBA. Thank You.
