You Are About to Be Blessed

English Audio Version

In winter, look at the apple tree. It’s all bare branches and bark.

It looks like rooted firewood, no good for anything except cutting down. The trunk looks stunted, the limbs are twisted and weathered, and even the ground is littered with last year’s detritus.

During the summer, we wonder what good can come from an apple tree. They’re not graceful, their shade is limited, and they don’t grow tall enough to provide lumber for residential construction.

Cut it down! Cut it down! Even its fruit remains unripe and inedible throughout the summer season.

Yet, yet … if we tend the tree … if we are patient … if we endure the long months of anticipation, the harvest will arrive.

That’s us. That’s you, the apple tree full of promise, the delayed reward, the hoping, hoping, hoping for something better …

God says you are about to be blessed.

Galatians 6:9 tells us:

“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”

That grandchild you’re raising? Let us not grow weary of doing good.

That boss that irks you incessantly? Let us not grow weary of doing good.

Your health concerns? Your nosy neighbor? The time you give to others that no one thanks you for?

You are about to be blessed! Praise God! As the Word says, let us not grow weary of doing good. In due season we will reap the rewards God is about to shower on us!

God’s timing is now. Your blessings are ready and waiting. Reach out for them and take what’s yours.
