God knows your faithfulness

So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don't give up. Galatians 6:9 (HCSB)

If God sees all the good things that I do, then my response should be,
"Don't Be Discouraged!"

Here's another benefit from God knowing everything: He sees everything you do that is good and right. Every time you choose not to sin, every time you resist temptation, every time you take a stand because of God's Truth, he sees your faithfulness to Him. 

The Bible says every good deed will be rewarded, no matter how insignificant and regardless of whether anybody else on earth sees it.

Every encouragement you give to other people, every kind word you give to your children, every time you do a thoughtful act for your husband, every time you pick up around the office when it's not your job, every time you set up chairs in church or stuff bulletins, every act of courtesy, every time you refuse to gossip, every time your positive instead of negative -- God sees it all, no matter how small. (Matthew 10:40-42)

Imagine yourself on a giant stage and you're the only person on that stage.  You're acting out your life.  In the audience there is only one person and it's God.  He's out there clapping and saying "I see that good thing you just did.  Keep on going! Nobody else saw it, but I saw it." 

So what should be my response?  If God sees all the good things that I do and He's out there cheering me on, then my response should be, "Don't Be Discouraged!"

You may be thinking, "I've been trying to do the right thing in my marriage.  I don't see any results.  I've been trying to be the right kind of person and respond correctly with my kids or to my parents.  I've been trying to do the right thing at work or at school. And I don't know if it's paying off.  I don't see it making any difference in anybody's life."

God says, "I see it and it doesn't matter who else sees it."

Nothing good we ever do is ever done in vain: "So we must not get tired of doing good, for we will reap at the proper time if we don't give up." (Galatians 6:9, HCSB)
