Dear Friends,
Today I want to share with you one of the devotionals from my book, Devotions for Working Women, that encourages us to not get weary in well doing. It is very difficult to always walk on the narrow road following Jesus when we are surrounded by worldly things and desires. But in the end, it is always worth the effort. God sees our hearts and he will reward us. His Word is full of promises for when we do good, such as the one I share on this devotional. I encourage you to continue your journey striving to live a godly life.

The Godly Will Flourish
Psalm 92:12-13 (NLT)

But the godly will flourish like palm trees, and grow strong like the cedars of Lebanon. For they are transplanted into the Lord’s own house. They flourish in the courts of God.

This is a great promise of God to all of us. Sometimes we see the worldly people succeed and we wonder, is it worth it? Are the fight and sacrifices we make on a daily basis to live a godly life worth it? Yes and yes. The Bible reminds us of the wicked’s short-lived success. Their final destination is eternal destruction. Our final destination is eternal life with God. Therefore, our efforts and focus must be in sharing the good news of the Gospel so more people can partake of eternal life. God makes us strong, like the big cedar trees that stand for years and years.

We, the godly, are transplanted directly to God’s own house. What a privilege that is! We cannot take it for granted. His promise to us is that we will flourish in His presence and grow strong so we can do His work on earth.

Don’t get weary in living a godly life for doing so is worth everything. Even if you work in a worldly environment, continue to be an example and the light to the world around you. You are strong in the Lord, and you will flourish.
