Friday, February 9th: Leviticus 10-12; Ephesians 5 ~ Emma

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Leviticus 10-12; Ephesians 5

“Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” - Ephesians‬ ‭5:16‬

It can be very very tiring to keep the faith in “these evil days”, as put in this verse. Sometimes it can even seem hopeless, especially when you’ve been friends or coworkers with someone who does not believe in God for years, and still they don’t believe in Him. But don’t lose heart, God is working in ways you can’t even see. You might just be the planter of seed, and it will be someone else who harvests. It can be very hard not to lose hope when everything around us seems to be without God, but we need to trust that God has a plan, and we need to “make the most of every opportunity” that He presents us with. It’s a tiring race, but it’s nothing compared to the wonderful reward we will receive at the finish line.

Good points, keep pursuing God - even through discouragement, it will be worth it in the end!

Great post! It can definitely be discouraging when we look at the world around us, especially when it's our friends or family that still need to be reconciled to God. A reminder to keep our focus on Jesus and rest in His faithfulness.
