Do you ever feel unsupported, unacknowledged, under-appreciated or alone in your efforts to help others? Mortal life can feel that way sometimes. But take heart. There’s a spiritual angle to consider that can deliver you from despair.
God is cheering you on! Keep up the good work. God is behind you all the way. People may fail you, but God will never fail to support you.
Others may not see the good you’re doing. Others may not be aware of the selfless work you’ve done to aid those in need. But God knows all about it. God is happy with you and the good acts and deeds you commit and wants you to keep it up.
Jesus frequently faced ingratitude and lack of interest for what he had to offer. But he didn’t let the apathy and indifference get him down, at least not for long. He kept up his good works, knowing that salvation comes from living a life filled with love and unselfish giving.
When Jesus got discouraged and disheartened, for instance, in the garden of Gethsemane, God was there to pull him back up again. The human desertion Jesus was about to face was all foretold, but God was there to bring him through it, and triumph for the ages! What a spectacular ending with the resurrection and ascension. Jesus had never been forsaken, not by God anyway.
So, chin up. You are not alone. Lean on God, not on others, for the moral and spiritual support you need to prosper your selfless activity.
When you’re engaged in good works you’re doing God’s work, and God will be with you ALL THE WAY, guaranteed.
