Be Not Weary

Be Not Weary

This post is from the revelatory teaching notes that Dr. Aikens taught in a Bootcamp. Posted by Rev. Jane Babich after attending the Bootcamp.

“Weary”, is a word that when we even hear it, we can feel our energy trying to drain out of us, just as the sound of the word.

If we look at what weary means we will find various descriptions but these two are the most interesting and apply to us as “Warriors of Well Doing”.

First, weary is described as feeling or showing tiredness. When we hear, “she is so weary working and carrying for sick children”, we relate to the fact that she is not getting enough sleep and even more, she has no time for herself, therefore she is weary and we feel her weariness.

Secondly and more to the heart of the matter when we feel weary, it is described as reluctant to see or experience any more of what we have been dealing with or fighting against. I am so weary of praying for things that will never change, or I am so weary of working hard when others are sitting around doing nothing.

But scripture tells us in Galatians 6:9-10, And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap; if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity; let us do good unto all men: especially unto them who are of the household of faith.


Not to be weary is only found in Galatians 6:9, and it means to not let ourselves to be made to look bad or weak because we were found to be lacking the heart to go on.

Here weary implies being suddenly made to feel as if we have done and given our all; and though more is required; yet we feel “done” and liable to burnout.

Not to be weary also suggests being made to feel so impotent, and drained by all we endure or even rehearse; that we leave our self; feeling too shaky and too soft to be expected to endure or continue to stand.

Consider that it seems as if circumstances have succeeded in making us feel we lack the substance, power, or authority to continue our journey or to even think to do the work of well-doing, even though we are expected to.

But scripture tells us in Galatians 6:9, And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap; “if we faint not.

Well is defined as properly and honestly doing what is right, fair, and deemed worthy by giving our all to do it beautifully. But more importantly, it is looking good spiritually; in being used to go about doing what God sees as good, literally, or morally.

Doing signifies to make to be content, to journey, and thus continue to be with to do. It is to do by agreeing to make do in banding together; bearing up or bearing with to then commit to.

Doing also signifies doing so without any delay; executing and or exercising in order to fulfill. The implication is we can only do so if our stance is, none of these things shall move or wear me out.

Galatians 6:9, And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap; “if we faint not.

Due Season in Galatians 6:9 is a concept rendered as “idiots-kairos” which spiritually pertains to God’s timing, that is given to us as an opportunity for us to become fruitful in what it is He pleases us to do.

Due Season as a revelatory concept declares God is fully acquainted with this short, but convenient timing He sets apart to cause timely performances of all He is said will; so must be done.

But what we need to understand is man does not always respect our due seasons because what we reap he often cannot see and certainly cannot touch.

Our God-given due seasons provide the sufficient time necessary for us to produce and fulfill with viable fruit God calls forth as living evidence; proving His good, acceptable, and perfect will.

Galatians 6:9, And let us not be weary in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap; “if we faint not.

We shall reap if we faint not means that we will receive our reward for not being weary in well-doing, and not letting life’s challenges make us faint, give up, or walk away from what we all called to do.

Reaping is part of the promise that we receive if we trust Him in our well-doing because He is a Faithful God.

Although men tend to reject the concept that Galatians 6:9 teaches us, they see it as some silly, future spiritual hope; but know this, God uses our trusting in Him to reveal His will and ways to those that do not believe.

And in do good, stand, and simply trust Him, in our due season we will reap all we need according to His riches in glory.

Philippines 4:19 – And God shall supply all your need according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
