I Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.
Paul was working very hard. He was burning the candle at both ends. He was spending and being spent.
Not only was he working but he was being mistreated. People mocked him. They thought him a fool. He dealt with persecution.
He said that he could do all of that because he trusted the living God. He thought it was worth it because God was watching him. He was willing to work and be mocked in the work because he trusted God.
He knew God was living. He knew that God was going to answer and move in his life.
We are busy. We may wonder if it is worth but we can be sure that He is God. He is alive. He works in the lives of those that believe Him.
I am going to believe Him! I believe Him! I am going to work hard knowing that He is alive. I am going to know that He is the rewarder of those that diligently seek Him!
