Harvest                                        Submitted by : Merilee Ottoson

 

I am NOT a farmer….nor will I EVER pretend to be one.

The first time I planted flowers, I dug a hole and dumped the entire  package of seeds into the hole! However, I DO know a few things about the harvest.


“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9

 

Did you notice that the Scripture says “we  WILL reap a harvest”?  A harvest is always certain…… The question is not whether there will be a harvest, but when it will come and how much there will be?

When farmers planted their crops last spring and when others of you planted your gardens…..you knew that in a number of weeks you would have a harvest. However, you weren’t certain WHEN or HOW MUCH it would yield.


How about the spiritual harvest? We fret and sometimes don’t speak out for the Lord because we worry about the outcome…but that is something we don’t have to worry about. The harvest is HIS!!


His is the WHEN and the HOW. Our faithfulness to speak a “word of testimony” for Him will always produce fruit.


“So shall My Word be that goes forth from My mouth. It will accomplish what I desire and succeed in the matter for which I sent it.” Isaiah 55:11

Aren’t you glad that you are NOT in control? That frees us to just be obedient.


Thank you, Lord, that you invite us to be part of this Harvest. As we join you in seeking souls, we will be blessed for our obedience!
