PREPARE FOR THE HARVEST

God is always ready to pour out His blessings in generous measure.  But, like seed sowing, the ground must be prepared before the seed is dropped in.  Our job is to prepare the soil.  It’s God’s job to drop the seed, His Word.  As we prepare the soil and apply God’s Word (the seed) we will begin the process of growth.  This may mean many days of choosing the right and avoiding the wrong, days of doing well, of being kind, of being loving, and being patient.  As you go along each day, you prepare more and more for God’s planting, until you reach the time of harvest.  Then you will share the harvest with God – the harvest of a useful and abundant life.  God’s promises can never be broken; you always reap what you sow!  If you want to be loved…love.  If you want understanding… be understanding.  If you want mercy…be merciful.  If you want… give.

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night, shall not cease.”  Genesis 8:22

PRAYER 4 TODAY

I pray that I may properly prepare my soil by choosing to do right today.  I know if I prepare my soil, cultivate it, and patiently wait, I will reap the harvest God has planted in my heart.

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

Am I willing to share my harvest with others?
