No Harvest Unless You Sow - Wednesday's Dose - 2nd August 2017

“If we endure, we will also reign with him” - (2 Timothy 2:12).

Thoughts for Today

Most farmers are very hardworking people. They know that in order to have a bountiful harvest, they have to remain committed to their crops and to their land. They can’t begin a project, stop halfway through it, and expect to be successful. If they want to reap a harvest, they must be committed. The same is true for our life in Christ.

Farmers can’t allow their machinery to fall into disrepair. They can’t say, “Well, I don’t feel like planting this year, or l don’t feel like harvesting my fields.” Instead, they must be willing to get up before sunrise to plow their soil and sow their seed. This is why lazy people never make good farmers. Farmers must be diligent and persistent. We must be diligent and persistent in our relationship with Christ.

The weather is not always fair for farmers, just like life is not always fair to us. There will be hardships; times when you want to give up, but you must not. If you feel you are not growing in your walk with the Lord, ask yourself whether it is because you have failed to cultivate fields of godly character and desire.

We must never forget that we reap what we sow. If we don’t till the soil of godly character and plant the Word of God in our hearts, then we will harvest emotional and spiritual thorns and thistles. There is no harvest unless you sow with a willing heart in the things of God. Ask Him to show you how to sow in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit will grant you the understanding when you pray and seek God’s face.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, 

Will you please help me to till the soil of godly character—being diligent to sow good things by Your Spirit? Please grant me patience and diligence so that I may see the harvest in Christ. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
