"As long as the earth remains, there will be spring time and harvest …" (Genesis eight:22).
This is our year of harvest!
Harvest is act of gathering in of grains and different meals crops. It is reaping from what you have got sown. As we all know, this can be a very robust, standing Divine precept. God stated that so long as the earth stays, there have to be a time to sow and a time to reap. It is a standing legislation. It is a covenant that may by no means be damaged. An train that’s supervised by God himself. Yes, our God is a God of seasons. If you need to achieve your life stroll with Him, you must see Him as so. He is so orderly that he has put every little thing in seasons. A season is a interval appropriate or regular for one thing. This is our season of harvest and nothing can change it.
I feel the farmer is in one of the best place to grasp this harvest phenomenon. Everything about him is managed by this precept. He is aware of that there’s season for every little thing. He is aware of that there’s a season for clearing of bushhes. A season for tilling the bottom, planting the seeds. A season for weaving and nurturing the tender vegetation. A season for the vegetation to bear fruits and fairly the harvest time. All this stuff are nicely managed and would culminate to , desired, bountiful harvest on the finish.
The farmer dare not neglect any of the seasons. He should clear the bush on the proper time. He should until the bottom firstly of the rains and plant good, high quality seeds as nicely. He should weed and nurture the younger vegetation till they will survive on their very own. Protecting them from undesirable vegetation, thistles, pests and even supporting them with further soil if want be. Afterwards, he continues to go to and take care of his crops often. In some circumstances, on each day foundation. This he’ll do till the crops mature, bear fruits and are prepared for harvest. It takes a course of. And it’s all the time a interval of braveness, onerous work, religion, endurance, ache, consistency, talent, timing, then anticipation, pleasure, pleasure and celebration. It follows this sequence. It is a longtime course of.
Interestingly, that is how I see our stroll with God. He is a God of seasons as I’ve earlier stated. He even instructed us that it’s what we sow that we are going to completely reap. He walks with us on this manner. God has occasions, processes, and seasons. He put every little thing in its personal interval and the bible stated that he make them stunning. Yes, we’ve got gone by a course of. As people, as a folks, as a ministry. We have cleared the bush, tilled the bottom and planted the standard seeds. We have nurtured and watered the younger tender vegetation to maturity. We have waited in hope until the maturity and the harvest is prepared. Now, this declaration isn’t just as a result of of the pure planting phenomenon. God himself is saying that it’s time for our harvest. I see a hand plucking the ripe fruits from the highest of the tree. I additionally see the gathering of the harvested fruits, crops being introduced in a big amount.
Why would God give us harvest now? One, He can resolve to do no matter He likes at any time. Two, He had instructed us from the start that our stroll with Him goes to be like that of the farmer's expertise – Sowing and reaping. Process of planting and harvesting. And we actually went by that course of. Like the farmer, we endured hardship. The bible stated that these sow in tears shall reap in pleasure. There isn’t any sowing that doesn’t require a point of efforts, ache, challenges. And each farmer additionally has the choice of ignoring the planting season. Every farmer has the choice of not often visiting and nurturing his tender crops. But the one that can anticipate bountifully harvest should ignore all these unfavourable choice and do the fitting issues.
You will agree with me that we’ve got gone by all these levels. And now God says that we are going to begin reaping. Can something change that? No! Can the enemy do something about that? No! It is our harvest time. God shouldn’t be unjust, if you sow, you’ll reap. And He makes all stunning in his personal time. Praise His identify!
I see 2010 as a year of harvest. I see it as a year of bountiful reaping. We have sown in tears, in sorrow, in hardship. We have been mock and disgraced whereas sowing for His kingdom and for our future. We went by ache and struggling. Our authority, authenticity and intentions had been queried. We had been known as names. We went by untold hardship, lack and deprivation, however we inspired ourselves within the Lord like David. Now, the crops are matured and ripe for harvest. Let's go rapidly into this New Year and start to reap them. It goes to be bountiful, full, press down and working over. Begin to have fun now.Till subsequent week. God bless and happy NEW YEAR!
