Harvest Time

13 Jan

My mom found this short writing and shared it with me. I was immensely blessed reading it as it was during a time of struggle and frustration for me. Hope you will be blessed and encouraged as well if you are trying to remain faithful in your walk with Christ but are disheartened not being able to see a light at the end of the tunnel.

“In  harvest time, more than ever before, you hear from God, you enjoy His presence, and you’re led by the Spirit. Blessings begin to chase you down the street and joy and calm and delight become your normal mood.

Are you tired of waiting for harvest time in your life? Are you frustrated, crying out, “when, God, when?” Then you need to understand that God’s timing is often a mystery. He doesn’t do things on our timetable. Yet, His Word promises that He will not be late, not one single day. But these things He plans won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day! “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:3.

God causes things to happen at exactly the right time! Your job is not to figure out when, but to make up your mind that you won’t give up until you cross the finish line and are living in the radical, outrageous blessings of God! The more you trust Jesus and keep your eyes focused on Him, the more life you’ll have. Trusting God brings life. Believing brings rest. So stop trying to figure everything out, and let God be God in your life.”
