I don’t know what you may be going through right now, but I hope that this verse from Galatians 6 offers some encouragement (it did for me, anyway). Let’s remember to keep doing good – planting seeds of blessings for others – and trust that God goes before us and plants seeds of His own (ones that are especially intended for us), too.
Hear me: I do not believe in the “prosperity gospel”. No, rather, what I mean is that the Lord has already gone ahead of us and planted some nourishing resources for us further up the path, but we must be walking on it (and keeping alert), expecting that His seeds – and ours – will eventually present a harvest one day.
As with all things in life, growth takes time, and the harvest principle is no exception. In fact, the Lord may walk so far ahead of us with His seeds that we have no idea where to find them, and we often grow weary along the way. Frequently, the path may be chock-full of twists and dark corners, and in our fear, we are tempted to turn around and return to the well-trodden path (now choked with weeds) from our past.
Instead, let’s keep doing what God has asked us to do, believing in faith that – “at just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing” if persevere through the tough seasons (also, let’s remember that God’s definition of “blessing” may look quite different from ours).
So press on, my friends, and keep your eye on the path for any signs of growth and change! Truly, the harvesr of the Lord is just around the corner…. 🌿
