Seed Time and Harvest

His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
— 2 Peter 1:3

Hang out with a farmer for a day and you get it. This walk of faith in dry times. Farmers do their best to feed the world. Unpredictable weather systems and climate changes are all part of the challenge to produce a harvest in due season. There are no guarantees. It is an expression of faith and determination every year as a farmer plants new crops in a field.

But it says a lot about life and who we are as well. Live your life sewing good seed into others, believing in others, supporting those who are out there going for it for God. When we take small steps of generous faith God turns up and provides so much more. Keep loving and serving people like Jesus does. You can’t go wrong.

Farming families across Australia have been forced to plant seed into dry ground again this year as the early season rains have not yet come. It takes great faith to invest so much into the land at this time and yet its that faith that eventually produces a harvest later in the year. And whether a crop is bountiful or fails, God’s faithfulness remains the same. He is at work in our lives as we seek first His Kingdom and righteousness.

And to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
— Ephesian 3:19-20
