The Harvest Is Coming

The harvest is getting close.

I do not know this because I am an agriculture expert or a 4H grad who can look at the corn and soybeans and know NOW is the time for the harvest.

So, how do I know the harvest is near?

The farmers are busy prepping and readying their equipment for the harvest.  All day long I can hear combines and collection bins being moved from the barn to the field.

The harvest is at hand.

Farmers know that an equipment failure which results from not being prepared can lead to the loss of a whole crop or significantly reduce the value of the harvest.

The same is true in the spiritual realm of your life.  Even Jesus said, “It is not for you to know times or seasons … be ready!”

In Matthew 25, the five who were unprepared regretted their decision.  The five who were prepared rejoiced.  There will come the time when it is too late to be right with God.

Are you prepared for God’s harvest?

I have always dreamed of having one of those lawns seen in commercials for lawn care products.  Wishing for such, never brought forth the dream.

Last fall, after our horrific drought, I fertilized my yard, twice; over-seeded my yard twice; and doubled my water bill watering the yard without ceasing.  In March, while winter still had her grip on us, I fertilized again, laying down some extra, just in case.  Then came April’s showers, at twice the normal rate.

With all this doubling of nutrients and liquid, I was disappointed when I mowed my yard for the first time last week.  The grass was not particularly green, much-less thick and tall.  My dream was unfulfilled.

After a week of warm sunshine … well you know the story … the grass was thick and lush.

I remember being at the hardware store last fall, wondering if an investment in fertilizer would pay-off.  It did.

I know thousands of Christians who long for a deeper sense of God’s presence with them, yet they never invest in spending time with Him.  They languish day by day, limping instead of running, falling instead of flying.

They invest heavily in the world and sparsely in God.  Instead of being carried by the grace of God, they bear the burdens of the world.

They reap what they have sown.

“The Lord God will supply and multiply your seed for sowing 

and He will increase your harvest.”

2 Corinthians 9:10
