The rainbow of red, yellows and browns, the dancing leaves and the soft change in temperatures truly make autumn a beautiful season. God’s creation not only showers us with beauty, but it also speaks volumes of truths we should reflect on. Every season has a story and the story of autumn is more than just colors. It is all about harvest.
Harvest is life in motion.
It is the joy of bringing forth and receiving the fruit of the land as it births the product of the seed planted and nurtured weeks before.
Seed-time-harvest, this is the order we see in nature and in our spiritual lives harvest comes in the same way. You sow the seed, you nurture the seed and in due season you bring in the harvest.
What decides your harvest? Whether you realize it or not you sow first, you plant first. This is when you decide your harvest. What you reap depends on what you planted. You don’t get to pick and choose at harvest time… you pick your harvest when you sow.
If you are not pleased with the harvest in any area of your life don’t be discouraged. You can change it by planting new and good seed with God’s help. He is The Miracle Worker.
Now remember, planting is work and it is possible to have a good harvest even in the midst of hard times so never faint. Protect your seed. God’s word will equip you with all the knowledge you need to birth a GREAT HARVEST in your life and in your family as well!
Galatians 6:7-9 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
2 Corinthians 9:6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
