After we plant seeds of obedience, we feel like nothing is happening, but all kinds of things are happening inside where we can’t see.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us that there is a season for everything. We don’t all live in the same season at the same time. There will be times when someone else is enjoying harvest while you’re still in the planting season. In those times, remember that they had to go through a season of planting just as you are.
Seedtime represents learning the will of God. Each time I choose God’s will instead of my own, I’m planting a good seed that will eventually bring a harvest in my life.
Between seedtime and harvest comes a time of waiting. Roots shoot down, digging their way through the ground. It takes time for this to happen, and it takes place underground. Above the ground, you can’t tell anything is happening.
After we plant seeds of obedience, we feel like nothing is happening, but all kinds of things are happening inside where we can’t see. And like the seed that finally bursts through the ground with a beautiful green shoot, our seeds of obedience will finally break forth into a beautiful harvest of what God has planned for our lives.
Prayer Starter: Lord, I know seedtime is necessary for harvesttime, so I’ll wait expectantly, even when it feels like nothing’s happening. I will trust You, knowing that You will bring me into my harvest at just the right time.
