It is the portion of those who have a growing and thriving relationship with Jesus to experience harvest on a daily basis. When God declares this year the year of Abundant Harvest, it means the harvest is going to be out of the norm; one that will defy our expectations.
There is no harvest without God! God wants us to have a great expectation of the harvest while keeping our focus on Him.
Three truths that help us have the right perspective in this year of abundant harvest are:
2.He makes things grow – Neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who makes things grow (1 Corinthians 3:7). We have all sown seeds (of prayer, encouragement, love, the Word, finances, etc) for which we are excited to see the harvest. Seeds are important to begin the process of growth. However, even though we have planted and watered and waited, it is only the power of God that makes the seeds to grow and make the harvest possible. We must boast that we know and understand the Lord (Jeremiah 9:23).
May we seek to know and understand that God alone is the Lord of the Harvest!
