If I stand here and try to understand God’s grace in my natural mind, I am befuddled.
I don’t get why God chooses to do what he does. Let’s face it, we see in part.
It has always bothered me why one person got such a clear perspective of his life and I look in the mirror every day and think “Ok, what do I do now?” such is an artist’s life. Having everything at my disposal and having nothing beyond what God inspires me to have. I have said this before, but it is our faith that activates the things of God to their fullest measure, and my faith… today, seemed rather dim.
What I realize is that is exactly what flesh will bring you to, a dim, stained view of yourself. Did I know this before today? Likely not, but what I did in response to my flesh today… was choose (in surrender to God) to leave my flesh behind in search of a beautiful harvest for the day.
It is Autumn here in Texas. That means you could flip a coin as to the weather at any given moment in the day. It also means harvest time. When I was growing up that is what the boys did to make a few extra dollars, after school all the guys went to the hay fields. They bundled hay for about two weeks to a month and brought in the harvest. They were tired and worn out every night but they never stopped.
I guess what God showed me today is that it is time to bring in the Harvest. Time to reap what we have sowed during the year, to let our light shine for the world to see. At the end of the day, often it was beginning to get dark (like the world) and people would begin to pull lights out for the last bit of the field they were harvesting.
God let me know today that it was time to pull out my light and shine it for the world.
What have you been hiding that God is ready to harvest in you? Think about what he has brought to you the last 12 months. From the beginning it was so he could seed, plant, and harvest a great work in your soul, your ministry, your hope of a bright future for yourself and others around you.
Your light was not meant to shine on just your harvest but the harvest of the great souls ahead of us. God has planted in us such goodness that cannot be stored in one man alone.
Be gracious to the calling he has brought you to and fulfill the need of the souls around you.
Let light shine from you!
It has come to overwhelm those around you with love and hope for a season of transformation.
Your light is Holy unto God and he has created in you a place that it might shine forever more for this great work. Destiny is calling you. Will you answer? Can you resist God any further?
Our light is the one true God and he is writing on your soul, for he alone knows the power and might and strength he has purchased for you. Do not delay! Find your way in the Father and he will set you free for the Harvest is yet to come and you are needed!
