Waiting for the Harvest: “Into the Word” Week 38

I am a city girl.  I don’t like to get my fingers dirty.  I like being able to purchase what I need at a nice, big store.  But, I know that in God’s economy, sometimes He will require us to jump in and get dirty as we plant something that will take time to harvest.  This week, I was reminded of this fact as I was  digging  “Into the Word”:

Dear brothers and sisters,

be patient as you wait for the Lord’s return.

Consider the farmers who patiently wait

for the rains in the fall and in the spring.

They eagerly look for the valuable harvest to ripen.

 You, too, must be patient.

Take courage, for the coming of the Lord is near.

James 5:7-8, NLT

This passage outlines how we should behave while we are in God’s waiting room:  Be patient,  Consider others who have planted and are waiting.  Eagerly look for the harvest.  Take courage as you wait.    The harvest will come.  Keep marching forward.

Q4U:  What has God taught you about the harvest as you wait?

Every Monday we will be working our way through Anne Graham Lotz’s 52-week study “Into the Word.”    Hop on over to the 3dLessons4Life Blog Facebook Page to join us as we dig into God’s Word together.
