“They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalms 126:5-6 KJV
Sowing precious seeds. God’s Word. Brings joy.
This sharing of God’s Word comes naturally to many.
For you all, you’re the ones who can easily strike up a conversation with a stranger. At that moment, God’s amazing grace flows out – affixed to your words – like droplets on a leaf of a tree, bowing over a slow moving river. Offering comfort and peace to a weary traveler.
For others, less forward, your bright, yet soothing countenance resonates peace and offers calm. God’s Spirit shining through exhibiting His mercy and grace. Your smile, nod or presence offers a glimpse of real love – God’s love – to those along life’s pathway.
Such amazing gifts God has given us – His Death. His Burial. His Resurrection. His Word. His Spirit. Oh, and life. A life so much more abundant as we walk with Him.
Sowing seeds of love, faith and hope, will undoubtedly result in a harvest of weary souls made anew. Healthy, whole and fruitful people that will, “sow in tears and reap with joy.”
Whether bold or timid, we are all called to show forth God’s love to all people and nations. What a privilege. To know the Master of the wind trusts mankind, us, to be His hands. feet. mouthpiece.
Prayer is key to a healthy relationship with our Savior. His Word provides seeds. Our walk plants. Our tears water the planted. But, God gives the increase. The Harvest.
“The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.”Jeremiah 8:20
There is still time. This summer has yet to end.
We must be saved.
I encourage you to ask the Lord how He would have you sow His seed. Where. When. To whom.
