It’s all about the harvest…

Barry McCormick's Post|Its all about the harvest

I was certain I heard God speak the other day. He said to me “It’s all about the harvest”

And immediately for whatever reason that resonated with me. It simply helped me realise on what is important and it refocussed me. The harvest is what is important… as Christians we are God’s labourers in His vineyard and a good and bountiful harvest is down to the work we put in.

So realising this what does it mean really?

  1. We need to know the right season to plant in.
  2. Even though we cant see anything happening something is going on.
  3. We must work hard to ensure a good harvest.
  4. We must be faithful
  5. We must be patient.
  6. All the hard work will be worth it in the end

What we need to realise also is the harvest will be ready in it’s own time. Depending on what you are planting will depend on when it will be ready! And as wee sow seeds in different peoples lives the seeds may take various different lengths of time to come to any fruit.

God sopke to me through this song by Matt Redman, Surely the time has come. And Matt hints in this song that “Surely the time has come to bring the harvest home”

Now wether that harvest is a personal harvest of seeds I have sown or wether it is the seed the church I am in has sown in the community or maybe even the church worldwide …. I do believe the “fields are white unto harvest” and we just need to be faithful labourers to gather that harvest up in the right way in the right time, when the fruit is ripe.

SO remember it is all about the harvest. And remember the work you put in will pay off. Given time, the harvest will be ready.

Do you know why I am still awake?

Well I don't!! This happens to me quite often I was really tired coming home after work. Decided not to go out with friends to have an early night because I was so tired. I went to bed early, woke up just not after not even 2 hours in bed and can't get to sleep! The...

Heavenly Mindedness and Eternal Significance …

The pastor in the church which I attend mentioned this phrase a few weeks ago. I was pondering over some thoughts regarding decision making and this phrase came back to me in the midst of those thoughts. The thought which I had was what do you decide to do when you...

When God Speaks …

... you will not get to sleep! So it is 5:56 am, I have been up pretty much the whole night. This happens to me every now and then when God has something He wants to particularly say to me so a few hours ago, I checked the time on my Mobile, it was just after 4:00 AM...

Just be honest

You know there are things that happen in your life when no matter how hard you try you just cant find it in you to pray to God. I have came across this several times in my life, one time recently. I couldn't pray. I just could not come to God as I normally would and...

Covenant and Promise

It's funny how words at times can lose their integrity and meaning or simply fall out of usage with time. As such, sometimes when we read, some words loose the power and potency which they should pack and it is somewhat diminished. Promise is a word that is probably...

Getting Fit for Truth

I have recently purchased this new CD by Sara Groves called "Conversations." I was playing at a church in Glasgow and they played a song called "He's always been Faithful" which is a beautiful song of only three verses. Anyway as a result I researched the song when I...

A single thought

A single thought reminds me Of the sin that bound me And of the grace that freed me to live a life of love A single word sustains me When this world discourages me It reminds and affirms in me of my Saviour's love A single act done selflessly reminds me of His mercy...

Test All Things …

I have really been challenged of late as to what I actually believe when it comes to the Bible. So much so I am looking at it and I am compiling my thoughts and really looking into and defining my beliefs. Why? Because I don't want to be like grass which is tossed...

And after this?

The greatest question pondered by man since the earliest documented sources we have show man's curiosity about the universe, it's beginnings, what is mans purpose and what comes after this life if anything at all? Religions in their droves throughout the centuries...
