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.

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...

Love God, spend time in His word

Over these past few weeks and months I have been really challenged about how I love people. Do I really love people? How can I say that I do? I have also been challenged about this in terms of my relationship with God. Can I honestly say I love God? If it was illegal...

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...

Music. How much more spiritual can you get?

You often hear Christians saying "I don't understand how Scientists can study aspect of God's creation and not see God in it" or "How can scientists say there is no God?" Which, if you are Christian with maybe limited Scientific knowledge is maybe a logical argument...

Are we wrong to judge?

If you have already answered that question in your mind before you have read this post you have already made a judgement. Now depending on on what your answer was will depend whether you were right or wrong to pass that judgement according to yourself. How did you...

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...

God wants us all to be rich

You have maybe heard this from TV preachers or those who preach the so called "Prosperity Gospel." I would say I completely and whole-heartedly agree! God wants us to be rich. And not only that I would say if you are not rich you cannot be a Christian! Disagree? Think...

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...

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...
