TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
The less you strive to survive and acknowledge your weaknesses, the greater My strength can work in you, and through you, so as to thrive.
PARTNERSHIP, PERMISSION AND PARTICIPATION
When it comes to the harvest, let’s get this right. The harvest is Jesus Christ ruling and reigning in a particular area of our life.
The harvest is His Kingdom come to earth in areas He did not have dominion in before. That is the harvest and it’s different for every one of us. Places you can tell He’s been there, that God is in control.
You don’t quit until you have fruit – a changed area of your life – to present to the Lord of the Harvest. You keep working until what needs to happen within your life finally happens. That might be a long, long time. You have to be OK with that.
Or you can join the mean old religious Christians and say, “If it’s a God thing, it’ll happen and if it’s not a God thing, it won’t.” Know this: God won’t transform you without your permission and participation. Amazing, I know! He wants a partner, not a pawn.
Each time you partner with Jesus to plow a field of thorns in your life, then put your hand to that plow, it’s a big win for the Kingdom. Once you’ve tackled the field of your finances, move on to your marriage, kids, ministry or job. There is always another field.
“Do you not say, ‘There are still four months and then comes the harvest’? Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look at the fields, for they are already white for harvest! “And he who reaps receives wages, and gathers fruit for eternal life, that both he who sows and he who reaps may rejoice together. – John 4: 35-36
What areas of your life do you have to plow up and replant? Give them to Jesus and rejoice together with Him at the fruit in your life.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO BE A WILLING PARTICIPANT IN YOUR UPGRADE. PARTNER WITH GOD TO BREAK UP FALLOW PLACES IN YOUR LIFE.
