COMMITTED TO A CROP
When it comes to the harvest, you must stay committed. You will not fall out or lose focus. God expects a crop of believers pulled from hell’s thresher.
If you signed up to teach Sunday School, don’t think of ways to get out of it because it’s time consuming. Mentoring a new believer? Don’t give up because schedules or personalities clash. Find a way! Serve. Love. Testify. It’s what we do and we don’t give up when things get inconvenient or uncomfortable.
Just as important as being committed, you need to stay in your own plot of land that God Almighty has given you, whether it’s one acre or 100,000 acres. Do not look at your brother’s plot and say, “He’s more fruitful than me. I want a crop just like that.”
“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘When you come into the land which I give to you, and reap its harvest, then you shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the priest.”
– Leviticus 23:10
Get your eyes off someone else’s ministry. The ministry God gave you is uniquely tailored for your strengths, talents, time and placement. You stay committed to it. Have lots and lots of Kingdom wins and give your High Priest the biggest harvest of souls you can.
There are days when things happen. There are days you don’t feel good, but you can’t run off. The enemy doesn’t like you sowing seeds and he really hates you pouring water on your fields because it puts out his flames. He doesn’t want Jesus to get a harvest. He will oppose you.
Defy the devil! Stay committed until there is a harvest. It really is that simple.

I will never leave you nor turn My back on you. In the same way, don’t turn your back on others.
