So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.
Galatians 6:9 (NLT)
My grandmother used to have a blackberry bush at her house. As a kid, I would go over to her house to pick and eat the blackberries right off the bush (I grew up in a different time). One day when I was visiting her I learned that blackberries are a seasonal fruit because they were all gone. She told me that I would have to wait a while before there would be more. There was nothing wrong with the blackberry bush; it was just in a different season. There are times in life we are expecting a harvest in the wrong season. It’s not that the harvest isn’t coming, it’s just that it’s the wrong season. The worst thing we can do when waiting on a harvest is to quit. Maybe you’ve been waiting for weeks, months, or years. Don’t give up expecting. Don’t give up believing. A harvest will surely come if we stay faithful and we don’t give up.
Lord, thank you that my harvest is on its way. I know your timing is perfect. I know that you will bring the harvest into my life in your perfect timing. In Jesus’ name, Amen
