Focus verses: Psalm 127
God, in fact, is the sovereign of the universe. Nothing happens to surprise Him.
When we are disobedient, He allows us to reap the fruit of our own actions.
When we are obedient, He allows us to reap the fruit of our own actions.
If you are a farmer, you know that when you plant a seed, you reap the same kind of plant you sowed. You don’t plant wheat and get corn. If you plant wheat, you reap wheat. If you plant corn, you get corn.
As a farmer, you also hope to get more than you planted. If you plant a bushel of wheat on each acre, you don’t want to reap just one bushel off each acre. Some years you get thirty bushels, some years you get fifty. And on a really good year, you get a hundred bushels an acre. (Are you hearing echoes of Matthew 13:23?)
If you are hoping for a bumper crop, wouldn’t it pay to plant the seed God had in mind?
Remind us that You are the author of all good, that we can do nothing good without You. Keep us close under Your guiding hand in all we say or do.
