“Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him.” (Gen 26:12)
How do you know that the Lord has blessed you? How about receiving a hundredfold return on your capital or labor? I think that would be a good sign that God’s hand is on us at work. That is a one million–dollar return on a ten thousand–dollar investment.
If God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, He is more than able to bless you in this way. Is it presumptuous to ask Him to bless us in this way? Do we believe He is willing and able to bless us?
God wants to bless us as we move in faith and expectation to receive what He has planned for us. When we do this, our lives will bear the mark of God’s blessing.
Quick Prayer: Can I dare to ask for a hundredfold blessing? Is this Your will for me? Amen.
“He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.” (Pro 10:5)
There is wisdom in understanding the season you are in. There is a time to reap and a time to sow; other times are winter, where nothing seems to happen and patience is required.
The responsibility we have in summer is to reap the harvest. We can be in different seasons in different areas of our lives at the same time. Discerning what season we are in is important. There is no point in sowing in winter.
There are financial harvests, spiritual harvests, and even relationship harvests. What season are you in now, and what area is ready for harvest? We have to be diligent and aware, for the season of harvest is short and temporary.
Quick Prayer: Help me to bring in the harvest. I commit to bringing it all in and using it wisely. Amen.
