Monthly Partner Letter – August 2018
This season of harvest has been a learning process for me. I am learning to appreciate the process. I am learning peace in the process. And, I am learning patience. The Bible says let patience have its perfect work so that in the end you will perfect lacking nothing. (James 1:4)
This learning process began with God telling me, “harvest is calling, will you go?” He was saying to me…our harvest is here. However, there is work to be done to bring it in. Will you do the work?
That means we will pray when He calls us to prayer. Even if it is not convenient. We will give when He says, even if we don’t want to. In other words, whatever He says do, we will do it.
He then gave me a dream about the two eggs. Within those eggs were fully developed chickens. I know something is breaking out in our lives, even as you read these words!
He showed me through the dream that a hen represents one who gathers. Oh my friends! It is time for us to gather in our harvest!
Proverbs 6:8 says; Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest.
Proverbs 13:11 says; Wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished, but he who gathers by labor will increase.
Therefore, we see in both the natural and the spiritual, gathering is a vital part of harvest. If there is harvest in the field, we should not have to be told to gather, it should be instinct…as with the ant.
If we don’t gather…during harvest time…harvest time will pass, and we will have to wait for another season.
How do we do gather? With the words of our mouth. With HIS word coming out of our mouth!
In the book of Genesis, God spoke our world into existence. Jesus spoke to Lazarus and he came forth. Jesus told us in Mark 11:23, to speak to the mountain and it would obey us. He said, if we believe and speak, we will have what we say. It’s time to gather in our harvest with the words of our mouth!
Finally, He reminded me that harvest is such a short, short season. And that season is here, now. I believe that with all my heart. YOUR harvest is here…it’s time to gather…to call it in.
We are standing with you and calling it in. We are gathering together. Friends, we will feast together. It’s time! It’s harvest time!
