John 4:35-Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.
Jesus stated these amazing words so long ago, but like all of God’s Word, the reality is true today. We look at our calendars and see our schedules quite full of events, vacations, deadlines, activities, and other precious or pressing moments ahead.
If there is a specific desire that has been within my soul it would be that the Lord send a harvest. I know to many this seems too simple, not a large enough request, or not tangible for some. The harvest my heart desires is greater than anything I can hold in my hands, and more profound than our language can describe. I seek a harvest from God for the souls of mankind to be saved by His grace. Truly, all of us who are saved know there is nothing better than the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ!
VBS, summer revival, church camp, are times I’m looking for God to send a harvest, but I’m also looking today for the blessing of His harvest. I’m not trying to be selfish, but I’d love to witness this harvest, I desire to see it. If I don’t, I’d certainly love to hear about it!
May God bless each of you as we prepare together for God’s blessings today. Oh Lord send the power just now. Revive us again! Send down the rain! Jesus, I humbly ask for you to convict, draw, and save souls at Oak Grove and everywhere.
