The farmer looks at a plot of land, but doesn’t see the thorns, briers, bushes, and weeds that cover it. He sees the land for what it will do, bear fruit. He toils from morning till dawn, pulling up the roots of anything useless and what will impede the growth of what will soon be planted. Stubborn rocks must be plowed out to make the land relent. Seeds are then able to be sewn. Even then, the process is not done. The seeds must be nurtured with water and light to burst out and grow. Water and light is still necessary for the plants to grow along with the nutrients in the soil. Then, in the right season, does it bear fruit. Consequently, there is the harvest. All of the work, the toil, the process was all done with this harvest in sight before it was actually able to be seen. Isaiah 55:8-13
No one said this was easy. I’m so thankful my God sees what’s in me even before I do and before anyone else does either.
