God Is Working

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 22, 2013

This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. Mark 4:26-27

God’s work is not rushed or rattled. He quietly gets things done. While man sleeps, the Lord neither sleeps nor slumbers. The effective work of the Holy Spirit is not bound by human efforts. Indeed, the Spirt softens the heart, so when the word of God is sown, it grows. There is a divine dynamic  taking  place that may seem delayed in its outcome. For example, a small child who  hides hymns in his precious heart, will result in  music to their ears as teenagers.

We do not always understand how or where God is at work, but we can be confident that His Spirit is on the move to grow His kingdom. He is at work in your work, since you have sown  seeds of integrity; He has harvested a culture of honesty. He is at work in your single adult life: since you have sown seeds of purity, He has harvested a relationship of respect. He is at work in your finances; since you have sown seeds of generosity, He has harvested a heart of joy.

Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them. Psalm 126:6

You may feel frustrated by  the lack of progress in your personal finances. If so, remain faithful in sowing seeds of wise stewardship, because God is at work growing good habits in your giving, saving and spending. Consequences from unhealthy money decisions that took years to accumulate, will take time to correct. However, the Lord is working, so surround yourself with wise money managers and loving friends who model generosity. Give your way out of worry.

God is working in the hearts of friends and family who do not know Jesus. You keep sowing a life of love and one day they may love to know the Lord. As you comfort those whose hearts have been crushed, plant the seed of their need for a Savior. Tragedy makes a mind teachable to spiritual truths. Each day scatter the seed of a committed life to Christ. The Spirit will grow those around you to be more like Jesus. His quiet work never ends,  one day it brings a holy harvest.

It’s not the one who plants or the one who waters who is at the center of this process but God, who makes things grow. 1 Corinthians 3:7, The Message

Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me the courage to sow Your seed and trust You for the harvest.

    I agree that the more seeds we grow at different times and in many ways, it will rip a great harvest in the lives of those we serve, and touch through the love of the Lord, in our lives.

    I love those words “We do not always understand how or where God is at work, but we can be confident that His Spirit is on the move…”

    I am the business owner of JustCBD Store label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to grow my wholesale side of company. I am hoping anybody at targetdomain can help me ! I considered that the most ideal way to do this would be to talk to vape stores and cbd stores. I was really hoping if anybody could recommend a reputable web site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Database with Email Addresses I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the most suitable selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
