You reap what you sow

It's such a common phrase that we casually use yet most of the time failing to understand its gravity. Right now, the world demands instant gratification. No one wants to wait. No one has the time to wait. Waiting means foolishness. But here's a quote I saw few years ago:




"If you want to know how to be successful, think like a farmer. A farmer knows that he can not expect a harvest if he has not sown any seeds"


A lot of us see the harvest and the price at the end. Our eyes glued to what is to come failing to look down on what needs to be done.


Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with "eyes on the prize" but let me remind of this verse found in Psalm 119:105


"Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path"


The WORD wants us to see what's ahead but the WORD also encourages us to where we are and know how to get there.


Galatians 6:7 says "A man reaps what he sows."


God believes in process. He even went from Day 1 to Day 6 before resting.


That dream can happen. That aspiration can be achieved. But you got to start sowing seeds now. Be it through training, additional learning, accepting rebukes, volunteering, stepping out in faith or whatever that God specifically asks you to do.


Just sow...you'll reap it someday. Never never quit.


Challenges in Christian Life

Today, I learned that the biggest challenge we have is not the devil. After all, we're called to victory through Christ who gives us strength. I realized through our Pastor that the greatest challenge is to obey the WORD of GOD even through the challenging times. 

You would argue why and how can that be? Firstly, our carnal nature is naturally opposite to what GOD wants us to do. Secondly, it's called a test and a challenge precisely because they're not easy.

Thankfully, even throughout the challenge HE remains to be on his throne. He enables us to soar on wings like eagles. His only desire is to let the glory of GOD be manifested in our lives.

Check out this song from Hillsong that captures this message rightfully.


Hebrews 12:2 | Never Quit


Do you see what this means—all these pioneers who blazed the way, all these veterans cheering us on? It means we’d better get on with it. Strip down, start running—and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins. Keep your eyes on Jesus, who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed—that exhilarating finish in and with God—he could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s there, in the place of honor, right alongside God. When you find yourselves flagging in your faith, go over that story again, item by item, that long litany of hostility he plowed through. That will shoot adrenaline into your souls! (Hebrews 12:2 MSG)

Great is His faithfulness! They are new every morning!


Lamentations 3:22-24

New International Version (NIV)
22 Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed,
    for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;
    therefore I will wait for him.”
