Love you all, praying for you.
God is refining how I think.
God's Word - The Bible - has a subject: It's Jesus. But also, His Word has a theme: His goodness, our obedience, His blessing, fruit that lasts.
Psalms 67:4-6 May the nations be glad and sing for joy; for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth. May the peoples praise you, O God, may all the peoples praise you. Then the land will yield its harvest, and God, our God will bless us.
All people’s – that’s me. Be glad and sing for joy… that can only happen when you walk in His ways, and His plans for you. (Anything else is just temporary happiness – fleeting.) If He rules in your life, He will rule justly, He will bring justice for you. His decisions in your life and good and right. You can trust Him. Even in things you do not understand… What is ‘not understanding’ anyway? - Wanting or expecting something different than what He has right now, or allowed in this season or situation.
Careful… Sometimes our diligence (Strategy or Effort) was insufficient for our expectations. That’s not God’s decision in your life, that’s just gravity. Either way, you can trust Him for what He decides, and ask for His wisdom to grow you so your actions better enable your expectations. His ways will help you! He will tell you His way of doing things that yield the best results.
But also… Praise brings harvest! He inhabits praise, it evicts the enemy, but it also brings harvest. When God tells us to praise, it’s not for His benefit! Even the rocks and trees praise Him, all creatures in heaven and earth… so it’s not for Him… Our habit of praise has multi-fold purpose. God says it is a key to harvest.
What is harvest? Not natural blessings or abundance. That’s just cause and effect of obedience and diligence. He promised provision anyway. The only true harvest is seeing others obey and experience God’s blessing for them. No greater joy than that! That brings joy like nothing else can! Harvest is always Kingdom growth. Where the King has dominion and “obeyers getting blessed” are multiplying. That is great joy! Eternal, not temporary.
Praying that you will walk in His ways that bring you success, Praying that you will trust Him and His decisions in every season of your life, And that you would Praise like the Harvest you want to see, depends on it.
