Sleeping, Rising and Reaping
Mark 4:26-27 (AMP) And He said, The kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed upon the ground, and then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases—he knows not how.
I’m gifted with sleep. A carefully developed sleeping system including special socks, pillow mist and even a sleep scripture combine to provide maximum rejuvenation in minimum time. But even I must admit there are times when thinking about the challenges of life hinder or delay the sleep I desire.
During those times I remember what Jesus taught about a man who scatters seed and continues sleeping and rising while the ground and the seed do what they naturally or super-naturally do.
It takes faith to keep on living your life when problems are staring you in the face, or circumstances are screaming in your ear. If we follow Jesus’ teaching we won’t stay up all night worried, or lay in bed all day depressed. Plant your seed by giving financially or speaking the Word of God over your situation. Do your part and trust that God’s system works. Keep sleeping and rising; your harvest is on the way.
Success and Progress!
