In Genesis 8:22, God has written " While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease." If ever there was an assurance for farmers, this would be it, but that is not what I want to speak about here. What I want us to see, is that this is something that can apply to our very own lives and families.

It is not just for the earth that there is a seedtime and harvest, but for many other areas also.

Most Christians when they think of spring, always think of seeding, and the "New Birth", because things start to grow, and it seems that spring is so full of new life. But springtime is not the only time for planting seeds. Out west here, and I am sure in other places, farmers are planting things such as winter wheat. The wheat seeds in the fall, and grows to maturity in the spring and early summer. We also can see in other places around the world, that there are different planting seasons. Well, this same principle is true in our personal lives.

Most people do not even realize when they are planting seeds, and when they are going through a winter season physically, or emotionally, in their lives, and consequently they get "down" or "depressed", not realizing that there is a time for the seed to lie dormant in the ground before it sprouts. Hence, they feel like nothing is happening in their lives, nobody cares, they are all alone, and much more. As a result, they feel rejected, turn to drinking, drugs, and even worse, things such as suicide. What we need to see is that there is not a continual harvest of anything in this world, other than the Love of God.

It is only the love of God that is unlimited, and that you can draw on at all times. The people around you may not be rejecting you at all. It is just that they are going through a growing season also, and maybe they need to have you sow some love in their life. Galatians 6:7 says that we should not be deceived, whatever a man sows, that shall he reap.

Put the seedtime and harvest principle of God's Word into practise, and watch it work. If we are continually sowing good things into the lives of others, there will be a continual harvest of good things in our lives.

I was wondering how a man can stand up and speak for the life of an unborn baby, who happens to be a human being, and then take the life of two adults in such a vicious manner, who also happen to be human beings. My action against it should come through prayer, parliamentary changes to the law, and even peaceful demonstrations if I should feel led in that direction.


Lakeview Gospel Centre | Financial

I wonder sometimes how many people fall prey to the gimmicks that are used, and how much money is actually stolen through some of these contests from sincere people who are just looking for a little break in life. Oh, I know that there are winners in the lotteries, and in some of these contests, but I am sure that the companies, and the governments are not doing it just to give money away.

I know that there have been famines, and earthquakes, but the weather conditions have never been like they are today from what I have read, and there have never been the famines in the world that there are today. I know that people do not really want to here about some of these things, but we need to know that they were spoken about some 2000 plus years before by the Lord.
