Thought for the week by pastor Diana Rutherford

by Struthers Cumbernauld

'Whoever watches the wind will not plant; whoever looks at the clouds will not reap.' Ecclesiastes 11:4

In these days of the harvesting of souls we must be prepared to work in all weathers.
Whoever watches for the wind and clouds will never have the harvest they have prayed for.
We must be about our Father's business at every given opportunity. We must be in prayer, looking for opportunities and seeking to help others as long as our good Lord gives us strength.
If you have ever lived and worked on a farm you'll know that during the harvest all hands are at work, from oldest to youngest. Why should it be any different with God's harvest? We can't expect to lounge around and wait for a harvest to just appear. We must be occupied as often as we are able with the work God has given us to do.
One day we will stand in eternity. We will give an account of our actions, our pastimes and prayers. Only that which has been done for His glory will last, all else will fade!
Make sure you use the time wisely.
Look for an opportunity this week to pray for someone and to share your faith. If we pray faithfully we will be surprised how quickly He answers. Then, suddenly, we will be busy bringing in the harvest for His glory.
