Sowing-weeping-rejoicing. May 4
He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
The promise of this verse is applied to each one in particular. Notice how it begins “HE” and we can add “SHE” anyone who will go out Sowing.
Listen to what Charles Spurgeon said about the promise of this verse: “He leaves his couch to go forth into the frosty air and tread the heavy soil; and as he goes he weeps because of past failures, or because the ground is so sterile, or the weather so unseasonable, or his corn so scarce, and his enemies so plentiful and so eager to rob him of his reward. He drops a seed and a tear, a seed and a tear, and so goes on his way. In his basket he has seed which is precious to him, for he has little of it, and it is his hope for next year. Each grain leaves his hand with anxious prayer that it may not be lost. He thinks little of himself but much of his seed, and he eagerly ask, “Will it prosper? Shall I receive a reward for my labor?” Yes, good husbandman, doubtless you will gather sheaves from your sowing. Because the Lord has written Doubtless, take heed that you do not doubt. No reason for doubt can remain after the lord has spoken. You will return to this field - not to sow, but to reap. Not to weep, but to rejoice”.
Lets go out today spreading the seed of prayer, witness, labor, obedience to Gods will for our life and we will Doubtless reap a harvest, rejoicing along the way.
