”…Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let not your hands be idle, for you do not know which will succeed….” [Ecclesiastes 11:6]
A favorite verse of mine is this one from Ecclesiastes—this is faith at work. The passing of time like the passing of seasons must be trusted not counted upon today, but trusted to reveal its fruit in tomorrow’s season. Its covering is patience that has her perfect work and life is viewed as a river—a constant rhythm whose melody carries with it only that which is free and willing to risk the current.
A continual sowing or ‘doing’ the next right thing—in season and out of season—its ”… then the reaper will be overtaken by the plowman and the planter by the one treading grapes. New wine will drip from the mountains and flow from all the hills.” [Amos 9:13]
The fact of faith is that it cannot be proven it can only be lived. Its inspiration comes from the nature within the seed that is sown, the gift that is given, the joy that is shared and when the many hands that worked the fields gather the fruit the harvest proves the seed was sown—faith is a fact!
The fact of faith is a life sown and risen again in resurrection power—Faith claims the whole man and all that God’s grace can make him,” just as it claimed the whole of our Lord’s life. [Oswald Chambers]
