If you are in doubt, I assure you that God is on duty even during the sowing season when you are questioning when the time of harvest will arrive.
Let's begin with reading Proverbs 3:5-6, the focus of this message.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and He will make your paths straight.
Are you in a seed sowing season or a harvest season? No matter what season you are in and experiencing, trusting God is critical for ultimate growth and success.
Fact: When you are in the seed sowing season, what this year has been for me, you may feel unsuccessful. You may feel tired of doing all the things with what seems like minimal results. Stress and pressure, desperation, and frustration may feel like the norm. But during these times, it's important to recognize areas of growth and to trust that God is using this season to prepare you for the upcoming season of harvest.
During the seed sowing season do not fall into a negative mindset and the temptation to doubt the Lord. He never leaves you nor forsakes you. He's planted seeds and He's nurturing them - if you are letting Him. Where many of us go wrong is we don't trust and we don't submit ourselves and our businesses to Him and His ways.
The emphasis here is on never leaving you nor forsaking you - God is so serious about this that we can find the phrase in Deuteronomy 31:8 and Hebrews 13:5, in both the New and Old Testaments.
Remember His ways are the best ways. Here we can refer to Isaiah 55:8-9: “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
