The soul of the sluggard craves and gets nothing, while the soul of the diligent is richly supplied.” ~ Proverbs 13:4

We, as a Church, tend to have a problem with those who thrive spiritually. Signs and Wonders follow them. Prosperity wherever they go. The sick are healed. The Spirit flows. We see these things, and we get upset. Why? Why do we feel some type of way when someone else is Spiritually rich? Is it because we are Spiritually poor?

How often to do we pray? How often do we seek after God? Is He the first thing on our mind and the last? Do we spend time with Him during the day? Do we read our Bible? We want to have such a strong spiritual connection with God, but we don’t want to for it. We want God to do all of the work, and we simply accept the benefits. A harvest with labor doesn’t exist. No matter how badly we want it to, it will never happen. We have to plant our own seeds. We have to water them, protect them, tend to them, and in due time the harvest will be ready. But a harvest will not come out of thin air.

If you don’t see a harvest, ask yourself these questions: Do I pray every day? Do I spend time with God every day? How much time do I spend with God? Do I take the time to read my Bible? How much time do I sit in the presence of God and wait to hear His voice? How often do I worship God? Do I only ask God for things, or do I give Him the thanks, praise, and honor He deserves?

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Plant.
