The Harvest

Habakkuk 2:3-4
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.>/em>

The harvest is coming. God’s appointed word and manifestations will not be delayed. These appointed or assigned times are signs of God’s agreement with us, that He is our God and we are his people. His Seasons are not governed by clocks and calendars, but seasons are governed by revelation and truth of God’s plan. Each season has a purpose and a people assigned to it. Appointed or ordained times operate in specific seasons.

The power of the Spirit is imaginative, inspired, inventive and innovative and productive or nothing would come into existence. It seems to me that this is an irrefutable truth about the Holy Spirit, because His purpose is to bring life into existence and to surround us with the resources and people to achieve what has been designed for us. The Holy Spirit intends for us to have life and have it in increasing abundance. Jesus stated, in John 10:10, The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

We are experiencing the movement of God’s Spirit. The glory cloud of the Holy Spirit is hovering over the sanctuary and we are experiencing His presence in praise, in worship, the word on Sundays and Life Application Bible Studies on Thursdays. This glory cloud also has to affect our everyday life and our daily existence. God is and will begin to bless us with those deep heart requests and prayers that we present before the throne has to also be answered.

A harvest has to take place. Blessings, approvals, permissions, go-aheads and miracles must be revealed and displayed. God is saying within life—our life, our being— this abundance has no boundaries, is everywhere at once, and is endlessly abundant. It is not just huge, it never stops. The nature of the Holy Spirit is always operating so as to expand. The Spirit is a forming power, always producing. It possesses the power, principle and law of increase with no limitations.

As you go about your daily business, be in expectation of your harvest. The seeds have been planted and the ground has been cultivated and is waiting for the harvester to come along. Live in a state of expectation. May God bless you as you sow and reap abundantly from your harvest.
