Where is my Harvest?

Kathy — Some might be thinking, “Well, I’ve interceded for years. Where in the world is my harvest?” I believe it is possible to fail to recognize harvest. How many suddenlies and blessings to us or our families have we thought random, knowing we didn’t pray for them? Well, someone did! “We have not because we ask not.” (Js.4:2) So, if we do have — that means someone did ask!

Headed to Due Season

Kathy — The Greek word translated “due” in Gal.6:9 means a “personal and ReapingHarvestseparate” season or a time of processing unique to each person or unique to each situation. And it says that if we do not get spiritless and give up and pull away during processing, we will reap the full accomplished purpose of the time of trial. So we can understand God’s timing to be as long as it takes to complete His plans in us and for us! Gal.6:9, TPT — “And don’t allow yourselves to be weary or disheartened in planting good seeds, for the season of reaping the wonderful harvest you’ve planted is coming!

Guarding our Tongue

tonguehandholdWhile we are contending (Deut.2:24) for the word of the Lord over our lives and our nation, we must keep a guard on our tongue (Js.3:5) so that what it says lines up with what God has said (Jn.12:49). Like a farmer who works in his harvest and watches over his harvest, we cannot check out of the on-going process, lest we suffer crop failure.

Simple Obedience

Kathy — Obedience is not about being super-spiritual. No one has to be perfect to Praise man hands liftedwalk in purpose. Who can do what they were born to do solely out of their own abilities or strength or merit or worth anyway? We need the Lord and He is in reach. Psalm 84 tells us that God is there to give us grace (enabling) for now and favor for the future. Our part is simple obedience in response to the Holy Spirit’s promptings. That is the key to a harvest of God-results this year.  Invest in that harvest through obedience and prosper.

Success Manifest

HarvestFieldKathy — May the success He has already put in you come to full manifestation this year.  Please be encouraged that as you are prompted by the Holy Spirit, you can pray and move with the confidence that you are headed into a time of harvest and God-planned results.  Psalm 81 says, “if only you will listen and do as I say!  I, the LORD, would quickly defeat your enemies with my mighty power.”

Surrendered Son

In the passage of John 21:15-17 we see a time of critical change in the life of the church and Peter as an apostle. Peter had made a bold statement to Jesus prior to His arrest that he would go to prison and to death with Jesus (Luke 22:33). While his HandHeartintentions were noble, we all know that he ended up denying three times that he ever knew Jesus. Jesus is crucified, is raised from the dead, and is now searching for Peter. When He finds Peter, He asks him in verse 15, Simon, son of John do you love me more than these? Another translation is, Simon, son of John, is there ROOM in your heart for me?
In order for Peter to move forward into the harvest, he had to make ROOM in his heart for the love of Jesus. This is the Ephesians 2:4, great love wherewith He loved us kind of love. Peter had to make the decision to love Jesus more than himself and the things that represented his identity. He could not accomplish his assignment in God as anointed minister of Christ; he could only attain success by surrendering to a son. Jesus restored Peter by facilitating a change of heart from self-serving orphan to a surrendered son. —Larry Burden

Have you ever been praying and all of a sudden words fall out of your mouth that HarvestFieldstop you in your tracks because they came straight from your spirit? That happened to me recently while praying over our nation. I was praying about the deep-seated darkness being exposed, then I heard myself saying this, “Angels attend to the harvest.” I all of a sudden realized that I have had a particular paradigm about “harvest” and in that moment it was turned upside down. I realized in that moment that “harvest” to me has always referred to either people getting saved or financial blessing.  In that moment, I immediately knew it was time for the wicked to receive their harvest.  In other words, it is time for the wicked to reap what they have sown, and angels are seeing to that harvesting! (Melissa Gabler, first excerpt from “Reaping”) 

Don’t Give Up

As the people of God assemble today, may they not give up on the promises and enablements of God for them and may they not give up on one another’s promises, gifts and callings.  ”So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.” (Gal.6:9, Msg)

Don’t Die on the Vine

If we don’t seek the kingdom and His righteousness, we can die on the vine.  Dying on the vine means that fruit goes unpicked, food goes uneaten, harvest goes unrealized and destiny goes unfulfilled.  We can be connected to the vine and be on our way to heaven, yet not reach  fulfillment of purpose during our lifetime.  We can love God, yet go through life missing His direction and timing simply because we are not seeking the kingdom, not pursuing a relationship with Him.

It Is The Growing Season

SeedlingComingUpOn the way to church Sunday morning I noticed many plants coming up out of the ground.  From just a seed, they had pushed their way through the resistant soil.  That seed could not be seen down in the ground but it was there developing and pushing and coming up.   As the seed began to sprout, the tiny plant began to push and push toward the light.  There is an unseen pathway that leads from the seed to the surface of the ground where the light has drawn it so that it might grow, mature and bring forth the plant, the tree, the fruit that the seed had in it all along; it just needed to push along that unseen path and extend into the light to be able to release what was in it all along.  We are going to see seeds come forth that were planted in our lives, the lives of family members, friends, neighbors, coworkers, former church members. A seed came into existence to grow, not just sit and do nothing.  It is the growing season—expect the seed to grow.
“But as for that [seed] in the good soil, these are [the people] who, hearing the Word, hold it fast in a just (noble, virtuous) and worthy heart, and steadily bring forth fruit with patience.” (Lk.8:15, Amp)

Harvest With New Strategies



As the people of God assemble today may they look
upon the fields that are white unto harvest.
May they look upon them with love and compassion
and with new and effective strategies.

”Arise, O God, judge the earth;  For You shall inherit all nations.” (Ps.82:8, NKJV)

Harvest Is Still Coming

harvest by handThough tares threaten the harvest, the servants are restrained from going out and pulling up the tares and the tares are allowed to grow with the wheat but only for a specified time. The tares are allowed to grow with the wheat until harvest time. At harvest time, the tares must be removed first.

Tares have long been known to be harmful. They represent a detriment to the proper growth and harvesting of valuable wheat. Scholars have noted for us that the grain of the tare can cause dizziness and even death. It has a very similar appearance to that of wheat and has been used as a lesson of how the false can imitate the real while being destructive. But the harvest is still coming; it is still valuable. The Master still wants it, still plans for it, still uses it.

Time For Harvest

I declare that it is time for harvest in our lives, our churches and in our nation. It is time for harvest of that which has been long awaited–the victories that our Lord has been cultivating in us during times of trial, harvestpressing onward and endurance. We have not faced what we have faced and wrestled with what we have wrestled with and stood through testing for nothing. God has plowed and planted His Word into our lives. He has used people, circumstances and time to work His character into our lives. It will all yield its harvest in this age before the coming of our Lord. All the afore mentioned factors have been growing and maturing in us for a harvest that brings glory to Jehovah in this earth.

Marty brings an encouraging word in this 2 min. audio.
The Word of God is working in you!

God’s Word is working in us to improve us and increase us (Col 1:29). His Word is in you. His Word is a seed. A seed does not exist just to be a little round thing snuggled up in the ground. A seed exists to sprout, to push up out of the ground, to grow a stalk and put out leaves and blooms so that it may produce fruit and that fruit is meant to be of benefit to others. God’s Word is a seed in us and it is apples-on-treegrowing in us (Lk 8:11). A seed cannot stay as it is, it must increase (Jn 12:24). There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace…(Isa 9:7). The seed in the parable of the sower is the Word of God (Lk 8:11) and because the Kingdom government of Jesus cannot stay the same but must increase, that seed of His Kingdom must increase in us. It must increase in each of us so that it can affect our families, our churches, our communities and our nation. That’s why the seed is growing in us.
