“You have a saying, ‘Four more months and then the harvest.’ But I tell you, take a good look at the fields; the crops are now ripe and ready to be harvested!” (John 4: 35, Good News Translation)
Human observation with its sense testimony, doubts, and analysis of things, tends to be in waiting mode. We put conditions on accepting what is rightfully ours, living fully, with wholeness, well-being, and with the fruitfulness that multiplies so that we can share it with the world.
Are you pushing your joy, your health, your satisfaction into the future? Are you, perhaps, waiting on people or circumstances to line up in a perfect way before you begin reaping the good that is yours to experience? Or are you, maybe, hiding your light or your awareness of the healing Truth from others because you believe you don’t have enough understanding or ability to share? Are you too focused inward to realize the world is waiting to feast on the very crop that God has been cultivating in you?
Take a good look at your fields! They are ready now! God didn’t form an incomplete idea or ask us to wait for later or for the after-life, so-called, to enjoy and share His blessings. There’s nothing wrong with patience, but take a conscious pause to let your spiritual senses tell you what’s really going on. Am I waiting to share and express and claim goodness because I am looking to the senses and to human judgment for my information? Am I hiding my light out of fear I will fail?
Or, on the other hand, am I hearing the voice of God within me and seeing His vistas of blessings before me, proclaiming His readiness to be harvested, enjoyed, shared—not four months or four days in the future, but right here, right now!
