Whose path are you following? Your own, or God's? Sometimes we think we are on God's path when we are living right, doing all the right things, saying all the right things, going to church and feeling good about life. But are we really on His path for our life, or are we just comfortable in our own little world that we have created for ourselves?
A question we can ask ourselves is this, are we producing fruit for His kingdom? When was the last time we shared the gospel with someone? When was the last time we sowed into someone's life the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ? What are we sowing, if not the word of God? What type of seeds are we planting? What does our harvest look like? Just like Fall brings in a season of Harvest, what will you bring in this year?
Here are some words to live by, and to help you have a bountiful harvest this season.
Prov. 3 v 5-10......Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes, Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones. Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase. So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine......
Those verses cover it all, if you trust in the Lord and not yourself, He will keep you on the right path, so that you will be healthy, strong, and riches overflowing into your life. Your barns will not be empty but you will have more than enough to get through the cold Winter months, through Spring, and well into Summer, if you will trust Him and put your faith in Him and not your own abilities.
So when the cold and flu season come around, don't fret over it, just keep feeding yourself on the healing scriptures from the word of God. When the butane looks like it is going to run out, and the paycheck hasn't gotten there yet, trust in His word where He says He will provide, and you will stay warm, when the bones start feeling the cold and you feel like you can't move around good, read where He says trust in Him and feed on His word and depart from evil and He will bring strength to your bones.
In other words in all things Trust in the Lord and not in your own ways. Sow into His kingdom, and not just into your own world and watch your increases come and watch the fruit of your harvest grow.
And remember in all things give Praise and Thanksgiving unto the LORD!
Hope to see you on His path.
