The Field of Glory

God has a word for you today to persevere in the field He’s placed you in. He wants you to reach the people in it for His glory. Be assured today, you’re right where you should be as you yield your ambitions because of the Father’s love for the field. He would say to you, ‘know My love and you WILL produce My glory in this, your field!’ God has you right where He has you to be effective! Without His glory your crops will fail and there is no harvest. God desires to see the glory of His field in full bloom because it is His desire that you be fruitful and multiply. Jesus says, ‘lift your eyes on the fields white unto harvest’. My heart was reassured recently, that if I’d just live for Him and not resist, I’d get the love of His heart and He would allow me a window into what He sees and how His heart breaks because of how He loves. I looked up to see a child and thought of my own and my love for them and began to understand the Father’s love for others. The love of God and relationship with Him produces glory. It’s not so much what you do, but it’s who you become. My son can’t really do anything to be my son, he IS my son and everything he does is a reflection of me. Put into perspective, God says you are to be a reflection of Me, so where is your glory? You are like a mirror reflecting what you are looking at, so what are you looking at? God says, ‘know my love and behold the man Christ Jesus the son of my love, then you will be a reflection of My love for others.’ When you see Him, you’ll weep for your foolishness because it robbed you from people in danger with no one to sound the alarm…no one to show forth the glory. He lovingly says to you again and again, ‘I’m your glory, I am all you need and in my unfailing love, I will have you to be the bold light of the field.’  Our prayer today…‘God give us the beat of your loving heart and show us the field of glory!’

The Rain That Brings Harvest

God says, ‘If you love Me and serve Me with all your heart, I will send the early and late rain bringing the necessary provision to finish the work of harvest in these times’ (Deut. 11:13-14). We live in difficult days, yet glorious days when you consider the Master commands a harvest. He presides as Lord of the harvest urging our service as His followers.  In James 5:7-8, He says to you in these days, ‘be patient brethren until the coming of the Lord’. The reference to brethren is a reference to kinship and friendship; if you care to receive it, is a call to discipleship. It is a call to follow the things that drove the ministry of Jesus. In these two verses he says, consider the farmer and be like him.  What about the farmer you ask?  He is waiting on the precious produce of the soil with a vested interest in the field.  These verses remind us the coming of the Lord is at hand, and that we should find ourselves committed to the produce of His field.  Like the parable of the talents says about His return, He will be looking for your produce.  He is not coming back so you can show Him your stuff.  His return will be all about souls and what you’ve done with the seed He gave you.  Jesus said, ‘lift your eyes and look on the  fields white unto harvest’.   Right now, amid perhaps, the greatest mixture of Christianity and darkness the world has ever known, there is a harvest waiting.  However, one can only reap by being a friend of Jesus as John 15 states.  He is saying, ‘I chose you, I appointed you to bear fruit, I appoint you to a harvest’.  ‘Understand the season of my return is near, I’ve given the early rains, but it’s the latter rain that ushers in harvest.’  The body of Christ need remind herself and be encouraged that the rain of God’s blessing for harvest comes to a people–to a whole hearted people– who have lost themselves and yet been found, in a place of prayer.  Praying with expectatation, they are looking to be found faithful in their work with a complete dependance upon the Lord who sends the rain that brings harvest.  Do you understand the signs of the times?  Have you heard His call?  Let’s pray for eyes to see His field and for the rain that brings harvest.
