PSALM 126:5-6 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
6. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.
I planted 2 tomato plants this year. I expect to get tomatoes, not apples or watermelons. We know there are no mistakes when you plant a seed. You know you will reap some fruit if your plant is healthy and survives any storms that may come.
We should have that same positive understanding with our prayers. If we are praying for something that we know is positively God’s will, there should be no doubt that we will get our answer. And if there is no doubt, there will come a peace that passes all our understanding.
If we truly believe that we are going to reap what we pray, we would pray everyday without fail.
We are like trees. They have very big, and strong roots, If we spend any amount of time in unforgiveness, a root of bitterness will form and affect your life and others that are around you. These bad roots will choke out the good roots. So we too reap what we sow in our heart. If we spend a lot of time in anything we will reap whether good or bad.
The scripture here is speaking about the joy of harvest. There are lessons here for us to learn.
Galatians 6:7-9 says that God will not be mocked. Whatever we sow on this earth is what we will get. That is the justice of God. All will eventually be known. And everyone will get what is just and right.
I will enjoy eating fresh, vine ripe tomatoes very soon. What will you be eating?
SUBJECT — WEEPING TO REJOICING — SPURGEON
See, how Christ honors those who honor Him. How love draws our beloved. How it needs but one word of His to turn our weeping to rejoicing. How his presence makes the heart’s sunshine.
