An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Bringing in the Sheaves

(Psa 126:6 KJV)  He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

(Proverbs 6 also read)

I saw in this a reminder of the living hope that we have.  So often we are wading through the “Slough of Despond” and can’t see the rising shore ahead.  We go forth in struggle and endure in faith.  What keeps us going is that vision of the future rooted in our faith in God.

Here we see testimony to how our burden, a “bag” (4901) of “seed” (2233) can, and will, turn into “sheaves” (485).  We have a song we sing that implies bringing in the sheaves is the produce of evangelism.  Here it is the blessings of life in general.

So?  Hang in there.  Be faithful.  He will be.
