God's ability for reestablishing life is outside our ability to grasp. Woodlands burn to the ground and can develop back. Broken bones recuperate. Indeed, even anguish and grief are anything but a long-lasting condition. Our tears can be seeds that will develop into a harvest of joy and happiness since God has the ability to deliver good things once again from misfortune. When we are troubled somewhere near distress, we should realize that our seasons of pain will end and that we will again discover joy and delight. We should be patient as we pause and wait upon God. God's most noteworthy harvest of eternal joy is coming.
In Luke 8:4-8, Jesus tells the parable of the four soils. Faithful Christians sow the seed of the Word of God, which comes from the grain silos of the Scriptures, the Holy Bible. The faithful Christian carries those seeds forth, wherever he or she may go, scattering the seed and planting the seed. It is not an easy job to perform.
Tears are seeds that can grow into God’s harvest.
There are often times of great sorrow in the Lord’s work, hence the “sowing in tears”. We should all be weeping for the lost souls that plague this earth. Have we truly been about God the Father’s business planting the seed? If the seed is not planted, it cannot bring forth fruit. It is precious seed because it was bought with a price, the Son of God, Jesus Christ, laid down his life so that mankind might have eternal life.
Sowing the seeds of love can bring about tears of sorrow for the Christian, either on account of their own deficiency, through the fear of defeat or the dread of progress. Those tears could be because of the hardness of the ground and the hardness of men's souls they have to deal with. The Christian “farmer” may have feelings of being inadequate, but the Lord is always with us (Matthew 28:20) and he will never leave us (Hebrews 13:5).
Is the seed still in the barn or have we taken it out for planting?
Have we been faithful to till the ground, stir up the soil, and prepare the ground for planting? Are we using our tools wisely and carefully, i.e., our testimony, how people see our Christian walk? do we plant the see and lay the foundation?
Do we nurture, feed, water, and take care of what and where the seed was planted, or do we deprive the soil of what it needs?
Do we gather the harvest or cut it down before it has had time to grow? Have we waited too long and now it has dried up and died?
There are plenty of people waiting to hear the Word. Do not make excuses, look around, we will find someone eager to listen to the Word of God. God will use us in one way or another or maybe in many aspects. We are to be prepared to work; we could be the one to lead someone to Christ. Do our part, till the soil, plant the seed, water it (nurture), then help gather them in. Never give up, Christ did not give up on us.
The soil must be plowed, the seed must be planted, the sprouts must be pruned, before the sweets can be picked.
