“But He also turns deserts into pools of water, the dry land into springs of water. He brings the hungry to settle there and to build their cities. They sow their fields, plant their vineyards, and harvest their bumper crops. How He blesses them! They raise large families there, and their herds of livestock increase.”
Psalm 107:35-38 NLT
Psalm 107:35-38 in the Message Bible reads, “Then He changed wasteland into fresh pools of water, arid earth into springs of water, brought in the hungry and settled them there; they moved in—what a great place to live! They sowed the fields, they planted vineyards, they reaped a bountiful harvest. He blessed them and they prospered greatly.”
Life has its challenges. You may be going through the wilderness right now. The media wants you to believe that things are only going to get worse. Things are being shaken. But we focus our life on our Father’s economy and not the world’s. We build our lives on the things that are eternal. Matthew 6:20 in The Message Bible says, “Don’t hoard treasure down here where it gets eaten by moths and corroded by rust or—worse!—stolen by burglars. Stockpile treasure in heaven, where it’s safe from moth and rust and burglars.” The world wants to convince you to hang on to what you have and God’s economy challenges you to sow even in hard times. Psalm 126:5 tells us, “Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. NASB.” When you sow, sow with expectation. Sow believing that God is going to bring a great harvest. Remember that He is able to do exceedingly, abundantly beyond all that you could ask or think. He is able, trust Him. He is a big God with big provision!
