Lessons from Farming with God

Published on 9/12/2015
For additional information  Click Here

A farmer plows his field, sows the seed, and fertilizes and cultivates - all the while knowing that in the final analysis he is utterly dependent on forces outside of himself. He knows he cannot cause the seed to germinate, nor can he produce the rain and sunshine for growing and harvesting the crop. For a successful harvest, he is dependent on this things for God.

Yet the farmer knows that unless he diligently pursues his responsibilities to plow, plant, fertilize, and cultivate, he can not expect a harvest at the end of the season, Is an sense h is in a partnership with God, and he will reap its benefits only when he has fulfilled his own responsibilities.

Farming is a joined venture between God and the farmer. The farmer cannot do what God must do, and God WILL not do what the farmer should do…” From the Preface of the book “The pursuit of Holiness” by Jerry Bridges…

Wow - I thought reading that. That’s the story of my business - maybe yours too?...

We can’t control the outcomes. We can only control our actions….

It doesn’t matter if your business model is there are certain things that you can do to increase your odds of success and you probably know most of them. The rest is up to God but the odds are in your favor if you choose to do your part.

A few of my own thoughts...

Take massive action

That’s a lesson from the farming industry. We can’t expect to plant a few seeds and get a great harvest...

Pay attention to the crop

What does “fertilize and cultivate” look like in your business? Be sure that you are doing it…

Trust in God

He’ll do his part if we do ours. If our products/services are something people need and want and we put forth the effort the rest WILL fall in place. BELIEF in the outcome lubricates the process and enhances the outcome. Doubt does just the opposite.

Colossians 3:23  is one of my favorite verses from the Bible

There are many translations but my favorite is “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men

Then let God do HIS part - He’s very good at it :)

Greatly blessed - Highly favored and eternally grateful
