Sometimes the things that count the most seem to take the longest to get here.
Some giant sequoias in California are 300 feet tall. That’s the height of a 30 story building! Yet each one began with the smallest of seeds that grew and matured since before the time of Christ! That’s a long time.
You may say you’re going to serve God, and then you start to do something for Him. But when you don’t reap a harvest immediately, you get discouraged. Don’t try to hurry the harvest. In due season, you will reap.
Have you shared Christ with people and yet they haven’t been saved? Look at Isaiah 55:11 — “So shall My Word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
And Romans 10:13 says, “Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Receive His encouragement today.
