The Harvest Is Plentiful -Matthew 9:37

The Harvest is Plentiful Matthew 9:37

In Matthew 9:37, Jesus tells us the harvest is plentiful. But what does that mean? In this devotional, we’ll read the words of Jesus and discover the true meaning behind this important scripture.

What does Matthew 9:37-38 mean?

Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.  Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

                                                Matthew 9:37-38 NIV

This time of year, we talk about the harvest a lot. Instead of the old-fashioned vegetable picking and gathering, it’s become a fun celebration of the fall season.

And in church, we read this Bible verse about the harvest each autumn. But do we really take the time to understand what Matthew 9:37-38 means in our lives?

Let’s look deeper into it and find the true meaning behind the message Jesus gives us in this verse.
                                                                     

The harvest is truly plentiful

The harvest represents the people in our lives God wants us to share the gospel with.

But sometimes it’s easy to think there isn’t anyone left to witness to. We surround ourselves with others who are like us and mistakenly think they are already saved.

However, when we take a closer look, we can see there are so many people in our lives who need Jesus.

They may be co-workers, friends, or even members of our own family.

In His wisdom, God has placed us where we are in life for a reason. And He put these people in our path for us to tell them the good news of salvation.

This is our mission field. And we don’t need to go to a far-off land to find it.

My pastor likes to call it “a divine appointment”. An unexpected moment to talk about our beliefs and share the love of Jesus.

Jesus called it “a harvest”. And He said there are plenty of people ready to hear the truth about Him right now.

There is always someone who needs Jesus! And if we’re willing to look around for even a minute, we’ll see the harvest is truly plentiful.

The laborers are few

The problem isn’t that there is no harvest to gather and bring into the barn.

Instead, the problem is a labor shortage on God’s farm.

With the sheer number of people who claim to be a Christian, you’d think there would be a bountiful, almost unlimited amount of laborers available to share the gospel message.

But the reality is, the workers are few because we choose for it to be that way.

We avoid the work of God’s Kingdom and abandon the mission of the harvest before its even begun.

Why? Because it’s hard work.

How will they know if we don’t tell them?

Everyone needs a Savior! But how will they know about Jesus if we don’t tell them?

How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard?

                                               Romans 10:14 NKJV

For most people the idea of “witnessing” is scary.

And I agree, it can be a daunting task.

We get caught up in our head wondering… Will they think I’m crazy? Will they make fun of me? What if they ask questions? Will I be able to answer them?

Our minds are filled with doubt about our ability to be an effective witness.

But as Christians, we are commanded by Jesus to take the gospel to the people who need to hear it.

The Great Commission

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

                                              Matthew 28:18-20 NKJV

This is a command from our Lord Jesus Christ, to take the truth of His gospel to all people. Because we all need to be saved.

But it is also a promise to us. Jesus will never leave us, even when the going gets tough. He is with us when we fail and when we succeed in the mission.

So, we need to ask ourselves, are we willing to step out of our comfort zone and follow the command of Jesus? Are we willing to take hold of this great promise knowing He is with us even to the end of the age?

What if they don’t believe?

It’s hard when we feel like the person we’re witnessing to won’t believe. When that happens, Jesus says…

If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.

                                                Matthew 10:14 NIV

There have been times in my life when the person I was witnessing to would not accept Jesus.

I thought they were hard-headed and couldn’t see the plain truth in front of them. I felt discouraged and like I was not being a very good witness.

But Jesus is telling us that some will believe in Him, and others won’t.

We just need to keep telling everyone we meet about Him and then the next person, and then the next.

It’s not up to us whether they become a Christian or not. We don’t have the power to make anyone believe. Only the Holy Spirit has the power to call people to Himself. And ultimately, it’s their decision to follow Jesus or not.

But it is our job to tell them the gospel, to pray for them, and to disciple them if they decide to accept Jesus as their Savior.

Leave everything else to the Holy Spirit.

And if you witness to someone and they don’t believe, shake the dust off and keep going. There are plenty of lost souls left to harvest.

Pray to the Lord of the Harvest

We hear Matthew 9 echoed in the book of Luke.

 

Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.

                                                     Luke 10:2 NKJV

In this gospel, Jesus says the harvest is great. And His message couldn’t be any clearer… Our mission field is wide open and ripe for the picking. All we need to do is pray for the Lord of the harvest to send us out as His laborers.

So, let’s pray for the Lord to send us out into the mission field He has for us and be ready to share the gospel with someone today.

The harvest is plentiful, ripe, and ready!

If you’re still worried about being a laborer on God’s farm… All you need to be an effective witness is a willing heart. God will give you the right words to speak. And He will bring to remembrance the right Bible verses at the right time.

Your mission field is right in front of you and your harvest is ripe for the picking! So, don’t be scared to share the gospel with someone. Jesus is with you.

My prayer for you today is that you will see the harvest is plentiful and be encouraged to join the mission field today.

May God bless you in your pursuit of His harvest today and always! And may you reap a great reward!

Give Thanks to the Lord -Psalm 107:1

Give Thanks to the Lord Psalm 107:1

There are many examples of thanksgiving in the Bible. And each one shows us how to give thanks to the Lord.

During this Thanksgiving holiday, we’ll gather with the people closest to us around a table of glorious, delicious food. We’ll tell stories about the past and share memories of everything that has happened in our lives this past year.

But it’s equally important to give thanks to the Lord and remember His loving kindness during this special time. God is good and He gives us so much to be thankful for.

So, in this devotion, we’ll look at some Bible verses about how to give thanks to the Lord with a grateful heart.

Let’s start with one of my favorite thanksgiving scriptures, Psalm 107:1…

What does Psalm 107:1 mean?

 

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
his love endures forever.

                                         Psalm 107:1 NIV

A few years ago, I was sitting in a lady’s Bible study when a young woman shared something that changed my life.

She recited a quote you’ve probably heard before…

“What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?”

I thought about this quote for several days and decided I needed to start thanking God for everything I have today.

It’s easy for me to dream about tomorrow or get caught up in all of the things I wish I had.

But God is good to me right now and I need to show my gratitude for all He does in my life every day, not just one day a year.

Because a little bit of thankfulness goes a long way.

Imagine if you did everything for someone and they never once said thank you.

It wouldn’t make for a lasting relationship. Over time you would lose interest in helping them and then you’d distance yourself from them too.

Thankfully, God isn’t like this.

And that’s what this verse from Psalm 107:1 is about.

The meaning of the phrase “his love endures forever” translates to “a loyal love”.

This is the kind of love God has for us. He is always loyal. And because He is, no matter how we act, He always loves us and promises to care for our needs.

But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give thanks to the Lord for His goodness and all He does for us every day.

What are we thankful for?

After pondering this quote, I began thanking God each night for the things He gives me today that I don’t want to live without tomorrow.

Here’s a list of some of the things I give thanks to the Lord for each day…

#1 Salvation

Where would I be if I didn’t have salvation in Jesus Christ?

I would be lost and condemned. So, salvation is definitely at the top of my list of things I can’t live without. And it’s the one thing I’m most grateful for.

#2 My Family

Every day I pray for God to take care of my family. I’m sure you do the same for yours too.

I always mentioned them in my prayers before and asked God to take care of their individual needs.

But now I simply say thank you to God for their presence in my life

This has made a big difference in my relationship with my family. I see them in a different light and recognize how thankful I am for each of them and the unique qualities they bring into my life.

#3 My home, food, car, clothes, etc.

Food, shelter, and water, are the necessities of life. And I certainly don’t want to live without any of them.

Especially food! Who wants to go hungry?

With the bounty of Thanksgiving, this basic of daily life may be overlooked, for so many, it’s an everyday struggle.

God has always been faithful to provide for my family. We may not be millionaires, and we may not have everything we want. But God has always made sure we have what we need. And I am very thankful for His generosity!

#4 My Country

What a privilege it is to live in a country where I am free to worship God! I am so grateful for the opportunity to live in a nation where I can express my views and practice my religion without fear.

#5 Answered Prayers

Like everyone, I ask God to do certain things for me. And then when He does them, I conveniently forget He has just answered my prayer.

So, I’ve started thanking Him in the moment for each answered prayer.

But I also want to remember in my nightly prayers, to say thank you again because I am truly grateful He has heard my cry for help and cared enough to answer.

There are usually a few other things that happen throughout the day I give thanks for. But this list represents the things I don’t want to live without the next day.

Learning to give thanks to the Lord has had a huge impact on my life and my relationship with Jesus. Because of the simple act of saying thank you, my prayer life has grown and my attitude has changed.

So, How do you give thanks to God?

In answering this question, two scriptures come to mind. In each one, we learn a different, but equally important aspect of how to give thanks to God.

In everything Give Thanks

 

in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

                                    1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV

As we gather around the Thanksgiving table, we’ll talk about all of the wonderful things that have happened over the past year.

And we should be thankful for them. God has done so much for us!

But this verse is about being grateful in all things, both good and bad.

Why?

Because in Romans 8:28 we learn… all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

God has the power to turn something we see as bad into something amazing. He causes all things to come together in the end for our good.

This is the hand of God intervening in our life when we least expect it. And With His touch, and through the work of the Holy Spirit, God can bring good into what seems like a terrible situation.

So, if you’ve suffered a loss this past year, remember… in everything give thanks. And know even in the bad, God’s will in Christ Jesus brings glory and honor to Him.

Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

 

I will give thanks to you, Lord, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

                                                 Psalm 9:1 NIV

To truly give thanks to the Lord, it needs to come from the heart. Not just a little bit of our heart, but all it.

The lyrics of the great song Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart say…

Give thanks because He’s given
Jesus Christ, His Son…

This is the greatest gift we could ever receive. And a heart full of praise for the gift of God’s Son is the greatest gift we can give back to God for this sacrifice.

When we tell of this wonderful deed, we are giving thanks with a grateful heart just like the song and this scripture tell us to do.

What are the 3 things you are thankful for this Thanksgiving?

This November, instead of focusing on what I don’t have, I choose to focus on what God has blessed me with already.

That gratitude has changed my way of thinking and my outlook on life. God is good. His love endures forever. And learning to give thanks for His loyal, unfailing love has made me feel closer to God in so many ways.

After reading the list of things I’m thankful for, I’m sure you have some thoughts of your own. And I encourage you to write a list of at least 3 things you are thankful for this Thanksgiving.

I hope it will help you in some small way to grow your relationship with Jesus.

My prayer for you today is that you will see all the wonderful things God is doing in your life right now, give thanks to Him, and be blessed with a grateful heart.

May God bless you greatly as you give thanks to the Lord!

And if you would like to leave your list of the 3 things you’re thankful for in the comments, I would love to know what God is doing in your life. Plus, I promise to answer back. 😊

Happy Thanksgiving!

Who keeps for us
The appointed weeks of the harvest.”

                               Jeremiah 5:24

Bible Verses about Leaves/Autumn Leaves

The significance of leaves in the Bible can be seen in these Bible verses about autumn. The freshness of green, new growth, to the changing of their colors, all the way to faded and wilted. Each phase of the leaf’s life represents the Christian life. Are we new and green? Or brown and decayed? The choice is ours.

 

They will be like a tree planted by the water
that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
and never fails to bear fruit.

                                    Jeremiah 17:8

 

They’re—

Puffs of smoke pushed by gusts of wind;
late autumn trees stripped clean of leaf and fruit,
Doubly dead, pulled up by the roots;
wild ocean waves leaving nothing on the beach
but the foam of their shame;

                                    Jude 12-13 MSG

 

And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.

                                 Matthew 21:19 KJV

 

down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.

                                   Revelation 22:2

Thankful Harvest quotes from Scripture

In Biblical times the harvest meant life. The gathering of food for an entire year after months of hard labor. It was a celebration of God’s goodness and provision.

These days, our idea of a harvest is a little different. It’s family gathering for a feast. Turkey and dressing and pumpkin pie, all laid out on the dining room table. Warm hugs and friendly conversation as we share our faith. But we still celebrate all God has done for us. His goodness and grace, and the way He provides so generously give us plenty to be thankful for.

As long as the earth endures,
seedtime and harvest,
cold and heat,
summer and winter,
day and night
will never cease.

                                   Genesis 8:22

 

He who gathers in summer is a wise son;
He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.

                                    Proverbs 10:5

 

Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.

                                     John 4:35

 

Those who sow in tears shall harvest with joyful shouting.
One who goes here and there weeping, carrying his bag of seed,
Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.

                                    Psalm 126:5-6

 

You have multiplied the nation
And increased its joy;
They rejoice before You
According to the joy of harvest,
As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

                                     Isaiah 9:3

 

As you can see there are many Bible verses for Autumn. Each one is a blessing worth celebrating. As you celebrate the beauty of this season through scripture, may the love of nature and the strength of God’s hand guide you this Fall and throughout the year.

The Beauty of Autumn Leaves Galatians 6:9 Devotional

The Beauty of Autumn Leaves Galatians 6:9 Devotional

In this Galatians 6:9 devotional we’ll see the beauty of autumn leaves and learn how to not grow weary in doing good.

It seems like a tall order to accomplish in one short Bible study, but with God’s help, we’ll see how in due season to reap the benefits of a life well-lived if we do not lose heart.

Autumn is a time of great change in nature. The carefree days of Summer have passed, and we look forward to a new season.

Here in the Ozark Mountains, the temperature is falling and soon the Master’s paintbrush will turn the leaves from green to brilliant red, orange and yellow. The colors are so vibrant and there’s a sense of excitement for the change ahead.

Fall is so beautiful! And since moving to Arkansas, Fall has quickly become my favorite season.

The color of the pretty fall leaves fills my heart with wonder as I breathe in the crisp autumn air. I revel in this brief moment of beauty God gives to us each year.

But Autumn is also a time for new obligations. The beginning of school for the kids, Sunday school and Bible study classes, football practice, the coming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and so much more.

We keep the wheels turning by taking care of our families, volunteering at church, and witnessing to those around us who are not saved.

And as much as we love doing all of it, these new commitments can leave us feeling stressed out and just plain tired. Sometimes, it can be a little bit overwhelming.

So, during this busy time of year, let’s seek a little inspiration from the words of Paul to the Galatians in this verse…

And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.

                                                       Galatians 6:9 NKJV

What is the meaning of Galatians 6:9? And how can we not become weary while doing good?

 

As women of faith, we endeavor to do what is right in God’s eyes. We want to do it all and be everything to everyone.

But the challenge for us is, to do good and not grow weary when life becomes hectic, or we start to feel like we’re being pulled in a lot of different directions.

In these times, the truth of this Bible verse becomes a source of encouragement for us. Because this one scripture has so much to say about how to get through these busy moments we all experience.

So, let’s take a closer look at each part of Galatians 6:9.

Let us not grow weary…

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed, discouraged, tired, and downright unappreciated.

In these moments, it’s easy to think no one sees the good work we do.

But God does see the effort we put in and He doesn’t want us to give up and throw in the towel.

Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

                                                   1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV

In doing good…

It’s true that good works do not save anyone. It is only the grace of God through faith in His Son, Jesus that offers salvation.

However, this verse and many others are quick to point out, we should want to do good and show the love of Christ through our actions if we are saved.

This begins with those closest to us. Then to other believers. Lastly, and maybe more importantly, to the ones God sends our way to be a witness to.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

                                                     Ephesians 2:8-10 NIV

 

In due season we shall reap…

Sometimes it feels like our “due season” is just out of reach or will never come.

But the seeds we sow today will determine what we reap in the future.

God has a plan, and He promises to reward us for all that we do in His name. His timing is different than our own. And with patience and perseverance, if we keep looking forward, our season to reap our reward will come.

 Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord’s coming is near.

                                                       James 5:7-8

Do not lose heart…

We may feel like we’re drowning in a sea of endless things to do. And we may feel down and out, but all is not lost.

God is on our side and ready to offer our hearts the encouraging boost we need for the voyage ahead.

But we must be willing to take hold of that encouragement and use it in a way that will cause us to not lose heart.

How do you not lose heart?

By fixing our eyes on Jesus. In the light of His glory, the struggles we face dim as we are renewed and restored each day.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

                                                      2 Corinthians 4:16-18

The beauty of autumn is undeniable.

And I hope this Galatians 6:9 devotional reminds you… just as God creates the beauty of the autumn leaves, He also wants to create beauty in our lives.

He understands we’re only human. And He knows we become tired and discouraged from time to time.

So, when we’re down, He wants to encourage us to forge ahead and to not grow weary in doing good. When we do, He promises we will reap the reward of a life well-lived.

During this time of great change in nature, I pray you will revel in the beauty God has put in your life today and the beauty in Autumn leaves!

Weariness is part of the curse, but I’m hiding in Christ with God (Col. 3:3) and learning to let Him to His thing through me.

Monday Motivation – Psalm 27:13

We all have times when it seems like all is lost and nothing good will ever happen again. But the goodness of God is always with us. In the good times, He is our champion, pushing forward to bigger and better things. In the bad times, He is our confidant and comforter, reminding us of happier memories and giving us the strength to keep going. So, if you are experiencing a downtime, don’t despair. Look up and see the goodness of God all around you. Blessings!

Monday Motivation – John 4:34

A little while back, God told me… “Do the work.” And the funny thing is, it takes a lot of work to do the work! 😊 For us, Christians, It’s not enough to simply know the will of God. We must also do the work God has given us. That’s exactly what Jesus was talking about in this Bible Verse for Thanksgiving. He came to earth knowing the will of God the Father and to do the work of His kingdom. He’s our example as well as our Messiah. So, let’s follow His lead this Thanksgiving.

The first step is to seek God’s will in your life, pray and ask Him what He has for you to do. Then put into practice the will of God by doing the work. It can be hard. And it can be lonely. But the reward is great!

Praying you will have a rewarding and blessed Fall as you follow Jesus and do the work!!!

Monday Motivation – Proverbs 14:26

The book of Proverbs is often said to be an instruction manual for life. The central theme and the first bit of wisdom taught within its pages is to fear the Lord. That doesn’t mean to hide or tremble in fear, but rather to fully understand who God is. To be in awe of Him and His power. Once we understand the enormity of God, we are His children and He is our Father. Just like a father here on earth is obligated to love and protect his children, God promises us His love and protection. We have a safe home in Him and a place of refuge when life becomes too much. To fear the Lord is a wonderful thing because once you know Him you will never be the same!
