Devotions based on Mark Buchanan’s book, Spiritual Rhythm

We are now on to the Fall season which is a time of harvest. Spiritually it is a time for thanksgiving, a time to acknowledge God’s provision and faithfulness. Like the author wrote it is a time to reap what we’ve sown.

When we prepare well it is an expectant time since we have sown and planted and now wait in hope.  If we have not prepared well it is a time of disappointment.  Just as a farmer sows a certain kind of seed and expects that kind of a crop, so we should expect to reap what we have sown.  We either sow to please our sinful nature or we sow to please the Spirit. We have the choice. We can nurture the little seedlings of the Spirit’s promptings-prompting us to be a person of peace, gentleness, self-control, love etc.  Or we can sow to the flesh. .we are tempted every day ….every interruption, every criticism, every irritating person we meet etc. Our spirits and our flesh are at war. What we sow is what we grow! 

Let us go the way of the Spirit and sow the seed that will conquer evil and overcome it with good.  More tomorrow
