        (06/25/2001) regarding the clouds
Hello prayer warriors,

1. Prayer note: regarding the clouds

[Ecclesiastes 11:4]
He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that
regardeth the clouds shall not reap.

I've been covering principles on sowing recently. I've
talked about not looking at circumstances or feelings
when deciding to sow. This verse also teaches us
another important principle and this is a harvest
principle: you need to WAIT for your harvest.

An important revelation for me was that there is a
season between sowing and reaping. If you want to
harvest, an important principle is the ability to wait
for the harvest.

Most of us are quitters. It's easier to quit. That's
probably because we are in the microwave and fast-food
age. Everything has to be quick or immediate. There is
a season. We need to understand that.

My father reminded me again about that principle
recently. He bought me another health supplement but
told me that it is not a miracle cure. However, taken
regularly, my immune system and my health will

I've had friends who have taken supplements only to
give up because they don't see any results
straightaway. Or maybe you've met people who took up
piano only to give up because they thought it was too
difficult. We find it easier to quit because we are
regarding the circumstances. We find it easier to quit
because we think the task is too great. Then we feel
frustrated and would rather our life continue in its
chaotic state. We let the clouds or circumstances
determine whether or not we get to reap our harvest.

It is like the farmer who looks at the field after he
has planted the crops and decides to give up because
he hasn't seen the harvest yet. You need to push
through for your breakthrough. You need to wait for
the season of your harvest.

[2 Corinthians 9:10]
Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both
minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed
sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;

We need to remember that He is the Lord of the
harvest. If you don't give up, in due season, you will
receive your harvest because His promises for us are
yea and amen and He is the Lord of the harvest. He is
the One who multiplies the seed sown. All we need to
do is to wait for His perfect time.

[Habakkuk 2:3]
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at
the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry,
wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not

The vision for God in your life will surely come, it
will not tarry. In other words, it will not be
delayed. God's time is not our time but His time is
always perfect. He is not one minute late or one
minute earlier. All He requires of us is to wait in
faith and in expectation, to do what is required and
to push through until harvest time.

[James 1:4]
.. let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be
perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
