There is no question that our Creator knew what He was doing when He created us. While it may not make much sense to our simple minds, He chose to create us with both sufficiency and insufficiency. Every good gift comes from above. Gifts of the Spirit are not only the gifts that look good, they are the gifts that are designed to draw out good. They conform us to His likeness.
Since we are human, and He is God, we can assume His definition of “good gifts” may not always equate to our definition. We know that His ways are higher than our ways. Sometimes, the gift He gives, perhaps by way of rebuke or discipline, is not at all what we had in mind as “good”.
“Those who walk the fields to sow, casting their seed in tears, will one day tread those same long rows, amazed by what’s appeared. Those who weep as they walk and plant with sighs will return singing with joy, when they bring home the harvest.”-Psalm 126:5-6 (the Voice)
We all have something in our lives that is rubbing against us—that feels unfair or unwanted. But could it be that this “thing” which causes tears and sighs now might actually be the source of joy and praise in the days to come?
Every good gift comes from above.
I encourage you to proclaim that today. Make this truth your banner cry as you walk the field with tears streaming down. The harvest is coming.
