You work yourself to death. You spend so many sleepless nights. You shed blood and tears. Still, you're not achieving the results you want to see. You still don't seem to get any closer to your dreams. Then, you get discouraged and think about giving up.
Today, God is reminding us that all our hard work will come into fruition we do not know how and we do not know when. He is doing something even when nothing seems happening. We just have to keep working, keep planting, keep believing, and keep trusting. The work is up to us, but the growth is up to God.
Jesus said, “This is how it is with the kingdom of God; it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land and would sleep and rise night and day and the seed would sprout and grow, he knows not how. Of its own accord the land yields fruit, first the blade, then the ear, then the full grain in the ear. And when the grain is ripe, he wields the sickle at once, for the harvest has come.” – Mark 4: 26-29 NAB
