As I write this letter to you, I am feeling like I’m right in the middle, I’m getting my one arm pulled the one side and my other arm pulled the other side, because I am rejoicing for the rain that has fallen in the Karoo and in the Northern Cape and I am weeping for the devastation that has taken place through the floods and storms in KZN.
But the Bible tells us clearly in Galatians 6:9 (NKJV) 9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
We need to keep on keeping on; we need to sow our seed in the good times and in the bad times and eventually we will reap a good crop, and our biggest example for that, has to be Job, the farmer. Even though he lost everything, he continued to put his trust in the Lord and look what happened. At the end of his life, Job reaped double of what he lost and lived to see his great grandchildren. What a beautiful promise.
And so, we weep with those who are weeping, and we rejoice with those who are rejoicing. But the most important thing is that our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. The Lord never promised you and I, a bed of roses. What He did promise, was that He would walk with us through the fire, which He has done and through the floods, which He is doing and that ultimately, we will be victorious if we do not give up and we keep our focus on our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
Jesus bless you
