Don’t Quit, Reap Your Harvest! – by Alicia Briscoe

So, let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Galatians 6:9

The harvest has always been a beautiful and important part of life on earth, the time when the year’s work bears fruit, and the people are fed.


One of my favorite scriptures about harvest is Galatians 6:9. When I read this scripture, it gives me hope and encouragement to keep moving. Especially when you face challenging times and people. But when I meditate on this scripture, it reveals so much more. It is an opportunity to get in God’s presence to gain understanding during processing cycle.


It reveals in the practical sense that you are like a farmer that sow seeds and reaps a harvest. This concept leads to me asking questions like; “Am I sowing seeds?” “What kind of seed am I sowing?” “What kind of harvest am I expecting?”  These questions are valid because they will determine the cycle that takes place in reaping a harvest. We cannot expect a harvest if we are not sowing seed. Also, we must understand that the process varies from seed to seed.


If we are honest, we find ourselves getting impatient, frustrated and on the verge of giving up when we don’t see results. Or you have been intentional about sowing in a particular area or in someone’s life and the process seems to be nonexistent. We live in a society where we want what we want, and we want it now. We think when we plant seed it should produce a harvest immediately, not realizing that the process is the most important part of the harvest.


This scripture is about the sower and the reaper going through a process to get a good harvest. The process of development is taking place within the sower and the reaper. So don’t give up, don’t get weary, and don’t quit before reaping your harvest.
