Sow the Seed of God’s Word

On a hot summer day in Africa this old man drew my attention. Often these rare moments in time were presented as I walked about the villages. Day by day I waited on God to lead me to those who were hungry for the truth of the gospel. The old man in this photo was preparing to sow seeds in his field. The scene inspired me to meditate the idea of sowing seed of God’s Word along the way I traversed. I realized I would have to sow, then simply move onward as I waited for God to bring the rain (spiritual rain of course) and then wait upon the harvest. There are times when we simply have to trust God, not our own abilities and resources. These quotes written in a moment of meditation pressed me onward.
“Greatness is found in those who step out beyond themselves.”
“Adventure awaits those who stretch their faith to obey God’s commands.”
“We set limitations only if we do not take the first bold faith step out the door.” 2003 Dale (Tig) Davis
Helen Keller, a bold yet blind woman once said, “Unless we form the habit of going to the Bible in bright moments as well as in trouble we cannot full respond to its consolations because we lack equilibrium between light and darkness.” “Security is mostly superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.” Her quotes so inspired me I risked what others thought and the possible danger that might lay ahead. I had to obey the still small voice of God to take the gospel in places where some thought me mad to go. I must tell you seriously however, God prepared me for this work many years before He sent me. He taught me many lessons, He knew my heart to obey Him, God knew I would not take to the road without His command, nor just go to go; He knew me that I would obey His voice and only His voice. Wisdom learned and gained guided me. Angels were with me and I leaned on the Lord and His promises.
You cannot do or take the risks I took without walking in constant prayer, preparation, boldness, and the knowledge of God’s Word. One of my greatest desires is to inspire others and to share this message. “There is a destiny lurking in you waiting for the moments you rise in faith to take hold of the call on your life.” Dale (Tig Davis)
I will close now with this powerful scripture. Isaiah 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shall not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.
There are many evils walking among us in the world today. The spirit of depression hangs heavy over America and the world. Take heart my friends, God is with us. As we must learn His Word and stand strong in faith, then we can roar like the lion with the courage that comes from God above.
Stand on God’s Word, then after standing, stand some more. He loves you and waits for your fellowship and willingness. Call on His name and He will show you great and mighty things.
