Does God provide a “conditioning treatment” when everything seems lifeless and dry? Absolutely! When we receive the seed of His Word and cultivate it by believing and trusting in it, then joy will be the result! Seeing with the eyes of faith, rather than just looking at the natural conditions around us, lets us do just that — take joy and rejoice at His promises. Joy will revitalize a shriveled harvest and cause it to thrive and flourish. Let’s check our “joy detector” and make sure our joy is high and our harvest is ripe.
