The Lord can speak a simple sentence that seems to come out of nowhere, and the content of those sentences can reorder a person’s thinking. Yesterday I heard the Lord say, “I am casting a net wider than your imagination.”
Later in the day, I shared the word with Jan, and she responded, “That sounds like a harvest.” When so many are experiencing a sense of disappointment for a variety of issues, thinking that the Lord is casting a wide net of harvest sounds distant and out of the range of possibility. For those who would doubt, I would say, “But God!”
While the human imagination is a beautiful gift, it does have its limitations if the source of our imagination is only what we consider possible. Like the simple sentence the Lord spoke to me, there are times in life when we need reminders that the good things God wants to accomplish are blessings that come from a heavenly storehouse we cannot see with natural sight or comprehend with human intellect. That storehouse contains a stock of blessing and breakthrough similar to what Paul described in Ephesians 3:20. They are supplies of God’s goodness that are “infinitely more than we might ask or think.”
When times are unsure, and the way forward seems undefined, a continued hope in the goodness of God is our only safe place. Believing in the goodness of God provides us with the emotional and spiritual stability we will need to keep moving forward until the Lord’s net is drawn, and the harvest is finally revealed.
