James 5:7

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.

Remember harvest is the end of a cycle. The cycle starts with sowing seeds on a good soil and allowing them to germinate. After germination comes the growth of the plant itself and that takes its own time depending on the tree you plant. The branches grow with the leaves for some time before the flowers and finally the fruit. Even when the fruit forms, we allow it to fully mature. Then we say it is time to harvest the fruit.

Bear in mind that in this year of harvest, God will take you through the process. God never skips process; so, give God time to do all He wants to do in your life, one day at a time till He has laid every foundation block and put everything in place for your harvest to fully ripe and be ready. There is no need to rush because of a prophetic declaration upon your life. The God who made those declarations knows exactly when they will manifest in fullness.

Wait for the autumn and spring rains of your life. God has duly loaded the autumn and spring rains for your sake. They come with abundance of rain to water your fields and make sure that your seed fully develops. Never yield to the temptation to go ahead of the Lord because it always results in disasters; in the end you may be harvesting a fruit that is not ripe. Remember it is ripe grapes you want to harvest, not sour grapes.


1. Thank God for being in control of your times and seasons; that He has not left them in the hands of any man.
2. Ask for sensitivity to the Holy Spirit as you develop your talent, and let Him lead you to the places where your gift is most needed.
3. Father, please help me to walk closely behind You, not going ahead of you for any single moment.


I declare today that my times and seasons in the hands of God. He has planned everything according to His divine timing. My heart will wait on God; I shall not go ahead of Him, neither shall I walk far behind Him. I declare by divine authority that I will walk hand in hand with God daily until there is a full manifestation of His promises in my life in the name of Jesus.
