"I am weary with my groaning; all the night make I my bed to swim; I water my couch with my tears." (Psalm 6:7) Drought to deluge

The crops need water. You have things in your life that are growing below ground that haven't sprung yet. The strength needed--much like the chick hatching from the egg--to face the world topside you acquire as you push higher. But the water. David, above, seems to be drowning in his own tears. He looks to be facing some particularly vexing foes ("Mine eye is consumed because of grief; it waxeth old because of all mine enemies." 6:7). Looking at all the trials and struggles from which you desire to surface as helping build your strength, is the order of the day. If you step back and look at your circumstances as "this is how it is now", it will give you a measure of peace. You might wind back and retrospectively view each action that led you to where you are and it may not change the present. But God is working. Strength takes time to build. And tears take time to fall.

"Blessed is the man whom Thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of Thy law. That Thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked." (Psalm 94:12)

"They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God." (Psalm 84:7)

Strength to strength

Compared to God, we are most certainly weak. I find, though, that "glory[ing] mine infirmities" (2 Corinthians 12:5) is a shade or two removed from "wallowing in my weakness" (...?). Jesus will meet you at each and every season of your life and give you the necessary revelation or wisdom or understanding (in a word: strength) to make it through. But I find that we must also take into account the spiritual atmosphere in which we wade around. Layers of fog must lift in order to see clearly where we're going. And this necessarily takes faith in Christ that He is leading you through the low points of your walk. Take heart! the Harvest is almost here.

Who knows? Perhaps the crops you're looking to yield are ones that have never been seen. A (super)natural hybrid born out of the uniqueness of your circumstances and your weakness and your tears. And God's grace and power and love.

"Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples." (John 15:8)
