And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. Luke 10:2 (ESV)
My Harvest Field
Someone prayed for me, I’m sure of that. What do you mean by saying that? Can you explain yourself? That’s it. There is no good explanation for me to be here working in your harvest field. I didn’t wander out into this harvest field all by myself. I didn’t choose myself to be a worker in your harvest field. If I were to dream up my own harvest field, it wouldn’t be this one. I wouldn’t have chosen to be here doing this work. Don’t take what I am saying wrong. There is no chance of that. I don’t resent being called and sent out to work in this field. I am thankful for any and every opportunity to serve you. It is my joy to be a laborer in your harvest field. I want to go wherever you send me. I want to do whatever you ask of me. I am trying to say that I could not have dreamed this up, serving you in this harvest field. There is another thing. What’s that? Longevity and sticking to something are not my long suits. You could have fooled me. Really? Not, really. But, you have worked in this harvest field for many years. Yes, I have and that is surprising to me. I should not be surprised. Why is that? You have made me able to work in this harvest field over these many years. You have sustained me. You have strengthened me. You have given me joy as I have gone and done your will. Yes, I have. What else? You have made me able to bear fruit for your kingdom and bring glory to your name. Yes, I have. I am very thankful to you about that. That’s good.
What else have you noticed about working in my harvest field? I have noticed that there are not enough workers in your harvest field. There is a lot of work to be done in your harvest field. More workers are needed in your harvest field. Your harvest field is a lonely place sometimes. It shouldn’t be. Yes, I know. What will you do about there not being enough workers in my harvest field? I will pray for more workers to be sent out into your harvest field. What else? I will ask others to join me in the work in your harvest field. Who will you ask? That’s a good question. As I am praying for more workers to go out into your harvest field, I will be counting on you to lead me to them. Will you show me who you want to join me in the work in your harvest field? Yes, I will. Then I will ask them to join me in the work in your harvest field. That will be very good.
Lord, your harvest field is plentiful. Thank you for calling me to go out and work in your harvest field. I have noticed an absence of workers. There is much work to be done. There are not enough laborers in your harvest. Send an abundance of more workers. Amen
