MIA: MISSING IN ACTION… WHAT DO YOU SEE? MAN IS SHORT OF DAYS AND FULL OF TROUBLE…

Years ago I read where a farmer in California was having a terrible time. They had had 4 years of drought in their area and many farmers spoke of leaving farming and moving back into the city. So the exodus began. This farmer refused to give up. He prayed and he felt he should DIG A WELL. The farmer started checking into the price of digging a deep sustaining well. This would take an investment of almost his whole life savings. Remember this was years ago. The cost of the well would be at least $200,000. Also remember many were giving up and leaving farming. $200,000 is a lot of money?

Come with me today, we will find 40 acres of beautiful green land. The land is full of very luscious ALMOND TREES. The almond trees bring in big profits… ONE FARMER HAD HOPE when the others were in gloom and despair. THE FARMERS THAT QUIT SAW TODAY. THE FARMER THAT DUG THE WELL SAW IN THE FURTHER.

Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. Joyfully you'll pull up buckets of water from the wells of salvation.

HOPE IS MORE THAN WISH.
