A Pack of Seeds

Psalm 126:1-6

1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

4 Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

6 He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him

This passage of Scripture portrays the deliverance of Jerusalem from Sennacherib.

Sennacherib was taking over kingdoms at this time and he had his mind set on Jerusalem.

This was so glorious that it seemed like a dream.

The people were in captivity but God was about to bring a great deliverance.

During this time, there was a man by the name of Hezekiah and he trusted in God.

He knew who God was and what the power of God could bring about.

Hezekiah had a relationship with God and he was a man who believed in prayer.

Even though Sennacherib tried to intimidate the people of God, it did not matter, because Hezekiah understood that as long as there was relationship between him and God, deliverance would come.

The deliverance of Jerusalem was so outstanding that it was noticed by all the heathen round about with them giving glory to God.

The Lord sent one angel and destroyed 185,000 Assyrians in one night.

Psalm 126:3

3 The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

God had done great things for Israel and they were glad.

God is a God who is still alive today.

God is a God who will still deliver His people. In order to be delivered, there has to be someone who believes that He can.

There has to be someone who will be willing to take the Word of God and live for Him.

There has to be someone who is willing to take the map that has been given to us and live by what it says to do. (The Bible)

We, as a people of God, need to take our road map and live by what it says to do.

Church, we need to have a made up mind when it comes to the things of God.

Psalm 126:5

5 They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. {joy: or, singing}

Do we sow in tears for our loved ones?

If we sow in tears, then we will what? Reap in joy.

Do you sow the good things of God and do people see the love of God working through you?

God, this morning, has given you all a pack of seeds to be planted.

Are you taking care of the seeds that have been given to you?

Are you taking care of your garden?

When we have a God given pack of seeds we learn to take what has been bestowed to us and use them wisely.

John 16:20 Verily, verily, I say unto you, That ye shall weep and lament, but the world shall rejoice: and ye shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

Psalm 126:6 N.A.S.

He who goes to and fro weeping carrying his bag of seed. Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.
