Jesus gave them this answer: “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does. – John 5:19

The little boy followed his dad into the barn. The father picked up a hoe, rake, and shovel and indicated to his son to pick up a few of the smaller tools. They walked out to the area of the yard where they would begin their garden project. The son had never gardened before and was excited to be helping his father in this adult venture. Whatever his father did, the son also did. The son was confident in what he was doing because it was what his father was doing. The boy felt the expectation of the harvest that would one day come.

We can feel that same expectation of harvest as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus. God is always at work and invites us to join him. That’s what loving father’s do. In confidence, we follow his every move as the Spirit guides us in the plan set before us.

Prayer: My heavenly Father, thank you for the great love you show me in inviting me to join you in your great work. I pray that I am confident in what you show me to do. I look forward to your harvest. Amen

Faith Tip: Be aware of what God is doing around you today, and watch for his invite to join him.
