Threshed

by | Nov 21, 2015 | Suffering, Trials

Do you feel like you are being threshed like wheat or some other plant? Are there so many things going on in your life that you think you can’t bear one more bad thing?  Read what the prophet Isaiah wrote:

Isaiah 28:26-29 (NLT)
“The farmer knows just what to do, for God has given him understanding. He doesn’t thresh all his crops the same way. A heavy sledge is never used on dill; rather, it is beaten with a light stick. A threshing wheel is never rolled on cumin; instead, it is beaten softly with a flail. Bread grain is easily crushed, so he doesn’t keep on pounding it. He threshes it under the wheels of a cart, but he doesn’t pulverize it. 29 The Lord Almighty is a wonderful teacher, and he gives the farmer great wisdom.” [1]

Just as god gives the farmer wisdom to know how to thresh the plant and how much to thresh it so the grain isn’t destroyed, God knows who you are and what you can handle. He will give you the strength to continue during the threshing process and will make it stop just in time. Some plants need a lot of threshing to get the seed out. Some of us people need a bit of threshing to learn what god wants from us.

Have faith in God. know that He will stop the threshing when the time is right. The threshing will not go on forever even if you think it seems like it already has. God loves you and wants the best for you. He is letting this happen for His purposes to be fulfilled. Surrender all of yourself to Jesus Christ and trust totally in the Lord God Almighty. God is in control.
