Imagine Day 11


Today’s Scripture: “Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” - John 4:35

Today’s Thought: Jesus told his disciples to open their eyes, to look at the fields. He was not speaking literally about the agriculture surrounding them. He was making an analogy to lost humanity. Jesus went on to say, “The harvesters are paid good wages, and the fruit they harvest is people brought to eternal life” [NLT]. Day to day living makes us very blind most of the time. All we see is the to-do list. We rush through it so frantically that we don’t see what our heavenly Father wants us to see: sin-sick souls heading toward disaster, heading toward eternal death. Do you see them? More than ever, Jesus is telling us, “Open your eyes!”

Today’s Prayer: Lord of the harvest, open my eyes! I want to be a harvester, introducing people to the good news of eternal life. Throughout the remainder of these 21-days, give me a supernatural vision to see the lost and how I might reach them.
