He hath made every thing beautiful in his time. (Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV)
There is a set time for everything you need. It could be today, tomorrow, next week, or next year. It takes faith to trust in God’s timing. That is we must be ready to receive. This reminds me of what happened in the movie FACING THE GIANTS. Mr Bridges words motivated Coach Taylor to prepare his field against the Giants.
Mr. Bridges: Two farmers desperately needed rain. And both of them prayed for rain but only one of them went out and prepared his fields to receive it. Which one do you think trusted God to send the rain?
Coach Taylor: Well the one who prepared his fields for it.
Mr. Bridges: Which one are you? God will send the rain when He is ready. It’s your job to prepare your field to receive it.
God will do His part and I believe He is waiting for you to make room to receive. I heard a story about a guy who needed 32″ TV from his father. His father told him there was no space in his ( the boy) room for the TV. The father travelled one weekend and when he returned, his son had given out his old TV and other things to create enough Space for the 32″ TV. When his dad saw his faith, he bought the TV for him the following day.
God wants you to stay in faith. He wants you to prepare your field to receive. The farmer who prepared his field believed that God will send the rain. He didn’t have to wait for sign. He believed that God was more than able to pour down rain. How about you? do you trust God will send rain? In Mark 11:24, Jesus said “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
God will open the windows of heaven for you. He will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Malachi 3:10. But the truth is you must be ready to receive. You have to prepare your field to receive His blessings.
Are you preparing your field?
God bless you!
thanks for your motivation. God bless his Word and bless you.

Amen. God Bless you too Daniel for visiting Uplifting Christ. Hope to hear you soon.
Came across this yesterday, as I was searching the Internet. I always wondered why the director made a point of showing the clock when Grant woke up to got outside to pray, and his wife got up to pray when she realized he was not there. The clock displayed 3:11 – and then two scenes later is the “Mr Baker” parable, (which I love!!) I wonder if this was done on purpose, one of those little things that they sometimes do in movies that is “hidden”, but not… (Or, God was moving in this movie a lot more than even the production team realized!!)
Thanks for the inspirational message. I will certainly be back to read more of the items you share!
