...."Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. 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"....

Psalm 126:5-6 NASB

In each one of our walks there will always be some situation or circumstance that our Heavenly Father calls us to stand in faith for. Perhaps it will be over a long period of time - in order that that situation or circumstance might be restored "fully" to His perfect will - on all fronts. Things will be such that we will have to hold fast to His Word [Will] at all cost to ourselves - continually sowing the necessary seeds of faith and love [corresponding words and actions] that will cause us to "transcend" [rise above] any of the tactics and schemes of the Enemy in His attempt to cause us to depart from the place of an abiding faith and love..

It may be standing in faith for finances, a family member, a spouse, a congregation in the place where we live or it may be for a situation which is physically far removed from us. It is in this time of perfect intercession that we truly experience what it means to walk in love, and to lay down our lives for the brethren. There will be times when the attempted pressure of the Evil One and his forces almost seems to overwhelm us. But as we stand faithfully on the Word of God we are strengthened in His patience and love, and regardless of any "dry" places we might find ourselves in we will be found persevering toward the goal [Will of God] - dependent only upon the Lord's wisdom and strength.

In those times when it almost seems as if God has abandoned us, and only darkness abounds, we must praise God despite our feelings or circumstances - "knowing" deep in our heart that He will never fail us or forsake us. It is during these times that we learn to walk above the "influence" of our five physical senses and "feelings" [emotions].

If we are to walk in any high degree of faith in true service to the Lord Jesus Christ we must - once and for all - realize that the revealed Word of God is the supreme authority in this universe. As we gain a deep revelation of this fact [spiritual reality] we will never bow our knee to the "lies" of Satan, but rather we will diligently and continually keep our eyes "fixed" on Jesus, the author and perfector [developer] of our faith.

Even though we may be called to "sow in tears" for a season it is certain that, in persevering, we cannot fail to inherit the blessing we have sought to attain, and God's purpose and desire will be fulfilled in us and for us - without fail.
