Something totally different today! I just needed my worries about what is going on in the Netherlands with the farmers become words before it becomes a useless and unproductive emotion of anger. So I decided to search for Bibleverses about the beauty of the Farmer and put some down here.
Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. Genesis 1:11
When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the LORD your God for the good land he has given you. Deuteronomy 8:10
Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God. Hebrews 6:7
Be sure you know the conditions of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations. Proverbs 27:34.35
The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. Deuteronomy 28:12
He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows. Isaiah 30:23
One of the first verses to allow myself the wisdom of different approaches is read in Isaiah 28 about the way the farmer “is rightly instructed; his God teaches him“:
“Give ear, and hear my voice; give attention, and hear my speech. Does he who plows for sowing plow continually? Does he continually open and harrow his ground? When he has leveled its surface, does he not scatter dill, sow cumin, and put in wheat in rows and barley in its proper place, and emmer as the border? For he is rightly instructed; his God teaches him. Dill is not threshed with a threshing sledge, nor is a cart wheel rolled over cumin, but dill is beaten out with a stick, and cumin with a rod. Does one crush grain for bread? No, he does not thresh it forever; when he drives his cart wheel over it with his horses, he does not crush it. This also comes from the Lord of hosts; he is wonderful in counsel and excellent in wisdom.” Isaiah 28:23-29 ESV
Other than the “politicians” that are playing their cards in our world today, the farmer has to give ear to the Voice and allow himself to be instructed in order to produce results for the people while the politicians just print money at the expense of the people. Where the Farmers are part of a generational proces that is dedicated to feed the people, governments every some years come and go and drain the people with their dangerous agendas.
It’s all I want to say (for now) before my unproductive anger takes over.
Therefor my Declaration over the Farmers:
May God give you of heaven’s dew and of earth’s richness – an abundance of grain and new wine. Genesis 27:28
