“Bread corn is bruised; because he will not ever be threshing it, nor break it with the wheel of his cart, nor bruise it with his horsemen.” (Isaiah 28:28).
The farmer does not gather Timothy (his worker) and bluegrass and breaks it with a heavy machine.
But he takes great pains with the wheat. So God takes great pains with those who are to be of much use to Him. There is a nature in them that needs this discipline. I believe the church folks these days cannot take discipline and so they create more mess in their everyday activities. Straight and plain so you will understand the circumstances around you. Take the discipline with a grain of salt and you will be glad in your later years.
Don’t wonder if the bread or corn is treated with the wise, discriminating care that will fit it for food. He knows the way He is taking, and there is infinite tenderness in the oversight He gives.
He is watching the furnace you are in lest the heat should be too intense. He wants it great enough to purify, and then it is withdrawn. He knoweth our frame. He will not let any temptation take us but such as is common to man, and He will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that we may be able to bear it.
Today everyone wants to be in a position but not to work, there are there to be seen without any form of a conviction. every position comes with some form of responsibility. A new position must be tested and tried to be confirmed and taken over. Every driver is trained and then has to take a road test. His actual trials come when he is in the vehicle alone and no instructor is with him. As in the natural so in the spiritual and every believer is tried and tested and must be proven worthy of the calling in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Do you believe in this disciplining love of the Husbandman, and are you trusting Him with the leading and government of your life? Oh, that you would cease to envy or be disturbed by the people around you! Some day you will be glad for the training and blessing they have brought you.
I have been a blessing to many and though they never acknowledged it to me they have testified to others of the blessings they have received. The knowledge I have received I have imparted unto others and will continue until the last breath in my body. Learn as much as you can and teach within your scope of ministry.
