After a flood, plant!
Genesis 9:20 (NLT)
‘After the flood, Noah began to cultivate the ground, and he planted a vineyard.’
Noah had just come through the most amazing trial of his life. You would think he might just recover for a while but no, Noah does an amazing thing. He gets right into it and begins cultivating and planting.
This is exactly what we need to be doing also. It is the perfect time to be planting seeds through prayer, forgiveness, generosity and kindness. Plant them everywhere you go.
God is looking for those who have experienced a flood to be extravagant planters into other peoples’ lives.
Crop specialist, Gene Johnson says “After a flood, the best thing you can do for the soil is get something growing in it again. Get some roots growing.”(http://www.agriculture.com/farm-management/farming-after-a-flood_298-ar22297?print)
Just plant wherever you can and you will reap a great harvest. During this time your roots will grow down deep and help the flood situation in your life dry up quickly.
Keep planting and don’t give up. The flood that you’ve been through tried to steal your fruitfulness but as you plant in fertile soils you will produce above and beyond what you thought possible.
