Proverbs 3:5 – 6 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”
This DOES take real faith and TRUST!
Isaiah 55:8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord"
We need to think and act differently to the way things are done traditionally in the world. The ways we farm by the world’s tradition are: harvest our crops, spend the money then wait……wait for the rains and then start working again. By this time we’ve missed 1/3 of the season. The Lords’ ways are different: harvest on time, to standard, no wastage and with JOY! Market the crops, knock the stalks over, protect your mulch!
Important: This is the time to collect compost (green material) material and by August, it will be brown. Collect mulch, green material and start preparation for the next season.
There are 3 important keys:
2. WEEDS! Farmers might rest but weeds don’t. They are a curse and rob you of moisture.
3. WEEDS! Small weeds are easy to remove. The crop canopy prevents sunlight from getting onto the ground hence preventing weeds from growing. Do your late weed control and have your land prepared.
Foundational Scripture: Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
By the end of June, the farmers fields should have mulch. Craig encouraged the Operation Trumpet Call farmers to be a full on CHAMPIONS. God has faith in us!
