For six years you may plant your fields and prune your vineyards and harvest your crops, but during the seventh year the land must have a Sabbath year of complete rest. It is the LORD’s Sabbath. Do not plant your fields or prune your vineyards during that year…Be assured that I will send my blessing for you in the sixth year, so the land will produce a crop large enough for three years. Lev 25:3-4,21. The Lord taught the Israelites to trust Him and His promises, not to look at the natural but to what God could and would do. As they committed to God’s way and not their own, God would provide supernaturally to produce an extra 3 years crops in the 6th year when they didn’t plant in the 7th year. This also kept the people focused on God and not their own self reliance. Thank God for His Word today and His abundant promises to guide our life as we put our trust in Him and not in our own self reliance.
