Gardening with God

How can wisdom be obtained by him who holds the plow and drives the oxen? 
By seeking her as silver, 
and searching for her as for hid treasure. 
"For his God doth instruct him to discretion, and doth teach him." Isaiah 28:26. . .

He who taught Adam and Eve in Eden how to tend the garden, desires to instruct men today. 
There is wisdom for him who drives the plow and sows the seed. 
Before those who trust and obey Him, 
God will open ways of advance. 
Let them move forward courageously,
trusting in Him to supply their needs according to the riches of His goodness. 

He who fed the multitude with five loaves and two small fishes is able today to give us the fruit of our labor.  The God who in the wilderness gave the children of Israel manna from heaven still lives and reigns. 
He will guide His people and give skill and understanding in the work they are called to do. 
He will give wisdom to those who strive to do their duty conscientiously and intelligently. 
He who owns the world is rich in resources, and will bless everyone who is seeking to bless others. 

We need to look heavenward in faith.
We are not to be discouraged because of apparent failure, 
nor should we be disheartened by delay. 
We should work 
that the earth holds in her bosom rich treasures for the faithful worker to garner, 
stores richer than gold or silver. 
The mountains and hills are changing; 
the earth is waxing old like a garment; 
but the blessing of God, 
which spreads for His people a table in the wilderness, 
will never cease
