Having been a South Texas farmer most of my life, I have encountered many problems I've had to work through. Being 66 years of age, I thought I had seen them all until last week.

I grew 2800 acres of corn on our farm this year and was finishing up the harvest when I started harvesting a new variety that we had never planted before. Immediately we realized we had a problem. The corn had 25% damaged and black kernels. I had 13 truckloads of corn none of the elevators were willing to take. The seed company was dragging their feet to help and I was taking samples all over trying to get some dollar amount out of what should have been $100,000 worth of corn. I was at the end of my rope.

I woke up in the morning after numerous sleepless nights and looked at my tablet before getting out of bed. The first thing I saw was a post from my friend Ron that quoted Psalms 46:10, Be still and know that I am God. He said as long as my hands were on the problem trying to solve it, God would not intervene. So, I told the Lord I wasn't going to even think about the corn and was only going to praise Him and give Him thanks for everything.

Later that morning, the Lord brought to mind a man who had a large cattle feedlot nearby. Long story short, I took him a sample of the corn, agreed on a price we could both live with and I delivered him the entire field the following day.

I am convinced that without casting my cares on the Lord and being still, nothing would have happened. God has each of us speak a word so in season into fellow believer's lives all the time and YOU NEVER KNOW when it will change a situation or a person's life that the Lord wants to touch. Hear and then speak and watch the Lord work.

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalms 46:10
