If ever’ we as farmers in South Africa needed to operate by faith,it is now. Faith,says Hebrews 11 “is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”.
Psalm 27:1 contains this exuberant declaration of faith by David: “The Lord is my light and my salvation; “The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
Faith comes from “hearing by the word of God” (Romans 10:17}. If we work and make decisions by what we see with our eyes, we shall eventually become so disillusioned and disheartened that we’ll probably give up farming altogether.
