A lesson of patience, persistence, and hard work can be learned from planting Chinese bamboo. When planted, watered, and nurtured Chinese bamboo trees do not outwardly develop for several years.

As the seasons pass, the farmer must nurture the bamboo, during which time nothing noticeable happens to demonstrate the hard labor in caring and growing the bamboo. However, unseen by the human eye, the bamboo is expanding its root system in preparation for growth.

During the fifth year, the Chinese bamboo tree begins to grow. At which point the bamboo can grow to more than eighty feet in just six weeks!

It’s interesting to note that without four years of preparing a secure root system the bamboo tree would be unable to properly grow in the outside world.

Isa 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. KJV

Ps 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. KJV

Heb 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, KJV

James 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. 4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. KJV

James 1:12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. KJV

Be faithful be persistent for your reward is coming!!!
