Sowing and Reaping

My great desire is to help you grow in God and become all He wants you to be, and do all He has called you to do. For this to happen you must get a revelation of God's law of sowing and reaping. It is one of the truths that has changed my life the most. In Genesis 8:22, God says there will be seedtime and harvest as long as the earth remains. These words were spoken to Noah as he looked at the earth completely destroyed by the flood. In other words, God was letting him know he could start over with the seeds in his hand and create a beautiful world for him and his family. If you are facing devastation, remember that you can begin to plant good seeds, and God will make them grow into an abundant harvest. From the beginning in the creation of man God talked about seeds. Genesis 1:26-31 describes God's release of authority into His first two people. He tells them that every living thing had seed in it, and they are to be fruitful and multiply. Seedtime and harvest are about multiplication and authority. By the God-given dominion in your life, you have the power to multiply blessings in the earth. Listen to these words from proverbs 11:24-25, "There is one who scatters, yet increases more; and there is one who withholds more than is right, but it leads to poverty. The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself." Here is the Revised Version, "One man gives freely, yet grows all the richer; and only suffers want. A liberal man will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered." Multiplication power is increase if it is planted eat it, it's gone. If you His Son as a seed for the sowing the Word of God in in your hands. The seed you hold will grow and and nurtured. Only what you sow can multiply. If you sow it, it will come back many times more. God gave harvest of millions into His Kingdom. Jesus spoke of the soil of Heart (Mark 4).

Every day you can sow good seeds in all areas of your life. Sow your work into the company of people you serve as unto the Lord. Each day demonstrate God's love in kindness and mercy. Think of all you do as seeds sown into God's kingdom. Be prepared to wait for your harvest. "And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose hearts (Galatians 6:9). Your " due season" will come. It is on the way right now in accordance with your sowing. "But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully" (2 Corinthians 9:6). Your sowing decides your reaping. You order your harvest in advance by the seeds you plant. Your future is in your hand. You decide your tomorrow by your sowing today. God will not be mocked. This is an unchangeable principle designed to bless those who live in God's kingdom.

OUR KEY TO DEBT FREEDOM: Our church has lived the principle of seedtime and harvest to become debt free and since January 1985, we have gone on a cash basis. By planting our seeds into the poor, missions and other ministries, we have seen God's multiplied harvest. As we face needs we plant our seeds. It is a rhythm of constant sowing and reaping and sowing and reaping and sowing and reaping. We look to God as our source. He uses many channels to bring His supply to meet our needs, but He alone is the Ultimate Source. Our expectation of the harvest is from God. His promise is to supply all our needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Phil. 4:19). Even as we approach the biggest hurdle in our land purchase and children's building, we are sowing our seeds for a harvest to finish the building by the start of the school and buy the land. We've learnt that our seed planted in God's hands is the key to miracles. I pray for you as you make your whole life a seed into God's Kingdom. May everything you touch prosper and succeed. I pray for wisdom, strength, and anointing to overflow you-in Jesus ' Name. Let's agree on the harvest you need. Nothing is impossible with God! l l l Make Him Your Source Plant Your Seed in Faith and Love Expect a Miracle Harvest!

Offshore Luxembourg Bank Invest Confidently with Internaxx Get an Online Trading Account Now While the earth and heaven remains, seed time and harvest....summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. That is the word of God according to Genesis 8:22. In short, the law of sowing and reaping is compared to that of summer and winter and also day and night. So long as we live, we shall experience these things. They are bound to happen. In the ordinary world, you cannot sow wheat and harvest rice. You will harvest that type of seed sowed and in plenty. In the Kingdom of God, the same rule applies--whatever one sows, the same he shall reap. Many people in the modern world pray for miracles. They want the miracles of Elijah and Enoch but do not live the lives of Elijah or Enoch. You may be one of God's children that is looking forward to experiencing a miracle like that of Gideon. Below are some of the sowing and reaping methods: Kindness. Sow kindness in other people's lives, and wait for the seed to germinate and bring forth its fruits. Many of the people don't see the need to be kind. They think that they have what it takes--they have authority and all the protection that one needs in this life and therefore they can be cruel or brutal to anyone. Their status in society is enough--a mention of their name will send shivers down the spine of other people, maybe because of their political affiliation, the money they can spend or their position of authority. However, you don't sow seeds and reap their fruit or grain the next day. A day comes when the seeds of arrogance and cruelty shall mature. It might come in your time, your children's time or your grandchildren's time. And those seeds shall bring forth much harvest. It is therefore advisable to sow good seeds, seeds of kindness. If you don't reap, someone in your generation will reap. In How To Overcome an Inferiority Complex as a Christian, I mentioned Mephiboshet, who was called upon to reap kindness from his forefather, Jonathan. It was Jonathan who showed David kindness, but when he was long dead, Mephibosheth was called upon to be shown kindness by King David. Sow kindness and you shall reap a good measure.

Ads by Google Peace. Peace is a precious commodity and rare to come by. That's why those that sow seeds of peace need to be many. There are many ways that you can sow peace by being peaceful yourself. Go about your daily business peacefully-avoid trouble with other people. Or be a peacemaker--be ready to reconcile other people by listening to their cases without judging them. Pray that God gives you the ability to make peace. Many people are quick to cause trouble but do not know the way of peace. If you shall decide to sow the seeds of peace, your family shall live peacefully on earth. You shall be respected by everyone. People shall call you the blessed of God for the Bible says: Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God." Generosity. Would you like your children's needs to be provided for even if you are not around? Practice generosity. Generosity is that ability to meet the other person's need at any appointed time. The Bible records a woman at Shunem (2Kings 4:8-10) who committed herself to provide to Elisha food and accommodation whenever the man of God passed by that side of the town. When the seeds of generosity germinated and brought forth the harvest, guess what it

was? A son! If you have struggled to achieve something your entire life, and you have exhausted all avenues, try being generous. And may God meet your desire as you put His word into actions. Friendship. A man that wants friends must show himself to be a friendly person. No one will get along with you if you have an attitude that puts him or her off. If you want to have friends, you may have them around the globe but do you sow seeds of friendship? Look for people and befriend them--you might befriend them on a sunny day but they will really be of importance on a rainy day. Who doesn't need friends in this world? I cannot exhaust this list for it is very long, but it is an outline. Whatever thing you need in this life, sow its seed. God shall cause it to grow and bring forth fruits a hundredfold. Note: All seeds don't grow to maturity at the same time. To some, their seed might take one week while for others, ten years....but nevertheless if you don't live to reap of what you sow, your generation will. God bless you.
