To understand the spiritual, you must first understand the natural. People that plant gardens know that whatever fruit, vegetable, or plant they want they have to plant a seed for it.
Genesis 8:22 says as long as the earth remains seed-time and harvest,cold,heat,summer, winter, day, and night will not cease.
I noticed when a small seed is sown and tended to properly, it multiplies. I also noticed with fruit, they have more seeds in them to grow more fruit. It is a perfect description of Genesis 8:22
Whatever you need, plant a seed for it. Genesis 1:11 says each seed produces after its own kind.
I was listening to Keith Moore and Jerry Savelle last year in 2017 and it came to me to sow money into two ministries every month because I needed a financial increase. It was a small amount monthly, but it produced a harvest. In the same year,I had a dream about freelance writing which led me to writing a blog in February 2018. I got a pay increase this year in April 2019. It was $7 more than what I currently use to make. I am now working on another idea to launch a business and letting God lead me in what to do. I am also able to save and be a blessing to other people. My prayer everyday is “Lord bless me to be a blessing.”
That is what you call multiplication. When you sow a seed whether it is money, time, an encouraging word, prayer, friendships, love, and so on, it comes back multiplied.
You tend to your seed with speaking the word of God and walking in love because faith works by love and trusting in God. My dad told me the other day that with some plants you put a seed in the ground comes back quickly, but some take time. With farmers, they expect that what they planted will come.
I noticed that the more I give out of a pure heart, the more blessings come back to me. 2 Corinthians 9:10 God supplies seed to the sower, bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteous.
Glory to God! This reminds me of a song I used to hear in church “You can’t beat God’s giving no matter how you try.” The song also said “The more you give, the more he gives to you.”
Matthew 13:12 says to a person that has more will be given and that person will have more abundance. However, who ever has not even what they seem to have will be taken away.
If you hold on to a seed, it can’t produce or grow. How much you will receive depends on how many seeds you planted.
I like the New Living Translation of Ecclesiastes 11:1 : Send your grain across the seas, and in time, profits will flow back to you.
Whatever you sow into, you will reap the benefits of it. I love sowing into other ministries as God leads me because I reap the anointing from that ministry.
I love the event in the bible in Mark 6 about the two fishes and five loaves of bread. As the disciples gave it to Jesus and divided it among each other, it multiplied. They were able to feed 5,000 men and that was not including the women and children. That is multiplication.
I am glad I sowed to the spirit this past Wednesday. My emotions wanted to leave because the regular teacher was not at bible study, but my spirit was impressing on me not to leave. Because I didn’t yield to what I wanted, I got confirmation on what God was dealing with me on earlier in the week. God used my dad earlier in the week for the phrase for the blog, and when I heard the speaker Wednesday night speaking on giving, I was overjoyed. It let me know I was on the right track. Also Tammy Bradley Scott talked about the works of the flesh (check out her inspirations and videos on website Closer Walk Ministries to learn how to draw closer to God). As I listened to her video, I was saying to myself thank God I yielded to the spirit and not what I wanted to do. I was able to get direction on what to do next. That was two confirmations for me on Wednesday just from me sowing to the spirit.
Galatians 6:8-9 Amplified version says 8 For the one who sows to his flesh [his sinful capacity, his worldliness, his disgraceful impulses] will reap from the flesh ruin and destruction, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. 9 Let us not grow weary or become discouraged in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap, if we do not give in.
It pays to be led by God. It saves us from a lot of problems. Don’t ever get tired of doing what is right because in the end it pays off. No matter what others get away with, in the end it will lead them to destruction.
Psalm 37:1-3 NIV Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; 2 for like the grass they will soon wither,like green plants they will soon die away.3 Trust in the Lord and do good;dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.4 Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Glory to God! No matter what others do, you keep doing what you believe. Let your light shine so that they may see God manifesting in your life and it will lead them into the kingdom of God.
Let’s sow good seeds and reap the harvest of it. No matter how long it takes. Like a farmer, have confidence and expect to reap the harvest. How much do you want? Put it in God’s hands and it will multiply. Just like people plant seeds in the ground, they are not concerned how it will grow. They just plant it, water it, look after it, and wait for it to grow.
Sow as you go!
