To understand the spiritual, you must first understand the natural. For example, people that plant gardens know that whatever fruit, vegetable, or plant they want, they must plant a seed for it.
Genesis 8:22 says if the earth remains seedtime 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 that fruit, they have more roots 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 source produces after its kind.
I listened 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. The same year, I had a dream about freelance writing, leading me to write 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 every day is, “Lord bless me to be a blessing.”
That is what you call multiplication. When you sow a seed, whether money, time, an encouraging word, prayer, friendships, love, and so on, it comes back multiplied.
You tend to your seed by speaking the word of God and walking in love because faith works by love and trust in God. My dad told me the other day that with some plants, you put a seed in the ground and come back quickly, but some take time. Farmers 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 that a person that has more will be given, and that person will have more abundance. However, whoever has not even what they seem to have will be taken away.
It cannot produce or grow if you hold on to seed. So 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 profits will flow back to you in time.
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 could feed 5,000 men, 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 encouraged me not to go. Because I did not yield to what I wanted, I got confirmation of what God was dealing with me 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 the website Closer Walk Ministries to learn how to draw closer to God). As I listened to her video, I was saying thank God I yielded to the Spirit and not what I wanted to do. As a result, 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. Still, 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, it will lead them to destruction in the future.
Psalm 37:1-3 NIV Do not fret because of 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; 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 us sow good seeds and reap the harvest of them. 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 about how they will grow. Instead, they plant, water, look after, and wait for it to grow.
Sow as you go!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the giant seed of your Son Jesus. I have eternal life and the benefits of accepting Jesus into my heart. Your source produced a massive harvest of believers talking about the good news of Jesus. Lord, I give you what I have, and you multiply my seed; I water it with the word of God. God put a watch on my tongue. In Jesus’ name! Amen.
