TOPIC: SOW WHERE YOU WANT A HARVEST
TEXT: GENESIS 26:12 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him…”
When you sow apple seeds, you get apples. When you sow seeds of friendship, you get friends. If in the natural, you receive in the area in which you sow, how much more will you receive in the supernatural when God blesses you! The Bible tells us that when Isaac sowed in the land, he reaped a hundredfold even though there was a famine in that land. (Genesis 26:1) The reason was that “the Lord blessed him”. So if you are believing God for a breakthrough in a particular area, sow in that area because, He “is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think”. (Eph 3:20) Whatever money or time you give to the Lord, He will multiply it back to you. For example, you have 24 hours a day like everyone else, but the Lord can make your day very fruitful. Hence, after doing all that needs to be done, you will find that you still have time left to rest.
Even when you have nothing to give but prayers, your prayers will not return to you void. God can answer them exceedingly above what you have asked. When Job lost everything that he possessed, he prayed for his friends, and the Lord not only restored his losses, but He also “gave Job twice as much as he had before”. (Job 42:10) So start sowing seeds in the area that you are believing God for, and know that before long, you will be reaping your harvest! Study the parable of the sower in Matt. 13:1-23. Verse 23 is the platform into the good ground – your heart. “But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”. Meditate on these Scriptures Gal. 6:7; Mark 4:8-9.
