LEARN TO WATER YOUR SEED;
“And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes… I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase”(Ezekiel 36:27-29).
In the Church of Jesus Christ, there’s been a lot of preaching on prosperity. For instance, it’s been preached that “When you give, God will give back to you.” But the truth is, it doesn’t end there. So many of God’s people give: they sow seeds and give their offering but it doesn’t seem to come back to them multiplied as God said it would. Why?
The reason is that for seeds to germinate, the conditions necessary must be present, and water is one of such indispensable conditions. Any seed planted wouldn’t grow and mature unless it’s properly watered. The same thing happens spiritually when you give or sow your seeds! Scripturally speaking, the rain is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. The Bible says, “Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field” (Zechariah 10:1).
This is talking about the Holy Ghost! When you sow your seed or give to God, if it’s going to come back multiplied, it’s going to be as a result of the rain-the outpouring of the Spirit in prayer; especially praying in the Holy Ghost and speaking in tongues. This will lead to such an outpouring of such a great harvest, that there’ll be no room enough for you to receive it; praise God!
