SOW FOR A GREAT FUTURE;
(Make A Move: Sow A Seed) ;
TO THE BIBLE Genesis 8:22 MSG
“For as long as Earth lasts, planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never stop.”
The verse above reveals an important principle in the Kingdom of God: sowing and reaping. Jesus also made reference to it in John 12:24 where He said, “Listen carefully: Unless a grain of wheat is buried in the ground, dead to the world, it is never any more than a grain of wheat. But if it is buried, it sprouts and reproduces itself many times over” (MSG). In other words, “Except you sow your seed, you have no reason to expect a harvest.”
This principle applies to everything about life, and it’s no respecter of age or status. The harvest a farmer gets is a direct result of the seeds he plants. Just as it is with the farmer, so it is with you. Your seed could come in different forms; it could be your time, talent, strength or any other gift God has blessed you with for a glorious life. But how great and glorious your life will be is hinged on what you do with your seed.
This is why it’s important that you give yourself to the service of God and humanity. You can’t put your best in the wrong things and expect to have a glorious life. Remember Paul’s words, “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows” (Galatians 6:7 NIV). So, give your best to God and His work; it’s your guarantee of a glorious future. Remember, the more you give, the more He adds to you, and the greater you become.
Genesis 26:12, Isaiah 55:10-11, 2 Corinthians 9:6
Dear Father, I’m so glad to be a partaker of your glorious wisdom! Your Word has shown me the way to live in abundance through the seed-principle of faith. I thank you for the results I get from putting this principle to work in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
