“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” (Galatians 6:7).
In Hebrews 11:6 the Bible underlines for us the importance and indispensability of faith in our walk with God. It says, “But without faith it is impossible to please him….” To function in financial prosperity therefore, you must learn to put your faith to work by acting on the Word.
For instance, the Bible says as long as the earth remains, seedtime and harvest shall not cease (Genesis 8:22). Seedtime is a time of action; a time for sowing seed. When you sow your seed, you’re guaranteed of a harvest; and the best part of it is that your harvest can be anytime; you can call it forth whenever you want! But if you don’t sow your seed when you’re supposed to, there’ll be nothing to harvest, notwithstanding that you have faith.
From our opening scripture, it’s clear that what you sow is what you reap. For example, Galatians 6:9-10 says, “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.” This means if you only sow seeds of good works, as indicated above, you’ll reap a harvest of good; people will do good things for you and help you. Likewise, if you’re going to reap a financial harvest, you must sow money-seed.
Some people could have others help them in several ways, but hardly do they receive financial blessings. That’s because they probably never sowed financial seeds. Until they begin sowing financial seeds, they can’t reap a financial harvest.
Jesus said in Luke 21:3 that the widow who gave two mites gave more than all the others who also gave; not because she gave all she had, but because those two mites meant all to her. So in sowing financial seeds, you give to God that which has value to you from your heart; even if it’s the last or all that you have. Let it be a seed that your heart connects with; that’s what gets a response.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Word that has given me light as to how to sow financial seeds for financial harvest. I walk in the light of this truth today; I declare that my financial seeds are sanctified by the Holy Spirit, making them acceptable to you, and I receive a multiplied harvest of blessings, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
