“Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb that yields seed, and the fruit tree that yields fruit according to its kind, whose seed is in itself, on the earth”; and it was so. Genesis 1:11 NKJV http://bible.com/114/gen.1.11.nkjv
Seed only produces after its kind. Seed is the guarantee and promise that there is a future. No seed, no future.
God established the Law of Creation that operates by the sowing of seed. Either God or the Devil will grow the seed that you sow. It just depends on what seed you sow. For example, sow judgement, criticism, and condemnation will come back to you. The Devil will multiply it.
Sowing seed is intentional, purposeful, and directional.
One of the biggest problems with believers is they want the seed for what it will do FOR them instead what it will do IN them.
Manna and quail ceased for the Israelites in the wilderness when they came in the Promised Land. There they would be sustained by what grows.
Words are seeds. He brought forth the world through words. Mary got pregnant and conceived Jesus through words.
When God wants to do something great in a person, He sows seeds in them.
“The sower sows the word. And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness; and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word’s sake, immediately they stumble.” Mark? ?4:14-17? ?NKJV http://bible.com/114/mrk.4.14-17.nkjv
The Devil comes to steal the seed of the Word in our heart! He knows the power of the seed in us.
The seed will also represent and reproduce the character of where it is sown. Seed that doesn’t go into good ground produces no fruit. The seed is at the mercy of the condition of the soil. The condition of your heart.
Do you have some plowing to do?! Do you need to break up the stony ground?
You might say, “I’m just trying to control my mouth.” Change what’s in your heart, and that will change.
The miraculous comes from the seed. It’s the guarantee of a continual supply. The potential of what’s in a seed is unlimited. The harvest is always greater than the seed.
God will sow in you, but you will have to cultivate it to make it become real in you so it becomes real through you.
“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” II Corinthians? 9:6 NKJV http://bible.com/114/2co.9.6.nkjv
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”Galatians 6:7 NKJV http://bible.com/114/gal.6.7.nkjv
It’s not even about the size of the seed or your faith, it’s what you do with it. God gives you a seed, and you have to sow it not just keep it.
It’s always the same principle…sowing and reaping.
“Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,” II Corinthians 9:10NKJV http://bible.com/114/2co.9.10.nkjv
Don’t eat your seed. It’s HAS to be sown by you to grow. God will sow in us, but not for us. Sowing puts the creative power of God to work in your life.
“And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.” Galatians 6:9? ?NKJV http://bible.com/114/gal.6.9.nkjv
So there’s a progression of a multiplication for you, in you, and then He sows you!
“Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children.” Matthew? ?14:19-21? ?NKJV?? http://bible.com/114/mat.14.19-21.nkjv
The boy gave what little bread and fish He had, and God multiplied it to feed 5,000.
Seed sown in me establishes my progress…..That’s God’s Word, His wisdom. His counsel.
Seed sown by me establishes prosperity…..That’s my time, my talents, my gifts, my service, my money, my love, and so much more.
My life sown by God establishes my purpose….That’s all of me that He needs for a specific purpose in His destiny for me.
“Those who are planted in the house of the LORD Shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bear fruit in old age; They shall be fresh and flourishing, To declare that the LORD is upright; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.” Psalms? ?92:13-15? ?NKJV?? http://bible.com/114/psa.92.13-15.nkjv
