Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (The Leverage)
Galatians 6:6-8 “Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”
Our opening Scripture opens us to a universal principle of God’s Word which says Seedtime and Harvest shall not cease, while the earth remains. This is amazing! Note that it says seedtime and harvest, not just seedtime, nor just harvest. The both go together; but one initiates the other. Sowing sets in motion harvest. Therefore we don’t wait to receive, we give to receive. We sow to harvest. Hoping for harvest without sowing seeds, is hopeless hope. Harvest hope is only substantiated by seed sowing fact or reality. The Word of God reveals that harvest is always going to be the consequence of seed sowing; no Seedtime, no Harvest! This principle of God’s Word has put the control of our own harvest in our hands such that we can sow our seeds, either sparingly or bountifully and reap the harvest in the same measure. This is awesome! Simply amazing!

The Word declares in Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” I can determine the kind and measure of harvest I desire, by acting on God’s Word in sowing the right kind and measure of seed. This is simply amazing, isn’t it? God is good and His Word reveals His goodness to us, so that we can have a bountiful harvest of any kind of seed that we sow. You had better be sowing the right seeds in the right measure.
The principle of Seedtime and Harvest is a revelation of God’s goodness and justice. I don’t reap just the exact measure of seed that I sow; I reap a good measure of it, pressed down, shaken together and running over. This is the goodness of God. Again, I reap a harvest of the kind of seed I have sown. This is the justice of God. Awesome, isn’t it? You can create the future of your desire by engaging the principle of sowing and reaping. Please, take responsibility for your life and destiny. Stop playing the blame game. Don’t let anyone or any situation cause you to sow the wrong seeds. Choose your seeds carefully and thoughtfully, and your harvest will be a desired one.
Remember, God cannot be mocked; whatever you sow, you will reap! Make up your mind to seize the handle of your life from the grip of happenstance. Live by sowing and reaping; giving and receiving. Look at the harvest you desire to enter into in few years, and start sowing the seeds for it. Be deliberate and intentional about your life.
My Solid Front (Confession):In the Name of Jesus, I engage God’s way of prospering today by deliberately sowing my seeds cheerfully. Amen.
