“As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night will not cease.” Genesis 8:22 HCSB
Seed, time and harvest are for now and will continue until the end of days! This is a law that God built into the universe! We reap what we sow (Galatians 6:7-10). Our seed is a weapon that God uses against our enemy!
If you haven’t noticed, seeds are not exactly pretty. But the harvest they bring is absolutely beautiful! In fact, most seeds are quite ugly, yet they can bring forth fields of flowers, and bountiful food! Jesus said that unless a seed dies and is laid into the ground, it will not bring forth its life. The harvest of a seed is exponentially greater than the single seed (John 12:24)! The seed has resurrection life within it. The shell of a seed is like a casket! The harvest is what makes the seed look good. It’s what comes out of the seed that is life. Seed deals with future. We purchase packages of seeds which display the harvest. The package does not show the seeds, but what they promise to bring forth when they die! It is the harvest that makes seeds attractive. Yet in God’s eyes, the seed is beautiful because He sees its purpose, its destiny! The seed we have in our hand can be used for His glory, or wasted! We sow with prayer, in giving, and in deeds.
Ask God to give you eyes to see things, the seeds of your life, the way He does! Ask Him to give you wisdom to steward the seeds He has entrusted you with. Thank Him for the increase He will bring as you are faithful with what He has already given you. Ask Him to super-charge your words, your prayers and your deeds, today, that they might bring forth an abundant harvest. Ask Him for the seeds that have be planted in your children to come forth abundantly. Ask Him for the seeds that have been planted in our city to bring forth the destiny that He has intended for them! Ask God for the seeds that have been sown abundantly in our nation for our nation and for the world, to bring forth its harvest!
