How To Have A Big Harvest, Harvest

In the Bible, we see many examples on the principle of sowing and reaping. When you plant good seeds, you will have good crops; when plant bad seeds, you will have bad crops and if you don’t plant anything, well, you wouldn’t have anything. This is a principle God has established since creation. Sound really simpe right? But such important principle is often forgotten and lost in the whirlwind of the world. The enemy wants to hide and replace God’s principle with its own invention; the sad case of the sub-prime crisis in the US may very well be a good example. Just as the farmer must plant seeds to reap a harvest of returns, we too must plant good seeds to reap a harvest of blessings.

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25 

The reason many people are not growing as they should is because they are not sowing. They are living self-centered lives, oblivious to the people around them. They must break out of their little own world and reach out to others in need. We need to keep planting good seeds into other people’s life, so in our own lives will reap good harvest. If we want to reap happiness, we must plant happiness into other people’s lives first; if we want to reap financial blessings, we must sow financial seeds into the needs of others; if we want good and healthy relationships, we must sow loving commitment towards them too.

 

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have the extra resources put aside to sow into the lives of others. Sow within your own means, regardless of the situation. In Genesis 26, a great famine struck and in verse 12, Isaac sowed into the land and reaped a hundred times as the Lord blessed him. No one in the right mind will sow into a famine, but Isaac did with the Lord’s blessing. It must be a real act of faith; to put good seeds into a ground seemingly dead, but God showed His sovereignty alas.

The world is in famine today. We need to be more seed-orientated than need-orientated. You may have something lacking, whether finances, health, relationships, career, peace, joy, etc. whatever your needs may be, look over your own needs to fulfill the needs of others first. Don’t sit around counting of what you need, think about what you can sow over them.

And then look up and wait, for the harvest of a hundred time is coming.

the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.   Galatians 6:8-10

  1. Great thoughts! Jesus tells us that the Father knows all that we need. He is waiting for our faith to increase that he can do great things through us. He tells us with power in Luke 12:31 to seek first his kingdom and everything else will be given to us as well. That says it all. You must believe that Christ is a rewarder of those who seek him, those who trust him.
    The truth never fails in that you cannot outgive God! Give all that you have and you will have more than you could ever need. Trust him.
