TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
You are a plowman. God has seen the ground you have plowed and the seeds you have planted. Now it is time for the harvest. Sit back and watch your seeds multiply!
BETTER THAN A MIRACLE
Today, I want to hit a home run revelation into your part of the ballpark. If you’ve got your glove on, you could walk away with a new bullet in your arsenal and a new strategy for your spiritual game plan.
There is a balance that needs to be taught concerning miracles. As much as I love miracles, I understand that most of the time, a miracle is a short-term solution to a long-term malfunction. Miracles only happen in the most desperate times and places.
If you are someone who needs a miracle, I certainly believe God has one for you and that you should reach for it. The balance to that is this: I believe there is a better and more long-term way that God wants you to prosper.
Though miracles are powerful, they are not God’s best and His highest way of prospering His people. Did you get that? Read it again.
The children of Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years and witnessed a survival miracle every day as manna fell from Heaven. The day after they left the wilderness and entered the Promised Land, the miracle of manna ceased. Why?
They had entered in to a whole new set of rules and blessings. You see, there are two main ways the Lord prospers us. The first is “Miracles of Provision.” The second, and much better principle, is called “Seed, Time and Harvest.”
Know this: God wants you to prosper. He would just rather see you mature. Seed, Time and Harvest, aka “work and reward,” is the best way to do that. The alternative isn’t very pretty.
The only time you need a miracle is when your life (finances, marriage, job, health, safety) is a mess – I mean a major malfunction! Wanting a miracle means you are in a mess! Don’t wait for a miracle. Get out of your mess through by working for the reward!!
EVERY DAY IS A GOOD DAY TO ASK FOR AND EXPECT A MIRACLE, BUT ASK GOD FOR HIS BEST AND HIGHEST FOR YOU. BE PREPARED TO “WORK AND REWARD” THROUGH THE PRINCIPLE OF SEED, TIME AND HARVEST.
