GOT DECENT DIRT?
The harvest only comes from victorious living, supernatural transformation and accomplished vision. Some also require a bit of answered prayer and a few dreams.
Remember, the harvest does not happen because you want it to. It happens when you set your mind that it’s going to happen – which means you don’t have to act like a victim. You are going to trust God and partner with Him.
If we truly believe this, we need to make sure God’s heart for our lives is top priority. The harvest is Jesus Christ ruling and reigning in a particular area of your life. What area, you ask?
If a farmer sows apple seeds, his harvest is apples. If he sows orange seeds, guess what? Oranges. What are you sowing? Are you distributing gossip and impatience to others while expecting a different result? Are you kind to strangers and even family?
If you need a friend, be one. If money is what you need, consider giving. You reap what you sow, as does the farmer, but first, he inspects the field – checks out the soil. He readies it for the seed – the word of God.
“Listen! A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly, because the soil was shallow. But when the sun came up, the plants were scorched, and they withered because they had no root. Other seed fell among thorns, which grew up and choked the plants, so that they did not bear grain. Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up, grew and produced a crop, some multiplying thirty, some sixty, some a hundred times.” – Mark 4:3-8
Sowing and reaping isn’t easy. You can’t give up because something is hard. Imagine if David had given up at the sight of Goliath? Did Abraham quit when Ishmael was born? No, Sir! They had visions and dreams of something better. Do you? Are you content to simply get by in life, or do you want everything God has set aside for you?
To get a harvest, you need to get your hands dirty. What kind of soil are you sowing into?
FROM MY BOOK LORD OF THE HARVEST
TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I began your journey when I sowed My only Son. Reaping and sowing is all throughout My word. You will reap whatever you sow. Be generous as I have been generous. Bring in a harvest for My kingdom. The workers are few though your harvest will be great.
