Spread the love


Scripture: 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.

Beloved, in continuation of what we started yesterday, the harvest is a function of seed versus time.

So for every seed planted, time must be allowed before you can experience a harvest. You don’t plant your seeds and overnight expect harvest! There is therefore need for patience after you must have sown your seeds.

What are rules to operate the law of sowing and reaping?

1. It must be done with love
2. It must be done at the right time.(details of it in yesterday meditation)

3. The quality of the seeds must be considered: As a child, I had observed my father setting aside the best part of his crops during harvest for the next planting season. Infact, he goes out to search for disease resistant and high yielding crops to be planted for the next planting season. And I learnt a lesson, your seeds determine your harvest.

From our anchor scripture, it talks about ‘seed time’ – meaning in the time of planting, the seed in your hands determine the harvest to expect. Many believers sow poor quality seeds and expect great harvest! The quality of your seeds define your harvest.

In Gen.4, the people presented their seeds as offering to God;

Genesis 4: 4. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had respect unto Abel and to his offering: 5. But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

Just like Cain and Abel, many offerings are being rejected by heaven today. It is quite unfortunate that many are not concerned if their offerings is rejected or accepted. They presume that as long as the church has collected it from them, it is already accepted by God! No sir/ma! If heaven did not accept your seeds, then don’t expect harvest.

4. The nature of the soil: I also learnt a lesson from my father, that before planting, you must check the nature of the soil to find out if it is still fertile or not!

Similarly, our seeds operate best in a fertile ground. Not every ministry is a fertile ground especially ministries that lack God’s backing! Whatever is sown into such ministries are as good as dead. And if your seeds are dead, you can be sure there will be no harvest.

Jesus teaching along this line described three types of soils. They are stony ground, road side ground and thorny ground.(Matt.13;3-8)

Matthew 13: 3. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 8. But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.

The only fertile ground is the called the good ground that yielded 100 percent as harvest. Therefore operate your sowing with regards to ministries and ministers that serve as a good ground to get maximum yeild.

Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision of where to spend eternity is best made now. Give your heart to Jesus today.

Prayer points:
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive grace to sow quality seeds on a fertile ground in Jesus name.

Prophetic Declaration;
– I prophesy every evil bird eating your seeds immediately they are planted catch fire in the name of Jesus.
– May the mercy of God restore your wasted seeds as a result of planting it on a wrong ground in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
