TOPIC: VARIOUS KINDS OF SEEDS (PART 3)
Scripture: 2 Chronicles 33: 16. And he repaired the altar of the LORD, and sacrificed thereon peace offerings and thank offerings, and commanded Judah to serve the LORD God of Israel.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! In continuation of what kinds of seeds to sow, there is need for us to understand that depth determine height! So the depth of what you sow determines your harvest.
What are the various kinds seeds?;
1. Freewill offering
2. Kingdom Project offering
3. Charitable/welfare seeds
4. First fruit
5. Prophet offerings
(Details in previous edition)
6. Thanksgiving and Testimony seed(Matt.8:4): This is the kind of seed given to acknowledge God as the Doer of a miracle.
So when we return to appreciate Him for all that is happening, we sow a seed that is called thanksgiving seed. For the Bible said:
Psalm 96: 8. Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name: bring an offering, and come into his courts.
Jesus said to the man that was healed to go and offer testimony seed(Mrk 1;44). Testimony seeds are what we offer to God to show gratitude for what He has done. And by this put a seal on the blessing. Has God done anything for you at all? Give Him thanks for it with an offering!
7. Obligatory giving: This is giving that is an obligation to us. They include:
7A. Giving to Parents:
Ephesians 6: 2. Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) 3. That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.
You will observe from the above scripture that your welfare on earth is directly connected to you honouring your parents!
It has to be well with you before you can pursue your dreams and aspirations! There are so many persons who are struggling to live life simply because they are breaking this principle.
Beloved, wake up today take a seed in your hands and go on your knees before your parents let them pronounce something that will terminate your struggles.
Even though your parents are notorious witches and wizards, you must obey the scripture and honour them. Your honour to your parents by sowing into their lives is not a one time issue, it must be part of your budget on a consistent basis!
Not once a year but on regular basis. And when you do, you provoke the covenant of long life. Besides it will be well with you!
7B. Immediate family
1 Timothy 5: 8. But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
Your immediate family includes your wife and children.
There is a level of blessing you can not access when your wife and children are not happy or not praying for you. So meet the needs of your immediate family and see them happy to bless you and pray for you.
7C. Hired servants(Luke 10:7);
Leviticus 19: 13. Thou shalt not defraud thy neighbour, neither rob him: the wages of him that is hired shall not abide with thee all night until the morning.
From the scripture above, we could see the idea of delaying wages and salaries is anti – covenant and anti-God! If you don’t have money to pay as at when due, don’t hire a worker.
It blocks your door when the one whom you refuse to pay as at when due cries out to God. You are authorizing closed doors if you continue to deny your staff their entitlements.
Besides, ensure your workers are well paid and they are happy doing the work. If you fail in this God can take them to somewhere else and it will have a negative impact on your organization because many at times God will be blessing your organization because of them and when you refused to allow the blessing get to them. God can pull them out and stop the blessing.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision to spend eternity with God begins now. Give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive grace to honour my parents and be a blessing to my family in Jesus name.
– I prophesy it will be well with you as you honour your parents in the name of Jesus.
– May the mercy of God restore all you have lost as a result of ignorance in the name of Jesus.
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
