What You Seed Is What You Get!
Seedtime to the farmer is very important. He holds back his very best seed for next year’s crop. Each seed carries with it a DNA potential to produce bountifully beyond itself. When placed in the right soil, tended well, weeded, fed, and receiving the right elements from heaven, a bumper crop is in the making.
The same principles apply in the spirit realm. The seed you plant will make more of its own. If your seed is worldly, you reap death. If there is a seed of doubt, it will bear double mindedness. BUT, if there is a seed, just a seed, of righteous hope that is tended well, held before the Father, it will produce its reality. That seed of belief in God’s Word, a select promise, determines the crop that is on the way. God has special seasons for these time-released blessings. They come when we need and can handle them. When we seed forgiveness to others, we receive forgiveness from heaven. We can seed weeds or we can seed righteousness, holiness, repentance. We can seed worry and riches or we can seed peace and love. We can seed us, or God in us. God placed an incorruptible seed in us (1 Peter) which bears fruit as we abide in Him.
There is a “to the degree” principle here. To the degree we sow to the flesh, which includes everything other than that which nurtures the spirit, we reap more in-kind. And to the degree we seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness, only those things that are good will be added to us. Sounds like a no-brainer to me. Bet a farmer would agree.
