Sow a Seed Reap a Harvest
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:7-9 NKJV
There are times in life when it seems like nothing is happening in fulfillment of what God said. During these difficult times you begin to wonder, what’s the use? Perhaps you said to yourself or to others, “I’ve tried to be faithful. I’ve done all that I know to do: I’ve been praying, faithfully attending church, and regularly tithing. I’ve been doing everything that I thought I should do but nothing seems to be happening, so what should I do?” Keep sowing your seed!
Don’t give in to deception because God is not mocked. Resist discouragement and weariness because you will surely reap a harvest in due season, if you don’t lose heart (Text). There are three unchangeable things about God: (1) God doesn’t lie (Num. 23:19), (2) God doesn’t change His mind (2), and God cannot be mocked (Gal. 6:7). What God has promised to you is true; and, what God has spoken concerning you shall come to pass—not in your time (Chronos) but in His time (Kairos)—at the set time; at the proper time and season.
Cast your seed in the ground of your heart and leave it there and your harvest will come (Mark 4:26-29). Never uproot your seed. Something secretly and powerfully is happening inside the seed. Life is in the seed, not the soil. E.g., when the seed of God’s Word is planted in your heart, you receive new life, for it is God who creates that life and watches over His Word to perform it (Jer. 1:12). Sow a seed and reap a harvest!
