As shocking as this may sound… The bible makes it clear that God is not moved to action by a ‘need’; but He is moved to act where there is a ‘seed’.
Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.
In other words God says if you have a need – a lack you want to turn into a harvest – then you must first plant 🌱 a seed from that lack in order to begin to reap!
Faith in God’s promises involves an act, a seed planting to release the process of harvest in your own life.
Whatever seed you put into the ground will yield that particular fruit 🍈 and no other.
You cannot sow money and expect to receive love. You cannot sow love and expect to receive money. Because the law of the seed states – like begets like!
Genesis 1:11, 12 (AMPC)
And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.
The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed according to their own kinds and trees bearing fruit in which was their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good (suitable, admirable) and He approved it.
YOUR REAPING IS IN PROPORTION TO YOUR SOWING!
2 Corinthians 9:6[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings.
God’s principles will not change. If you are a person who is self-centered and not liberal to others God will not change his whole plan just to accommodate you. The amount of love, the amount of money, the amount of friendship you receive is decided by you!
As you sow sparingly, you will reap sparingly. As you sow bountifully, you will reap bountifully.
