It is so amazing that when you scatter your seed it will definitely lead to an increase and when you withhold the seed, poverty will not be far fetched(Pro.11:24)
Now a look at the parable of the talents explains it all and in matt.25:29 scriptures say “For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath”
It is clear that when you scatter your seed, you become open for abundance and when you keep it because you say that its too little to be sown, that which you even call little will not even be sufficient. Your seed sown is your guarantee for the abundance that you desire. Therefore be wise, scatter your seed, make it a practice to keep sowing that you may always have in abundance.
Many have a prompting from the Holy Spirit to sow a seed or to give and they find it difficult to come to terms with such, it’s so hard for some people, in fact they want God to do something outstanding before they will believe it is God.
First of all, settle it forever that all that you have as a true child of God is from God.
When the Holy Spirit leads you to give, it’s not for Him to eat, we obviously know that He gave the resources to you.
Responding in obedience to the prompting or leading to give will in turn make all grace abound toward you that you may have sufficiency in all things. The more you give, the more you enlarge your capacity to handle more resources.
Obey His leading today and always, because it might just be your set time for changing to a higher level in commanding more resources.
Do you believe in God’s unlimited ability to make provisions for you, can you trust Him well enough to supply all your needs!
Now take note of this; God created the birds as well as the humans. He has taken upon Himself the sole responsibility of providing for the birds, just imagine how insignificant a bird is compared with you. This same God that created you said a suckling mother cannot abandon her child, the same way He will never leave you.
“Therefore trust God who made provisions for you yesterday that He is well able to do same tomorrow even if there is no sign today” God is more than efficient in making supplies unto you, be confident in His ability always
In life there are seasons, as we know a time to plant and a time to reap. Now scriptures puts a link on the manner of seed sown to the definite outcome as a harvest in 2 Corinthians 9:6 – ” But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully”
To sow sparingly means to sow economically, moderately. Putting the state of your pocket in view and making it the major determinant for what you sow.
But to sow bountifully means to sow in large quantity, in abundance.
Therefore it is a choice your seed sown will determine your harvest. Sow large, get large harvests; sow little/moderate, get moderate harvest.
Please note that the largeness of your seed or its littleness is not necessarily a function of how much money for instance but in your ability to define what’s large or little according to your means. So invariably you know what’s large and what’s little to you.
Every man has to determine what to sow and sow cheerfully out of love.
Every one that gives receives!
Meditate again today on this scripture and receive a definite revelation of prosperity through the Holy Spirit. Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.(KJV)
This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success (AMP)
I want you to meditate on this scripture and receive a personal revelation from the Holy Spirit: Psalm 1:1-3
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Abide by every instruction here and the blessings will be automatic
Feeding from the Word: this is normally a fact finding adventure from scriptures with the Holy Spirit as your tour guide to teach you all things and reveal to you the things that have been given to you freely.
You are spiritually nourished when you get revelation truth form the word of God.
You faith(absolute dependence on God in every situation) is always enhanced when you have sufficient revelation from the word of God.
Praying in tongues: when you pray in tongues, it is your spirit that prays – 1 Cor.14:(KJV) “For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful”. Praying in tongues helps edify you and sharpen your ability to receive deep information and secretes from the Spirit of God.
Worshipping God and fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit: worshipping God is way-beyond singing worship songs, it is the full involvement of your being in ministering to God by the Holy Spirit. Fellowship entails being conscious of the person of the Holy Spirit with the aim of communicating or having communion with Him.
When we do, we are overwhelmed by His presence and power, we can build this kind of atmosphere around us every time and function in it. It influence our lives and makes a whole lot of difference.
Heeding the leading of the Holy Spirit: the Holy Spirit is there to also direct us, the bible says in Proverbs 3:5-6(KJV) “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”. A timely instruction or caution from the Holy Spirit can save you from a whole lot of mistakes.
When you walk in the Spirit, it becomes normal for you to bring forth the fruits of the Spirit.
Oh you have problems in your spiritual growth, it’s like you always satisfy the desires of your flesh, in fact you have become so bothered that any time you satisfy your flesh you feel bad and start to pray that God should help so you don’t fall. This is the solution as prescribed from scriptures in Galatians 5:16-17 (KJV) “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would”.
You can not walk in the Spirit and still have issues with the flesh, therefore your victory over the works of the flesh is simply stated in your being able to walk in the Spirit always. Please note that this Spirit in this verse of scripture is the Holy Spirit. Walking in the Spirit enables you to be spiritually minded which brings life and peace (Rom. 8:6),
walking in the Spirit can be achieved in some forms such as these
Feeding from the word of God
Praying in tongues
Worshipping God and fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit
Heeding the leading of the Holy Spirit
Do you have a low self esteem! Do you always feel awkward about you personality. Let this register deep on your mind forever from 1 Peter 2:9(KJV) “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light”
this is an important scripture as it spell out what God has said about you, this is how He sees you, so ow do you see yourself. What matters is how you see and accept what God says about you, your personality in Christ. Speak it to yourself regularly till it dawns on you and influences your mindset which in turn will have a positive effect on your life, because as a man thinks in his heart so he is.
So have the perfect self image from the word of God accept it and let it influence your life forever, it will influence your carriage, composure and your actions.
Speak this out:
I am a chosen generation,
I am a royal priesthood,
I am an holy nation,
I am a peculiar person who will shew forth the praises of Him who hath called me out of darkness into his marvellous light.
There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty – Proverbs 11:24(KJV)
This scripture simply states that when you scatter your seed, it will definitely lead to increase, but when you hold on to what you should give out as seed, then that’s a quick way to become poor.
Be a wise spiritual strategist, give, scatter your seeds, and I assure you that what seems to be small will greatly increase.
