Expecting a Harvest



Expecting a Harvest

from the things you Sow

 

 

Remember this:  The person who plants a little will have a small harvest, but the person who plants a lot will have a big harvest. 

 

 

When I was a child, I loved going to the farm with my dad.  It was our getaway with each other.  He would let me ride the tractor with him while we surveyed the fences for any needed repairs. Unfortunately, if we found any broken barbwire, I got to help him stretch a new strand so the cows wouldn’t get out.  Yes, I have a scar from the barbs to prove it.  The good thing was many times we would have time to get a little fishing in before it got dark.  He always seemed to know the best spots and the best bait to catch some really big fish.  I shouldn’t have ever let him teach me how to clean them because I inherited, and held, the position until I left for college.  No wonder He loved fishing with me so much!

 

The farm had several tillable acres, so each year dad would plant a different crop.  He would sow corn one year, soybeans the next and sometimes even popcorn or wheat.   There was always a time the ground would need to be tilled to get rid of all of the weeds and growth from the previous year.  It also prepared the ground for the seed that would be planted.  I remember that no matter when it came time to plant, I didn’t see evidence that something was planted the next day.  There was always time involved before I would see any sprouts.  Whatever he planted was the crop that ended up growing and being harvested.   If he planted corn, corn is what grew from the ground.  Soybeans produced soybeans, etc.   I also noticed that whatever he sowed, whether it was corn, soybeans or wheat… more came up than what was planted.  One kernel of corn produced a sprout which grew into a stalk that held several ears of corn; each having hundreds of kernels.  Think what would happen if you planted each of the kernels and repeated the process.  It is so awesome to see the possibilities of planting just one seed.  God’s multiplication process is amazing!

 

I learned the following:

1:  What you sow is what you get.


2:  You reap in a different season than you sow (it takes time to see what you plant, grow).

3:  The harvest produces much more than what you sowed (God is a God of    increase, supply and provision…never stingy).

 

So...sow!   Give love and you will get more love back.  Encourage others and you will be encouraged.     Bless others out of your abundance and you will be blessed in your times of need.  Speak and think positive things and you will get positive results.  The reverse is also true.  If you are always complaining or thinking the worst, negative results are probably springing up in your life.   If you are always focusing upon the bad things in your life, there is not going to be very much happiness inside. 

 

Hopefully, you have seen the principle I am talking about and will focus upon the “crop” you want to eventually “harvest” in your life.  Start sowing those things now that you want to include in your future. “Death and life are in the power of the words you speak and in the thoughts you choose to think upon, so choose your words and thoughts carefully.   Choose those things that produce life by focusing upon your blessings and the good things that surround you.   Speak and think upon those things and see the abundance that starts flowing into your life.

 

“Give, and it will be given to you in good measure; pressed down, shaken together and running over will men give into you…for with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38

 

“Let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we will reap if we don’t quit or get discouraged.  Galatians 6:9

 

Believing the best in you,
