YOUR SEED NEEDS RAIN
“And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground.” Genesis 2:5
One of the greatest disappointments of most believers is centred around sowing and reaping. In my capacity as a pastor I’ve seen many people sow with great expectation of receiving a return but also it seems like nothing comes back to them.
Let’s establish this first, God instituted the law of sowing and reaping as an unbreakable, unchangeable law that works every single time it is rightly applied. And as with all God’s laws, it never fails; hence if any man claims not to have enjoyed the returns promised, the problem lies with him.
The more revelation we have on the subject, the more proficient we become both with the sowing and the reaping part.
It takes a revelation to sow right and it takes revelation to reap right.
Remember that both Cain and Abel sowed but only one persons’ seed was accepted by God. It’s not the act alone that guarantees results but the revelation behind the act.
“By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.”
Studying the scripture for the day, you learn one of the most powerful principles surrounding sowing and reaping.
God was the first sower.
In Genesis chapter One, God sowed seeds in the earth for Adam that were meant to be his source of provision and sustenance.
Except you read this carefully we assume that in Genesis 1, trees and plants showed up when God called them forth until we read Genesis 2:5. Clearly there were no trees on the earth. Only seeds had been sown in the previous chapter. If you looked through the face of the earth, you wouldn’t have found one tree.
The scripture clearly shows the reason why the seed God Himself sowed had not grown nor yielded a harvest yet. And this is very instructive. Even Gods seed didn’t grow immediately. Every seed needs rain and a man to till it the ground.
Rain in scriptures is indicative primarily of two things; the Word and the Spirit.
Firstly, you water your seeds sown by confessing the word over it. You can’t sow and go away expecting a harvest just like that.
Secondly, seeds are watered in prayer as you prophesy over them. Prophesy is the second way to water the seed.
Your seed needs rain. Make it rain today!
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for your word that has come to me today. I declare that I’m experiencing an increase on every side and mighty harvests of blessings and miracles today from the seeds I’ve sown. I’m glad to be a partaker of your glorious wisdom! Your Word has shown me the way to live in abundance through watering my seed in preparation for a harvest. I thank you for the results I get from putting this principle to work in my life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
