(Gal.6:7-8, Luke 6:38)
THAT SEED OF YOURS WILL BECOME A FOREST SOME DAY
The thesis statement of Matshona Dhliwayo unarguably aptly captures the notion and eventual outcome behind any fulfilled desire to Sow. But caution must immediately be called upon here. This is because the sort of sowing under reference is that in the affirmative sense.
Matshona Dhliwayo wrote: ‘a seed today is a forest tomorrow’. How so true! God’s bountiful return always far outweighs man’s prior offering. Indeed, internationally renowned accounting technocrats and investment experts like Warren Buffet and the likes will agree with me that with proper caution spearheading budgeting and investment, turnover is expected not to run short of, but exceed initial investment by at least some margin. Why?
Every seed sown especially to God is a contribution being made to the bank of heaven. As a deposit for investment, it immediately yields maximum prosperity. So, at cash-point (in the light of Deut.1:11), $10 emerges in the worth and value of $10,000 in diverse ways extending beyond financial prosperity.
This is exactly the divine notion of Luke chapter 6 verse 38. It states: ‘give, and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal, it shall be measured unto you again’.
If this is the Spiritual, material and, at least the financial turnover for sowing, why does the question about not reaping so prevalent?
To start with, understand that God will never lie. Additionally, whilst giving or sowing is good, having understanding about the seed sown, sowing it in the right atmosphere and with the right mind is far much better.
Hear the way the Pastor with the largest single congregation in the entire continent of Europe put it. Pastor Sunday Adelaja speaking about sowing seeds, noted: ‘Joy of harvest belongs only to those who endure the pain of sowing’.
There is an unsalient message in Pastor Adelaja’s thesis. First, any seed sown which cost no sacrificial pain to the sowing heart is merely a usual practice. Secondly any filthy hand and heart preoccupied with sowing plants such seed in the wind not in the soil. Therefore, such hand and heart must expect nothing.
Third, if there is neither a deliberately-conceived, joyful expectation of blessedness and returning goodness from God for the seed sown, there is actually no need sowing the seed. For any one who sows seeds in whatever form to God must joyfully believe that God is a good rewarder of them who happily let go of their hand and heart that which costs them something worthwhile (2 Sam.24:24).
So then, the pertinent questions are obvious. How do you sow? What do you sow? With what hand and heart are you sowing? Do you sow when it is convenient only or at all times (see Eccl.11:2 and 6). Where do you sow? Are you forced to sow and thereby give unhappily?
IN THE END, THE COUNTENANCE OF THE GREAT KING AT THE MOMENT OF RECEIVING SEED FROM A SOWING HAND IS DETERMINED BY THE STATE OF THE HEART OFFERING THE SEED. SO, MAKE THE TREE GOOD AND FRUIT PROCEEDING THEREFROM SHALL BE GOOD (TO BE CONTINUED NEXT WEEK).

Backslidden – living in sin – needing fresh recommitment (say):
Christ Jesus, You are the Anointed One of the Most High. I come to you today as I am. In your mercy, help me out of my situation. Heal my soul, my spirit, my body, my life and my destiny. I acknowledge you as the only true lover of my soul. Please, deliver me on every side and save me through and through. I promise from the depth of my soul to be yours from henceforth, in Jesus name. Help me now O God. Be my Lord, my Saviour and my all in all from this day. Thank you Lord (read Ps.54 in closing and pray more).
HYMN: Bringing In The Sheaves
1. O God, I repent for the sin of failing you in tithes, offerings and the likes.
2. O God, cause the voice of my tithes, offerings and the likes to rise as sweet-smelling savour onto you.
3. O power of obedience through my offerings arise and attack the attackers of my finances.
4. O God, cause the bank to release my financial remittal.
5. Money and wealth stolen from me in the dream, sleep and in reality, O hand of fire from God, hijack them back for me.
6. Read Psalm 123 (and say): My father, my soul is so weary for debts, lack, delay, poverty and not meeting up: show me your mercy today.
7. O God, give an unusual financial vision.
8. O power of God, collide against every demon, power, spirit, forces and personalities devouring my money and my virtues.
