2 Corinthians 9:6-12
Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
This is what the Lord has been speaking to me most recently. I am still without a job and waiting patiently on the Lord for the next step and direction. So me and my closest friend decided to fast together for 7 days to seek Gods face as to his will for us and if he indeed wants us to began moving with some ideas he gave us. If you can remember from my other blog ” In the waiting” that’s exactly what I have been doing. Waiting for God to say its a go lol but, I have learned the Lords idea of waiting is always active. Just not sitting still and waiting for things to fall in your lap but putting your hands and your mind to work. So after breaking our fast we were certain the Lord was going to say “now is the time” but, much to our disappointment he gave me rhemas on waiting on Gods timing and sowing. A little bit discouraged Jesus reminded me this morning that “this is a season of sowing for his body”. Just like a good farmer never stops to work but, he too has seasons where he sows and where he reaps the harvest. As we wait on his time we should always be sowing, that we should sow bountifully this season so we can reap a bountiful harvest when he says its time.
1 Corinthians 15:58
Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
So I then began to ask the Holy Spirit was does that look like sowing whiles waiting? A lot of time this scripture is used for to referencing solely financially sowing but the Lord desires we sow not only our finances, our resources, and most importantly out time for his kingdom. Since I am out of work I have a lot of time on my hands which I can use to sow into the kingdom. The Lord finally released my youtube channel which I am so happy about and he had me start this blog, a bible study over the phone and even a fb page to promote end times new to get the bride of Christ ready. You see a lot of times we sow into others only just to reap here on this earth so if we cannot see an immediate benefit it discourages us from sowing. However, that is why the Lord wants a cheerful giver someone who has the heart to know that when you sow into other believers, life you are sowing into the kingdom.
When you sow into the kingdom you reap that is law that stands. So when you sow into people or ministries whatever reward they acquire becomes your reward as well. Its added to your personal rewarded that’s why many will be amazed at their rewards in heaven saying but Lord I didn’t do much however, Lord will say whatever you do unto the least of these you did unto to me. When you sow your time, prayers, money, and resources to advance the kingdom of God you will indeed reap! Although I am not working in the marketplace I find myself so busy working for the Lord. I intended to sow all that I have into his kingdom because a season of harvest is coming soon and I want to one of those that sow bountifully.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
Sow means too: plant (seed) by scattering it on or in the earth.
So if you are in a season of waiting like me sow and sow bountifully wherever the Lord lays on your heart to sow. Is the Lord asking you to sow into church plant yourself by serving whiles you wait? What ministry has the Lord put on your heart to support financially, or what ministry has he laid on your heart to began preparing for? Is there someone the Lord has put in your life to sow into them, could be time, resources or financially? Has he asked you to sow prayers for a particular ministry or person? Whatever he has put on your heart to do actively pursue whiles your waiting. Put your hand to the plow and be generous when you sow knowing that none of it is in vain. You will be rewarded richly so brethren sow like you never have before the harvest is coming soon!
Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with Me, to repay each man according to his work.”
