WEEK OF AUGUST 2-8
When we hear the phrase seedtime and harvest, the first thing many people think of is finances. The reason so many of God’s people are not having the kind of results they should be having with their finances is that they are only applying part of the law of seedtime and harvest. They think they will just sow some money and then become instantly wealthy.
Although the law of seedtime and harvest certainly applies to finances, money is only one type of seed that we have available to sow. If we truly want to change our lives and destinies, then we also need to take charge of our thoughts, our words, and our attitudes. Only then will we be able to allocate our finances and material goods in line with God’s will for our lives.
Did you know that:
YOUR THOUGHTS ARE SEEDS?
Did you know that:
EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE BEGAN AS A THOUGHT?
That should cause you to begin at once to change the way you think!
The Word of God says, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).
This scripture tells us that our lives tend to go in the direction of our most dominant thoughts. Whatever we think about the most is the way our lives will go.
Let’s consider a scenario. Nobody just wakes up and decides one day to embark on a life of sin and crime. That kind of life begins with a thought: A person might think, I can steal that pack of gum and nobody will ever catch me. Now that person may cast down that thought at first, but then it comes back and he meditates on it for a while. Then he actually pictures himself doing it. Next thing he knows, he’s sitting in a prison cell, serving time for robbery and wondering how his life went in that direction. Granted, that’s perhaps an over simplification, but you get the point! It began as a thought.
Anything that has the potential of growing and becoming bigger than its present state is a SEED. An acorn is an oak tree that fell to the ground, held its ground, and then grew into a giant tree. That little acorn got its beginning as a thought in the mind of God.
As you set out to become a sower, God said, if you don’t get your thoughts, your words, your actions, and your attitude in line with His Word, then, the money seed you sow will have nothing but weeds around it, and it will be choked out.
So, let’s begin filling our minds and hearts with the Word of God so that God’s thoughts will become our thoughts. Our finances will flourish!
