2. A Seed’s Assignment Is To Grow
“When it is sown, it grows up and becomes….” –Mark 4:32 (NKJV)
This is what God designed seeds to do—become. A seed produces more of its own kind—far more than what was originally planted.
A seed’s assignment is to grow. That’s what God designed it to do. So, the seed knows what to do, and the soil knows what to do. Do you know what to do?
Your job is to plant seeds and expect them to grow and become a harvest in your life.
Your seed determines your income when you learn that money isn’t your only seed.
Jerry Savelle says, “If we truly want to change our life and destiny, then we also need to take charge of our thoughts, our words and our attitudes. Only then will we be able to appropriate our finances and material goods in line with God’s will for our lives.”
Thoughts are seeds. Words are seeds. Time is seed; possessions are seed; and yes, money is absolutely seed. That’s why the Lord said this to Brother Savelle years ago:
“If you don’t get your thoughts, your words, your actions and your attitude in line with my Word, then the money seed you sow will have nothing but weeds around it, and it will be choked out.”
You can be certain that when you plant seed, it will grow. When you sow financial seed into good soil—Kingdom soil—it will bring a harvest. So, don’t get caught up in the idea that you need to hold onto everything you have. Keep yourself in a continual state of sowing and reaping, and watch as your seed—not your job—determines your income. That’s why Jerry Savelle says, “My income always far exceeds what the board at my ministry pays me. Why? Because I’m a sower. I live to give.”
3. Seed Will Grow in Unusual Places
“Seedtime and harvest…shall not cease.”—Genesis 8:22, KJV
There’ something interesting about seeds. Seeds will grow in some of the most unusual places because that’s all they know to do.
That’s good news because the world says you have to have the right job, the right background, the right education and the right opportunity in front of you to increase. But that’s not true with seed. When you sow seed—even in the most unlikely places according to the world—God says you will receive a harvest.
Jerry Savelle saw this principle in action while riding his motorcycle through Colorado. As he drove the winding roads through the mountains, he noticed something interesting—trees growing on rocky mountains. With no soil in view, he wondered how that could be. But there they were. It was likely, he thought, that a bird had picked up a seed somewhere and dropped it where there was just enough soil and moisture that the seed knew to grow.
“Seeds will grow when you plant them,” he says. “Seeds that aren’t sown are seeds that aren’t growing.”
