#1 SEEDTIME AND HARVEST
I’m a sower. I understand the law of seed-time and harvest.
Every seed I sow has unlimited potential!
Through the sowing of my seed I determine my own destiny.
No devil can stop me from prospering; no famine, no drought, no bad economy, no recession, can keep me from prospering.
My seed produces harvest!
More than enough harvest!
In the Name of Jesus Christ.
#2 THE BLESSING
THE BLESSING of the Lord is on my life and it is there for good!
I’m the seed of Abraham
Galatians 3:6-9 Just as Abraham “believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.
I have a right to be blessed!
I have a right to be blessed coming in;
I have a right to be blessed going out;
In the city; in the field.
I’m the head; not the tail.
I’m above only; I’m never beneath because the blessing’s on me!
Everything I set my hands to do is blessed!
The blessing on my life makes me rich, prosperous, successful, wealthy, and totally unlimited!!!
In the Name of Jesus Christ, Hallelujah!
RIGHTEOUSNESS IS CRITICAL HABITUALLY (RICH!)
Righteousness has everything to do with your prayer life. The nature of God is righteousness. The nature of Satan is iniquity.
1 John 5:17 All unrighteousness is sin…
2 Corinthians 5:17, 21
17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
James 5:16 Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.
1 John 5:14-15 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Isaiah 32:17 The work of righteousness will be peace, And the effect of righteousness, quietness and assurance forever.
Isaiah 55:11MSG The words that come out of my mouth shall not come back empty-handed. They’ll do the work I sent them to do. They’ll complete the assignment I gave them. Every Word of God is backed by His faith and is as full of power today as it was the moment he said it. When you believe the Word and your faith comes together with His faith, the power of that Word is released. The Holy Spirit goes into action and the Word explodes into this natural realm and becomes a reality in your life.
Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let the LORD be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”
Genesis 13:2, 5-6, 14-17
ABRAM was very rich in livestock, in silver, and in gold. Lot also, who went with Abram, had flocks and herds and tents. Now the land was not able to support them, that they might dwell together, for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. And the LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.”
No longer shall your name be called Abram, but your name shall be ABAHAM; for I have made you a father of many nations. I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you. And I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants after you in their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and your descendants after you.
Then ISAAC sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.
Genesis 30:43NEB So JACOB increased in wealth more and more until he possessed great flocks, male and female slaves, camels, and asses.
Genesis 39:2-3 The LORD was with JOSEPH. He was successful and lived in the household of his Egyptian master. His master observed that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made everything he was doing successful.
Psalm 1:3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.
1. Demonstrate your confidence in the seeds’ ability to produce a harvest
-Be enthusiastic and excited.
2. Clearly define what your harvest is and talk about it often.
-What did you sow that seed for? Clearly define it.
3. Water your seed by speaking the Word of God over it.
4. Keep the weeds off your seeds.
-What are weeds: Unforgiveness, strife, bitterness, jealousy.
-All those things the Bible says we don’t need in our life.
5. Continually praise God for your harvest.
-Even before it manifests.
6. Never give up on it.
7. Keep sowing toward your next harvest.
-Your harvest is determined by what you do while you’re waiting for it.
The Spirit of the living God dwells in you and me!
When we were born again, our new life was birthed with the excellent greatness of God. “We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God and not of us” (2 Corinthians 4:7). Our part is to simply make the quality decisions that give the Spirit the dwelling place He requires to let God’s power work through us.
We will build our inner man and our outer man to be vessels of value in our world when we decide:
1. to live always and only by God’s WORD;
2. to live the life of God’s love toward everyone;
3. to live by uncompromising faith;
4. to live a life of honor and honesty before God; and
5. to excel in every area of life (spirit, soul and body).
John 15:5 I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
MSG: I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing.
AMPC: I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing.
Abiding in Jesus isn’t something that comes automatically to any believer. It is a lifestyle that involves discipline and effort. We have to choose to give ourselves to our union with Him, to give Him first place where our attention is concerned. If we want to grow spiritually, if we want to walk in power and in fellowship with the Lord, we will have to spend the time it talks to know Him.
We must continue in it every day. The moment we stop moving closer to Jesus, we always start drifting away. Make a decision to give yourself to the things of God. Focus your attention on the Lord. Surround yourself with His Word. Listen to preaching and teaching tapes while you are getting dressed, driving to work… Listen to the Word anytime, anywhere!
Abide in Him!
Romans 10:9 Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Isaiah 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
John 15:7AMPC If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.
Job 36:11 If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasantness and joy.
Luke 6:38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
Malachi 3:10NIV Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
Romans 8:26 says, Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered
John 15:26AMPC refers to the Holy Spirit as the Comforter, Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Strengthener and Standby.
The Holy Spirit comes to our aid. He is our Helper. He will help us overcome any weakness of the mind or body by making intercession for us according to the will of God.
When you don’t know how to pray as you ought concerning a situation, allow the Holy Spirit to be your Helper. Let Him take hold together with you and see to it that The WORD of God comes to pass. He will lead and guide you in prayer and you will be confident that The Word is mightily at work.
No matter how big satan makes a mountain look, the faith of God always works. It merely has to be applied. Mark 11:22-24 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. As you speak God’s WORD in faith, that WORD will remove any size mountain and stop the attack of satan.
You can build yourself up on your most holy faith by praying in the Holy Ghost (Jude 20). Your faith and the Holy Spirit of God dwelling within you as your Helper will cause you to be victorious in every area of your life.
The following is a prayer of commitment to allow the Holy Spirit to be your Helper.
Father, in Jesus’ Name, I see from Your WORD that the Holy Spirit, the Greater One who indwells me, is my Helper. I recognize His vital part in my prayer life and as I intercede, I acknowledge the importance of allowing Him to take hold together with me.
“I am willing to be a vessel unto honor, fit and ready for Your use.
“I will to yield my members as instruments of righteousness. I will to present my body a living sacrifice to You, Father, that the Holy Spirit can flow through, so He can work to bring the will of God to pass.
“I ask You, Holy Spirit, to take hold together with me in prayer. When I don’t know how to pray as I ought, I ask You to be my Helper. Lead and guide me, instruct me as I intercede. The WORD I speak in faith will cause the perfect will of God to come to pass.
“In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
1. Meditate on God’s WORD
Joshua 1:8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
2. Be a doer of The WORD
James 1:21-22NLT So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the word God has planted in your hearts, for it has the power to save your souls. But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
3. Put The WORD first place in your life
1 John 5:21AMPC Little children, keep yourselves from idols (false gods)—[from anything and everything that would occupy the place in your heart due to God, from any sort of substitute for Him that would take first place in your life].
4. Obey the voice of your spirit
Deuteronomy 28:1 [Blessings on Obedience] “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.
5. Do exactly as God tells you to do, NOW
Take these steps and you’ll grow and mature spiritually!
