As we move into Autumn it is the time of year when the word 'harvest' is metioned quite a bit. The farmers have drawn the crops from their fields, and the soil is being tiled and made ready for new seed to be planted. Let's think about the farmers and their sewing of seed for a moment. When the farmers plant corn in a field they expect corn to grow and be harvested. It is a straightforward natural law that what we harvest what we plant.
The question for us to to ponder is 'what kind of harvest would you like to reap when it comes to your health, finances, and relationships?'
So what kind of seeds are we planting for ourselves?
Let us be reminded that the harvest is as a result of the seed planted. For those of us that are parents what kind of seeds have we or are we planting for our children? For those of us that are wives what kinds of seeds are we planting in our marriages? If we are in a relationship not married? What kind of seeds are we planting? If we are grandparents what kind of seeds are we planting? As employees or employers, what kind of seeds are we planting in our jobs and business?
Are they the best, healthiest sin free seeds? Will they yield an abundant, healthy, sin-free harvest?
Be a good farmer.
If we think of ourselves as farmers of our own lives always planting seeds and harvesting in all areas of our lives. There will be good crops and corrupted crops depending on the seed we sow. When we humble ourselves, step out of our own ego and allow God to teach us how to farm, plant, fertilise and cultivate the land of our minds, bodies, and souls and help us not to seduced by sin, we become more skilled at farming, we will be planting good seed, the right seed, that will grow and give us a healthy abundant harvest in our health, finances, and relationships. Our everyday living becomes rich and plentiful – our Christ living becomes easy.
Don’t be misled.
There may be people around you who mean well, offering you farming tips, bending the word of God to fit and suit the situation you find yourselves in and some who want to suck you into their way of thinking to validate their thinking, their emotional state, their actions, who try and teach you how to farm to meet their needs, the harvest of these will yield little or nothing they will be weak, poor and corrupt crops.
Seek wise counsel.
Before you plant anything begin by prepare the ground and take good solid advice. Don’t compromise Gods word and avoid ignoring His warning that the soil is poor soil, the seed is a corrupt seed, that the harvest will bring no return. Before you make any decision ask: Did God say? (Genesis 3:3) Galatians 6:7–8 (NLT)
7 Don’t be misled – you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant. 8 Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful nature will harvest decay and death from that sinful nature. But those who live to please the Spirit will harvest everlasting life from the Spirit.
