When I left our home this afternoon to travel to Barbados, I noticed pumpkins growing up next to our house. These pumpkins seemed to have come from nowhere! Then I remembered that a few months ago my wife LaVerne sowed a few pumpkin seeds. Today, pumpkins are everywhere!
That prolific pumpkin crop reminds me that God has called you and me to sow His Word. It works like this. Every time we pray in alignment with the truth of God’s Word and speak it to others, we sow dynamic spiritual seeds that will grow in people’s lives. When Jesus explained the concept of sowing and reaping, he said, “The farmer…brings God’s message to others…the good soil represents the hearts of those who truly accept God’s message and produce a plentiful harvest for God—thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much as was planted…” (Mark 4:14,20 TLB).
When we sow the seed of the Word of God into our own lives and into the lives of others, God works through us to produce a supernatural spiritual crop. It may not happen the first day, or the first week, but it will happen. And sowing spiritual seeds is more than just thinking about it…it is actually saying it! The Bible tells us to confess with our mouth… (Romans 10:9). Speaking the Word of God to ourselves and to others is powerful and releases dynamic spiritual seeds that will grow into an amazing harvest!
We sow these dynamic spiritual seeds into other’s lives through prayer and words of encouragement. And we sow dynamic spiritual seeds into our own lives when we speak the truth of the Word to ourselves. Remember, our God has promised He will produce a crop through the seeds that we have sown. His word is dynamic…spiritual seeds with the promise of a great harvest! You can do all things through Christ today who gives you strength! (Philippians 4:13)
