GO, SOW AND GROW
One thing I am really looking forward to is early spring and preparing my seed beds for sowing. Gardeners are visionaries! We try to imagine an end result, the best outcome [AN ABUNDANT HARVEST OF FRUIT AND VEG] [FLOWERS TOO] But I have to first prepare the ground in a way that will bring out the best in a crop. For example: potatoes need a sightly low, acidic PH and not too much nitrogen in the soil, which causes big top growth, but poor tubers. Whereas Brassica’s require a more alkaline PH and high nitrogen to encourage large leafy growth and solid heads! Apples need pruning, strawberries grow great with a straw bedding. So, good preparation is vital. Just imagine all that money and time spent on seed, plant food, compost etc, but you never gave a thought to knowledgable preparation! Gardening is a science as well as an art, and food-producing activity; and it requires a lot of planning and forethought.
Now, transfer that to the spiritual and you’ll see it’s not a case of sitting back, folding of the hands and hoping for the best. Sometimes you just have to “GO, SOW AND GROW!”
Galatians 6:9 says this: So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. New Living Translation. Reaping a harvest has everything to do with DOING. Preparation, grafting, getting out and doing something good, right and worthwhile.
This is my paraphrase of Galatians 6:9 “NEVER GIVE UP AND DON’T LOSE HEART, NEITHER GET DOWNCAST. BUT KEEP ENCOURAGED, BE COURAGEOUS, DO SOMETHING GOOD. AND WHATEVER YOU DO, DO IT WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND YOU WILL HAVE A FAVOURABLE OUTCOME, A DESIRED CONSEQUENCE A RICH HARVEST BECAUSE YOU REAP THAT WHICH YOU SOW. SO, SOW TO THE GOOD, INTO THE KINGDOM AND INTO PEOPLES LIVES ESPECIALLY THOSE OF THE HOUSEHOLD OF FAITH. IT WILL COME ABOUT! IT IS A NATURAL LAW AND A SUPERNATURAL LAW, IT’S GOD’S LAW AND GOD’S WAY OF DOING THINGS. IF YOU SOW GOOD SEED YOU’LL REAP A HARVEST OF GOOD THINGS! BLESSING AND FAVOUR, SUCCESS AND PROSPERITY. GOD WILL OPEN HIS STOREHOUSE TO YOU. HOWEVER, JUST AS A NATURAL HARVEST COMES ABOUT IN THE RIGHT SEASON, SO TOO IN THE SUPERNATURAL. IT TOO IS A KINGDOM LAW, YOU WILL REAP AT THE APPROPRIATE TIME AND SEASON.
So, go for it this year, in the natural and the supernatural. So, go find your spiritual garden and get preparing and sowing.
