A seed is a supernatural blessing.
Genesis 1:11 in the Amplified Bible says:
“And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.”
Every seed carries a specific genetic instruction on what it shall produce.
We don’t have to tell a watermelon seed to produce watermelons because that invisible instruction is hard-coded in each seed.
Everyone knows apple seeds bring forth an apple harvest and peach seeds bring forth a harvest of peaches. Seeds produce a harvest after their own kind.
It has always been this way and it will never change. The seed you plant always determines the kind of harvest you reap.
I cannot stress this point too strongly. It is not the kind of harvest you need that determines the kind of harvest you will receive. It is the kind of seed you plant. Don’t fool yourself.
Luke 6:38 says:
“Give, and it [that which you have given] shall be given unto you”
Notice the word it in this verse. It is a powerful word. Let me paraphrase verse 38 to show just how big this word. . .it. . .really is.
Give apples, and it (apples) will be given to you.
Give clothing, and it (clothing) will be given to you.
Give money, and it (money) will be given to you.
Now read verse 38 this way:
“Give money, and it (money) will be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men pour money into your bosom. For with the same measure that you give money, it (money) will be given back to you!”
Personalize the verse.
“Give money, and it (money) will be given unto <<Your Name>>, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men pour money into <<his/her>> bosom. For with the same measure that <<Your Name>> gives money, it (money) will be given back to <<him/her>>!”
We don’t need to fool ourselves. If we expect to receive a financial harvest from God, we must plant some money seeds into the work of God.
Galatians 6:7 in the Amplified Bible says:
“For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap.”
Personalize this last sentence in Galatians 6:7.
“For whatever <<Your Name>> sows, that and that only is what <<he/she>> will reap.”
The kind of seed you plant is the kind of seed you will reap
Now let’s go a little further by looking at specific seeds sown by King David in the midst of a crisis when nothing else seemed to work.
2 Samuel 24:25 in the Amplified Bible says;
“David built there an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the Lord heeded the prayers for the land, and Israel’s plague was stayed.”
First, David made a deliberate decision to honor God before making his request.
Second, when David built his altar. . .he had a specific purpose in mind.
Third, his seed [outlined for sin offerings] . . . with his prayer. . . means his offering brought the desire result.
Fourth, David’s specific offering solved a problem when nothing else would.
David aimed his seed to meet a specific need.
Let’s consider the specific seed of deliverance Job sowed for his friends in Job 42:10 in the Amplified Bible which says:
“And the Lord turned the captivity of Job and restored his fortunes, when he prayed for his friends; also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.”
First, things turn around for Job when he offered a specific seed.
Second, Job’s seed was a prayer of deliverance for his friends.
Third, God gave Job twice as much as he had before the enemy’s attacks on his family and fortune.
Fourth, Job aimed his seed at a specific need.
Fifth, Job’s specific seed not only brought a return from God. . .but he was also blessed by the people he prayed for.
Job 42:11 in the Amplified Bible says:
“Every man also gave him a piece of money, and every man an earring of gold.”
Next, in Isaiah 55:10-11 we discover how the seeds we send out. . .bring a harvest. The two verses say:
“For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.”
First, when we sow a seed we need to do so with specific instructions.
Second, when we send out His Word (a seed) it will never return to us void.
Third, a money seed has the same potential as the Word when it comes to sowing.
Fourth, our seed. . .our Word will not return to us void.
Fifth, Isaiah 55:11 says the seed you send out “. . .shall accomplish that which I please and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” Send your seed with instructions.
Sixth, pray the Word. . .and pray over your seed.
Seventh, name your seed for whatever purpose you intend it. Your seed will obey because it has supernatural abilities in its financial DNA. It has the Word of God for a foundation.
Next, let’s look at the precious specific seed sowed by the widow at Zarephath.
1 Kings 17:9-14 in the Amplified Bible says:
“Arise, go to Zarephath, which belongs to Sidon, and dwell there. Behold, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you. 10 So he arose and went to Zarephath. When he came to the gate of the city, behold, a widow was there gathering sticks. He called to her, Bring me a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.
11 As she was going to get it, he called to her and said, Bring me a morsel of bread in your hand.
12 And she said, As the Lord your God lives, I have not a loaf baked but only a handful of meal in the jar and a little oil in the bottle. See, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and bake it for me and my son, that we may eat it—and die.
13 Elijah said to her, Fear not; go and do as you have said. But make me a little cake of [it] first and bring it to me, and afterward prepare some for yourself and your son.
14 For thus says the Lord, the God of Israel: The jar of meal shall not waste away or the bottle of oil fail until the day that the Lord sends rain on the earth.”
First, God commanded the widow to provide for the prophet. The New Living Translation says God instructed the woman to provide for the prophet.
Second, the prophet gave the widow a specific instruction about what she was to sow. “Bring me a morsel of cake [bread] in your hand.
Third, the widow understood and shared the severity of her situation with the prophet. In sowing seeds you don’t ignore your problem but you always focus on the solution.
Fourth, when sowing specific seeds. . .take authority over fear. Elijah said “Fear not; go and do as you have said.”
Fifth, the prophet told her to make his cake [bread] first and then she could make what was left for her and her son. In aiming our seed we must not base the amount of the seed on what we have but rather. . .what God instructs us to give.
Sixth, the widow woman was sowing for a mega harvest of meal and oil.
Seventh, the widow received a perpetual harvest of meal and oil until the rains came again.
Which leads me to our last point. . .the seven keys for aiming our seed whatever our specific need.
First, talk with God about the specific purpose for your seed.
Second, what do you believe God will accomplish through your seed?
Third, is the purpose of your seed in line with the Word of God?
Fourth, speak out loud to your seed. Command it where to go and what to do.
Fifth, continue confessing the Word over your seed.
Sixth, recognize that aiming your seed can help you release your faith for miracle manifestation in your life.
Seventh, continually look to God as your source.
Aiming your seed will energize your faith. . .releasing an expectation for supernatural results.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
