Put Your Seed In The Ground!

The month of Harvest can be very interesting to the mind and heart of one with great anticipation. We as children of God are always believing for God’s blessings to shower on us. But the question is, have you put your seed in the ground? As a little girl I remember my uncle who had acres and acres of sugarcane and how he would rise early in the mornings and work his fields. He would make sure the soil was good and they would work those grounds and work those grounds  in seed-time. He planted in hopes that when harvest came his cane would grow strong and be healthy. But sometimes in mid season the white-flies would show up, fungus would come or there would be weeds that came along. He kept working his fields and making sure he kept close eye on his cane and if anything showed up he would follow the procedure to eliminate it. Sure enough when Harvest time came he would have healthy sugar cane and made GREAT profits off of it. I enjoyed staying on their farm because we always was able to eat some of the sugar cane and it was so sweet to the taste. In this season we have to remind ourselves that we should not judge each day by the harvest we reap, but by the seed we put in the ground. Every day we have to make sure to plant seeds in the Kingdom of God. Make sure you are sowing in good soil and that you are watching your seed that the enemy won’t come and choke out your seed like Jesus warned about in Matthew 13: 1-23.  How do we watch our seed you ask? By keeping your life, your deeds, your words, and your actions in line with God’s will.  Make sure that you are not choking out your seed with your deeds and actions.  Make sure that your lifestyle don’t cause fungus to contaminate your seed. Make sure that you are not allowing the words off your tongue to become the flies that causes damage to your seed. Make sure you work your soil in excellence and place your seed in fertile ground. Protect your seed so that when Harvest comes you will reap the Harvest. You cannot reap if you do not sow.  The principle of God is REAL  Gal.6:7 states, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” what I love most about God is just like my uncle would share his cane with us, you too will be able to share your harvest with your family. They will be able to enjoy the sweetness of your harvest right along with you. But, you cannot reap if you do not sow. Today decide to decide what is it you really want to reap, and make sure that is what you sow.  Although we are in Harvest season, start getting ready now for next season by putting your seed in the ground. If you sow in abundance you shall also reap in abundance. Sow and Reap your Harvest.


Father, I ask You to give me a heart to sow. Make sure I live a life that will protect my seeds sow that in due time and season I will reap if I faint not. Give me a heart to not focus only on the Harvest but that I will be careful about my seeds also. Your word says, I will reap what I sow. Lord, please help me to be careful that whatever I sow it brings Glory and Honor to you. In Jesus Name……AMEN!
