"While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease" (Genesis 8:22, AMP)
Did you know that when we say prayers, when we are believing God for something, it's like planting spiritual seeds? It's a principle that God established at the beginning of time. We determine the harvest we have in our lives by the seeds we sow.
In the natural, think about how the farmer waits for his harvest. He knows that if he protects his seed he will get an abundant harvest. He waters it, pulls the weeds, and keeps the soil soft.
In the same way, we have to protect our spiritual seed. We can't allow the “weeds” of negative thinking to come in. We have to pull them out by simply saying, “God, I know You're faithful. My trust and confidence is in You.” We have to water our seed by staying full of praise. We have to keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. That's how we protect our seed. And when you protect your seed, when you stay in faith and keep the right attitude, it won't be long before you see that harvest of blessing in every area of your life.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
"Father in heaven, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I declare that my trust and confidence is in You. Thank You for hearing my prayers. I know that the seed of Your Word will produce an abundant harvest in my life. In Jesus' Name. Amen."
By Joel and Victoria
