Your potential is a seed. Your vision is a seed. Your children are seeds. Your money is a seed. The word of God is a seed. Your time is a seed. Your wife is a seed.
The only reason why the devil wants your seed is to replicate. Did you know that the devil has no power to reproduce by himself? The devil has no seed of his own. He has got no power to reproduce. Therefore the only strategy he uses to reproduce is to recruit your seed! And take them captive and keep them under his control. So the devil chases after your son, he chases after your daughter, he comes after your husband, he comes after your wife. In other words he comes after the seed of the children of the righteous. He wants to rob your seed.
1 Peter 5:8 KJV
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour
You need to understand the scheme of your adversary. The devil will chase after your seed by attacking you from all sides. He will come to steal your seed. He will be satisfied as long as he can get your seed because that is how he can destroy you and your entire household.
(John 10:10) he comes to steal destroy and kill…..
THE GREATER YOUR VISION THE GREATER THE BATTLE
You can more or less predict the harvest of your seed by the battle that goes on over your seed. The greater your potential for the work of The Lord in the Kingdom of God the greater your adversary will try to snuff you off. He wants to rob your seed and immobilize you. He will use different strategies to undermine you.
The reason why the devil fights you so hard. He fights your family, he fights your finances, he fights your children, he fights your marriage is because he knows you carry a quantum power in your seed for the future.
Here is something you need to know. The devil is not interested in your past. He is only interested in your future potential. He will never waste his time dealing with your past but he is interested in the potential of your future. That’s the reason why, he is after the seed of your idea, the seed of your vision and the seed of your household.
Your seed is about what you are going to accomplish in the future. Your seed is about what you are going to produce in the Kingdom of God. Your seed is about your power and authority you carry to tread on scorpions and serpents and waging war against the dark forces. Your seed is about using your light to dispel darkness and setting the captives free and healing the sick.
You can check out the scriptures. The only reason all the male children were killed and eliminated when Moses was born was that he wanted to snuff off the seed potential that Moses was carrying to deliver the whole nation who was under slavery and bondage into freedom.
Again when Jesus was born, King Herod passed a decree to kill all the male children from infant to 2 years. Can you imagine 2000 babies were killed. Why? Because king Herod knew there was a King of Kings that was born in the east to bring light to the world who has come to set the captives free and heal the sick and the lame, the deaf and blind. Satan could not stand the birth of this powerful seed and therefore he wanted to crush the seed by all means.
RIGHT ATMOSPHERE WILL DETERMINE THE RIGHT HARVEST
Atmosphere is a very crucial matter that determines your harvest. Atmosphere is where you sow your seed. Don’t sow you seeds at random- indiscriminately. There are good ground and rocky ground. There are good soil and bad soil.
Please understand not everybody is a good ground. Don’t waste your time sowing good seeds with carnal people.
One example: People who don’t respect your time will not respect your wisdom. People who switch off their phone and don’t respond to your call. People who only look for you in times of need. People who are always defensive, people who give excuses and lie to you all the time.
You know what? Some people don’t belong to your boat. Some people don’t belong to your journey. You need to get rid of such people and cut them off before they exploit your goodness and take you for a long ride. You must sow it, in the right atmosphere. Everything happens in a right atmosphere. Everything God wants to do will happen in the right atmosphere.
YOUR SEED WILL FRUIT IN THE RIGHT GROUND
Your seed will only thrive in the right ground. Your seed will not take root when you sow it in the wrong people. If people don’t have an appetite for your seed then it’s the wrong ground to sow your seed. You know what? The atmosphere in which you sow your seed is a very critical matter. Watch out for the people who say they know it all. They are the most dangerous people. Therefore, you need to get rid of some people who are unproductive. I don’t care how much you give to unproductive and lazy people, they will still sit there waiting for hand-outs upon hand-outs..
PITY PARTY PEOPLE WILL GO NOWHERE
Why should you be wasting your time with people who are going nowhere? You know what? There are people who are sitting right below a treasure of gold and yet not making an effort to look for it. Even when you point out to them it’s there, they will come up with a flood of excuses. What can you say of such people!? You and I will have to give an account to God as to what you did with the seed that God has given you.
GOD EXPECTS YOU TO TILE THE GROUND
Matthew 25:14-30: Parable of the talents. The master entrusted seeds to each one of his servant. But not all of them sowed the seeds to produce a harvest. The one talent man refused to sow and therefore did not receive a harvest.
Returning after a long absence, the master asks his servants for an accounting. To the first two servants he said “well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things, I will set you over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.”
GOD WILL REBUKE LAZY PEOPLE
The third servant, however, has merely hidden his talent in a hole in the ground, and he said to his master, I was afraid. But his lord answered him, “You wicked and slothful, lazy servant. You ought therefore to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received back my own, with interest. Take away therefore the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents.” Apparently he held his seed in his hands and refused to sow and therefore it did not multiply. Your seed will have no power to produce a harvest unless you let it go and sow it in good ground.
For to everyone who has,will be given, and he will have abundance, but from him who doesn’t have, even that which he has will be taken away.
Here is a divine principle that needs to be understood. God will never entrust into your hands what you can’t value and care about. When He gave Adam the Garden of Eden it was sufficiently adequate and it was abundantly prosperous. But you know what? He did not expect Adam to just take it easy and do nothing about it. He said to Adam to tile the ground and take care of it so that it will produce much.
(Gen.1:28-29) And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
The question I wish to ask you again, what are you doing with the seed that God has placed in your hands? You say I don’t have enough! What is it that you are holding in your hand so tightly right now that you have become so dependent upon? Listen! If you refuse to let it go. You will remain where you are!! You will stay there! No matter how justified your reasons may be. I want to tell you today if you don’t throw it to the ground and let it go, you have nothing left! Isaac sowed despite the famine and reaped a hundredfold. Isaac was not afraid of what he saw around him; rather, he was impressed by what God promised that He would do. He had faith to believe in the God of Abraham who will never fail him nor forsake himself. Therefore he moved forward to sow in the time of famine.
