YOUR SEED HAS NO POWER TO PRODUCE A HARVEST UNTIL YOU GIVE IT AWAY
IF YOU ARE EXPECTING SOMETHING FROM NOTHING YOU ARE WASTING YOUR TIME
Your seed has no power to multiply unless you let it go.
John 12:24 “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”
YOU NEED TO SACRIFICE TO PARTNER WITH JESUS FOR A MIRACLE
The Young boy in John chapt 6 was willing to give his 5 barley loaves and two fish to Jesus to produce a harvest of multiplication. What he gave multiplied into a huge harvest and fed an enormous group of hungry people.
Here is what we need to understand. If he had kept the 5 barley loaves and 2 fish for himself it would have only satisfied his hunger and left the rest go hungry. Instead he gave it away and it multiplied to feed 5000 hungry people. What an awesome miracle God can do to your seed if you are willing to give it away.
A LOT OF CHRISTIANS ARE DEFEATED BECAUSE WE ARE IGNORANT OF GOD’S ECONOMY
What is it that you are struggling with so long today? You are frustrated! You are disappointed! You have been waiting for a breakthrough, you have been longing for an answer. You attempted every method, you have tried everything possible within your ability to try to resolve your problem. But unfortunately you are not getting there! Take your seed and sow it for a miracle that you need right now. Don’t try to manipulate this principle just because we are under grace. If you are expecting something from nothing, you are not going to see anything in your life.
The Bible says Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fish, looked up to heaven, gave thanks, blessed it and gave them to the disciples to distribute to the multitude. The scripture says and they all ate and were filled and you know what? 12 baskets full of fragments were left over on top of it. Isn’t awesome what God can do if only you are willing to give your seed away!?
A SEED PRINCIPLE
In God’s economy there is an established principle that God has given us; that everything begins with a seed. I want you know that the Kingdom of God operates on “A Seed Principle.” Everything God does He does it with a seed.
The word of God is a seed. The Kingdom of God is a seed. When the seed fertilises the egg, life is given birth. Life begins in a seed. Without the seed nothing happens. Your next harvest is in your seed.
How many of you know, that anyone can count the number of seeds in an apple but only God knows the number of apples in a seed. You know what? You cannot determine the size of your harvest by looking at your seed. That is beyond your capacity to comprehend.
There is something very powerful about the seed. If God is going to do anything powerful in your life then He will give you a seed. God wants to work with your seed. Don’t take for granted nor ignore the seeds that God brings into your life.
Sometimes it’s a seed of an idea. Sometimes it’s a seed of a vision. Sometimes it can be a seed of a revelation.
Don’t ever say, don’t ever complain, that I have just got a handful of seeds. Remember everything starts small. Everything had a small beginning. In order to reach the mountain top you have to go through the valley experience.
On the other hand, here is something crucial that we need to watch out for the schemes of the enemy; the devil will always use fear tactic to confuse you. He will scare you with the uncertainty of times, the poor economy and the pressures of life. As a result you hold your seed so tightly, unwilling to let go and eat it by yourself. This can be the worst tragedy that can ever happen to you. Listen! Isaac sowed in the time of famine and he reaped a hundredfold. If you eat your seed, it will only feed you for a day. But if you sow your seed it will feed you for a life time.
YOU GOT TO SOW IT, IN ORDER TO GROW IT
The question I want to ask you is that, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR SEED THAT GOD HAS PLACED IN YOUR HAND?
I know some people who are carrying a powerful seed in them and yet cursing the day in which they are living simply because of ignorance.
You got to scatter what God has deposited in your life. Don’t scatter indiscriminately but sow strategically, sow in good ground. The Bible says in Mark chapter 4:26-27 The Kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seeds on the ground and should sleep by night and rise by day and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how.
It’s God who grows your seed; that’s a part of God’s favour and blessing, you don’t have anything to do with that because the seed produces crop by itself.
Don’t ever get involved in this process which belongs to God, neither ever boast that you are responsible or take credit for your blessings.
Don’t ever say look what I have done! Look what I have achieved! Look how I have increased my barns because of my cleverness! Don’t ever do that!
You know what? There are other people who have worked as hard as you have worked. But unfortunately tragedy had struck them and wiped out everything they had laboured for all their life. So don’t ever boast! Whatever you have got, remember it is by the grace of God. So don’t take too much credit for what God has blessed you with.
It’s not all about you. It’s the power that is locked into your seed. Only God can unlock it. God will let the seed do its work. If God is not involved in your harvest you labour in vain. You are wasting your time.
The question is again, what are you doing with your seed?
BE CAREFUL WHERE YOU SOW YOUR SEED
Your seed will not bear fruit until you sow it in the right place. I want you to be aware that your seed carries a powerful potential for your future. There is indeed a QUANTUM CAPACITY locked in your seed. Nobody can understand the potential. Nobody can comprehend the capacity. It’s beyond your understanding to measure the potential harvest your seed is carrying. In other words, you sow the seed and God will grow it. You don’t know how it’s going to work. You have no clue how it’s going to grow.
If you put you seed in the wrong place the devil will come after your seed. The devil will always go for your seed. Therefore, you need to guard your seed.
Listen! If you take what belongs to God, for example your tithe and try to buy a car or buy something to fulfil your own selfish desire you need to watch out. That is considered stolen money.
Malachi 3:8 says: “Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, ‘How do we rob you?’ In tithes and offerings.”
Matt 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
What is it that you have cherished so dearly and so long in your life that you struggle to keep your grip on to it so tightly? Have you ever realized that you are virtually locked into a life without freedom? Living with unnecessary anxiety, uncertainties and frantic phobia of your future? Is it your wealth? Is it your position? Your plans? Your children? Your relationship? What is the legacy after all that you are going to leave behind when you leave this world?
Remember that young boy who had nothing except 5 loaves and 2 fish, gave it away to produce a harvest of food for 5000 hungry people. Of course humanly, 5 loaves and 2 fish was certainly not enough to feed the 5000 people but it became a seed in their hand for a miracle.
Luke 18:27 But Jesus said, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
