Understanding The Seed time and Harvest Principles for Prosperity
Do you know someone who has struggled with finances? Have you seen the person who has to isolate themselves because they do not
want to be a burden or who leeches because they have not experienced the financial breakthrough for themselves. Maybe you have not seen the isolator or the leech, but you have seen the person that has to buy everything cheap or at a discount. Or even, maybe you see the person that has had their eyes set on reaching many people with their message, passions, or talents, but just cannot seem to break through in the area of finances.
Maybe you have been that person. I can vouch and say I have been that person. Especially in the days of being a single mother, I had several instances where I felt that I was on the brink of financial collapse, and I cried out to God. And, to be completely honest, when I am not in communication and reliance on God, I can still struggle. Abundance is not something that can be secured without God. He is the source of abundance. You know what? 100% of the time, He heard my desperate cries. He may not have activated my breakthrough as I would have liked (by giving me a deposit in the bank), but He would open my eyes to provision. Sometimes spontaneous discounts would surface, overpaid bills would become noticed, a connection would present a money-making opportunity, or the travel (that I thought that I needed money for) would be canceled. On other instances, He will release an angel to bring money or resources to you. You don’t know your greatest good as God does! You don’t see the beginning, the end, or very much in between. Even history is limited in your sight, so you must know that the one who was present thru it all (and even created it) has much more capability to know what to give you and when. Trust that. Breath in and breath out with that thought.
“For 30 seconds just ponder the thought that He knows the beginning, the end, and everything in between…”
Ok. We are back. Now, my question to you is do you know how they can overcome their financial crises? If the financial crises is yours, do you know how you can overcome the financial crises? What if I told you that the answer lies in the seed time and harvest principles?
If you are experiencing poverty, ask yourself these questions, check the action steps below, and listen to the attached audio for agreement in your breakthrough:
- Identify the root: What is the root of the poverty? Is it lack of self-control? Negative thinking? Lust? Envy? Unforgiveness? Or, another root?
Are you addictively buying due to a childhood trauma? Are you scared to loose, and excessively cushioning to avoid that? Are you trying to keep up with the “Jones’s”? Or, what is your root?
- Inventory what you have: Are you maximizing the use of all that God has given you?
Who are you connected to? What are their talents and their connections? How could you serve one another better if you inventoried your connections? What ideas have you had, and what did you do with them? What prayers have been prayed over you, and have you aligned your faith with them? What money do you have and how do you use it? What goods do you have and how do you use them?
- Revamp your strategy: How could you uproot the block? How could you be more effective with what you have?
The Bible tells us that God created life with seed in it. Without the seed, we cannot reproduce. For children, a seed must be planted into the womb. For plants, a seed must be planted into the ground. For relationships, a seed must be planted in the minds, soul, and spirits. For ministries, seeds must be sown financially, spiritually, and physically. For finances, a seed must be sown physically and spiritually.
In the Bible, James tells us that faith and deeds are required. James 2:14-17 says:
“What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.”
Therefore, we know that you have to sow physically and spiritually for breakthrough on Earth. It is not enough to say, “God. Release your blessings now”. You also have to sow a seed in the physical realm. So, if your unsure of what that seed should be, ask God, “Father, your word says that in the beginning you created all living things with a seed to multiply. I desire to grow your Kingdom here on the Earth. I activate the angels to ascend into the second Heaven and bring a message that tells me what I should sow physically into the Earth. I activate angels to bring a message that tells me what I should do and where I should go to manifest your Kingdom in my life now”.
1. Assess the places that you are currently sowing. Where is your time, your prayers, your money, your ideas, and your connections sown? Are they sown into things that advance the Kingdom?
2. Align with the Kingdom. Do not sow to churches who are not open to the presence of God and the fellowship of the saints! What else is church for? If you do not get agreement for the successful accomplishment of your assignment, then seek God about whether you should be sowing there. If you feel like the presence of God is bridled by a church (like they are not open to recieving the fullness of God), seek God about whether you should be sowing there. If you are not able to fellowship and be encouraged by like-minded believers seeking spiritual growth, seek God about whether you should be sowing there.
3. Pray over your seed
4. Sow it into fertile soil. Fertile soil is where the entirety of the Kingdom is being requested on the Earth. The gifts, the talents, the fruits of the spirit, and the Word of God is being taught and applied.
5. Receive your harvest. Your confidence will be increased. Your wisdom will be increased. Others will see you with a glimpse of what God does, and treat you accordingly. Your gifts and talents will be in use. The fruits of the Spirit will surround you.
I am privileged to have done an interview with Pastor Bryson Baylor, where we discuss the seed time and harvest principles. Collectively, we have each released alot of content about seed time and harvest principles. Pastor Bryson Baylor is the author of “The Spirit of Wealth”, Life Coach Tiffany Kelly has just recently published a video on monetizing your talents, and I am the author of “12 Undeniable Laws For Prosperity”. This interview will bring a collection of thought together on seed time and harvest, and because of the agreement of the guests and I, you will be released from the hold of Poverty by reading this article and listening to this interview in Jesus Name.
This playlist will also give you loads of value on seed time and harvest principles:
Let me close with some scripture and prayer for your financial breakthrough. Job 22:21-30 says:
“Submit to God and be at peace with him;
in this way prosperity will come to you.
Accept instruction from his mouth
and lay up his words in your heart.
If you return to the Almighty, you will be restored:
If you remove wickedness far from your tent
and assign your nuggets to the dust,
your gold of Ophir to the rocks in the ravines,
then the Almighty will be your gold,
the choicest silver for you.
Surely then you will find delight in the Almighty
and will lift up your face to God.
You will pray to him, and he will hear you,
and you will fulfill your vows.
What you decide on will be done,
and light will shine on your ways.
When people are brought low and you say, ‘Lift them up!’
then he will save the downcast.
He will deliver even one who is not innocent,
who will be delivered through the cleanness of your hands.”
Father, I thank you that you word says that if we submit to you and are at peace with you that prosperity will come to us in all of our ways. I thank you that you see fit to prosper your children. I thank you that you sent your son to pay the price for our open heaven. I thank you that your word says that we are forgiven by the blood of Jesus Christ, and I apply the blood of Jesus from the top of our heads to the soles of our feet. May unforgiveness be uprooted. May demonic covenants or open access ways be canceled and closed. May the sins of our generations be wiped clean by the blood of Jesus. Father, we align ourselves now with access to heavenly abundance. We are grateful that you word says that the grass on the field and the birds in the air do not worry about their provisions, and you care more for us. We align ourselves right now with your will and Kingdom access, and release provisions now. We send angels on assignment to fetch the provisions for our increase. We send angels forth to tap people on the shoulders to bless our ministry and the works of our hands. We decree that every bill in our homes will be paid and your Kingdom will be exalted in Jesus name. Amen.
