It seems obvious that if you want tomatoes, you should plant tomato seeds. But what if you plant lettuce seeds and expect tomatoes? How smart is that? I’m not being facetious. People do that all the time.
Have you ever heard someone complain about how sick they are or how badly they feel? Or, how about someone complaining about how much they hate their job or how they never seem to have enough money?
We’ve all heard it – people griping and complaining about any number of things. Maybe you’ve even heard yourself say these things! So, I ask you, do they ever get exceedingly blessed? No – why? Because they’re planting the wrong kind of seeds. They’re planting what they don’t want and expecting what they do want! They’re doing the same wrong thing over and over and expecting different results. Isn’t that a definition of insanity?
God says you can have what you say and you’ll reap what you sow. So what do you do? You sow what you want and the way you do that is with the words of your mouth. That’s what you’ve been doing all along and that’s the results you’ve been getting, but on the negative side. And in addition to this, you’re building and developing faith for all those negative things.
What you need to do is speak crop failure to all that negativity and begin speaking what God says. Put God’s Word in your mouth. Feed your spirit continuously with God’s promises. As you do this, faith for the promises will begin to develop. And over a period of time, you will begin to see changes in your circumstances.
All this effort takes diligence. You need to get into the Word of God and find the promises that pertain to your situation and begin sowing the incorruptible seed of God’s Word. Then you’ll reap a harvest that’s worth shouting about!
Mark 11:23-24 (KJV) 23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Galatians 6:7 (KJV) 7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
