“For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life” (Gal. 6:8).
This is a kingdom principle. There is a time for sowing and a time for reaping. Whatever seed we sow, we shall reap one day. The seeds we sow in faith today will become the harvest of blessings tomorrow-in due season. Our seeds will not bear fruit instantly, it will take time. It will also not take your own time but God's appointed time.
It takes time for every seed to first sprout, germinate, bud, grow flowers and then begin to bear fruits. If this is the case, then our seeds that we sow in faith would take time to mature. It can take a day, a week, months or even years. Keep watering, fertilising, pruning and weeding around your seed for in due season it would bear fruits.
Meanwhile, we should honour God's laws of seedtime and harvest, of sowing and reaping, for "he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. Where we sow our seeds will determine the fruit thereof. If we should sow on a clayey soil a seed that can thrive in a loamy soil, we will lose out. If we sow to our flesh, we will automatically reap corruption but he who sows to the spirit will reap everlasting life. If only we desire everlasting life, then we have no option but to sow in the spirit. Give to your life totally to God, serve Him with all that you have. "In Gal. 6:7-9, God promises us that "in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart." Have faith, God is saying; keep believing.
Lord, keep my heart believing till harvest time in Jesus’ name. Amen.
