Reaping a Harvest

While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease.– Genesis 8:22 NKJV

After the flood, God promised Noah that seedtime and harvest would never cease. This wasn’t a clever slogan but a perpetual promise – a principle true for all creation! It was true after the flood and always will be true.

We see this principle in operation every day around us. Farmers and gardeners know they cannot reap a harvest unless they plant seeds. And the kind of seeds they plant determines what kind of harvest they will receive and whether they will reap a little or a lot.

This principle applies to every aspect of life. If we want to reap a harvest, we first must plant seeds. It’s also true for finances, relationships, and even spiritual blessings. We must let go of our seeds and plant them in the ground. We must give if we want to receive (Luke 6:38).

Ask God to show you how seedtime and harvest apply to you. Think about the harvests you want to receive and the seeds in your hands. Then start sowing. If you want to receive more love, sow more love. If you want more blessings, bless others. If you want more financial resources, give more to God’s Kingdom.

If you cling to your seeds, you cannot expect to reap a harvest. You need to plant your seeds. Let them go and then watch them grow! The more you plant, the greater the harvest
