Summary: God wants us to prosper in every way possible. That is why He made provision for us to be blessed. God cannot multiply notjhing. When we sow seed which God provides, he multiplies that seed and it becomes a mighty harvest

Understanding Seed

God wants us to prosper in every way possible. That is why He made provision for us to be blessed.

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

The earth is going to remain forever. That is what the Bible teaches us. It may undergo a change as it has in the past, but it will remain forever. If we believe this, then we must believe that seedtime and harvest will remain with us forever into eternity. If we do not understand this principle now we will not appropriate it in eternity.

Seed can be something that is physical and also spiritual. Seed comes in many forms. For example, the Bible tells us that faith is a seed. We know that faith in its seed form has the potential of producing things that are beyond our imagination. Seed can therefore have many definitions. An idea that you have in your mind can be a seed that can lead to something that has never been created before. Your money is also a seed.

A seed also represents new beginnings. A new decision that you have made for your life can result in something that is good in the future. Everything begins with a seed. If you want to start something new you will have to find the seed that represents where you want to go. It can either be a physical seed or a spiritual seed.

1. A seed has different states

A seed has three states. It is either producing, or it is dormant, or it is dead and can never produce anything. A seed can lie dormant in a barn for many years, but can start producing the moment it is planted into the ground.

2. A seed is the source of life

If there is no seed, there cannot be life. Many people spend a lot of time and energy expecting things to happen for them. Remember, if there is no seed, there will be no harvest.

The seed is the source of life and there is no alternative to a seed. There is no short cut. If you want something, find the seed of what you want, and plant it.

3. A seed always produces something

Genesis 1:12 - And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.

Whatever seed you sow will always produce something. It will produce a harvest and will produce after its own kind. The seed you plant will determine what you are going to harvest.

4. The seed is the future

So many people consult fortune tellers so that someone can tell them the future, but when you look at your seed, you are able to look into the future.

We can determine our own future depending on how you apply the principle of seedtime and harvest.

Your seed can ensure that you will enjoy abundance and prosperity in the future. You can start determining your future by sowing the right seeds today. We have all been called to prosper and to have abundance of all things. God has set these principles in place for all eternity. All we need to do is sow.

If you need finances tomorrow you need to plant your seed of finances today because your seed will determine your harvest.

5. The seed must be planted

You cannot look at your seed and declare your future if you do not plant the seed. Things begin to happen immediately after the seed touches the soil. That is the miracle of the seed.

6. The seed must not be eaten

Nutritionists tell us that although the seed may look like food, it can harm your stomach because it contains poisons. Seed must be planted and not eaten.

If a farmer eats the seed there will be nothing to put into the ground the following year and there will be no harvest.

7. Sowing must be ongoing

Psalms 126:6 - He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Do not stop sowing seed. It must be a lifestyle and become a habit. You cannot sow seed once and expect to be blessed. Sowing seed and reaping a harvest is a continuous cycle.

8. The seed produces after its own kind

You cannot plant tomato seeds and expect to harvest corn. It does not work that way. The seed you plant is what you are will harvest. For example, if you want good and happy relationships you will need to sow seeds of kindness and love.
