By Ann: A good seed, in itself, cannot yield a heavenly harvest. For the harvest to grow, it also needs soil, water, oxygen, sunlight, and time.
Seeds: What is it that you want to achieve? We all have different visions of abundance, so you have to identify how it looks for you.
Soil: Where are you sowing the seeds? Is it planted in love or fear?
Water: How are you nurturing your seed? Are you giving it love?
Oxygen: Prayer is the breath of life. Bond with God and ask for help with ALL things.
Sunlight: Believe and trust in God, knowing that God loves you and supplies all of your needs for your greatest good.
Time: Wait for your harvest to reap. Waiting builds perseverance and increases your faith. Time strengthens you and prepares you for the heavenly harvest
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows; Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:7-9
In addition to the good seed, be mindful of the spirit in which you sow. Love is the action required by all elements to produce a healthy harvest. For example, it may appear that another person has achieved better than we have in career, finances, relationships, etc. Do not speak negatively about them, sabotage them, or do wrong in hopes of getting ahead. This behavior stems from insecurities created by the fear of not being good enough. The power of love will defeat anything manifested through fear.
The good seed is “success” but if it is planted in the soil of fear, watered with jealousy and anger, deprived of oxygen and sunshine which is asking in prayer and believing that God will provide, it will produce destruction.
Another person’s abundance is testimony to what God can do in our own life. Do not be angered by the success of others, but allow it to inspire you. The Angels are here to guide us to our own harvest of prosperity. Please remember that God loves others and God loves YOU! Trust God with EVERYTHING and have faith because God is faithful.
Ask God to show you your true intent and what is motivating you. Knowing what, where, and how you are sowing empowers you to make good choices. With time, you will reap a heavenly harvest.
It is reaping season! At some point you may recognize unhealthiness in your harvest, but know that you have the power to change it through pruning. Pruning cuts away negativity so that your heavenly harvest will flourish abundantly. Pruning creates positive change through the power of FORGIVENESS.
“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4:31-32
The pruning process may require you to forgive yourself and/or others. Not only is cutting away negativity a key to continuous healthy growth, but not doing so can destroy your harvest. In other words, lack of forgiveness can stunt your spiritual growth and it can destroy your spirit.
