God Gives Seed - Bible Devotional 13th January 2019

God Gives Seed

LUKE 8:11 NLT 11 "This is the meaning of the parable: The seed is God's word.

God usually gives us things in seed form. When we look at an acorn, we don't see an oak tree, or a forest of oak trees, but God can.

Ideas are seeds. When God desires to send a blessing into your life, usually He gives you an idea. When you act on the idea, blessings manifest in your life. (Of course, not all ideas are from God, so we should judge them before acting.)

2 CORINTHIANS 9:10 NLT 10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.

Most of what God gives us comes in seed form. This is why so many think God has failed to provide for them or that He doesn't care. It's because they did not recognize God's provision, because it came in seed form.

ISAIAH 55:10-11 NLT 10 "The rain and snow come down from the heavens and stay on the ground to water the earth. They cause the grain to grow, producing seed for the farmer and bread for the hungry. 11 It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

God gives us seed, but we must value it and protect it. If we are moved by the storms of circumstances that try to convince us God's Word will not work, we allow the devil to steal it from us.

MATTHEW 13:19,23 NKJ 19 "When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is he who received seed by the wayside. 23 "But he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty."

When we understand God's message and steadfastly act on it, regardless of circumstances or feelings, it always results in a harvest of blessing. God's Word always works!

SAY THIS: God has given me valuable seed for a purpose.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
]1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
