The system which God created operates on the principle of seed and harvest. Same applies in the Christian realm. If you plant something, you will harvest, provided all other factors don’t hinder the process.
Now this is different from receiving. Harvesting is different from receiving. When you seed, you harvest, when you ask you receive: two different things.
In order to harvest, you should put something into the ground. It says in 2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. This is specifically talking about quantity. Then it says in Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. This is now talking about quality or type of seed.
The number one and principal seed that Jesus taught us is His Word. It says in Luke 8:11 explaining the parable of the sower Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. When you plant that seed in your heart, it will produce the God kind of results. Don’t expect to reap the God kind of results while you are sowing seeds of hatred, carnality etc in your heart. Sow the word of God in your life!!
Of course sometimes it might look as if harvest will not come, but it will!!! Just keep cultivating and taking care of your heart so that thorns and thistles of this life will not choke the word. Sometimes it may look like it’s seed time and then harvest. Follow after patience. Most of the times it’s seedtime seedtime seedtime seedtime seedtime seedtime and then harvest will come.
If you become familiar with the word of God, you need not to worry about other types of seeds like giving, the Word itself will teach you those.
