Do you have Seed Faith.?
(More on 2 Corinthians Chapter 9)
2 Corinthians 9:8-10- “God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written “He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever. May He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,”
Everything in life starts with a seed—including the things we receive by faith. Give what you have in your hand to give, that’s Seed Faith. God is the One who makes all grace abound toward us and provides us sufficiency in all things. Meaning..All things that are “beneficial” for your life come directly from God’s hands.
Did you know You are given sufficiency and even a “bounty” so that you are able to do good works.? Do you take notice to the blessings God has supplied you with to help others or do you focus more on it as being all yours.? You are blessed in order to be a blessing to others! -Genesis 12:2 says, “...I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.” Did you know sufficiency means “self satisfaction” “contentedness” or “competence”.? These are all features of a believer when whose life is truly blessed by these characteristics as God increases them.
Read the parable of the sower Matthew chapter 13:3-9 God who gave you seed in the first place is the One who meets your basic needs, multiplies your seeds sown into an abundance that you can share with others, and that is not all. He then increases you spiritually with love, joy, peace, and all of the other fruit of the Spirit flowing freely in your life. Which are “the fruits of your righteousness.”
How great is God! You have NO LACK IN HIM- only potential!
This is all in the bible. He gives us these words and many others found throughout to encourage us to increase our giving.
Genesis 8:22, God says, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest . . . shall not cease.”
Recognize that God is Your Source. Give so that it may be given unto you. With that being said your focus shouldn’t be on the blessing you will receive. The real blessing is the joy from what others can receive by or through you. Have great expectations in what God will do.
A seed planted and will be multiplied many times.
“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap” -Luke 6:38
