Every time I see a seed of any kind, I am amazed all over for the first time again. I always say this: how can all of the things a seed produces be in that one little hull. To me it is a witness that only a supreme being could create something like that.
Mark 4:26,28 The Kingdom of God is like a man who sows seed into the ground. The earth makes the seed to grow, first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
Everything the man expects to receive is in that one seed. The earth was created by God to grow any seed that is planted in its soil. The law is so effective that I have seen trees grow out of cliffs of rocks. If we get focused on the law of the seed we could miss out on what our Lord wants us to learn. Remember the account of Jairus, he was bringing Jesus to his house to pray for his daughter. Before Jesus could get to her, she died and everyone in the house began to tumult. Jesus told them she was not dead but she was just sleeping and He put all of them out of the house.
Luke 8:53-54 Maid arise. And her spirit came again and she arose.
Some things happened here that we must pay attention to. The girl had died because her spirit had left her. This means her heart stopped beating, blood stopped flowing and all her organs shut down. Jesus spoke two words: “maid arise”. He sowed two words, inside of those two words was the miracle of the seed. Her spirit returned to her, her heart began to beat, blood began to flow and all her organs began to function without any brain damage.
John 6:36 It is the Spirit that makes alive; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.
The words Jesus gave us are our seeds. We plant them whenever we pray in faith. Every seed has a specific function that when it is sown (spoken) it produces a specific harvest. When a Bible believing Christian takes the Word of God praying they are sowing the seed of the supernatural. The more you pray the more seed you have planted and the greater your harvest.
Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap.
It is a miraculous thing to sow good seed with the words of our mouth. But we can use the mouth and sow other seed that we call tares (weeds). God will not be mocked, He will not look away and disregard the foolish things we say. God will not be made a fool of because He has set the law in motion and it cannot be altered. If God is not going to cut us any slack, perhaps we would be wise to judge ourselves and be watchful of what comes out of our mouths. Get something settled in your mind right now, God makes the rules, not us. We either obey Him or we don’t. We get the blessing or the curse. The miracle is in the seed and God gives seed to every sower, so sow and expect for the best.
