Sowing and Reaping is a law ordained of God and it applies to the natural as well as the spiritual. Consequently, everything we do and say will produce a blessing or a consequence. When God gives a law it applies to everyone evenly, no one gets an advantage. The righteous habitually reap good things but they have no nepotism with their Father because all are called to be sons of God.
Galatians 6:7 A man’s harvest in life depends entirely on what he sows.
A man can and does sow whatever he wants to, his nature is the deciding factor most of the time. However, the unrighteous can reap good things if they agree to moral laws. My mother and father were honorable people and they instilled wholesome values in me, so I occasionally reaped good things. But I had the nature of my father the devil, so I reaped a lot of misery. Most folks have come to expect good luck and bad luck because they don’t know any better. I am so happy I am born-again and have the nature of my Heavenly Father. Now I can sow in righteousness and reap blessings every day.
James 3:12 Can a fountain both yield salt water and fresh?
A Christian who desires the blessings of God cannot say any old thing he feels like speaking. A Christian could speak in line with God’s Word all the day long and pour out fresh water. But if he speaks one thing contrary to the Word he will pollute all of his fresh water. The man may exclaim, “Oh, but I never meant it”. It won’t matter, God and the devil don’t act on what we mean, they are moved by what we say. I coined a phrase long ago: don’t speak until you engage your brain. A Christian doesn’t need to rely on his brain, he just needs to say what God gave him to say. A Christian that desires prosperity of spirit, soul , and body must practice the vocabulary of silence. Words and confessions mean something, they will bring the blessing or the curse. Once you realize how important your words are, you will have no problem saying all the right things.
John 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do.
Have you ever stopped to consider that men speak what they hear their father say! God feeds men His Word/Will, the devil feeds men his lusts, hoping they will speak them and act on them. The devil has no rule book, he is always trying to get God’s children to speak out his lusts. We would be well served to conform to our Heavenly Father but rebuke and cast down the imaginations of the devil. When we become serious about living the good life, speaking the right thing becomes easy.
Psalm 1:2 Blessed is the man that delights in the law of the Lord; and in his law does he meditate day and night.
Out of the abundance of the heart a man speaketh, we speak what we think about the most. What has the devil said to anyone that is worth meditating on? The devil has been judged and will spend eternity in hell, everything he does is also judged. Everything God says are laws that pertain to life, He gives us everything the devil has forfeited. Brethren, pay attention to what you say next, for by your words you are justified and by your words you are condemned.
