Daily Prayer Scriptures - Sowing and Reaping, Seed time and Harvest|
(read out loud to sow God's Word into your heart. See Mark ch.4)
The sower sows the Word....and these are they by the way side, where the word is sown; but when they have heard, satan comes immediately, and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts....and these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness....and have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution arises because of the word that was sown, immediately they are offended....and these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word....and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful....and these are they which are sown on good ground; such as hear the word, and receive it, and bring forth fruit, some thirty fold, some sixty, and some an hundred.
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap....for he that sows to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that sows to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting (absolute life, the anointing, power of the Holy Spirit)....let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (if we stay constant, and don't quit).
The Kingdom of Heaven is like when a man which sowed good seed in his field....and his enemy comes later to sow bad seed in with the good.
2 Corinthians 9:9-12
It is written, He hath dispersed abroad; He hath given to the poor: His righteousness remains for ever....now He that ministers seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness....being enriched in every thing to all bountifulness, which causes through us thanksgiving to God....for the administration of this service not only supplies the want of the Saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God.
