THEME: THERE CANNOT BE A BETTER TIME TO SOW
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22)
The yuletide period is usually a celebration of the birth of our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. During this period, people give out lots of gifts as a mark of love. Some visit orphanages, give clothing materials and money to widows and the needy in general. So, unarguably, there can be no better time to sow in the house of God than now. Of course, you can be sure of bountiful reward especially when you sow in a church like The Lord’s Chosen where the power of God is evident. So, you must choose to sow a worthy seed offering to appreciate God for keeping you alive all through the year; for providing for you; fighting all your battles and giving you victory over your enemies and making a way for you where there is no way.
Seed time and harvest are natural phenomena. They are seasonal and happen at specific times. Without seed time, there will be no harvest. One can only harvest what he sows during the seed time. The frequency of sowing will also determine the frequency of reaping or harvesting. As a Christian believer, you are expected to ‘sow’ at all times and not just to be involved peripherally. That way, bountiful harvest is assured. There are those who have concluded that they are poor and exempt themselves from sowing. They feel that their salary or profit is too small and therefore, not enough. Are you like that? At this point, it becomes imperative to re-evaluate what you have been able to sow so far. This evaluation is most likely to help you determine what to expect during harvest. You need to sow and watch over your seed through prayer so that the enemy will not sow tares into what you have already sown.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. I ask for enabling grace to sow bountifully into God’s harvest, in Jesus’ name.
2. Any good seed I have sown in the time past, I command it to manifest unhindered, in Jesus’ name.
3. I command the spirit of stinginess in my life to die. Let the spirit of bountiful sowing manifest, in Jesus’ name.
4. Every seed sown by our G. O, our mummy in the Lord and their children; whether financially or in terms of evangelism, begin to bear fruits without delay, in Jesus' name.
