I have always found the process of giving and receiving to be very relevant in my own life. If God is trying to get something to me, He always has me to sow a seed before I see my harvest. I don’t know why and frankly I have not questioned it, I have just come to know it is a truth in my own life.
God is not mocked – whatsoever a man sows that and that only shall he reap. Years ago, actually over 20 years ago, I had a desire to work from home and have a job that worked entirely with the word of God – I simply wanted to be surrounded with the word of God daily. The Lord led me to sow a seed for that desire. In a short time, I was working from home, doing newsletters and additional things for ministries. That work eventually led to what I am doing today. God honored my seed and my seed is still producing a continual harvest to this day.
