The Bible says that we are not to look at what we see to determine whether we sow or not. This scripture says when we observe the wind, we will not sow. This takes me to the New Testament where Jesus was walking on water and Peter said ‘Lord, if that is You, bid me come.’ Of course, Jesus said ‘come.’ And Peter walked on water, other than Jesus no man has ever walked on water besides Peter before or since. But the Bible says when Peter looked at the wind and the waves, he became afraid and he began to sink.

This is the same principle. If in our giving, we begin to look at the wind, we begin to look at our circumstances, we begin to look at our bank account, we become afraid and we begin to sink. The only way we can sink in our reaping is if we sink in our sowing or stop giving.
We are a people who walk by faith and not by sight. We don’t walk by what we see, we walk by what we know. And what we know is what the Word of God declares. Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over shall men give into your bosom. With what measure you give out it will be measured back to you. This is what we know. And we know God is faithful and His word will not return void.
