Monthly Partner Letter – 2020
March was a wild and crazy month for many. Whew! I have never seen people behave that way. Yet, God continued to speak the same things to me over and again… “Keep your eyes and mind on Me and keep sowing.”
When times get tough, it is not the time to quit but to press into God even more. You see, the enemy knows what is coming to you and he plans to stop it. But he can’t if you keep your eyes on God and trust His word.
In Genesis 26:2-3, it says; “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land where I tell you to live. Stay in this land for a while, and I will be with you and will bless you.”
Going to Egypt means you are trying to do things the world’s way instead of God’s way. The world is shouting one thing at us right now, but God is saying, “Hold steady, I am still God, I am not moved, keep your eyes on me. Trust me.”
Stay in faith and God will bless you right where you are.
“It’s better to be in a place of famine with God, than in Egypt without God!” This is what Jerry Savelle said in a recent partner letter and I agree.
Isaac obeyed God and look what happened!
“Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy. He had so many flocks and herds and servants that the Philistines envied him.”
That is supernatural increase! We are, this day, in a place of opportunity! A place where supernatural increase is a very real possibility.
We can sow in this place, and God will bless us. While others are scrambling to hoard things away, we remain in faith and continue to tithe, sow and give as God nudges us to.
I have learned, when I have a need, God always gives me seed to sow. I sow it and He takes care of the rest.
As we make sowing our lifestyle, God will always meet our need.
I have learned I can sow my way out of any famine… God is so faithful! What I sow, I reap and so do you.
Galatians 6:7 says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
We determine what we sow and we determine what we reap…by what we sow.
The Bible says, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously” (2 Corinthians 9:6 NIV).
My wonderful friends, God has not changed. He is not moved by this world, neither should we be. Let nothing but the word of God move us.
Remember at the first of the year, I continually sent out writings that said PREPARE, PREPARE! I couldn’t have imagined what was coming – but God knew. And He spoke to us to prepare – long before it happened. Even then I began to sow extra seeds to prepare for what was to come. I began to pray more. Seek God more. Get ready for what was coming and now…here we are. I am not moved by what is going on around me. I am only moved by His word and I will continue to obey His word, even when it looks like famine, how about you?
This month as you sow your most generous partner seed remember, God is faithful. As we sow in famine, it is my prayer, like Isaac, we reap a hundred-fold IN THIS SEASON. I expect it for me and for you!
Be blessed and stay in Him.
