Monthly Partner Letter – March
I love this time of year – it is seed time. The time when I plant my seeds to have plants ready by April for the upcoming harvest.
My favorite thing about this time of year is all God teaches me through it. This year has been no different.
When I first began to plant my seeds, God spoke to me and reminded me that He never forgets a seed. I want to encourage you with that today – GOD HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ONE SEED YOU HAVE SOWN.
Last year I was late getting my garden area ready, therefore I was unable to plant my own seeds – I had to rely on seeds others had planted and buy mine in plant form. Not this year, this year I began on the right day and planted my own seeds.
I planted them, watered them, and sat them in the best area for light. Every night before I went to bed, I would talk to my seeds. I would lay my hands on them and bless them. I would say, “Seeds, I planted you in faith, I bless you in Jesus name, YOU will produce an abundant harvest for what you have been sown for. You are empowered to prosper now in Jesus name.”
I have watched these seeds sprout up with some as large as four inches in just a few days…I am amazed. This morning as I walked by them, I stopped and blessed them. When I was finished blessing them, the Lord said to me, “Look! They are responding to the voice of your words.”
Instantly I knew what He was showing me. There is life in every seed. God put that principal in place. There is life in each seed I planted, as I water it and bless it, it responds to the words I declare over it. Just as the winds and waves responded to Jesus when He calmed the storm. (Matthew 8:27)
I realized immediately that the financial seeds I sow also have life in them – God set it in place. If I water them and speak to them, they too will respond to the voice of my words. This was exciting to me!
My friends, two things I want to encourage you with today. First of all, it’s time to plant your seeds. It may be seeds of forgiveness, seeds of words of wisdom, seeds of a helping hand, or financial seeds. And secondly, God never, ever forgets a seed.
Once planted, water them, shine the light of the word of God on them. Declare over your seeds that they are blessed and empowered to prosper.
A year ago, Kelita encouraged me to start a giving journal. I started it but I didn’t finish it – I stopped in May of last year. As God showed me today that I need to speak His word over my financial seeds, I saw the wisdom in the giving journal. If I had it all in front of me, it would be easy to lay hands on it each day and bless my seeds, just as I bless my cucumber, lettuce and watermelon seeds. Therefore, I dug out my seed journal and brought it up to date – then I took some time with God and blessed all my seeds…and I will continue to do this until I see the harvest from every seed I have sown.
Mark 4:28-29 says; Night and day he sleeps and wakes, and the seed sprouts and grows, though he knows not how. All by itself the earth produces a crop— first the stalk, then the head, then grain that ripens within. And as soon as the grain is ripe, he swings the sickle, because the harvest has come.” …
THIS is what I am seeing…I go to sleep, and wake and the seed has sprouted and grown, and every single time it amazes me. And that is the same thing that is happening to your financial seeds you have sown…they are sprouting and growing even if you don’t see it…they are going to burst through the soil and create a stalk, then the head and then the grain will be ripe, for harvest is here. I am excited for me and for you.
We love you! We appreciate you! We bless every seed that comes into this ministry. This month, as you sow your best seed, remember, there is LIFE in your seed! LIFE is in your seed, speak to that seed and prophesy your harvest, for that seed is responding to the voice of your word. Hallelujah! Glory to God!
