Seeing New Things!
I have always been fully persuaded that God’s word is truth – there has never been a doubt in my mind. Yet, there are some scriptures from the word of God that I have not yet seen manifested.
One of those scriptures are found in the book of Amos, chapter 9, verse 13. It says; ‘Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him who sows seed.’
I want to share that story with you today.
A friend of mine texted me one morning and asked for prayer. She said she had news that the facility her mom was staying in was going to raise the fees a considerable amount. She went on to share a few other things she wanted prayer for. I responded to her that I would be praying that day and we would believe God to move on her behalf.
The thought came to me to tell her to ‘sow a seed’ concerning the thing with her mom’s facility but I didn’t share that thought with her. I instead thought ‘that’s between her and God.’
Just a few days later, I saw a check come through the ministry from this same friend. On the note of the check it said ‘seed for Mom’s facility.’
As I was looking at that check and smiling because she had done just what I would have done, I received another text from this same friend.
She informed me that the facility was NOT going to increase their rates after all. She also shared with me that she had good news concerning the other prayer requests. Then she said ‘I sowed a seed for this, it is on the way.’
God had answered her prayer BEFORE her seed was even deposited.
Now, let’s look at that scripture once again in the Amplified Bible.
In Amos 9:13 the Amplified says; “Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “When the plowman shall overtake the one who gathers the harvest, and the one who treads the grapes shall overtake him who sows the seed for the harvest continues until planting time; When the mountains will drip sweet wine and all the hills shall melt that is, everything that was once barren will overflow with streams of blessing.’
I was excited today as I read over these scriptures again. You see, if God manifested the first part of this scripture for my friend, He will also manifest the rest of the word.
She sowed her seed, the harvest overtook her seed…her harvest came BEFORE her seed was deposited. But God’s promise doesn’t end there. He goes on to says that the mountains will drip with sweet sine and EVERYTHING BARREN will overflow with streams of blessing.
I am expecting nothing but streams of blessing for my friend…all because of her faithfulness to God and her faithfulness to sow when it seemed in the natural that was the last thing she needed to do. She sowed in what appeared to be a financial attack and God brought the harvest for her.
God is no respector of persons, what He did for her, He longs to do for you.
I have seen, with my own eyes, that we are indeed in a season where the sower overtakes the reaper and I am excited. I know if I am seeing this, I am about to see everything that has been barren overflow with STREAMS (continual) BLESSINGS! OH! What a mighty God we serve!
Friends, I don’t know where you are today financially, but I hope this writing encouraged you, I know it encouraged me. We are in an awesome time with God, as we sow, we are being overtaken with harvest, the streams of blessings are coming our way….expect them as you sow.
May you be continually blessed with STREAMS of BLESSINGS from this day forth.
