“And He said, “The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head.” (Mark 4:26-28)
Jesus, in this passage of scripture, gives us the way everything in life and the kingdom works. You don’t wake up one day after you planted a seed and expect to see a full grown plant. No, you plant the seed and you see a little growth each day.
In the kingdom of God it works the same way. You plant seeds of giving and as you work the seed you see a harvest. You plant seeds of friendship and after a while you see the harvest. You take God’s Word and plant seeds of joy, or peace, or love, and after a while you see it come back to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over. Each seed comes in its different growth pattern. I believe this is where many believers miss it. We have this instant mentality. We think, I planted that yesterday so I should have a harvest today.
No, just like a regular seed, you’ve got to let it grow. Go ahead plant things and then keep watering them. Make sure they get good sunshine and give them the proper period of time that the seed needs and it will grow and bring forth a great harvest.
I have seen this over and over. People have someone lay hands on them and when they don’t see instant results they get discouraged and let the seed die. No! Hold onto that seed and let it sprout and grow. It’s got to become a blade first, then the head, and then after that the full grown results of your seed.
“Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith.”
Heavenly Father, please help us take hold of the seed and plant it in our hearts today. May we not let it go until we see a full harvest. Forgive us for the times before that we gave up, that we judged and for times we did nothing at all.. Lord God, thank you for all that you do in our lives, most of all for your sacrifice. In Jesus’ name, Amen
