We all know that God placed a measure of faith in each of us. We also know that Faith is the substance of all things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. How many know that faith comes by hearing? How many know that faith without works is dead? How many know that we must meet God halfway in order to receive all that He has for us. While God will not do it all, He also doesn't expect us to. We can't go to him in prayer for everything and do nothing ourselves. He wants to see your level of commitment, your heart, and your love for him. We use faith in all aspects of our lives.
While we know we are to sow seeds, we can also ask God to bless us with a seed to sow. You can have faith to sow the amount of your heart or the amount God calls you to give. Some don't realize that sowing a seed is not for God. He already owns your house, car and accounts. He has the kingdom that never goes broke, that never withers. God calls us to sow seeds to bring out our inner potential or deliverance. It is only to get you to the next place in your life and in Him. He tests our level of obedience by putting on our heats what He wants us to do or to give. Sometimes we are confused of whom the speaker is. We say, "God won't tell me to sow my last 300 dollars". But how many know that satan will not have you giving to God's Kingdom. We also have reservations because we have never been called to do such a task. Many don't realize you are being called to do something you've never done before so that God can take you where you've never been before. Our minds can't conceive what our hearts are trying to achieve. Our natural minds cant fathom it. A lot of us feel that now is not the time. Bills are too high and too much is going on in our lives. Well, that is the best time to do so.
Faith without works will be void. Do your part. Not because you want something in return, but because it's the least you can do considering the blood he shed for you. Don't have a seed to sow? Your faith will make it happen. Give God 10% of your time, of your day, of your hours.
Sow your seed for a renewal of Faith, wisdom, knowledge and understanding, and I promise you, God will give it back 10 fold!
