seeds of faith
We can learn so much about sowing good seeds into the garden of life and seeing the goodness multiply as blessings from God. That's the message I hear every year I begin my garden. I never stop feeling like I’m in a state of awe at how much food one little seed can produce. Until I started gardening at age 25, I didn’t realize how much I took for granted by having the convenience to getting my food at the grocery store
Is this something we take for granted or did God give us this miracle that happens before our eyes to give us faith? Seeds of faith are the kind of faith that multiples and can bless us with the things in life we hope for. But It takes confidence to believe that something great can come from something so small. We have the choice to take action and give the seeds enough attention daily with love and care to see it come to life. God is the father of life and when we stand alone we can do nothing.
Sowing Seeds of Faith
I remember one time when I was jogging downhill and all of a sudden I heard A loud crack noise in my neck. The next morning I was in severe pain from my neck all the way down my left arm. The pain was so intense I couldn’t sit or walk. The only thing I could do to try to get some relief was to lay flat on a bed and try to hold my head to a certain position to feel any kind of relief at all. When I got X-rays the doctors told me I had bone spurs crushing my spinal cord and because they were pinching my spinal cord that it was too risky to operate.
For nine months I read healing scriptures and I would walk over to my bedroom window and raise the bible and pray those healing scriptures to God as I stood on his promises. I would make melodies to bible verses and sing them to God over and over again and by God’s grace I eventually was healed and set free. God gave me seeds of faith that helped me get through many other times of suffering and hardships. So I am thankful for God showing me that the impossible is possible.
what does the bible say about sowing seeds
In Matthew 17:20 we read: 20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. When we are going through the unexpected we have a choice to believe that the impossible is possible, but it’s not always easy. Sometimes we feel God doesn’t care about what we are going through, but who are we to guess if God loves us and cares about our trials?
We may face times of doubt and only see the darkness because we grow impatient and perhaps because we stumble and fall. We might question if we’re strong enough to get past the obstacles in front of us, but somehow God makes a way if we just keep letting him water the seeds we have sown.
bible verse seeds planted
2 Corinthians 9:10
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness;
2 Corinthians 9:6
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
The wicked earns deceptive wages, but one who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.
No matter what you are going through, keep sowing seeds of faith and watch what God can do. Pray and keep on inviting Jesus into your heart and let the Holy Spirit water your seeds. God bless you
