The law of multiplication II

Be blessed on this wonderful day that the Lord created for us to praise His marvellous Name! I pray for this word today not only to inspire you, but also to motivate you for action that would change the whole course of your life.For several days we have been talking about the power and potential hidden in a small seed. Yesterday we viewed the parable of Jesus about growing of seed. Jesus said that after the scattering of seed there will be harvest. If we sow the seed into good ground then this seed will bring harvest. We also talked about growth and multiplication being a process and not an event. If we want to see increase in our lives, we cannot look for short cuts. This process involves both man’s part and God’s part. Man’s part implies sowing of the seed. Seed is given to us not for having and eating; it is given for sowing. Besides, we need to take care of the sown seed just like a farmer does. And then God will do His part, – He will make the seed grow.
“I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase. Now he who plants and he who waters are one, and each one will receive his own reward according to his own labour”  (1 Corinthians, 3:6-8).
These verses talk of labour. It is very important to understand that God wants us to work. Our job is to plant and water the seed, and then God will give the increase. There is another passage of Scripture that reveals another important principle.
“Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:5-6).
This Scripture confirms that the one who sows and labours – even if it takes tears – will doubtlessly reap with joy. If we use our God given seed correctly, which means if we sow the seed even with tears then God promises us abundant harvest and lots of joy. All these parables of Jesus tell us of the kingdom of God.
«And He said, „The kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground…» (Мark, 4:26).
Dear friends, we are the children of God, and every one of us is filled with the seed of God – the seed of God’s kingdom. God wants His kingdom to multiply and grow. He desires His kingdom to grow through us and spread in the world. What do we do with the God given seed? The seed I am talking about is the talents, gifts, abilities that God has showered upon us. What do we do with all this wealth? Do we sow them? Do we use them? If we do sow them, do we expect harvest? God desires for us to expect harvest and increase. Expectation is a spirit of faith. Where there is an expectation, then we will reap what we have sown. If there is no expectation, then the situation is clear opposite.
«Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain» (James, 5:7).
Having done everything that depends on him, the farmer waits patiently for the fruit to come forth, and through this confident and patient waiting he prepares himself for the harvest. God desires for us to have the same attitude towards the seed of life that God has given us.May God bless you! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
