If you plant in the field of your natural desires, from it you will gather the harvest of death; if you plant in the field of the Spirit, from the Spirit you will gather the harvest of eternal life..
Galatians 6:8 Good News translation
Have you noticed that you make time and resources for the things that are important to you? If you really like sports, you’ll make sure that you’re free to watch the games. If you like to watch movies, you make sure you get to the theater to watch the latest release. The same principle applies for the things of God and His kingdom.
If you’ve let yourself become used to sowing to please yourself, it is time to make the change. Determine to switch and start sowing to spiritual things! When our hearts and lives overflow with His presence and power, we become more effective and instrumental to Him in our generation. Sowing to the Spirit means recognizing where the Spirit aims to produce some fruit for the glory of God and dropping the seed of your resources in there. Whether these resources be time, talent or treasure.
So today, let’s make a deliberate decision to starve to death the desires of the flesh that leads to death and start planting in the field of the spirit so that we can gather the harvest of eternal life. Let’s not be deceived, we can’t sow into carnality and reap eternal benefits. When we consistently practice sowing into the Spirit, there’s a resultant flow of the spirit through our lives. Sowing in the spirit brings forth eternal benefits indeed.
My declaration and Confession: Today, I will walk by the Spirit of God and not gratify the desires of the flesh. I declare that I am sowing my time, talents and treasures into the field of the spirit and I am not looking back!
Ignite Thought: The Spirit is the field that guarantees us a harvest of eternal fulfillment.
