Look For The Opportunities
This is a key the Lord shared with me about positioning ourselves for walking in the fullness of the blessing: Look for every opportunity that you can to sow towards it.
You can’t have a harvest without sowing. Harvest just don’t happen. They are the results of sowing. And if you want manifestations of the fullness of the blessing in your life, then you sow toward that.
The entire earth revolves around this principle. Genesis 8:22 says, “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, shall not cease.” (Amplified)
The whole earth revolves around the principle of sowing and reaping. The world calls it cause and effect. For every action, there is a reaction.
Let’s look at Genesis 12, God told Abraham that He would bless him. God said, “I will bless you. I will make you a blessing. I will make your name great. I will make a nation out of you and that through you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
This is what God promised Abraham when He first introduced Himself to him. But did Abraham wait until all of the promises of God for his life were manifested before he started sowing? No. He did not.
God is talking about these promises in Genesis 12, 13, and 14. By chapter 15, for the first time mentioned in the Bible, the Bible says that Abraham gave Melchizedek tithes of all. Once again, the promises that God gave Abraham haven’t been fulfilled yet.
What was Abraham doing? He was not only giving God tithes of all, but he is also sowing towards the fulfillment of the promises that God had given him.
Over the years, I have learned to follow that example. And if you want to live in the fullness of the blessing, then let me encourage you to begin to look for every opportunity that you can to sow towards the fulfillment of it. If you do, you won’t be disappointed. I can tell you without any reservations that God has never let me down and He’ll do the same for you!
