I believed God for a seed to sow during that epoch-making event. I had nothing on me. Not too long, someone sent a huge sum to me. I now had a choice to make; “Would I sow the seed or spend the money on the various needs in my life?” I did the former.

Friend, in this kingdom, you are either a seed sower or a bread eater. Seed sowers always look for seeds to sow. Thus, they would not lack bread (harvests). Bread eaters are always looking for what to eat. Hence, they would always need bread. While bread eaters enjoy the moment, seed sowers secure the future.

God will always relate with you the way you want Him to relate with you (2 Samuel 22:27, Isaiah 55:10). If you posture as a bread eater, God would be faithful to give you bread. And if you posture as a seed sower, you would not lack seed to sow. The choice is yours. Since the Kingdom of God thrives on the seed principle, the way to make progress is to understand and practise this principle (Genesis 8:22, Mark 4:13).

For every harvest that enters into your hands, there is the seed part, and there is the bread part. Learn to eat the bread and sow the seed. If you eat your seed with your bread, you will shortchange yourself in the long run. God does not want us to eat from our labours, He wants us to eat from our harvests (Leviticus 25:19). This is why seed sowing is critical to your destiny of wealth and greatness (2 Corinthians 9:8-11).

While sowing and reaping is not the only principle for success, especially in financial matters, it provides an environment for every other principle to work in your life (Genesis 8:22, Galatians 6:7). It is the antidote to vain labour (Psalms 127:1-2). It is the cure for the curse (Genesis 8:20-22). It is the trigger for supernatural manifestations (1 Kings 17:8-16). It is a game changer anytime, any day (2 Kings 3:26-27).

Nobody is born with the gift of sowing or giving. Everyone has to learn it with time and practice (2 Corinthians 8:1-7). It begins with the little you currently have. Don’t wait until you have millions, start from your little hundreds and thousands. Put seed sowing in your financial plans. Don’t spend all your salary or income. After giving your tithes, sow into your man of God and the Church of God. Then save, invest, and spend on other financial obligations. You will not lack!
