Sowing And Reaping
"And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work." II Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
We love to quote this verse and claim it, but the truth is that we cannot separate it from verse 6 which says "But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully."
You can't be sowing sparingly and be believing for "sufficiency in all things" and "abundance for every good work". No, it won't work. To have abundance you must first be someone who consistently sows bountifully.
The economy is not a problem at all! It doesn't matter how terrible the economy is, it should never bother you. You have to stop living by sight and start living by faith. God's ability to provide is not dependent on the economy of your state or country; all He has to do is to speak it into existence! Where there is dryness, just one word from God will make it a fruitful place! Hallelujah! As you begin to sow bountifully, prosperity shall be yours in Jesus name. Amen.
