THAT SEED IS NOT A FRUIT
Gal. 6:7..."Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap".
Many are yet to get to the fullness of God's plan for their lives because of their inability to release from that which the Lord has given them. Are you tight fisted and think its your knowledge and ability that has brought you to where you are or given you what you have today? Meanwhile, God only want to take a river from you and give you an ocean.
Friends, some things in your hand is a seed but you are seeing it as a fruit. A seed is meant to be sown not eaten. Ignorance and greed has ripped many of their inheritance. If God can't trust you with little, how can He trust you with abundance? Note Deut. 26:2.."That you shall take some of the first of all produce of the ground, which you shall bring from you land that the Lord your God is giving you, and put it in a basket and go to the place where the Lord your God chooses to make His name abide". You can't out give God. He wants you to give for your own sake, not for Himself. He created the heavens and the earth and all there in, therefore, your given is to provoke your blessing.
I believe God is ministering to someone today. Remember the widow of Zaraphath and her son? She thought what was in her hand was a fruit to be eaten and die, not knowing it was a seed to provoke a ceaseless flow of blessing and life for her and her son- Lk4:26. Immediately she released the seed in her hand to Prophet Elijah, she entered into an ocean of blessing. What is in your hand today that you are thinking its a fruit to be eaten? Don't let greed make you eat your blessing. Surrender it and enter into a new life of abundance and ceaseless flow of God's blessing.
Say it to yourself; Father, I am releasing my seed!
