”…Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening… for you do not know which will succeed…whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.” [Ecclesiastes 11:6]

As much as I enjoy the sunshine my gratitude increases when the rains come.  As a gardener and English by birth, rain is not only familiar but a friend.  It’s a fact of my faith that having sown and planted a garden God will provide the rain.  It brings increase that can be shared as the plants multiply, blooms bring joy and more seeds are produced for sowing.

Fact is whatever you sow will return to you in abundance.  ”Happy and fortunate are you who cast your seed upon all waters when the river overflows its banks; for the seed will sink into the mud and when the waters subside, the plant will spring up; you will find it after many days and reap an abundant harvest…”  [ Isaiah 32:20 AMP]

Fact is God’s natural laws of sowing and reaping apply to every area of life and produces  like-kind.  ”…whatever a man sows, that he will also reap for he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.”   [Galatians 6:7-8]

Fact is faith in Christ bears fruit for every good work.   ”…pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God…”   [Colossians 1:10b NKJ]

Fact is—faith comes by hearing the Word of God. ”Take heed what you hear. With the same measure you use, it will be measured to you; and to you who hear, more will be given. “[Mark 4:24 NKJ]

Fact is—you must use your faith or you will lose it.  ”For to him who has will more be given; and from him who has nothing, even what he has will be taken away by force.”  [Mark 4:25 AMP]
