Zechariah 8:12 AMPC, For there shall the seed produce peace and prosperity; the vine shall yield her fruit and the ground shall give its increase and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to inherit and possess all these things.
I was listening to a vocalist as she began to prophetically declare, “I see the seed in you. There’s always been good in you. I see my likeness in you. Everything that falls off you becomes fertilizer to grow you deep. You carry a testimony of where we’ve been. I see the seed.” This is only parts I’ve grabbed as she sang it out, there’s much more to it, but you get the gist of it. (Bethel Music)
When I ran across this verse, I realized what value God places on seed. Our seed will produce peace and prosperity. Every seed we’ve planted; be it words or encouragement, the Word of God, our time, our tithes and offerings, God sees the seed. He watches over it so that it bears much fruit.
Some of you have been faithful sowers of the seeds God gave you and you’re wondering, ‘When will I eat the fruit of it?’ Remember, it’s God who gives the increase. Keep planting! Keep tilling the ground. Be faithful! Your harvest is coming. Whatever you need, He’s already provided. You may be in a drought, but God promised rain. You may be buried in debt, but God’s promised deliverance. He’s a faithful God and He’s keeping track of your seed.
Last night, God reminded me of all the seeds we’ve sown over just the last couple years and it blew my mind. I never thought, ‘Wow, I sure could use that now!’ No, I know that what I planted will increase 100 fold. I can trust the Father with that seed. Just because I haven’t seen it manifest yet, doesn’t mean it won’t. Seed reproduces after it’s kind. You can’t plant corn and get tomatoes. One kernel of corn will bring 2-3 ears on a stalk and go ahead, count the kernels on each ear.
I have a promise of harvest! When it’s ripe, I’ll reap big time.
