A good friend of mine said to me the other day, “You sowed here in Missouri and you are now reaping there in Tennessee.” His words were brought back to me this morning, while in prayer. The Lord reminded me of what he said, then the Lord added, “I never said WHERE you sow, you shall reap, I said, WHAT you sow you shall reap.” The Lord said it To me again, “I never said WHERE you sow you shall reap, I said, WHAT you sow you shall reap.” I never realized how many times I believed I was supposed to reap where I sowed until the Lord corrected this in me moments ago.
Maybe you have sowed much time, money, worship, prayer, energy, whatever in one place but that field is not producing, it is not because the field is not fertile, nor is it because the seed is bad, it is because God never said, “WHERE” you sow you shall reap, He said, “WHAT” you sow you shall reap. I know I have missed many a chance to give thanks for a harvest because I did not reap it in the place I sowed. In like fashion, I have complained about many a field, because it did not produce a harvest from the seeds I sowed there. I stand corrected today.
I am so thankful for my friend Michael Collins, who reminded me of all I sowed while I was in Missouri and now how much I am reaping already since being here In Tennessee. I will never make the mistake again of expecting to reap where I sow, nor will I ever cease to expect to reap what I sow. I pray this small tweak God did in me this morning is a tweak that will bless you as well, for it seems so small, but it has major implications, for it is harvest time, but not necessarily in the place you have been sowing. Eyes wide open, for the harvest is ripe!
Galatians 6:7 “Do not be decieved, God cannot be mocked, whatsoever a man sows he shall reap in return.”
