The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity
Recognize the Difference
Between Multiplied Seed and Harvest
One of the dynamic laws of prosperity is to recognize the difference between multiplied seed and harvest.
2 Corinthians 9:10 says...
10 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness"
Notice that God will "multiply the seed" you have sown. He also supplies bread for food. But here's the question, once you sow your seed and receive a harvest,
how do know if it's multiplied seed or bread for food? Recognizing the difference is one of the dynamic laws of prosperity.
When you plant a seed, two things will come forth: a harvest and more seeds. If you plant corn seed, you will get a harvest of corn,
but you will also get a harvest of corn seed. It's vital to know the difference between a harvest that is additional seed and a harvest
that is the thing you've been expecting and believing God for.
If a farmer wants to go into the corn business, he may start by planting two corn seeds. Once he receives his harvest of corn,
what should he do with it? It's obvious that he should use it to plant more seed. Because if he eats it, his dreams of starting a corn business are over!
However, that's what many Christians are doing regarding our own goals. We ignore the dynamic laws of prosperity.
We sow and believe God for a harvest, but when we receive a harvest, we fail to recognize that it's only more seed.
We've not yet received what we have been expecting and believing for. So we need to keep sowing our multiplied seed
until we receive what we have been believing God to receive.
I remember years ago, while attending a Christian financial education seminar, the instructor made the statement that
"sometimes good is the enemy of great". He talked about how many on the road to the wealthy place stop once they achieve a minimum level of success.
They never press on to the fullness of what God promised them. They exit the highway short of their original destination.
He gave an illustration of how achieving a six - figure income for some, can get in the way of their becoming a multi-millionaire.
Unfortunately, some may get so excited about having achieved the goal of a $100,000 a year salary that they settle down and use it to buy a nice car,
a fine home, and take wonderful vacations. In other words, they eat their multiplied seed. They completely forget about their original goal of starting
the business they were called to manage for the Kingdom.
Instead of viewing your increase as more seed to do whatever God has called you to do, you can easily get distracted and settle for good instead of
pressing on to the fullness of what God has planned for you if you are not diligent.
Remember the dynamic laws of prosperity. You have to keep planting until you receive what you're believing God for.
Capitalize on the seed you've sown. Take that multiplied seed and replant it. Continue to plant your seed until you reach the
destination that the Word of God has promised you. Don't eat your seed. Keep sowing and the dynamic laws of prosperity will produce your harvest.
