The Good Sower

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine you’re a farmer who hired two people to sow your fields. You give them each a bag of seed of equal size. At the end of fifteen minutes, one has sown all his seed, but the other has just barely started. What are you going to do? You’re going to give the one who has sown abundantly more seed. You’re going to resupply them quickly, give them extra, and get ready to provide them with still more. You’re going to give to the person who has sown the seed. It only makes sense.

In the same way, God calls us to do His will, to sow His Word, His will, and His blessings into this world. But if you’re not sowing, how can He give you more? Thus if you are sowing, He will give you more and more and more. So be a wise sower, and start giving this world His word, His gospel, your time, your service, your ministry, your money, your treasures, yourself. For as you give, so you shall receive – from the God who never fails to give “seed to the sower.

Today’s Mission – Today, start sowing abundantly. Sow the Word, sow blessings, sow to His purposes, His ministry, sow to the world. And God will sow to you.

God Knows The Way

Bread corn is bruised —Isaiah 28:28

The farmer does not gather timothy and bluegrass and break it with a heavy machine. But he takes severe measures to separate the kernels of wheat. So God takes great pains with those who are to be of much use to Him. There is a nature in them that needs this discipline. Do not wonder at God’s wise, discriminating care that will fit them to be food for the multitude.

God knows the way He is taking, and there is infinite tenderness in the oversight He gives. He is watching the furnace you are in; He will not allow the heat to become too intense. He wants it great enough to purify and then it will be withdrawn. He knows our frame. He will not let any temptation take us but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it (1 Corinthians 10:13).

Do you believe in this disciplining love of the Heavenly Husbandman? Are you trusting Him with the leading and government of your life? Do not permit yourself to envy or be disturbed by the people around you! Some day you will be glad for the training and blessing they have brought you.
