TREM Devotional - Do Not Withhold Your Seed

Wisdom For The Day Devotional 22 January 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Do Not Withhold Your Seed


TOPIC: Do Not Withhold Your Seed (TREM Devotional 22 January 2023)


“In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good.” Ecclesiastes 11:6 (KJV)


MESSAGE:


The natural mind will not sow seeds. The natural man only thinks of how to collect but that is the exact opposite of the supernatural mind, which is patterned after God because God is the Ultimate Giver.


The book of Ecclesiastes 11:1 says: “Cast thy bread upon the waters: for thou shalt find it after many days” (KJV). The Natural mind says when I cast it, I have lost it. Ecclesiastes 11: 4 says: “He that observeth the wind shall not sow and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. (KJV). When you observe the wind, you will not sow, because all you will see are the challenges, and your mind will warn you to be careful. When you do that, you are observing the wind, and you will not sow.


Why should I give? You may ask. After all, you are confronted with hard facts. But beloved, the fact is not the truth. The truth is that God will meet your needs. You may not understand the how, but as you follow, it will manifest. That is why the wise man in Ecclesiastes said, “As thou knowest not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all”. (Ecclesiastes 11:5 KJV)


You don’t know the works of God and don’t try to understand them. Certain things are exclusive to Him alone. Don’t try to understand it.


I don’t know how it works but I have made God my priority. So, the first thing is that in all you do, acknowledge Him. In other words, make Him first. Acknowledge Him first. One of the ways you acknowledge God is through your giving, your tithes, your offering, your seed faith, your building funds, and different kinds of giving. Why? Because it is God that gives you the power to get wealth.
