God's Timetable

Daily, each one of us is sowing seeds into the lives of others, and just because we may not be around any person on a given day doesn’t mean we are not still affecting them.

For example, let’s say you have said some very bad words to another and these words really cut into that person’s heart. You’ve sown some really bad seeds that have brought wounds, especially if that person is a family member or a close friend, and it could be the opposite if you sow good seeds.

Every day you do have an effect on another. We all know there are good and bad seeds that produce those things. Bad seeds destroy and produce ugly crops that are not good for anyone, but the good seeds do just the opposite. 

Galatians 6: 7 says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.”

God has a timetable for every seed sown, and the harvest we reap will have the same nature as the seed sown. In the past I have sown some bad seeds and even today, years later at times, I still feel the effects.

When we have to reap from some bad seeds we’ve sown, God will help us; and when we know we’ve sown bad seeds, we need to pray for as much crop failure in that area as possible. For the good seeds, God can bring a great harvest and one can stand amazed at what a difference God can make.

It pays to let God examine your life daily. Let Him go through your bags of seeds and remove the bad ones so you’ll only have good seeds to be sown. Then, sow only those things you desire to reap.
