Keep Your Blessings Coming
Blessings flow like a river. This flowing river must not stop. If the flow ceases, small pools of water will spill over into low places along the river’s edge. When this loss of current happens, stagnant pools are created which provide a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, algae, moss, contaminated water, etc.
Have you ever thought of the flow of blessings in respect to seedtime and harvest? The principles of each of these are the same. When a farmer plants seed, he must wait patiently for his harvest.
However, he is the only one that is waiting. Under the topsoil that little seed is coming to life. It slowly begins to push against its shell until it bursts open. Just because we do not see it does not mean that nothing is happening.
It keeps pushing onward and upward until one day it pops through the soil and into the sunlight. What a glorious moment for that precious little seedling. Then with water, light, and the warmth of
the sun, it continues growing and growing until fruit begins to form
on its vines.
When the fruit reaches its full maturity, it slowly awaits its destiny– to feed God’s creation. After the fruit is gone the seed remains so that the process may begin all over again. Thus, we have the Biblical principle of seedtime and harvest.
If the river remains unhindered it will keep flowing. If we continually plant seeds, we will continue to reap a harvest. The secret is simple. There is a flowing in and a flowing out. There is planting and there is reaping. If either one of these components are omitted the blessings stop.
Giving will always produce receiving. “Give and it shall be given unto you, pressed down, well shaken and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure you have given it shall be given unto you.” Luke 6:38
If we desire to be blessed, then we must be a blessing. If we desire to reap, then we must sow. If we want abundant blessings, then we must bless abundantly. If we want to reap an abundant harvest, then we must sow abundantly. We choose the level of blessing we receive. It is up to us.
I want the abundant life; spiritually, physically and financially! So I must keep my river flowing and I must sow my seeds abundantly. Try it! God’s Word never fails. It is established in the heavens. If the Word of God is established in your heart, then it will work for
you; you never have to work for it.
Do you want God’s blessings to keep coming in? Then you must keep your blessings and river flowing out.
Love & Blessings ~~
