Open Heaven Devotional 27th January 2023
The law of harvest states that you will reap much more than whatever you sow. This is why you must be careful of the kind of seeds you sow, because when harvest comes, it is always much more than the seed. In our Bible readings for today, we see Jacob sowing a seed in the first passage and then reaping the harvest in the second. In the first passage, he deceived his father in order to get the blessing and so his children also deceived him that Joseph their brother was dead. Genesis 37:35 says:
“And all his sons and all his daughters rose up to comfort him; but he refused to be comforted; and he said, For I will go down into the grave unto my son mourning Thus his father wept for him.”
Many a time, the harvest of your seeds comes when you are too old to do anything about it. Everything you do now is a seed and the harvest will come back to you when you may not have as much energy as you do now.
I thank God for some of the seeds I sowed as a young man because I am now reaping the harvests. In 1961, as a 19 year-old, I gave some money to a poor, sick old man – a neighbor, so he could get some medicine. The man said to me that someday, I would be travelling abroad as often as people go the market. I laughed at that prophecy because in my village in those days, if anyone was returning from a trip abroad, the entire village would not go to the farm that day. The hunters would come out and shoot their guns in celebration of the person and everyone would be rejoicing.
At that time, there were only 2 people who had gone abroad in my village, and they studied there for a number of years. Now this man was saying that I would be going often. It appeared funny, but I had sown the seed. Today, by God’s grace, that prophecy has been fulfilled. Beloved, pay attention to every opportunity you have to sow a good seed. On the other hand, always check your actions to be sure that you are not sowing bad seeds that you will regret when the harvest comes.
Be very intentional about the seeds you sow today because they will come back in multiple folds tomorrow.
