Sowing Good Seeds

by Joel Osteen

Today's Scripture

"Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life" (Galatians 6:7-8, NIV).

Today's Word

Whether you realize it or not, everything you are experiencing in your life today is a direct result of the seeds youíve sown in your past. Today, you are planting seeds for the harvest in your future. Just as the farmer expects a crop from the seeds he sows, we can expect a harvest from the seeds weíve sown, good or bad. Thatís why we have to be deliberate about the seeds we are sowing. We have to wake up every day and set our minds on Godís Word and choose to speak His truth over our lives. We have to constantly evaluate our actions to make sure we are depositing good seeds so we can reap a good harvest in the future.

Why donít you take some time right now to ask the Holy Spirit to search your heart and mind? See if there are any negative seeds that youíve sown in the past that need to be uprooted. Be deliberate about planting the Word of God in the soil of your heart. Sow good seeds into your future so you can reap the harvest of blessing God has designed for you!

A Prayer for Today

Father God, thank You for the system of sowing and reaping. Thank You for giving me good seed to sow! I ask that You search my heart and mind and show me where to sow my seed so I can reap the abundant harvest You have for me. In Jesusí Name. Amen.
