FIRST THINGS FIRST "REAPING THE HARVEST"

The promise about two months ago is that I was going to put Gods word as my Sunday blogs or nothing.  There has been an overwhelming response to it and I thank you for that.  It shows that people are not only into carnival, bacchanal and current events.  LOVIN' IT ACTUALLY!!!!! I have really been sick and let me apologize (once again) to the faithful people that log onto the DCARNIVALBABY BLOG everyday.  I do look at the stats and numbers you are all producing but sometimes I just can not make it to do an entire writeup.  Shortly you will know why and shorter than that it will all pass.  Hey, its a new year and with that being said, lets head into 'First Things First:  Reaping The Harvest'.

MARK 4:26-29 Then Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is like someone who plants seed in the ground.  Night and day, whether the person is asleep or awake, the seed still grows, but the person does not know how it grows.  By itself the earth produces grain.  First the plant grows, then the head, and then all the grain in the head.  When the grain is ready, the farmer cuts it, because this is the harvest time".


*Everyone wants a good harvest but not everyone wants to put in what it takes to get the good harvest*

  • Gods word is Seed.
MARK 4:3
MARK 4:14
MARK 4:15
(The seed is the word)

  • The bible describes our bodies as Seed.
I CORINTHIANS 15:42

  • The bible describes our finances/resources as Seed.


4 KEYS NECESSARY TO REAPING A GOOD HARVEST:

1.  WHAT you plant determines what will grow!
If you plant orange seeds, you get oranges.
If you plant mango seeds, you get mangos.
If you plant an acorn, although it many not look like an oak tree, that is precisely what you'll get.
GALATIANS 6:7-9 you will ALWAYS reap what you sow.  What the world calls karma the bible calls *reaping what you sow*
This applies to your attitude, actions and resources as well. If you are negative all the time, that may just be what you are always faced with.  The seeds that you plant in your life, is what will grow and YOU will harvest on that! If you don't like whats going on in your life, change the seeds that you are planting.

2.  WHERE you plant determines what will grow.
This would be your time, your resources, etc.
GALATIANS 6:9-10

3.  WHEN you plant determines what will grow.
If you plant particular seeds at the wrong time, your seeds will not grow.  If you are not seeking God FIRST! your seeds WILL NOT GROW!  Give God what belongs to God 1st and don't give him your last.  Once you give God first, he will put you 1st.  How can you try to cheat God?   Once you take care of His house he will take care of yours.  FYI you don't cheat God but end up cheating yourselves!
PROVERBS 3:9-10
MALACHI 3:6-12

4.  How you give determines how much you will receive.

2 CORINTHIANS 9:6-8
ROMANS 8:31-39
ROMANS 2:13


God LOVES a cheerful giver.  Don't be 'guilted' into doing it, if you are DON'T DO IT.  Your giving, offerings, tithing and time spent is between yourself and God.  A cheerful giver will always have what they need. 
AMEN!
