It can be far too simple to forget the longevity of our lives. The seeds of consistency sown when we show up, day after day, might seem small, but the bible tells us they matter. It’s these seeds that build our destiny and futures.
“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 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. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” (Galatians 6:7-9)
Seeds of consistency build and grow
Knowing this, I have to ask: what seeds of consistency are you planting? They matter to Jesus. Maybe they are midnight prayers, focusing on God to get through insomnia or anxiety. Or maybe your seeds are the few dollars each week you spare to save for the house you’re dreaming to buy. Possibly your seeds are those of faith: believing for someone you love’s salvation, or for a miraculous healing. Your sowing, day after day, makes an impact. With each prayer, you are partnering with heaven. You are remembering the life ahead of you, setting your heart to the future in front of you.
Sowing from the Spirit, not the flesh
It’s not about the size of your seed, but more-so the heart behind it. Like Jesus tells the disciples in Matthew, they lacked the faith to see the miraculous happen. They couldn’t drive our the unclean spirit because of their little faith. It takes the Holy Spirit to lead us into faith that isn’t of our flesh. We know we cannot see the miraculous in our own doing. It’s because of Him.
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20)
