Day 24 – Sow consistently

Day 24 – Some reuse to sow consistently

When you sow consistently, your harvest will become continuous.  When you sow inconsistently, your harvest will become erratic.  Look at tithing for example.  God commands us to tithe.  It is not an experiment – He even tells us to test Him in it.  We can’t tithe inconsistently and say that it doesn’t work.  That’s akin to calling God a liar.  He says if you tithe, He will open the windows of heaven (Mal 3).  It is a law, or principle of God.

Learn the power of rhythm, routine and consistency.  There are seasons for sowing, waiting and reaping.  It is a continuous cycle – as consistent as the seasons of the year that God has made.  Create a schedule and set aside funds each week to give away (1 Cor 16:1-2).

We know we should sow consistently.  But why don’t we?  Our faith and confidence in God wavers.  We make commitments while we sit under the anointing, but when we are out of that environment we let the enemy sow seeds of doubt.  Your seed is what you sow.  Your faith is why it multiplies.  Sow with faith.  Whether it’s finances, healing or something else – believe God that He will do what He says He can do (Rom 4:9b).

Don’t let other people rob you of your faith.  Don’t let them plant seeds of doubt.  Don’t stop sowing because you want to use the money for something special – that’s just like borrowing from God.  Sometimes we don’t give or tithe because we don’t feel like it.  Really, if we didn’t feel like giving, that would probably be most of the time, but all we do is allow ourselves to go through seasons of loss and devastation.  Don’t just sow when you are being blessed, but sow when you are in crisis.

Sow into many ministries – “Divide your portion to seven, or even to eight, for you do not know what misfortune may occur on the earth” (Ecc 11:2).

Enter into consistent giving and sowing – and watch what God can do.

This is a summary, from chapter 24, 31 Reasons people do not receive their financial harvest, written by Mike Murdock.
