Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. (Matthew 7:12 NKJV)
Here again is the law of sowing and reaping. In the book of Proverbs, God tells us that if we want friends, we ourselves must be friendly—sow friendliness; reap friendliness. Whatsoever we sow is exactly what we are going to reap.
Do you want people to do good things for you? Then do good things for them. Sometimes our harvest won’t come directly from those people, but we will reap it in another area. I have found that if I sow in one field, I may reap in 10 other fields. God will always bring a harvest from the seed you sow.
There have been times when God has spoken with me, dealt with me, and has had me pray for the sick, when actually I felt like I was the one in need of healing. But as I sowed healing, God would send people to lay hands on me, or He would burden people in the night to pray for me. And I would experience absolutely the healing resurrection power of Jesus Christ. Sowing—what a simple law this is! We need to take advantage of it!
Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us to take advantage of our advantages today. Help us to see that our disadvantage can become advantages if we will apply the law of sowing and reaping.
In Jesus’s name,
