Keep growing by reading the Bible daily! Read it no matter what and if you want to or not. Keep getting up! Keep showing up! Don’t back down. Love again today, yourself and others. Believe more than you did yesterday. Give again, Be again… One moment soon, will be your moment!
The apostle Paul stated in Philippians 3:13 … One thing I do, it is my one aspiration, I forget what lies behind and strain forward to what lies ahead. Yes, there will be opposition from the enemy, but press on.
James 1:12-13 says, Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and been approved, he will receive the victor’s crown of life, which God has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted to do what is evil. He Himself tempts no one. Verse 17 goes on to say, Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above. It comes down from the Father of all that gives light, in the shining of Jesus, Whom in, there can be no variation (rising or setting) or shadow cast by His turning, as in an eclipse.

Sowing and Reaping is Real! The Apostle Paul wrote for us the following about reaping and sowing in Galatians 6:7-9, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit, will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary.”
As we can see, there are reaping’s to the flesh as well as reaping’s to the Spirit. God is reminding us as an encouragement to sow and reap to the spirit and to do good or righteously continually.
Sowing to the flesh is following the old sinful nature, in disobedience to God’s commandments. Sowing to the Spirit is following the leading and unction of the Holy Spirit, walking by faith and in obedience to the Lord.
It is important for us as Christians to realize that, “Every single action we take is a seed that we sow. In time, each of those seeds grow up and reap a certain consequence in our life, either good or bad.” As Christians, we must realize the importance of doing everything we do to reap a harvest of righteousness. We want to reap and bear fruit for the Lord.
The great English preacher, Spurgeon, said a century or more ago, “What, man does is of itself, full of a power. It will be to him what the harvest is to the soil and whatever he sows, he will be sure to reap one day, or in time or eternity. If a man were to sow his field with garlic and expect to reap barley, he would be bitterly disappointed.
When we sow tares, we might pray for a crop of wheat, but we will not get it. God never changes his laws to make tares come up as wheat, and he never will. The sowing always is and always will be, the father of reaping.”
