“God ministers the ability to sow in us and as we respond to it, our seed is multipled and our fruit of righteousness is increased”
We need an understanding when it comes to sowing of seeds, it is the Lord that ministers the ability to sow in us. Scriptures made it clear that it is God who ministers to the sower
2 Corinthians 9:10 NOW HE THAT MINISTERETH SEED TO THE SOWER both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness;)
So we see that it is the Lord that ministers the ability to sow seeds in people’s lives, in church etc. We need to get something from the above scripture. The word “Ministereth” means: To supply, furnish, present. God is responsible for the provision of what you will sow because He ministers it but when He provides it, we must never hold back; that’s why Paul said my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory,
Philippians 4:19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
“You will never lack what to sow because God supplies it”
So Paul knew that it is the Lord that supplies seed and the word “supply” there also means: to furnish. The wisdom in this is that, as God ministers the ability to sow a seed to you, you just respond because as you do it, He multiples that seed as the scripture said and the truth is, when God multiplies the seed we need to sow seeds again again as the Lord multiplies those seeds. Take for example when this happen in business whereby you put in for a business of #100,000 and it yield an increase of over #250,000, the truth is you will keep your capital and then put in another one. Now, we have this attitude to business but when it comes to sowing seed in church we withdraw and say “I have given before” that’s after the Lord had multipled the seed sown. We need correct attitude towards our money especially in church, which is to understand the God supplies us with money so that we can sow seed. Now it is not important you wait the issue of money is raised in church, you can just identify a particular need in church and then sow it, you can also identify a need in a brother’s or sister’s life, you just respond to that by sowing that seed as God ministers it to your heart. We must learn to prove by all things we are not tied to money, but we are given to give to God’s people and God’s house.
