Scripture: Mark 4:11
Mark 4:11 says, “And He said to them, ‘To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables.’” The mystery of the Kingdom of God is called the mystery of seedtime and harvest. We sow the seed of God’s Word and His promises in our heart and we do that by memorizing it, pondering it and speaking it. It is always fruitful to speak God’s redemptive words morning and evening. That is the process of meditating which is speaking it to ourselves. We sow spiritual seed in the spiritual soil of our heart. As time passes growth gradually occurs and that growth promises first the blade, then the ear, and then the full corn in the ear. There are three stages of the growth and development in fulfillment of the Word that we sow on the inside of us. First, the seed germinates. Next, it grows until we see a blade. Then that blade develops into a head of many seeds, the full corn in the ear. God’s Word carries the seed of a promise and was made to be sown in our hearts and lives. So God’s Word is unique in that it is Scripture and made for spirit beings. It is alive! It is living and it is active and as seed it will produce an awesome harvest. God told Joshua to meditate on God’s Words day and night and he would make his way prosperous and he would have good success. There is seed we ought to be sowing concerning our future provision and all of the divine resources to fulfill our destiny. There is seed concerning protection. There is seed concerning clothing and shelter and all the things that we need in this life. Finding the appropriate scriptural seed and sowing it for the harvest that we need is the foundation of seedtime and harvest within God’s Kingdom. We want to be the territory over which the King rules so that every place our foot treads there is an anointing to rule that goes with us.
