What You Sow Is What You Reap


Anyone can be a world-class beggar if they choose to be. If wishes were horses, all beggars would ride. You can’t eat your cake and have it. If you are not a worker, you will be a beggar. Things only work for workers.  What you don’t work, won’t work. You can only receive out of life what you put into it. You are redeemed as a giver, not a taker.

Your destiny in Christ is an envious destiny. Stop looking pitiful; start looking beautiful. You are not meant to be pitied, but to be envied. For he had possession of flocks, a possession of herds, and a great store of servants, and the Philistines ENVIED him. (Genesis 26:14). Begging and borrowing erode your redemptive dignity. “…you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.” (Deut.28:12)

Those who labour are found by favour. Stop hanging around with Jesus doing nothing. You have hung around greatness long enough. Now, step into it. It’s doing nothing that frustrates people. Jesus hates idleness (See Mat.20:3-6). He says, “Occupy till I come.” (Luke.19:13). That is, do business till I come. Life is a business. If you don’t do business with life, you’ll go bankrupt. God works. And Jesus works. But Jesus replied, My Father is always working, and so am I. (John.5:17). A man who doesn’t work should not eat.  

You don’t have to have a glamorous job title to succeed in life.….WHATEVER you do shall prosper,” (Psalm.1:3). If the Lord’s blessings could be seen in the life of a pepper seller, how much more would you be? You can blog your way to success; you can write your way to success, and you can be an artist and succeed. There is no profession that is inferior to the others. Your spiritual content is what makes all the difference. No spiritual content can ever be grounded in life.  Start doing something.

Nothing sells like excellence in life. If barbering is your calling, do it excellently. If you want to be a fashion designer, you should strive for excellence. Those who approach life with common sense are referred to as “common men,” and their results are also common. To be successful in your field, you must have specialized knowledge. You are supposed to take the lead in your field. “And the LORD will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.” (Deut.28:13)

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going. (Ecc.9:10)

Information is the vehicle that drives vision. To be informed is to transform; to be uninformed is to be deformed. If you’re not building a library, you are building a mortuary unwittingly. It is your know-how that determines the level of your success in your field. There is a gross deficiency of capacity in the body of Christ. Michael Faraday did not have as much education like you, but he became a preacher and inventor via self-development. Build capacity.

You can’t plant oranges and reap apples; you can’t harvest on someone else’s farm; you can’t sleep during planting season and reap during harvest season. As you lay in your bed, you sleep on it. What you sow is what you reap.

Understanding Your World


(1) Your World is a Word Framed World

“Through faith we understand the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” – Hebrews.11:3

Back to creation (Gen 1), when God wanted to create the earth, He spoke. When He saw darkness, He didn’t cry, but He spoke light to existence. He spoke all things into existence. God himself is the word, the word is light and life (John.1). It’s “speaks unto to this mountain”, not to cry or push the mountain (Mark.11:23). The bible also says, You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established to you. – Job.22:28; World English Bible.

Anything you speak has the power to create. That is why the bible says, For I will give you a mouth (mouth-gift) and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. – Luke.21:15. Tongue fired faith is the gateway to victory. Your tongue is not only meant for eating and talking, but for bold declaration. David used his mouth gift and defeated Goliath. Use your mouth gift.

Don’t say before the angels that it’s an error because angels are at your service bringing whatever you say – positive or negative – to reality. Everybody has an angel. What you don’t want, you don’t say. “Life and death are in the power of the tongues.” – Prov.18:21.

(2) The Market Place (Mathew.20:3-16)

The world is a temporal market place. Only those engage in a business-like approach in life get profits. If you don’t do business with life, you’ll run bankrupt. Nobody lives here forever, the scripture says, Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might; for there is no work or device or knowledge or wisdom in the grave where you are going. – Ecc.9:10.

He went out about the third hour and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and said unto them, You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you. So they went. Again He went out about the sixth and ninth hour and did likewise. And about the eleventh hour He went out and found others standing idle, and said to them, ‘why have you been standing here idle all day.’ – Mathew.20:3-6

We are all in the market called life. Considering the above scripture, Jesus hates idleness. What you don’t work, won’t work. Things only work for workers. You don’t need a powerful Job to make it in life, just be a strong spirit man or woman, whatever you do, shall prosper (Ecc.9:10). Even if you were selling pepper on the street, Supernatural prosperity would locate you.

(3) Your World Lies in a Pole of Wickedness (1. John. 5:19).

In 1 John.5:19; KJV,

And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.

The world lies in a negative pole of wickedness – a magnetic field of wickedness. There are evil beasts in the wilderness called life. From this negative pole of evil sickness, disease, failure (poverty), and all kinds of demonic bastardizations emanate.

The covenant of obedience to scriptural commandments is the only way to survive (Ez.34:25). The devil is no respecter of colour, race, age; eloquent grammar, title and position notwithstanding. Anyone can become a victim, expect the covenant practitioners. Therefore, covenant practice is your bailout.

Evil Machinations Can Manipulate Your World for a Negative Result.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. – Ephesians.6:12

Good news. Serving God puts you far above all powers and principalities and makes you operate on a wavelength with God (in a class of gods). You’re far above and He that comes from above is above all (John.3:31). God comes from above, the devil comes from beneath. You are gods (Psalm.82:6). You’re above all powers.

(4) Your World is a Battlefield.

Life is a battlefield. What is going on in life is that we are fighting with the devil in order to collect our birthright. The devil is not a gentleman, and faith is not gentle stuff. Faith demands violence to overcome. Only a roof tearing faith prevails (Mark.2:4). And from the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. – Mathew.11:12.

To get a lion’s share, you must have a lionheart. Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah. You can’t claim to be Lion’s brother, except you’re one. Picture Lions. They are always composed. Have you ever seen an anxious Lion? (Even your postures should send fear to the devil).

There is a battle going on between:

  • God and the devil
  • Good and evil
  • Light and darkness
  • Success and failure
  • Life and death
  • Abundance and hunger

In John.10:10; KJV.,

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”

MIND

Your mind is the battleground. Your thinking faculty can either make or break you. Your mind is the devil’s object of attack. That’s where you fight and win all the battles of life. If you lose there, you lose in reality. Therefore, discipline your thoughts. Guard the loins of your heart. Cast down all high logics, traditions and idiosyncrasies that exalt themselves against the knowledge of Christ by bringing every thought to captivity (2.Cor.10:4-5; Prov.4:23).

Get this straight: You can’t think of failure and arrive at success. It’s poverty thoughts that make poverty. Defeatist thoughts make a defeat.

That is why the bible says: Fight the good fight of faith (1Tim.6:12). Faith is like a weapon you can handle to quench every fiery dart of the wicked (Eph.6:16).

In Summary,

  • Your world is a word framed world.
  • The world is a market.
  • The world lies in a magnetic field of wickedness.
  • The world is a battlefield. You fight and win the battles in your mind.
