You Reap What You Sow


Do you believe what goes around comes around? We always look at it in a bad sense, but it could be a good thing too. This principle is what believers call reaping and sowing. Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. If you sow good things you will reap good things. If you sow bad things you will reap bad things. But it’s amazing how we respond to what we reap as though we don’t remember what we have sown.

Why do we act surprised when we get on the scale and have picked up another five pounds? Never mind the six plates from the all you can eat buffet, along with the chocolate cake and chips you ate last night. And to top it off, you don’t even exercise! Why do we act surprised when people confront us with he said she said and we know we said it. Any time gossip leads, drama follows! Why do we act surprised when we are driving down the street and the gas light comes on? If you don’t put gas in the tank, what do you expect to ride around on, fumes? Why do we act surprised when we smile at someone and they smile back at us? Why do we act surprised when we pray for God to step in, and he does? Why do we act surprised when we step out on faith and as a result, we rise above the situation?

No matter what your position is or what you say, you will always reap what you sow. Whether or not it’s good or bad, it will come to you. If you have been praying and fasting and seeking God for something and it hasn’t happened yet, don’t be surprised when it does. Rejoice and be thankful because you will reap what you sow!
