During Bible study, prayer, listening to sermons and teachings, often there will be a jump in my spirit as a seed is planted by the Holy Spirit. I have a choice what will happen next. By meditating on The Word, watering with prayer and further Bible study, I allow the seed to take root. The harvest comes in my soul to plant the seed and then share to bring forth a fruitful harvest.
When a scripture and truth comes to mind, write it down, ponder the truth, study God’s word and apply it to your life. I have a file on my computer with several thousand seeds, small nuggets waiting for the time when they will be ready to go further. Sometimes the seed needs nurturing, time to grow, time to be fully realized. Other times, a seed may already be sprouting, ready to stand on its own and is ready to be shared.
What has the Holy Spirit been showing you? What seed has He planted in your heart? Plant the seed by watering and nurturing through prayer and further study, then in the proper time share the seed and enjoy watching God’s harvest blessings.
“And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty.” ~ Matthew 13:23 (NASB)
