HARVEST TIME!

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6
 
Have the seeds you planted, began to harvest? Are you seeing the fruit of your labour? Is it what you were expecting? If not, then you may want to reevaluate what you have planted.
 
Galatians 6:7 says, Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Meaning, if you sow good fruit, you will reap good fruit. However, if you sow bad fruit, you will reap bad fruit.
 
Now, what is good fruit? According to Galatians 5:22-23, there are nine fruit of the Spirit that we should possess. They are: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. If we are sowing these fruit, then we have crucified our flesh from the lust of it. Anything that is outside the nine fruit of the Spirit is not of God.
 
If we are honest with ourselves, it will take us the rest of our lives to possess the fruit of the Spirit the way God intends for us to have it. We have to kill our flesh daily. We have to learn to put our flesh under subjection. And this does not happen overnight. It is an ongoing process. Each time we master one area, there is another one ready to be dealt with. Thus, the process continues - from faith to faith, glory to glory.
 
If your harvest is not looking plentiful or bountiful with good fruit, but is plentiful or bountiful with bad fruit, check yourself. Watch what you are saying, as well as what you are doing. Proverbs 18:21 tells us that, Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. Speak only those things that you want to happen. Then your mind will start to follow, and before you know it, you will be able to enjoy the fruit of your labour.
 
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalm 126:5-6
