And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; 27 And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. 28 For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. – Mark 4:26-28
Have you planted your seed — have you hidden God’s Word in your heart, meditating on it and speaking it out loud so that faith is continually flowing in your life? Have you seen the first signs of the “blade” — your answer — breaking through the soil from the unseen realm to the realm of the “seen”? If you haven’t, don’t quit. Hold on to your faith. If you give up, you’ll yank that seed out of the ground before it has had time to germinate and grow. But if you won’t quit, sooner or later, that seed is destined by God to do its mighty work and to produce in your life what you planted it for.
Or maybe you’ve experienced a measure of success in your finances. You can remember a time when you could barely pay your bills, but now you’re witnessing the “ear” forming on the plant. Don’t quit now before you get the “full corn in the ear” — the manifestation, or fruit, of your faith. You can keep using your faith to go as high as you want to go! So don’t quit until you’re satisfied with your harvest, but don’t forget to be thankful and content at each step and stage along the way!
