Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
The Church has not fully understood “sowing faith.” I think there’s been a trembling happening around this sowing faith because people are attached to their money and are questioning the process when they give.
The five weights that can be on someone’s seeds are the following:
When is it going to happen?
They ask. How is it going to happen?
Who is God going to use?
Where will they come from?
Why it hasn’t come yet?
If you are asking these questions, you have to stop and finally turn your seed loose! Lay aside those weights on your seed, and let God do His part. God determines who he’s going to use in the process of bringing your harvest to you. God determines how it’s going to all work out.
Your job is to look beyond present situations and forget about those five weights. I want you to see yourself out of debt. See yourself driving the best. See yourself wearing the best. See yourself living with the best of everything.
