Daily Devotional – 2/10/14 “For whatever you sow …”

Aren’t you glad God doesn’t pay us back in the same way we pay him? No, I’m not talking about tithes and offerings but I’m speaking on teaching, helping, loving, giving, studying, going, doing and being. See, God gives us another opportunity to thank Him yet we don’t take it. He gives us another day to live a life that is pleasing yet we let the sun go down yet again without living it. He gives us another moment to make things right but we’d rather allow the time to slip right on by. He gives us a fresh anointing today yet we’d rather still borrow from yesterdays. He erases all of our past mistakes yet we’re still searching back there to find them. He allowed the door to close because it wasn’t right for you yet you’d rather sneak through the window to get in. He even placed a closed sign on the road you were heading down yet you drove right on past it. Yep, you were warned but you’ve ignored all the signs. Oh, but let me tell you that the bible says in Galatians 6:7, “Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.” Yea, you’re wondering why you’re going through hell but isn’t that all you’ve sown? You keep wondering why you haven’t gotten your spouse yet when you keep digging in somebody else’s relationship. You’re trying to understand why no one will call you a friend but you have to first show yourself as friendly. You’re trying to figure out why no one will have your back yet you’re the one who likes to throw rocks and hide your hand. Yea, I know you’ve heard that karma is something that exist but God doesn’t work in karma because, again, you only get back what you sow for Hosea 10:12 says, “Plant the good seeds of righteousness, and you will harvest a crop of love. Plow up the hard ground of your hearts, for now is the time to seek the LORD, that he may come and shower righteousness upon you.” But hold up because Job 4:8 says, “those who plow evil and those who sow trouble reap it.” It’s all about what you sow.

See, you’ve got to stop with all this back and forth stuff. You have to stop being a convenient Christian when God is a constant companion. Stop being a rocky type Christian. You know the one the bible describes in Luke 8:13, “Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away,” when God is the only rock you need. All I’m saying is be very careful what you plant and where you plant it because although it may take a while, you’ll still reap it. Yes, God promises us trouble but this is the trouble that He prepares us for. All that other stuff, that’s on you!
