Hey hey hey.
So, this man had just stood to start preaching in our bus, when I brought out my earpiece to watch a video I had just gotten notification for.
As I kept using my phone, God clearly told me that one day when He asks me to preach in a bus too, someone will be pressing phone and it will pain me.
I had read on sowing and reaping that same morning; and He reminded me of it at that time. Bolaji, this is what you’re sowing and it is what you will reap.
See, sometimes we expect God to be Mr. Nice guy, but sometimes He gives it to us without flowers. Simple. It might pain us, but the message will sink into our souls.
That same day, I got a notification to watch a lady on Periscope and guess what her topic was- “Sowing and repaing!”
In my mind I was like- “Oh well, God I get the message already!” But I don’t think I did, because that lady broke down some things for the viewers and I got more revelation.
Funny thing was that I had also read about sowing and reaping in Joel Osteen’s “Your best life now.”
That was 3 times in one day. God, I hear you loud and clear!
Another interesting thing happened.
While walking to class, I saw and noticed this adage hanging on the wall to my class. It says-“The offspring of an elephant will never be a dwarf.”
Note that I pass this same adage almost everyday but don’t even blink twice to notice it. I read it, but I then forget.
However, immediately after I heard this woman’s message at night, somehow I remembered the adage I saw in school.
There was a correlation.
Did the Elephant sow a dwarf?
Plainly put, did the Elephant sleep with a dwarf?
Then why should the Elephant give birth to a dwarf?
Please, think about this.
It goes the same way.
Did the dwarf sow an Elephant?
So why on Earth should the dwarf expect an Elephant as harvest?
You see, many of us (including me) in this case are the dwarf. We sow so little, but expect so much.
Is God a magician?
Will He do “abrakadabra” just to fulfill our every wish?
Nope. He wouldn’t.
And that’s what He was telling me yesterday.
Be careful of the things you sow, because harvest is coming.
I love how Joel Osteen put it in his book. He said if you want kindness, then sow kindness. If you want mercy, then sow mercy. Sow some love if you want love.
Isn’t it funny how we Christians can sometimes be the most negative, rude and unfair people around.
Something can be excused when we’re the ones doing it, but becomes a huge offense when someone else does the same thing!
You’re there splashing water on people during the rainy season because you now have a car; but you get mad when your boss at work splashes insults and negative comments at you at work. (Ok, I don’t know where that came from, but it’s for someone.)
When you think about it well, you’d see how unfair this whole thing can be.
Why do we want the same harvest of someone who we know has sown and paid a higher price than we did.
I know. I know. We’re the favoured of the Lord and God definitely guards us jealously and gives us what we don’t even deserve; but that’s not today’s message.
At least, God wasn’t telling me how He spoils me yesterday. He was telling me to watch my seeds!
Seeds of envy, jealously, gossip, unhappiness, grouchiness, rudeness, stingyness, lies, ungratefulness, ignoring others, etc.
Seeds can be ANYTHING!
AS IN, ANYTHING.
You might think pressing phone while someone preaches in a bus means nothing, but God chastised me on that samething.
So, will it be fair if I become mad at ‘another sister’ who decides to press her phone while I’m talking to her about Jesus?
Oh, puliz! Let’s evaluate ourselves o.
You don’t tithe. Tithing is not for you, but you want the promises that God has attached to tithing.
Is it fair?
My people, what are we even sowing?
Let’s think about it o.
Let’s think about it!
Have an amazing time ahead.
