When it comes to faith, what God gives you first is often a test to see if you still need the rest. God rarely gives you a harvest; He gives you a seed and watches how you’d manage it. Remember the parable of the talents; the master gave them talents according to their abilities, not according to what they needed. The ones that traded with their talents got more, while the one that hid his own lost it. You’d always get more when you trade with what you get first. Don’t tell God that you need a shoe, then you go ahead to buy biscuits with the N500 He gave you. N500 may not buy a shoe, but it can buy a regular slipper for someone who needs it.
Yes, you probably need N200,000 to clear a debt, but what did you do with the N2,000 that came to you first. We need to be like that one leper; the moment he saw a change, he came back to acknowledge the doer. And as he did, he received a second touch. Many believers live with the first touch of God’s blessing, and that’s because they don’t understand the operation of faith. I remember many years ago when I needed N20,000; after my heavy prayers, someone gifted me with N200. Instead of questioning God, I thanked Him for it and looked for someone who really needed N200 and sowed it into his life. It wasn’t long before the N20,000 I needed arrived. If you want the harvest, don’t eat up your seed.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; ALWAYS REMEMBER, IN GOD’S PATTERN, HE’D OFTEN GIVE YOU SEED TO SOW BEFORE HE GIVES YOU BREAD TO EAT. DON’T MISTAKE THE SEED FOR BREAD. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
