“They found an Egyptian in a field and brought him to David. They gave him water to drink and food to eat- part of a cake of pressed figs and two cakes of raisins. He ate and was revived, for he had not eaten any food or drunk any water for three days and three nights.” ?
~1 Samuel 30:11-12
David and his men were on a quest to recover the lives of their wives and children. The Egyptian they found on the way was dying;in the throes of death. When David and his men recovered him from death and saved his life, they did exactly what they wanted for their own families, thus basically sowing a seed to that effect.
At some point in your quest for recovery, you must pause and diligently sow seeds of recovery.
Everything reproduces after it’s kind
“Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds”. And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.”
Understand the power of sowing what you want. Once you determine what God wants you to have, plant a seed after it’s kind. If you want authority and influence, sow the seed of authority and influence into God: let Him rule over you. If you want greater insight into God’s word, diligently share the little insight you already have. If you want souls, sow your own life into God.
There is a time to sow
God provides the opportunity for seed sowing. It is however up to you to embrace it. Understand that God set up the seed principle as a vital key to receiving what He has already provided for you.
Recovery is a harvest
By sharing their vital supplies with the dying Egyptian, David and his men planted seeds of recovery in his life and secured their own recoveries. The point here is this: Whatever you want to have, make it happen for another.
The Egyptian that David and his men revived, represents the need you must meet on your way to recovery. Sow your seeds before the conflicts of life.
