Whoever sows generously will also reap generously. (2.Cor 9:6)
If we want an abundant harvest, we must be sowing generously. Yet, it takes
more than that. If you sow your seeds on bad soil, or on rocks and thorns,
you will have a tiny or no harvest at all. If you sow your seeds on fertile
soil, and you water it, then you can expect an abundant harvest.
For years I have been sowing many seeds, but over the last one and a half
years in Kansas City I have found soil that's extremely fertile, our faith
being built up constantly by the many financial testimonies in our church. I
stepped out in faith when the Lord told me to go to Kansas City and that He
would provide for me (I had no money, and I'm not allowed to work in the US),
and while it was extremely tough at times, the Lord's been bringing in some
harvest. Over the past two months I've seen much fruit - after the theft of
my computer brought a turn-around in my life - really in every area of my
life. God is so awesome, and He's preparing me for the great things He has
prepared for me to do.
Somehow however, the devil's not learning his lesson, and I'm rejoicing about
an opportunity for the Lord's name to be glorified, as He is taking care of
the following situation: My Mom informed me that the social
security/insurance (mandatory) in Austria demands 1,600 USD
from me. After having received my tax statement and done some recalculating,
that's the amount I supposedly still owe them for the first 5 months of 2001
before I left.
I'm not surprised that the enemy is coming to challenge and distract - I've
been sowing more than ever in the last few weeks, as money has come in,
enjoying the ability and bless, until the seeds were all sown. But he cannot
get me to dig up seeds, or regret having sown them. The Lord is my Shepherd
and will surely take care of this situation - whether by sending the money or
another way. Somehow it doesn't seem right to me to use Kingdom money that
way. There's so much to do out there to advance His kingdom! Just the last few
days the Lord has been speaking to me about joining a Todd Bentley (together
with Heidi Baker) ministry team to Malawi next March, where hundreds of
thousands will not only hear the gospel, but be fed every day.
There's so much to do, and I'm sick of the enemy hindering the advancement of
His kingdom simply by binding God's people with lack of finances. It's time
to rise up and take the nations for the glory of God!
Join me in prayer, intercession and/or by financial support, as the Lord
leads, so that His name may be glorified!
