Biblical Keys to See Your Financial Seeds Sprout

by | Apr 11, 2019 | Business & Marketplace, Finances & Career

“God, I have sown seed, what is happening to the seeds I have sown?”

Have you ever needed an answer to that question? I know I have. Thankfully, God has the answer.

Zechariah 8:12 (NKJV) says; For the seed shall be prosperous, the vine shall give its fruit, the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew—I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these.

Let me break down the significance of this verse as we look at the deeper meaning behind some of the words.

In this verse, the word “seed” is defined as “sowing time.”

The word “prosperous” is defined as “welfare, health, prosperity, peace, wholeness and well-being.”

The word “give” is defined as “to pour out, and without fail.”

The word “increase” is defined as “wealthy, fruitful and increasing.”

The word “remnant” is defined as “those who remain, those who are at rest.”

And finally, the word “possess” is defined as “to inherit and to possess in our hand.”

In other words, our sowing time, our seed, will produce welfare, health, prosperity, peace, wholeness and well-being. Without fail, it will produce these things and it will continue producing until we are wealthy and fruitful. That is, if we are one of those who remain in faith, resting in the promises of God. If we are one of those—we will inherit this promise—without fail.

Oh, my word! This is enough to shout about, don’t you think?

We must stop seeing our seed as simply money we give to a project or a church. Instead, let us begin to see it as a powerful prospering force we call seed. One that will produce, not only increase in finances, but everything God said it would. Health, peace, wholeness, well-being and prosperity.

Listen, if you have all the money in the world, and your body is broken down or diseased, you are not whole. God knows it takes prosperity in spirit, soul, body and finances to make us whole. Therefore, His promise concerning our seed covers everything we need to be whole in every area.

The word for peace, shalom, means nothing broken and nothing missing. That means, our seed, planted in good ground, has the power to produce shalom—nothing broken or missing in our life.

Isn’t that good? Of course, it is!

Now, let’s read this same Scripture in the Amplified version of the Bible:

“For there the seed will produce peace and prosperity; the vine will yield its fruit, and the ground will produce its increase, and the heavens will give their dew. And I will cause the remnant of this people to inherit and possess all these things” (Zech. 8:12).

From now on, when you sow your seed, declare over it, “Today, seed, you are blessed! You are producing peace and everything that comes with it in my life, and you are producing prosperity, in Jesus’ name.”

The Bible say we shall declare a thing and it shall be established. Declare this word of God over every seed you sow … and watch it increase and grow until you see the fulfillment of this scripture. Lay hold of peace and prosperity. The word of God works, without fail. To God be all the glory! {eoa}
