The sowing of seed is God's method of multiplication.
When we ask for a harvest from God, He is looking for the sowing of a seed given back to Him as a step of faith; as a person is faithful to release a seed from their hand and give it back to God, God is faithful to open the windows of heaven and supernaturally pour it back into their life.
Everything made, just like a seed, contains an invisible instruction on what to become.
A person doesn't DETERMINE what they are -- they DISCOVER what they are.
Whatever of value someone has in their hand that they're willing to dedicate or give up for a noble or worthy cause -- whatever of this seed of his that leaves their hand never leaves his life; it goes into their future where it will multiply.
It's one of the laws affecting our success.
What kinds of things can a person sow? ... anything that has value (kindness, patience, knowledge, talent, time, money, mercy, wisdom, forgiveness, gentleness, love, joy, peace, etc.) is a seed.
This web site has value, thus, this web site is a seed.
A prayer of faith is a seed.
Every person is a walking warehouse of seed; God gives us seed, knows what it can produce, and He's looking for a receiver.
Something you've been given can be traded for anything you've been promised; something a person has in their hand can be taken from the present and thrown into their future where it will be amplified.
Nothing leaves heaven until something leaves the Earth [ See blog, Bus Station ].
If one type of seed hasn't yielded the results we've expected, then maybe it's time to change the type of seed we're sowing.
If money, for example, isn't helping to solve some problem, then we can try sowing some time seed, and give that problem a little more of our time and non-judgmental attention.
God will never ask us for something we do not have; He'll ask us for something in our hand that we want to keep.
Nothing leaves heaven until something leaves the Earth; when a person releases something from their hand they want to keep and gives it back to God, God releases something from His hand.
When someone lets go of something they can see, God lets go of something they can't see.
We have it on the authority of God's Word that we can sow our way out of hardship and trouble.
Whatever a person is willing to walk away from determines what God is willing to bring to them; it also requires expectation after the sowing, because expectation is a show of faith.
Expectation of a harvest is important -- because if we rape our seed of expectation, then we remove God's authority to multiply it.
Everything we create in terms of a theme or idea for a new piece of music contains an invisible instruction on what to become, just like a seed.
It's the Law Of The Seed.
If we keep what we've got, that's our harvest; when it's thrust into our future, it becomes a seed, and ANYTHING we have that we give back to God, we will get back a hundredfold.
There's a difference between a mosquito and an elephant; mosquitoes reproduce overnight, when it takes elephants a good deal longer; the point is, we need to decide what kind of future we want -- a mosquito future or an elephant future -- because when we have to wait a time to see results from sowing a big seed, it's because God is planning a harvest that's bigger than we can ever imagine (See blog, Law of Difference].
The form or procedure best suited to bring out the best in our theme is locked up within the theme itself and depends upon its nature and shape [See blog, Getting Started With Writing, Part XXVIII].
Put another way, such a theme or subject contains an invisible instruction on what best to become; it too is subject to the Law of the Seed, and it is for the composer, as its vinedresser, to bring that seed into fruition.
