God is Sending Seeds of Multiplication! See Your Opportunity and Take It!
I looked on the floor this morning and saw a single pepper plant seed. There was only one, in an area of the house that shouldn’t have ANY…the bathroom. It was totally odd and out of place, and my eyes were drawn to it as a result. At the same time, it was just one tiny, little seed in an ocean of marble floor tile. It could easily have been overlooked.
To me it was obvious God had placed it in just the right spot to catch my attention. As I looked at this little seed on the ground, I heard the Spirit say, “Seeds of Multiplication”. I leaned over and picked it up. I examined it to confirm that it was, indeed, a pepper plant seed, and it was.
Immediately, I envisioned pepper plants growing with multiple peppers on them, each with multitudes of seeds inside each pepper. Each seed has the potential to grow multiple pepper plants with multiple peppers on it, and multitudes of seeds in each one. How many plants could come from this single seed? It has the opportunity to yield astronomical numbers of fruit, multiplied and multiplied — from one single, solitary, tiny, little seed – fruitfulness forever, without end. How brilliant is our Lord?
“But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold (Matthew 13:8 KJV).”
See the opportunity and take it! I believe God is showing us just one facet of the transfer of wealth. The transfer of wealth is not necessarily winning a sweepstakes, or hitting the lottery. It is seeing an opportunity for which the Lord has positioned you, and TAKING IT!
As an example, we just received the opportunity to subscribe to software “in the cloud” for less than 1/60th of the cost of a regular monthly subscription. This is software that we truly need to do what He wants us to do. The Lord made sure that my husband saw that offer, in such a way that he could not overlook it. It is a benefit of working where he works, and believe me, it is a transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous!
“Bless the Lord, O My Soul, and forget not all His benefits (Ps. 103:2 KJV)!”
You see, it is also a BENEFIT of working for the Kingdom! Without Him, we wouldn’t need that software as much as we do. He knows we need it, and He is supplying it, for basically no cost. This one collection of software will enable us to multiply our efforts for the Kingdom, and do it almost for free: a Seed of Multiplication!
God wants us to know that He is setting us into position to see that which will multiply exponentially. It will be something small and seemingly insignificant, something that could easily be overlooked… however, it holds the key to your destiny! Just like the tiny pepper plant seed, it contains Seeds of Multiplication!
“When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him (Genesis 26:12 NLT).”
This ONE THING that God is going to show you, whatever it is, has the potential to branch out into multiple areas of fruitfulness, just like the pepper plant, to both empower you, and to fulfill your Kingdom mandate. God will be sure that you see it, just like Moses, who turned aside to see the burning bush! He knows what you need and will make sure you see it! Ask Him!
“And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt (Exodus 3:3).”
“Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened (Matthew 7:7-8 AMP).”
Put a Demand on Heaven! At the end of last year, Kingdom Promoters was a little upside down. It costs money to go out on the road and minister, as any itinerant minister will agree. I talked to the Lord about it, and I told the Lord that it was His job to make up that deficit. Kingdom Promoters is His ministry, and those were His bills. He was obligated to not only pay them, but to supply the money for 2017, to be sure that I had enough to begin this year. I simply put a Demand on Heaven!
Now understand. It was November. I had no more ministry events on my calendar at that point. I was looking at a bank statement in essence at zero, no money coming in from any source, and a credit card bill of about $2000. I had nothing to pay the bill. However, I did have faith and determination that God was going to step in. Sure enough, He did. But not the way I expected!
I had been teaching free author seminars around the country for the last two years, and I felt as though the Lord was leading me to minister to His ministers, helping them get published inexpensively. God led me to open up a small publishing company. He named it Glorified Publishing.
It turned out that this was my Seed of Multiplication! He started sending ministers who wanted to write books! I was able to help them and minister to them by assisting them to inexpensively write and publish their books. Within a month, those bills were paid, and within sixty days I had plenty to get Kingdom Promoters rolling in 2017, using the Seeds of Multiplication that He had supplied!
I wasn’t looking for this Seed of Multiplication, in fact, I didn’t even recognize it as a seed! But God! He made absolutely certain that I saw it, and pressed me to take the opportunity! He provided this blessing, because He knew exactly what I was going to need, before I ever knew I was going to need it!
“…for your Father knows exactly what you need even before you ask him (Matthew 6:8 NLT)!”
So look around you. Your Seeds of Multiplication are probably completely out of place, odd and may even be easily overlooked. However, fret not, because God is going to be sure that you “zoom-in” and focus on that thing. He will make sure that He draws your attention to it, so that you do not overlook it. It is YOUR blessing, a BENEFIT of where you work and for Whom – the Kingdom of God!
“Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32).”
Many Miracle Multiplication Seed blessings in 2017!
