Read Mark 4:26-29 (NLT)
Everyday you spend time in God’s word, in prayer and meditation on what He is speaking to you, a deposit is occurring in your spirit. Your “account” is growing in value and future withdrawals will be possible. You will be able to withdraw knowledge about who God is and how he works next time you’re tested and tempted to doubt him. You will be able to take out a large amount of TRUTH to combat any lies the enemy throws your way.
As you make small daily investments, it’s virtually un-noticeable. Just like a savings account earning interest: if you check it everyday, you might not realise it’s actually changing. But over time, you can look up and see progress.
God is actually supernaturally at work on your behalf. Just like the farmer doesn’t understand how his sowing seed actually produces a harvest (the earth produces the crop on its own), the evidence in your life will come because of God’s miraculous touch on your life.
Maybe you’re at the stage where the seed is in the ground and you see/feel nothing? Or, you’re watering daily and you can see a sprout but it feels tiny and insignificant? I encourage you to keep investing! Soon, you will see fruit from the internal work God has done. A harvest is surely on its way if you continue to give God something to work with.
Jesus, I commit to investing daily in my relationship with you. This year, I want to reap a supernatural harvest in my spiritual life. Take what I’m giving you in time, meditation on your word, and prayer and do something to change me from the inside out. I ask that my life and influence be enlarged because of the out- working of my private life with you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
