If We Sow the Word, What Will We Reap?

Isaiah 55:10-11 says, “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from heaven, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

In Luke 6:38, Jesus said, “Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”

Here Jesus shared one of the great principles of the spirit realm. What you sow is what you will reap. And the greatest thing to sow is the Word.

In Mark 4:14 Jesus said, “The sower sows the Word.” With this in mind, if we sow the Word, what will we reap?

Well, here it is. We will reap what we sow. If we sow words of prosperity, then we will reap prosperity. If we sow words of healing, we will reap health. If we sow words of love, we will reap love. If we sow words of peace, we will reap peace. That’s the way it works. If we sow the Word, we will reap what the Word says.

Proverbs 18:21 says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

When the Hebrews were in the wilderness just after they came out of Egypt, they became discouraged. The Bible says that they went to their tents and complained against Moses. Not only did they complain, but they also began to make rash statements. They began to speak negatively. They said, “We will never get out of the wilderness. We were better off in Egypt. We are going to die here.”

That’s what they said and that’s what they got. Not a single Hebrew that complained went into the Promised Land. The Bible says the entire generation died. Only the children and Joshua and Caleb entered into Canaan. They spoke it and it happened. Death and life are in the power of the tongue.

Thousands of years have passed since then, but God’s Word is still the same. Death and life are still in the power of the tongue.

In Mark 11:23 Jesus said, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Jesus put a lot of emphasis on words.

We as Christians cannot speak defeat and expect victory. We cannot speak sickness and expect healing. We cannot speak death and expect life. We will get what we speak. God’s Word speaks victory. God’s Word says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

The Word says in James 5:15, “And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.”

When we sow our words, we must speak words that agree with God. We must sow good seed. When we say we are defeated, we are disagreeing with God. When we are sick and do not believe we can be healed, we are disagreeing with God.

That’s what the Hebrews did in the wilderness. I suggest it’s not good to disagree with God.
