5 Methods God Will Use To Bring Money (Part 1)

Updated on June 12, 2011

God is concerned about the needs of mankind and he has set laws in the earth that govern finance. Once these laws are followed, a person will begin to experience the gracious giving of God. The first of these methods that we will examine is sowing and reaping.

                                              Sowing and Reaping:

While the earth remains,and seed-time harvest and cold and heat and summer and winter and day and night shall not cease. (Genesis 8:22)

Sowing and reaping also known as seed-time and harvest is both a natural and spiritual law in the earth. When a farmer plants corn seed for example he will not reap back beans or peas, but the corn he has sown because the harvest is never different from what has been sown. Galatians 6:7 declares be not deceived God is not mocked for whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap. Notice this law remains as long as there is summer and winter and night and day. Because these still exist, so does the law of seed-time and harvest.

But this I say he which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposes in his heart so let him give; Not grudgingly or of necessity for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:6-7).

The bible uses the metaphor of seed as money so when a person sows a seed of lets say $20.00 into the life of a needy person, they have actually by faith given to God a $20.00 seed and he promises to give it back because he will never be indebted to anyone (Proverbs 19:17). Because every seed bears after its own kind, in this case money being sown, a person can expect God to harvest the money back in one form or another.

Some years back I decided to give away some of my nice clothes and then I did not think about it again because I was happy to help someone. After a while (Year or two later) someone told a friend of mine that they wanted to give me some clothes if I would be willing to receive them. I said yes and I went out of town to meet this person. Unfortunately she had lost her son and wanted to give me his clothes.

There were new suits that still had price tags still on them. What caught my attention though was that the clothes fit me even though this lady did not know anything about me.This is a good example of sowing and reaping because I sowed clothes and I harvested clothes.

                                                 Seed Time and harvest

Harvesting a sown seed does not happen overnight but time is involved and a person must be willing to wait. A farmer does not plant and then wait two days later and harvest what was planted because the seed would not be ready. Many people may give and expect God to give them a harvest in two days when they actually have not given him time to work on the harvest. Isaiah 40 says they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength, not they that wait on the seed sown (smile). If we learn to wait on him, then when his time for our harvest comes, everything will be great!

God gives the increase

I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6)

When a farmer plants seed, all that he can do is plant and water it but God must cause the seed to grow underground where the farmer has no idea whats going on. All he knows is that the blade appears, then the ear and then the full corn of the ear where he then puts in the sickle because the harvest has come (Mark 4:28-29). Many people become upset if they don't see anything happening and then the blade appears... and they harvest the blade. The blade is not the harvest, but an encouragement to the farmer that the harvest is moving along. God will show the sower small advances toward the harvest but only to encourage them to wait for the complete harvest.
