1 CORINTHIANS 3:9 LB 9 We are only God’s coworkers. You are God’s garden, not ours; you are God’s building, not ours.
We discovered that God’s Word is a seed (Luke 8:11). Now we see that the Bible says that we, as believers, are God’s garden — the place where seed is planted.
The question for you to consider is: who determines the harvest? God, or you?
(The harvest I speak of is the fruit, or result, of the Word of God. The harvest of blessing that God’s Word produces in your life.)
I suggest that the harvest is mainly controlled by the one who determines what seed is planted. Would you agree?
If wheat seed is planted, it is unreasonable to expect a harvest of corn. If only a few seeds are planted, it is unreasonable to expect a large harvest. Wouldn’t you agree?
Yes, you are God’s field, but He allows you a lot of freedom to choose what will be produced in your life. And the main way you choose is by choosing what seed will be planted in your heart and mind.
You can choose something other than God’s Word. You can also choose different areas of God’s Word. Planting different scriptures will produce different results in your life.
If all you ever plant are scriptures on the new birth, you cannot expect to have a huge harvest of healing or financial blessing in your life. The choice is yours.
