RHEMA 11/26/07 THE LORD OVER THE HARVEST
Today I received the following response from a Word I
had posted and it was quickened to share it with you.
If our current circumstances are the results of what we
did in the past, what would be the way out?
Would God intervene and grant deliverance if we repent?
Or is it too late to not bear the full consequences of
COMMENTS FROM SANDY: Scripture is firm that we
reap the seeds we sow. But it also says that because of
God's mercy we are not given what we deserve. It also
says that one plants, one waters but God gives the
increase. The harvest belongs to the Lord and so it is
into His hands that we commit what we have planted,
asking for His forgiveness, mercy and grace to walk
through the separation and fire in our lives.
I believe He grants us exactly what we need to grow into
His image and also learn our lessons well.
Gal 6:7-8 NKJV
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked ; for whatever
a man sows, that he will also reap. 8 For he who sows to
his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who
sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting
Ps 103:8-13 NKJV
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and
abounding in mercy. He will not always strive with us,
nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt
with us according to our sins, nor punished us according
to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above
the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear
Him; As far as the east is from the west, so far has He
removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities
his children, so the LORD pities those who fear Him.
Lam 3:22 NKJV
Through the LORD's mercies we are not consumed,
because His compassions fail not.
1 Cor 3:6-8 NKJV
I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase
. So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who
waters, but God who gives the increase . Now he who
plants and he who waters are one, and each one will
receive his own reward according to his own labor.
Matt 7:17-20 NKJV
Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad
tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad
fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree
that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown
into the fire.
Heb 12:8-11 NKJV
Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected
us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more
readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and
live? For they indeed for a few days chastened us as
seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may
be partakers of His holiness. Now no chastening seems to
be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless,
afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness
to those who have been trained by it.
