(08/02/2000) law of season
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: law of season
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every
purpose under the heaven:
We talked about the keys of prosperity and learned
many laws of sowing and reaping.
i. To reap a financial harvest, we need to sow our
finances back into the kingdom of God, very much like
the farmer sowing seed from the first harvest back
into the land.
ii. The measure we sow is the measure we reap. The
more we sow, the more we will reap.
This is another principle that we can learn from
sowing and reaping. There is a season between sowing
and reaping. To everything there is a season. It
doesn't mean that if we sow now, we can reap
immediately (although some of us do). Sometimes God
wants to perfect (mature) us before we receive the
full abundance of the financial harvest.
For the turning away of the simple shall slay them,
and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
If we understand this principle of there being a
season for everything, we will learn to endure and not
give up. We will not look at others & envy them for
their prosperity because we know that there is a
season for everything in our lives. For some of us,
now is the time for our fields to be watered by God
and for our crops to be nurtured. Look at the times
and know the times that God has planned for you. If
you are not reaping your financial harvest yet, know
that when you sow, your season of harvest will be
coming soon. God will perfect and He will fulfill what
He has promised when we follow His ways & not give up.
2. New prayer requests:
i. runaway daughter -- guest
My friend's daughter, Page, is doing drugs and has run
away. Please pray for them.
ii. prayers needed - zissy
I have a few prayer requests:
Pray for my son Benjamin & help him to control his
anger, I need this prayer as well. We had to live in a
violent atmosphere for a long time & we are finally
out but the anger still overwhelms us at times.
Pray for Glenn that he will stay strong & be able to
handle any hard times that comes his way during the
next few months.
I have quite a few medical complications so please
pray that the Lord will heal me & I will once again
iii. spiritual warfare -- prayer
Please pray for Bonnie, Pat, Chris, Carl & Robin. They
are all under spiritual attack. Satan is messing with
them in all forms from doubting God to being lost in
the world, tearing the family apart, & thinking about
ending your life. Please pray & take serious satan
doesn't attack lightly he goes full force & holds
nothing back. I just lost a friend last Saturday due
to suicide, we can't take this from the devil heís a
(wimp). God gave us power so lets use it & ask for
everything Heís got to give and wear our the armor of
god like we are instructed to do. It is for a reason
so letís ( endure suffering along with me, as a good
soldier of Christ Jesus. & as Christ's soldier do not
let yourself become tied up in the affairs of this
life, for then you cannot satisfy the one who has
enlisted you in his army.) [2 Timothy 2:3,4]
Thanks for praying for my friends. It means a lot to
me and them. -- Mark
iv. Prayer for faithfulness & direction -- thankful
I struggle with when & how to tithe on money that is
unaccessible to me yet it is income. I am on a wage
assignment & recently have begun to put both my
children in christian education. This was done in
blind faith & I am still waiting on God & how to
provide for those needs. I need prayer for
faithfulness & direction as well as the door to my
income to be opened so that I can continue to tithe &
support my children. thankful
