Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap – Galatians 6:7
The Lord Jesus, in narrating the parable of the sower said, “A sower went out to sow his seed…” (Luke 8:5). Then in the eleventh verse, He explained that the seed the sower sowed was the Word of God, letting us know that words are seeds.
We read in our opening verse that what you sow is what you reap. If you sow good seeds (the right words) into your life, they’ll produce the right results. You can’t sow corn seeds, for instance, and expect to harvest mangos; every seed reproduces after its kind. So, the question is, what words are you sowing into your life?
Words come to us when we listen to other people, in messages that we receive from our environment, what we read, watch etc. These words become seeds that are sown into our lives, reproducing the character that we become. Who you are today is not an accident; it’s the result of all the seeds (words) that have been sown into you all your life: by those who took care of you while you were growing up, your environment, the schools you attended, and all the information you received through your senses of hearing and sight. How these words got into you isn’t so important; what’s important is that they did, and today you’re the result of those words.
If those words (seeds) weren’t the right ones, and you want to make adjustments, you have to introduce new “seeds.” You can’t make the adjustment by crying or regretting; you can only do so by sowing the right words into you. Sow words of joy, peace and love, and you’ll reap the same. Your life goes in the direction of your words. If your words are excellent, your life will be excellent.
Stop your heart and ears from the wrong words. The only words you should allow take root in your heart are words that inspire, lift, bless and stir you in the direction of God’s perfect will.

The Lord perfects that which concerns me! I’m the expression of His glory, grace, wisdom and righteousness. I walk in preordained pathways today, and I make progress by the Word, living triumphantly to the glory of His Name. Amen.
