One day I was in a bank waiting for assistance. I looked up and noticed a sign on the wall that caught my attention. The sign read: “TODAY’S DECISIONS AFFECT TOMORROWS RETURNS”. The scripture came to me which says “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”. In the Kingdom of God, this law also applies. I am not talking about a financial deposit which is also relevant, but I am referring to a spiritual deposit. The quality and quantity of the spiritual deposit that we make into our lives will determine our spiritual return.
People deposit their money into a bank because they believe that it is a safe place. They will deposit it where they will receive the highest interest rate. Whatever we deposit into our spirit will either be beneficial or detrimental to our spiritual lives. What we sow will determine tomorrow’s returns in our lives. The greater the deposit, the greater the return. No deposit, no return. The bible says; 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 life.
The Lord says;
“The deposits which you have made throughout the years were not in vain. The time spent in My word and My presence will yield great results. The prayers that you have prayed will not return void. All that you have sowed will surely bear much fruit and you will see it come to pass. I have seen every divine deposit that you have made throughout the years by continually standing on My Word and praying even when you didn’t see results. What you are depositing into your life and into your spirit will affect your personal life, your family, your ministry and your destiny. The things that you do daily will affect your outcome permanently. It is your decision to stir up the gift that has been deposited inside of you. It is your choice to nurture and cultivate those gifts.
As you were faithful in adversity and steadfast in difficult times, I am a God of justice and I will honor My Word. I will release the gifts that were promised to you and release you into the ministries that were assigned to you. For those of you who have been careless in your walk with Me, return to the place where you once were, and I will receive you and restore you once again. To those of you who have lost much, trust Me as I will watch over My word to perform it. Stay alert, and do not be afraid to go forward because I am with you and I will position you as well as escort you. Do not hide your talents but be prepared to move into the plan that I have designed for you . Your effort will be rewarded and your dreams will come to pass as you continue to abide in Me and simply trust Me.
… says the Lord.
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also”Matthew 6:19-21.
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.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 life.And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart”Galatians 6:7-9.
“Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership. Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all. Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you”1 Timothy 4:14-16.
