Think Outside The Box

OutsideTheBoxTrust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.  Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take (Proverbs 3:5-6).

When we find ourselves overwhelmed by a natural problem, I believe it’s time to “think outside the box” and begin to look for a supernatural answer from God and from His Word. And that spiritual answer often includes sowing a seed of faith.

You may have a great relationship with God, a wonderful family, and good health in your body, but if there is an area of life where Satan can trap you, that troubled area can spill over into other areas of your life and take over your focus. Pretty soon that problem area can dominate your entire life―it’s all you think about―and then you become bound by an area you can’t get free in.

Life presents many opportunities to sow seed, whether it’s a seed you sow to be released from debt or a seed of love sown to be released from strife or any other area you need help in. Malachi 3:10–11 tells us when we give to God He rebukes the devourer for our sake, no matter what that area is.

Seed-Faith isn’t just about financial seed-sowing―it works in every realm of life! Galatians 6:7 NKJV says, Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.

As you plant the first seed (forgiveness, love, favor), barriers can be broken supernaturally and you can reap the harvest you need in the natural.

When you choose to sow a seed to God as your Source, He can use it to supernaturally release breakthroughs for the problems you face!
