Let me ask you something. Do you believe the wicked will reap what they sow? If not, do you believe the righteous will reap what they sow? If so, why believe good will reap and bad won't? The Word doesn't discriminate.
Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. Galatians 6:7 NKJV
This doesn't say if you sow wickedly you will not reap wickedly. It says, you get what you sow no matter what. But let's read further.
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. Galatians 6:8 NKJV
What exactly is sowing in the flesh? Well, we people, who are made in God's image, are three-part people. How do I know? Because God is three-part. So, our flesh would be our body and the Spirit would be our spiritual part, the part that links us directly to God. Sowing in our flesh would be sowing into the soul of our corrupt nature and it will reap destruction. But our spirit is of Godly nature and it's our spirit we should sow into. Feed your spirit.
You know the song:
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow.
You want to grow? Then sow into your spirit. But let's move on.
And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9 NKJV
I'll be honest with you. Sometimes I want to yell WHEN, GOD! WHEN!!!! I mean how much more can I do in such a corrupt place. But there it is. You don't yell that. Nope. You don't grow weary. You keep going for your Father in Heaven sees and will honor you. It will come back to you. It's a biblical principle.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:10 NKJV
Every opportunity you have to do good to your brother or sister in Christ, do it. If you can feed them, feed them. If you can house them, house them. But even easier, if you can just be there for them, be there. Pray with them. Encourage them.
But what does all of this have to do with Psalm 37?
A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But the LORD upholds the righteous. Psalms 37:16-17 NKJV
The little you have will always be better than the wicked because everyone reaps what they sow. If the wicked gained it through the flesh, it will only lead to destruction. The arms of the wicked shall be broken. No, not their physical arms, although that would be super funny to see all the wicked people walking around armless. But no. These arms means power. Their power will be broken over you. They will not prevail.
Last week after I told my friend they were dealing with a Jezebel spirit, the very next day all hell broke loose for them. They called me, we prayed and I told them Jezebel was defeated already. And yep. Everything that Jezebel and her cronies threw at them was thwarted by our Father. Nothing was successful against them. The weapons formed (and oh did they form), but none, not one, prospered. The powers of Jezebel were destroyed! That ugly spirit was walking around armless. Lol.
But if you hold on, a little longer, continue sowing into the Spirit and doing good, you will harvest a good crop. Trust God. He will never fail you.
