Dear Zoe Partner

Let me ask you a question. Do you believe it is God’s will for you to be successful in every endeavor in life? If you don’t believe it, you should because that is what total-life prosperity means. Don’t allow religion to rob you and tell you that God doesn’t want you to be successful in every way. God’s will is that everything you touch prospers! He wants you to depend on and trust Him for your success. His grace is on your life for a reason—to bear fruit. God’s grace is what empowers you to have sweatless victory in life. If you’re sweating to produce something, you’re not yielding to God’s grace that’s been bestowed upon your life.

I shared that “grace nugget” to keep you encouraged and edified on your personal journey toward total-life prosperity. Never forget that Christianity is about depending on Jesus for everything!
In my June Zoe Partner letter to you, I discussed the process of seedtime and harvest (Step #6). This month, I want to go into more detail about that process in Step # 8 – Recognize the difference between multiplied seed and harvest.

When you plant a seed, two things will come forth: a harvest and more seeds. The farmer who plants corn seed will get a harvest of corn and a harvest of corn seed. It’s vital that you know the difference between a harvest that is additional seed and a harvest that is the thing you’ve been expecting and believing God for. Whenever you don’t receive the full manifestation of what you are believing God for, that additional seed is multiplied seed that should be replanted. Don’t “eat” or squander your additional seed. Keep sowing it. Continue to plant your seed until you receive the desired result that the Word of God has promised you.

Unfortunately, this is what most people do. They plant their initial seed toward something (e.g., a house) and they get a harvest back in some form, perhaps a bonus at work. But if the harvest they get isn’t enough to cover what they need (the down payment for the house), they fail to realize that is not their harvest— that is multiplied seed. Why? It’s not enough to cover what they were believing God for (the down payment). But they are so happy that something came in that they eat (spend) their seed and forget all about what they were sowing it for to begin with. Once they see a return on what they planted, they get excited and feel compelled to do something with it.

That’s why Step #7, which I discussed last month, is so important. You have to stay consistent and committed to what you’ve planted. You can’t plant $50 as your initial seed toward the down payment for a house, then when $500 comes in you spend it, when you really need $5,000 for the down payment. You have to keep planting until you receive what you are believing God for. Capitalize on the seed you’ve sown by taking that multiplied seed and replanting it. Continue to plant your seed until you reach the destination that God’s Word has promised you. Refuse to “eat” your seed! Keep sowing. God wants you prosperous and in a position where no devil in hell will be able to prevent you from reaching your expected end.

What I’m telling you to do is by no means, easy. But that’s where God’s grace comes in. His grace empowers you to overcome your shortcomings and weaknesses. If you have been a spendthrift or someone who has struggled financially and squandered money all of your life, you are a perfect candidate for God’s grace! When you miss it, that’s when His grace super abounds in your life! (Romans 5:20).

Refuse to allow your thinking to be governed by anything outside of God’s Word. God can’t lie. Proverbs 13:22, AMP, “A good man leaves an inheritance [of moral stability and goodness] to his children’s children, and the wealth of the sinner [finds its way eventually] into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up.” Prosperity will find you! Just decide to be a person who commits to God’s way, no matter what! Remember, you are not fighting for the victory—you’re fighting from a position of victory! Your financial prosperity was purchased over 2,000 years ago as a part of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ! It’s already done! Your part is to believe it, receive it by faith, and walk it out. Amen!

In Christ,
