Kingdom Interest Rates
Today we are going to use the post Jim did yesterday as a jumping-off point. He shared something that I wholeheartedly agree with and that the Lord showed me a number of years ago. When someone robs you of something, look at what they have taken and decide to view it as seed you have sown, then no one can take anything from you because, in your heart, you have already given it away.
The devil can’t steal a thing from us if we decide to view it as seed sown. That’s a great truth, but, it gets even better. According to the Word, when a thief is caught he must pay back seven times what he stole.
Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry; But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold…. Proverbs 6:30-31a (KJV)
This means that if the enemy steals something from us, we can call him on it, and he must return to us seven times what he took. I imagine that excites a lot of believers. However, if we consider what we have lost as seed we have sown rather than something that’s been taken from us, the return is much greater.
And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred. Mark 4:8 (KJV)
If we refuse to see something that the enemy took as being stolen and instead dedicate it to God and forgive the person the devil worked through to take our goods, we can redirect our “stolen goods” and turn it into seed we’ve sown unto to the Lord. When we do, we can claim the harvest off that seed, which can be 30, 60, or 100 times what we originally had! Now, I’m no mathematical genius, but I do know that that beats seven times any day. So, not only do we get to retain our peace by not getting riled up when the devil tries to steal from us, but we get a much bigger return on our seed.
God is so good! I just love the interest rates of the Kingdom, don’t you?
