My friend, have you poured and poured into your spiritual or literal children, with little reward? If so, the Lord wants to encourage you today and tell you that your children are RIGHT NOW rising up and calling you blessed!
The Lord says this to you today:
“You have sown seeds of faithfulness into people for many years, and various things have happened to the seed.
Some seed was sown on fallow ground, and the enemy ate it up before it took root. Other seed fell on good ground at the wrong season, and that seed had to sleep awhile before it could germinate. But some seeds you sowed fell on faithful ground, even though you didn't realize it would take time to germinate.
Time is one of the things My people struggle with the most.
The passing of time feels like a curse to you, for you want everything immediately. But, it is the nature of the seed to require time to germinate. Be not weary in well-doing, for in due season you shall reap if you faint not. And be not weary in sowing seeds, for in due season the majority of your seeds will come up if you do not lose heart.
You thought all the seeds you sowed were planted in right season and right soil, but only I know the hearts of people. Only I know the times and seasons with precision clarity. Only I know what is happening in every heart, along with what will happen and what will not happen.
In many instances, you thought your seeds were dead. You thought your time was wasted.
You thought your love was wasted. You thought your investment of time was discarded and cast aside by those into whom you sowed. You saw your efforts bear no fruit, and you thought that was the end of it.
However, I want you to know that the end you saw was not the end at all.
You saw what you thought was the end of the matter, and you gave up–but I never did. I saw the real end of the matter, for every matter ends in My eternity–not in your temporal world. And I looked in the Spirit and had great hope, for I saw roots sprouting underground long after you moved on and wept at the death of your seed.
I never forget a seed, and I always bring godly resurrection to every seed that was sown by the leading of My Spirit.
Back when you were sowing, you listened to Me carefully. You followed My instructions with clear ears and clear hearing. So why did you think I would abandon the seeds I told you to sow? Why would you feel like all your labor was in vain?
For your labor was not in vain,” says the Lord. “Indeed I tell you today: Your children are RIGHT NOW rising up and calling you blessed.
Your spiritual and natural children are rising up even now to call you blessed, and you didn't even know it.
You didn't see it coming because you had given up, but I never forget your work and labor of love which you have performed for all the saints. I never have forgotten the tears you sowed into My throne room, seeding the atmosphere of the Holy of Holies with your permission for Me to work My own will on the earth. I never have forgotten that you stood in the gap when I needed you.
And now I am bringing you your reward.
You gave up, but I labored behind the scenes to bring forth your harvest. I have been working all this time to bring you your reward. Did I not say that he who comes to Me must believe that I exist, and that I am the REWARDER of those who diligently seek Me? Did you somehow think that, when you interceded before Me, I would neglect and ignore your prayers and give you a completely unrelated reward?
Hope springs eternal, and hope is springing up in you right now.
I tell you today that the rewards I have for you–AND I HAVE MANY REWARDS–are closely related to the petitions for which you asked when you prayed. Do I have other rewards as well? Yes, of course, and I will give you those rewards also. But you did not become weary in well-doing, and I promised you that you would reap–AND YOU WILL.
In the coming days, EXPECT to hear the blessing of your children in your ears.
I want you to expect the ringing of the phone. I need you to anticipate with Me the joy of hearing your children's voices in your ears. I want you to know that I am bringing your children back to themselves, and they will realize and know that I am the Lord and that I put them into your life for such a time as this.
My people's steps are ordered by My instruction and by My Spirit. I am the One who leads and guides you. I am the God who brings you comfort. I am God who encourages you, and it is just as true that I am the God who has been watering the seeds you sowed into your children.
Expect breakthrough, for breakthrough is coming.
Continue in well-doing and do not grow weary. Remember your seeds and plead the water of My Spirit, available to you by the blood of Jesus, over your seeds in prayer. Your prayers will not return void as you water your seeds with My Word. You shall yet rejoice in the shadow of your children's joy, and it will be well with you.
Love, the original Abba Father who has sown more seeds into you than you could count.”
Abba Father, I receive it. Thank You for that encouraging word!
