You Reap the Same in Kind as what you Sowed. Let's say that you are a farmer. You get up in the morning and you go out to your cornfield. The reason it is a cornfield is because you planted corn there. That corn has been growing. You would not be too surprised to find the absence of a field of apples. The only way you can find apple trees is to first plant apple seeds.
You Reap in Proportion to what you Sow.
Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. (2 Corinthians 9:6).
You Reap in a Different Season than when you Sowed. When a farmer goes out and plants his seed in the ground, he does not plan on coming out the very next day to partake of the harvest. He knows that there must first be a long period of growth.When God speaks a word, it becomes absolute law! It emanates forth from His nature as a divine law.
God made provision for our spirit and He also made provision for our flesh.
He gave us physical food to feed the physical flesh part of our being. He intended for us to sow first to the spirit, and as a result of our sowing to the spirit, the flesh would reap its own blessings. As a result of our sowing to the spirit and to the spiritual things, the power and the g1ory and the blessings in the life of God would be manifested in the physical, in the flesh. But through the workings of the devil and through the fall, this plan of God was reversed and instead of the spirit ruling ever the flesh now the flesh man rules over the spirit. Instead of first seeking the Kingdom of God having all the fleshly, material things come as a result of that being added unto us, man seeks first the fleshly things and neglects his spirit. He sows to the flesh and ignores the spirit, and the result of that is corruption.
