When a farmer plants seeds, they know exactly what their harvest is going to be. If they plant tomatoes, they can expect a harvest of tomatoes. If they plant corn, they expect a harvest of corn. Whatever they’re planting, they expect that harvest.

Giving to the Kingdom of God is compared to planting a seed. Like the farmer, when we give to the Kingdom, we should expect to receive a harvest. Not only should we expect a harvest, we should expect to receive whatever we’ve planted. For instance, prior to giving, we can declare this seed is for revelation on our business. After our declaration and seed, we can be in expectation of a harvest of revelation. We can sow for a promotion, a new house, a job, or anything else we need or desire.

When we give to the Kingdom with an expectation to receive a harvest, we open another pathway for God to bless our lives.

2 Corinthians 9:10 (NLT) For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.
