circumstances will defeat them just as a farmer who neglects his field because of the cold, wind, and clouds: He that observeth the wind shall not sow; and he that regardeth the clouds shall not reap. (Ecclesiastes 11:4) An important strategy of spiritual harvest is that of sowing regardless of the circumstances of life : Happy and fortunate are you who cast your seed upon all waters when the river overflows its banks; for the seed will sink into the mud and when of the waters subside will spring up; you will find it after many days in an abundant harvest... (Isaiah 32:20, The Amplified Bible) You must sow beside all waters which means in all circumstances of life. Even when the rivers of difficult circumstances overflow the banks of your life, you must continue sowing. God has promised it will bring abundant harvest. YOU HARVEST IN PROPORTION TO THE AMOUNT SOWN: Remember this: He who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously and that blessing may come to someone, will also reap generously and with blessings. (II Corinthians 9:6, The Amplified Bible) This principle applies in every area of your spiritual life. If you give grudgingly of your time, talents, and finances to the work of God, then your harvest will be small. If you sow generously, you will reap abundantly. There are different levels of productivity in spiritual harvest described in John 15. You can bring forth: -Fruit: -More fruit: -Much fruit: -Permanent fruit:

John 15:2 John 15:2 John 15:4 John 15:16

God's desire is that you bring forth much fruit and that it is permanent. Peter identified some qualities you should develop in your life in order to be fruitful: And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience 60
