Today, I read about God blessing our seed. I found this Scripture: “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.” (Psalms 37:25-26) The Scripture is obviously talking about one’s children and granchildren – as the seed of the body. But today, I saw it in a different light.
God loves to bless seed – the tiniest element of new beginnings. His Word is full of seeds – our children and posterity, faith (as a grain of mustard seed), His Son (John 12:24), etc. But I don’t think I ever looked at the word SEED at face value. What if I asked Him to bless my seed, what I put into the ground? I’ve prayed blessings over my plantings – asking God to help them “be fruitful and multiply.” But today, I got a true revelation about blessing my SEED. It’s not just a prayer of words, but a reality.
God blessed seed back at Creation. “And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good.”(Genesis 1:11-12) He called the plants AND the seeds “good.” They were blessed…and produced well.
I will now bless my seed with more intent before planting them, understanding that the Creator intended for seed to produce — to truly be fruitful and multiply — for by His Spirit, the seed can bring forth much more than with the earth alone.
He is a God of seed. So, bless your seed – all seed — and allow the Creator to bring forth much fruit!
