GOING VIRAL PART 3
A speaker was speaking about the power of words in our lives. He asked for questions and one of the audience raised his hand and said I have more of a statement than a question. Go ahead said the speaker. I don’t believe what you are saying said the man. I don’t believe that saying I’m a success I’m a success has any impact on me. It doesn’t make me feel better and it doesn’t make me feel worse. They are only words and they have no power.
The speaker replied, Shut up you idiot, you clearly have no idea what you are saying. In fact you are a total loser.
The audience couldn’t believe it. The mans face went very red and he got angry and was just about to unleash a tirade of obscentities when the speaker put up his hand and said ‘I’m so sorry I shouldn’t have said that and I didn’t mean to upset you. Please accept my most sincere apology.
The man calmed down and sat down and the audience murmured amongst themselves.
The speaker resumed. There sir is the reply to the question you asked me…….
A few words made you very angry and a just a few words calmed you down.
Sir, now do you understand the power of words?
Our words have power, power to build, power to tear down. Power to create life and hope, power to destroy confidence and faith. It’s how powerful your mouth is. It’s how powerful your words are. It’s how powerful your tongue is. It holds the power of life and death.
King Solomon is said to be the wisest man that has ever lived.
Most of us think that it all started when God came to Solomon in a dream and asked him what he would like.
But It didn’t start there. It started when his father spoke powerful life changing words over his son Solomon. Long before Solomon ever got wise, his father spoke it into his life.
Psalms 72: 1 “God, give the king your good judgment”
2“Help him judge your people fairly and decide what is right for the poor.” 3“Let there be peace on the mountains and goodness on the hills for the people.” 8“Let his kingdom go from sea to sea, and from the Euphrates River to the ends of the earth”. “let the kings of Sheba bring their presents to him” “Let him receive gold from Sheba.” “Let all kings bow down to him and all nations serve him.”
His last words to Solomon were these… “You are wise and you will know what to do”
David was sowing powerful destiny into his son.
Who have you built up by your words this week.
Isaiah 51:2 (MSG) 2 Yes, ponder Abraham, your father, and Sarah, who bore you. Think of it! One solitary man when I called him, but once I blessed him, he multiplied
Isaiah 40:29 (AMP) 29 He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound].
Luke 18:30 (MSG) It will all come back multiplied many times over in your lifetime. And then the bonus of eternal life!"
Acts 6:7 (AMP) 7 And the message of God kept on spreading, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem;
Acts 9:31 (AMP) 31 So the church throughout the whole of Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and continued to increase and was multiplied.
2 Corinthians 9:10 (AMP) 10 And [God] Who provides seed for the sower and bread for eating will also provide and multiply your [resources for] sowing
Hebrews 6:14 (AMP) 14 Saying, Blessing I certainly will bless you and multiplying I will multiply you.
Jude 1:2 (AMP) 2 May mercy, [soul] peace, and love be multiplied to you.
TodayI wantto talk to you about the next step of multiplication. If you want to multiply then you have to
1. Get Connected.
2. You have to sow.
Many people get connected, but unless you sow, nothing is left but vague memories. It’s one thing to be aroused and get connected, but it was another thing for Abraham to sow seed. You are supposed to multiply not just have memories of a good time. Sowing means staying connected for long enough for the energy of connection to create something new. Sowing is about legacy, not just immediacy.
This is what david did to Solomon. He sowed destiny into his son.
Words are like seeds planted in the ground. You may not see the result overnight, but you will see the result.
SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO SOW.
- To impregnate something with seed.
The point of sowing is to conceive. To bring to life something with the seed you have. It didn’t matter how many promises Abraham had, he had to sow for it to come to life.
Genesis 38 :8-10 So Judah told Onan, “Go and sleep with your brother’s widow; it’s the duty of a brother-in-law to keep your brother’s line alive.” But Onan knew that the child wouldn’t be his, so whenever he slept with his brother’s widow he spilled his semen on the ground so he wouldn’t produce a child for his brother. God was much offended by what he did.
God gets angry with Onan because he spilled his sperm. Why would God be offended?
Because his seed was meant to create not wasted. Onan was only about himself. He had no concept about multiplication, about the responsibility he had with the creativity he had been given.
This is not a year to withhold your seed. This is a year to impregnate this house with your DNA and creativity.
WHAT SEED DO YOU HAVE
- To make an investment today that can be enjoyed tomorrow.
Sowing is always concerned with the future. It has the future in mind. If you are just focussed on today, you will never sow, because sowing is thinking about the future. If you are concerned only with today, you won’t sow.
Ecclesiastes 11:4 Farmers who wait for perfect weather never sow.
