And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them.
For your request to be granted, you have to apply relevant keys. Many people desire financial breakthrough but are not prepared to apply the right key, unsurprisingly, the door just won't open.
2 Corinthians 9:6 says
You must sow bountifully and if you don't sow, do not expect a harvest.
Do you know some people are expecting a harvest when they have not sowed?
For such people, their harvest will come as a big bang that will attract people but it will have nothing in it. What a shame that will be, but it shall never be our portion only if we make up our mind to sow in a good soil.
However, it is not enough to sow, you must adhere to all the conditions necessary for a good harvest. For instance, in the parable of the sower documented in Matthew 13:3-8;
Seeds must be sown on good soil, any seed sown on bad soil has automatically been lost and the harvest lost.
WHAT IS A BAD SOIL?
A bad soil is a soil that God does not want you to sow into at that material time, no matter how logical or pressing the need is. A bad soil may not necessarily be a soil that is bad it could also be an individual God says you should not give to and you disobey thinking you know better than God or you know how much the fellow is in need, you have acted in disobedience and lost both seed and harvest. You might be punished for disobedience.
A bad soil is also one that glorifies Satan openly or secretly while claiming to be a godly organization.
A bad soil is equally sowing into a cause that will increase the flamboyance, empty pride and sinful life style of its recipient.
Any seed sown in a bad soil will always be devoured by the enemy.
Ask to be led of God before you sow in causes that are not clear to you, lest you waste your seeds and lose your harvest.
