Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.
Galatians 6:7 has proven true in my life. I had the chance to plot destruction many many times but I couldn’t go forward with them. I knew my plans would definitely have an outcome that would please me but I always remembered Gods character when it came to earthly consequences.
There was a point that I didn’t believe in Galatians 6:7. I went around thinking that my actions here on earth didn’t have any consequences. I DON’T believe that the Lord repays us as our sins deserve but I do believe that our actions will come back to us one way or another.
If you dig a hole for someone to fall in, the person who will actually fall in it is you. Proverbs 26:27
I laugh when I look back to those moments when people schemed against me and prospered. At the time, I thought they were super successful. Oh, but today, God has been faithful to His word when He said “God will not be mocked, you reap what you sow”.
When God says “He will not be mocked” He’s saying that we may think we are getting away with it now, but God is going to make sure we know that His word stands clear. We will not get away with it.
I recall one of my schemers flaunting a piece of what had been taken from me. The Lord knew how hurt I was and how badly I wanted to see my schemer tossed down a flight of stairs. BUT, the Lord said, “Be still and know that I am God”. So I did. I prayed, prayed and prayed with no answer in return but I knew an answer would come eventually.
I held in so much anger, I held back so many tears, I held back so many right hooks, I HELD BACK ALL HATRED IN ME! I was held back by the nails that crucified my sins. OH JESUS! I wanted to reap great and wonderful things. If I did what my flesh desired, I wouldn’t have all the great things I have today.
I am living proof that we all reap what we sow. For those who know me and know what I have been through can take that verse to the bank with confidence. I planted lies, deceit, hate, sneakiness and whaaaaaaaaat, people lied, fooled and hated me in return.
It’s a cycle my friends. For those who lied, fooled and hated me will reap the saaaaaaaaame thing. If you stole from someone, be prepared in prayer when someone takes the same thing away from you. If you lied to someone, be prepared that the truth WILL come out eventually. If you are being sneaky, be prepared to get fount out.
That’s just how it is. If you plant sunflowers, you get sunflowers. If you plant rutabagas, you will get rutabagas. If you plant peppers, you are not going to get apples. If you plant apples, you are not going to get bananas.
If you plant robbery, you will get extorted.
If you plant lies, you will get lied to and found out.
So check yourself, before you wreck yourself.
If you plant love, you get loved
If you plant forgiveness, you get forgiven.
If you plant hugs, you get hugs.
If you plant Jesus, you get Jesus.
