Icebreaker: How was your 4th of July holiday?

Purpose: The purpose of this lesson is to build our faith about the future God has for us.

Genesis 8.22 NLT As long as the earth remains, there will be planting and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.

Discussion: There are 6 laws of God to produce a Harvest in our lives. Understanding the importance of these laws is key to seeing any fruit in our lives. Without any seed being planted in the ground, there will not be a harvest of return later in life. Today we will be discussing these laws that guarantee a harvest of blessing in our lives. 

Law #1 - A Seed must be planted to produce a harvest.

Q1- First, let's talk about our thoughts. Positive thoughts are a seed to a positive life. Have your thoughts led more towards positive results or negative results?

Q2-  There will be no harvest without see being planted. What "seed" have you planted this year so far? (In other words, how have your actions, thoughts, offerings prepared you for a good harvest?)

Q3- You never harvest in the same season you plant. Does knowing this give you peace about the waiting process?

LAw #2 - Every seed will produce after its own kind

Genesis 1.11 NLT Then God said, “Let the land sprout with vegetation—every sort of seed-bearing plant, and trees that grow seed-bearing fruit. These seeds will then produce the kinds of plants and trees from which they came.” And that is what happened.

Q4 - If we can change our seed, we can change our results. Is there any results you'd like to change in your life? If so, how can you change your seed to achieve that?

Galatians 6:7 Don’t be misled—you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.

Q5-  You will always harvest what you plant because its a law. Knowing this, why is it so important to use a lot of wisdom in the decisions we make?

Law #3 - The amount we plant will determine the amount we get back. 

Luke 6:38 NLT Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.

Q6 - Basic life principle: If we want more, put in more. Are you satisfied with all that you're getting out of life right now? 

Q7 - Based on this law, you can determine what your harvest will look like now. Can you predict what your harvest will look like in the future? What are you expecting?

Declaration:

I declare that I will see more in my future! I declare that I will walk in the laws to produce a harvest. I declare that I will plant new seed, I will plant good seed, and I will plant more seed. In Jesus Name!

Application:

This week, keep track of 2 lists: the seed you're planting and the harvest ou're receiving. Take a look at them and determine what adjustments you would need to make to see a batter harvest in your life.
