If you're not harvesting what you want out of life with genuine regularity, then re-evaluate your seed, water, light, and the presence of weeds in the attitudes and consistency department. Mark 4 again, as well as the Corinthian letters come to mind along these lines. God absolutely always gives the increase. There's never a question mark about Him doing His part. To those who, by patient continuance in doing good, are seeking for glory, honor, and immortality, to them He gives a harvest of the knowledge of God, of His Son Jesus Christ, and all of these material necessities of life are added to you, abundantly, if I may combine Romans 2, John 17, Matthew 6, and 2Corinthians 9.
When the harvest comes, then you've got to put in the sickle. And a lot of people are maiming themselves in the thanksgiving department because they're not practicing thanks-giving until they're rooted, built up, and established in the High Priestly ministry of Christ Jesus, according to Colossians 2:6-7. If you're weary in the thanksgiving department, then you're aborting your harvest 'cause Mark 4 with it's New Testament counterparts says that when offense or misunderstanding enters in and is entertained then Satan steals the Word that was sown. When you continue to allow that, then you never experience the sanctification in your spirit, soul, and body that 1Thessalonians 5:23 promises through which God brings you out of your need and into the harvest of your seed. As Galatians 6 says, you can't be weary in well doing 'cause as 1Corinthians 15 closes with, your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
And yes, you must keep every care cast upon Him, according to 1Peter 5:6-7, but you're called to inherit the blessing, according to 1Peter 3:10-13, and you must get pregnant on thanksgiving. Get absolutely drunk on thanking God for all that you have in Christ Jesus, according to Colossians 2:6-7 and Ephesians 5:17-20. If you're not pregnant on thanksgiving, then you're going to get pregnant with discouragement. And if you get pregnant on discouragement, then Satan will have succeeded in making you abort the Word of God from your heart and your consciousness. That's how people fail on a daily basis to receive the thousandfold blessing and beyond (Deuteronomy 1:11; Isaiah 61:6; Jeremiah 31:27-28; Hebrews 8:6). God confirms pregnant thanksgiving with signs following, just as Satan confirms pregnant discouragement with sin and death. Never stop battling with the Sword of your thanksgiving. Reclaim your thankful side and cast the devil out once and for all.
