2 Samuel 17:1-29; John 19:23-42; Psalm 119:129-152; Proverbs 16:12-13

If you did not sow it, you will not reap it! This is a profound truth by which you should live your life. David had taken great pains to ensure that he never disrespected Saul as King. He preserved the King’s dignity even when King Saul was trying to kill him.

Now, David was faced with his own son who sought to kill him and take the throne. If you are not aware of this simple spiritual law, you would be concerned for David. However, God is clear: “Don’t be misled– you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.” (Galatians 6:7)

You may be facing a situation where it looks unfair and you are reaping something that you did not sow. It is impossible! If you never sowed it, then it cannot happen to you. And, if you are experiencing something contrary to what you have sowed, then know it’s not over. This is God’s justice! If you have sowed things for which you are not proud and do not want to reap, repent to God (and apologize to others if necessary) and cancel out that harvest and begin to sow the seeds you want to reap. It is a law that cannot be broken!
