Some time ago, I was talking to the International Director of our ministry in Africa. We were discussing the battle royal we had gone through in that land. At every step we had to battle corruption and opposition. But God had told us to go into that area and pull down the strongholds of Satan, and that was exactly what we intended to do, troubles or no troubles.

Our loyal workers lived under constant threat, in turmoil and stress, twenty-four hours a day, with never a moment to relax. They were never able to let down their guard for an instant. The warfare they were engaged in was not only spiritual but also natural.

Some people were so opposed to the ministry, they had actually hired assassins to kill the members of our staff. But despite the dangers, obstacles and opposition from both man and Satan, we just kept on planting seeds into that outreach, week after week, month after month.

After nine long months of seeming failure, we finally began to see a return on our investment in those precious African lives.

Now my director tells me that he and his staff can hardly contain their joy because every day brings a new victory over the forces of evil and darkness. All the seed we had been faithfully and consistently planting, suddenly began to grow and produce fruit for the Kingdom of God.

So don't become discouraged and quit sowing. Don't stop planting seed just because you don't see any immediate results.

Don't be like the man who heard that God rewards the tither. He began to tithe faithfully, but when he didn't see any returns on his tithes within three weeks, He concluded that it didn't work and stopped giving.

He lost everything he had sown because he gave up too soon. He expected to harvest as soon as he planted. Don't make that mistake. Keep planting those seeds. You will reap "in due season" (Gal. 6:9).

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
