Have you ever noticed that it seems just when you have extra money to do something you've been believing to do, suddenly all these unexpected needs arise?

The electric bill is higher than usual - more money! The car needs to be repaired - more money! The kids need new clothes - more money! All these needs suddenly seem to come up out of nowhere and eventually consume all of your money. So what do you end up giving to God? Nothing. It was all consumed.

That's the way Satan operates. He knows when you have extra money in your possession so he creates all these little obstacles to leave you with nothing left for God.

There is something that you possess that Satan's after more than anything else in your life and that's seed. If he cannot get your seed, then he cannot defeat you. If he can get your seed, then he limits you.

When I first came to the Lord in 1969, my wife, Carolyn, and I were just two little kids from Shreveport, Louisiana, who knew we had the call of God on our lives. We had a lot of zeal. We were so excited about the things of God. We could hardly wait to get out in the middle of what God wanted us to do, but we didn't have anything to do it with. The car was shot. I didn't have a suit. I had uniforms that had "Jerry's Paint and Body Shop" written across the front. You can't preach in Jerry's Paint and Body Shop uniforms. But it didn't make any difference because there wasn't a church that wanted to hear me anyway.

God began to teach me in the very early stages of our Christianity that I may not always have what I need at the moment, but I am never without the seed that will produce it.

You may not have everything you need right now, but I can promise you, you do have in your possession, at this very moment, the seed that will produce what you need. "Now he that ministers seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness" (2 Cor. 9:10).

If there's one thing that God has provided for you and always will, it's seed. And if you learn to plant it properly, then He will multiply your seed sown, and He will also multiply your resources for sowing.

The most important thing which you possess that Satan is after is your seed. He wants your seed consumed before it can get into God's hands. He wants your seed devoured before you can give it to God. He wants you to spend all your seed. He wants you to waste all your seed. He wants you to throw away your seed. Seed is what makes you dangerous to him.

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.
