How God's Pattern Increases Your Harvest

2 Tim. 1:13 Hold fast the pattern of sound words which you have heard from me, in faith and love which are in Christ Jesus. 14 That good thing which was committed to you, keep by the Holy Spirit who dwells in us.

God operates according to his Word. He provides us with a firm foundation and a pattern or plan for life and success. The Greek word for "pattern" is the word "typos." The word means: "A figure or words formed by a blow or impression. A teaching which embodies the sum and substance of faith."

When you discover God's pattern from His Word and through instruction from  the Word, the Holy Spirit imprints your heart and mind. You come to a strong, stable, and successful place in life.

Major patterns which need to be "impressed" into us include:

Faith/Beliefs
Giving/Receiving
Prayer/Worship
Authority/Accountability
Serving/Ministry
Holiness/Sanctification
Evangelism/Social Action

Discover your unique purpose and pattern for life. Follow instructions, then watch your harvest increase!

Lev. 19:23 (NLT)  “When you enter the land and plant fruit trees, leave the fruit unharvested for the first three years and consider it forbidden. Do not eat it. 24 In the fourth year the entire crop must be consecrated to the Lord as a celebration of praise. 25 Finally, in the fifth year you may eat the fruit. If you follow this pattern, your harvest will increase. I am the Lord your God.
