Out of your heart are the issues of life, both good and bad. Keep you heart safe with all diligence. Guard it. Pray God’s protection over your heart. (Proverbs 4:23)
Lord, out of the desires of our hearts seeds are conceived. With our mouths we sow both good seed and bad. From within our hearts, by faith, we bless what we have sown.
If we sow bad seed and bless it with bitter water, we will reap a harvest of disappointment. If we envision evil and sow seeds of corruption, we will bring forth death, rotten fruit, and decay. (James 1:15)
May it not be so, Lord. We ask you to remove all imperfect seeds. May only your seeds of life live within our hearts. We confess right now, right here, that you have sown good seed in our hearts and will continue to sow seeds for tomorrow and the days to come.
My heart is rich, fertile soil. I declare that I am careful to sow only what is pure, good, and honors you. I will know the seeds sown in my heart by the fruit that tumbles off my lips.
I have and will continue to sow abundance in my heart. I have and will continue to speak life to my books—each and every one.
Lord, you ask, “What is it you want?” I see a harvest ripe with good sales, good reviews, and readers whose lives are changed by the words you place within my heart. I sow your words. I speak your words. I reap a harvest from your words and expect abundance to be my reward.
Amen and amen.
