I love this poem by Charles Capps:
When the seed is sown in the earth, before the sun can
rise and set, the seed has demanded that your need
be met. The heart will respond without regret, but the
process has only begun, and it is not revealed yet. But
have confidence and respect for the seed, for it has
given its life for what you need. It will work night and
day giving substance to what you say. It will assemble
the information piece by piece and know the exact
time for its release. So set a watch on what you speak
and how you pray, for a time of release comes every
day. Take heed to the words that God has spoken and
obey, for you see the fruit is being fashioned each day.
The process continues until the harvest is perfected in
this very way, for day after day the seed demands and
the earth does obey, but be careful not to tamper with
the seed, for if you do, you may come up with a weed.
But if you encourage it with the water of the Word, it
will supply your every need.
Remember – your words are the seed and the earth is your heart
