You're Not Broke You Have A Seed!

Highlights from the Book: You're Not Broke You Have A Seed!



I had this book on my shelf, read it in 2007 without much thought about it. Made a few notes, highlighted some things. Lately I have really struggled with taking my life vision and ministry work to a new level... I'm just not satisfied working at a "J.O.B." anymore. I got too lazy and willing to let that be enough. I tried several jobs. But now God is showing me that although he may continue to use the J.O.B. for now, it's not the end all and I need to remember that. I guess I let that slip somewhere along the way. Ultimately God wants to use the job as a place to obtain seed, not the place to meet your need. GOD is your provider, not your job. When the job becomes your provider you are tempted to do or say things that are not totally in line with God's Word to "perform". Pressure mounts to say something a certain way to get a sale, when that isn't the full and honest truth. Something simple, like having a good idea and personalizing it with a story that didn't actually happen, just to get the point across. That may be common in the sales world, but it is a LIE! You must be cautious not to jump from example of what could be to saying it had been.

So here are some things that stood out to me from the book. Some are notes I made for myself and some are direct quotes from the book.
"Therefore, God protects His children from money until we understand that we are not to be the servant of money; rather, money is to be our servant... We have to let the Holy Ghost escort us into the wealth of God."
"I'm not broke; I have a seed!"
"To some people seed-time is a sad time when it should be a shouting time. You can sow your way out, but God is not going to let you work your way out by jobs. If you work your way out, you will not have the grace you need to maintain your walk with God." 
 "God is ministering to you so do not take it lightly. The Holy Spirit is producing some things in your life, and when He is finished, even your own family will not know you." Notated and confirmed 02/10/2012 and 07/16/2007"
 "The Lord told Isaac, 'I am going to do this for you, and you don't have to leave this land to prosper.' Nor do we have to leave our physical location; the only thing we have to do is learn how to operate properly in the Spirit... You have to move in revelation, not in position, and the rest will take care of itself."
"A famine is when you may have a good job, but you're barely keeping up with your bills."
"Who is a sower? A sower is one who is operating under stewardship. What I have is not really mind. I am in management for Someone Else, and whatever He tells me to do with whatever I have I am willing to do it."
 "When I say 'eating your seed' I am talking about buying something to appease the prosperity that is in you. However, you have to sow your way to the prosperity that belongs to you."
"The job is not God's way. The job is not to make a living, it is to get seed so you can sow for a living. Some say, 'If I can only get a good job. The job I have now is not a good job. The pay isn't enough'"
 "When you got on God's system properly, you don't need a budget. A budget is merely to stop you from overspending, but when you get into the system (God's System) you can't overspend. Now until you get out of the system (The Worlds System), you will have to budget yourself... You can plant a financial seed but if you let words come out the wrong way, you will uproot the seed wit the words of your mouth."
Words are your primary seed. Money just activates your words. So does anythings you sow (Time, Talent, and Treasures are all seed). Remember, Money is not Good or Bad, it only amplifies and expresses the heart.

"Expectation that cannot be killed is expectation that cannot be denied. You have to have expectation!... Once you have planted the seed, go to sleep. "Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on the Thee" Isaiah 26:3) "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5) Build up your expectation and go to sleep. In other words, plant your seed, then go about your Father's business, praising the Lord (For you are calling it down NOW not when you see it)


Referring to Luke 5:6

The ship did not run over and the net did not break until they obeyed...

Kenneth Copeland has also said that: "the only reason the net broke is because Peter threw out one net, the old worn out one, because he'd just cleaned all his good nets. He was just trying to humor the preacher, he wasn't expecting anything to happen."

It's comforting to know that God isn't trying to keep His blessing from us, but he's trying to get us to do the least bit to move toward Him so that he can legally get it to us! Peter's latter catch when Jesus told him to put out nets after His Resurrection was a REAL harvest!

Isaiah 55:10-11 rain gives seed which gives more seed and bread! The Word gives seed and bread!

My check is not my source. You have to come to that conclusion, if not, when famine comes, you will be just like other people... So, as you are reading this, God is aiming to make you switch masters.
The key to operating God's Law and to avoid frustration and the temptation to quit is to understand that with God there is an appointed time and due season for everything. 
Whatever you have now, whatever He says to you to do with it, do it, and you will jump systems. 


1 Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice always

The key to standing tall between "I believe" and "There it is" is Rejoice always! Rejoice means to brighten up, spin around, and leap! Don't be looking at bills all day long. Look at the Bible, look at what God has Promised! 
Keys to receiving your Due Season:

  1. Honor the Lord
  2. Speak to your seed
  3. Speak to your mountain (Debt, Lack, Etc)
  4. Be Aggressive
Remember this:

We Must disconnect the DO from the GET. 

Your Job is NOT your source. 

As long as your job is your source, God can't be. He won't take second place. Make up in your mind right now, that your JOB is a place God has brought you to get seed and bread as you switch systems. In God's system you are always called to "DO" things, because we find our greatest enjoyment in providing for others. Your DOING is for the benefit of others. 

However your DOING is NOT tied to your RECEIVING. Just because God calls you to be an author, doesn't mean you will make an income from your books/blog/etc. God may ask you to SOW all of that and bring income to you a million other ways. 

You DO because it's your call to DO, don't concern yourself with how you will monetize it. Just do what you do, and allow God to bless you with income beyond your ability to produce. As far as God is concerned He could have you wake up to Gold nuggets on your kitchen floor every morning, like manna in the wilderness. 

He could bring you money and income from many places you've never thought of. He isn't concerned about YOU MAKING ENOUGH. Just DO what He says DO, God will be the one who brings you the income and resources. 


That is the end of my notes on the book! I suggest you buy a copy yourself and keep it in your library. It was a good faith stretcher.

Book Review: Name of the Wind

So a while back, I was walking through Auntie's Bookstore, in Spokane, WA. I've read pretty much everything ever written by Ted Dekker, Bill Myers, CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and many others.

I told her I like the Fantasy & Science Fiction genres, and I was looking for a new author.

"I have just the one," she said. "Follow me." She came out from behind the counter and we meandered up and down a few aisles. "Here it is," She turned and handed me this book:



"Hm. I've never heard of him," I replied.

"He's Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Chronicles of Narnia all wrapped up into one amazing story," she was quite excited. "You'll love it!"

The woman handed me a few others to consider and then went about her duties. I took pictures but didn't have any money to spend that day.

Later, because I'd mentioned it, my boss bought it for my birthday.

I just finished all 713 pages, and I am AMAZED!

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

Order. Chaos. In Between... The Bible

The Dark Ages were primarily due to religion.  Religious leaders had the audacity to claim that only they could interpret the Word of God for the simple-minded laymen. Even clergy of lower stature couldn't read the bible. This led to the strange fantasies, whimsies, and odd ideas of any number of so-called "Priests". 
Enter Martin Luther, circa 1517 A.D. He had the outrageous claim that all men were saved by Faith, and not deeds required of them by Religious Leaders. How did he get this idea? Reading the bible for himself.
The Reformation directly caused the Enlightenment.
When men were allowed to read the Bible for themselves, instead of being told what to believe by so-called leaders, they found a God of order. Therefore, the Earth created by this God would have order.
This thought led to Newtonian Physics, printed books, engines, light bulbs, Einstein's theory of relativity...
All science, medical advancements, everything you drive, see, eat...

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

White Nose | Scene 3

The Aleve took effect with the help of two breakfast whiskey sours. It had been three days since his tussle in town and he still couldn't sleep, despite the nighttime cocktail.
Beams of light broke through the trees outlining Ash's house, tucked back off of the main road by a mile long rock driveway. One such beam was tanning his pale country face as he rocked on an old wooden chair he'd carved himself. Whittling was one of his most relaxing and profitable talents.
One look in the mirror each summer reminded him that he only retained two colors, pale Irish freckle and redneck red. Ash was careful to avoid too much contact with summer's star.
Dust down the drive revealed the presence of a visitor before the sound of tires on gravel confirmed it. Ash hasn't been visited by more than three people in the eight years he'd been back in town, so he picked up the hunting rifle, just in case.
The scope showed the local sheriff, his friend Dan. He didn't usually com…

Focus... Unfocused

There's a version of my writing that is organized, thoughtful, researched, helpful, even inspired at times... And then there's the other stuff. The other stuff is wild, incoherent, off the cuff, straight from my mind to your eyes, unfiltered, unedited. I've tried to separate these into different sites, combined them again, separated them again.... *sigh*I have too many thoughts, too many opinions, I know too much to ever make any of it make coherent sense on one website.So, here's my newest attempt to make it work... My blog, the one under my name, DarrellWolfe.com, it's for my randomness. This is where I'll post whatever I want, whatever thinking about, randomness.I'll link out to posts at my other sites, be they few or many, and you can find the organized stuff there. Let's see if that helps me keep some semblance of order.Darrell Wolfe Version 1,037



Topos Transitions

Transitions are rough. I've been through many seasons of my life where I had to make a transition. At each and every stage it was tough. There are always things you miss about the last season, things you are hoping for in the next season, and things you can't wait to be rid of in the season you're leaving behind.Whether you are sensing the winds of change blowing you out of your current situation, you are in the middle of the trip, or the winds are at your back and you settling in to your new spot... Remember this word: ToposTopos is a Greek word and it essentially means:Your strategic position of opportunity and influence.Make your Topos count today, wherever you are.Darrell




Credit Building

I just met three people working at Carl's Jr. We had a great talk about income, credit, and demystifying credit. So many people need a financial doctor and don't know it. Or they do know that they need one but don't know how easy it is to have one. I gave them a few tips, my business card for credit, my friend Ben's business card for Insurance and Investments, and told them to come see me so we can get into more details.They didn't realize that someone would be willing to help without having to pay a consulting fee or go or a class.I love helping people. Love it. And as Zig Ziglar said: You can have anything you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want. I don't concern myself with whose going to make me a sale, who I can get something from, etc. If I simply help everyone I can, without regards to my reward for it, the reward will come as a byproduct.It was a great reminder that I'm on the right path.Darrell

About Me
