The seed

Posted on June 17, 2019 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (1)
Everything starts with a seed. One of my favorite scriptures says, ???There is a time for everything, a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot??? (Ecclesiastes 3:1-2, NIV). For a seed to produce it must be planted. Without seeds, there would be no plants, no us and the world would be barren. Without a planted seed there is an inability to support life that surrounds us. My father was a man who believed in planting a garden. Every year he and our neighbor would prepare to till the ground and discuss what they were planting. They never tilled the ground at the same time, neither did they plant at the same time. When I asked my father why, he told they planted different things in their gardens. He explained certain foods had to be planted in certain temperatures and times. He told me planting too early and late, or if the soil was not right it would affect the seeds ability to produce. He always grew his berries and fruits in a different space than his vegetables. I noticed they planted some of the same seeds, but they often produced differently. Some seeds grew faster, some greens were darker in color, some corn was smaller than others and some strawberries were sweeter than others. But they all served a purpose! For you to really understand who you are and who God is, it is imperative you understand the circumstances serves as the ground the seed is planted in. Nothing plants itself, it must be planted by something or someone greater than itself. It doesn???t matter if you were born of a planned pregnancy, rape, molestation, fornication, adultery, one-night stand, adopted, one parent, abandoned, mother and father on drugs, drunk, poverty or prosperity. It???s doesn???t matter what the circumstance were, it matters that God is the one who does the planting. God never does anything by accident or chance. He is a purposeful God who knew you before he formed you and has promised an expected end. God not only formed you but he planted you at a pacific time, place, a pacific race and gender that holds a certain intelligence, ability and gifts. You were not chosen by yourself and maybe you disagree with the place, situations, time and they nature of garden He has destined for you but know the same God who planted the seed has destined a harvest. God knew what the seed would yield in this soil and He knew what he envisioned to grow. God is so tactical that he equipped every seed with a divine nature, that regardless of its size or circumstances, rather they are favorable or unfavorable, the seed contains food within itself to sustain it while being formed and growing roots. He knew that in this dark, smelling, bug infested, dry dirt would not stop what he has purposed for the seed. So, he planted you right where you are or were. Some of the best seeds grown in the worst soil and some of the best soil is fertilized with manure. A seed incubated in adversity will grow and bring forth a harvest. In order for the seed to experience light it must first be planted in darkness. It must endure the harsh conditions of the soils of life. If the seed has light, food and water it will survive. As long as the plant grows and needs more water, the roots will grow longer and stretch as far as it needs to obtain the necessary water in the soil. Sometimes your drought forces your roots to stretch! There are times in life when you may feel like this is not working. But all things work together for your good. The enemy just wants you to despise where God has planted you. He knows that if he can get you to despise where God has planted you, if he can get you to despise how God has planted you, it is nothing less than despising the God who planted you. The enemy wants you to bring railing accusations that say God you made a mistake. If you had done this I would have not experienced that! The enemy wants you to see men as trees, the enemy wants you to have a distorted view of your seed. The whole design is cause you desire to become something other than the plan of God. We have many people who desire to be something other than what God plan and purpose for them to be. When you go to the store and buy seeds for a watermelon, you do not expect to plant them and they give you oranges. Can you imagine you have planted watermelon seeds and you get oranges? You would be upset, disappointed and demanding a refund. The bible tells us that Christ died for us despite the fact we were sinners. That means while we were a seed in the packet, unfruitful, unplanted and a liability, Christ was willing to purchase us. He knew after he planted us, we would germinate and grow into what he purposed prior to purchase. God is decisive in everything, from the beginning to the end. God is the one who created the seed so he knew what it would become. God shined his light of mercy on us to ensure we grew. While we were in a dry place he watered us with his well of grace. He kept the weeds of negativity form overtaking the gardens with his love. He protects the seed from the harsh conditions of its environment of deprivation, rape, molestation, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, whoredom, lying, stealing, backbiting, murder, drugs, alcohol, smoking, divorce, disappointment, ridicule, abandonment, frustration, un-forgiveness, anger, death and devastations. He ensured we were planted accordingly and stands up over the word (seed), which is you and me to ensure it would perform what he sent out for it to do. He personally tended to His Garden, which is us! What you see now is nothing compared to what you shall be. In the small, dark, confined and dirty soil of life, Gods beauty of purpose is hidden. You are a divine appointment of God waiting to break forth! You will break forth! You are life to a dying world, colors in the portrait that enhance the drawings of life. You are the illumination of light to a dark world. You are a beautiful bloom beauty that blooms in brokenness. You are purpose, placement and value that produces a Garden for God!

What does it mean to be Made Whole

Posted on January 3, 2018 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)

     What do you think of when someone says wholeness?  Many of us shift our focus to matters  of health, sickness, injury or death.  Wholeness, however is so much more than that. Wholeness correlates to us body, soul and spirit.  It is living in such a way that all facets and aspects of our lives are interrelated in a health-giving, sound and resilient way. 

     God wants us to be whole!  Even in our breaking he restores us to a whole state.  The Book of 1st Thessalonians, chapter 5 verse 3, shows the Apostle Paul prayed "May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" 

     Gods has purposed for us to be Whole, never fragmented or diminished! John 1:12 But to all who did recieve him, believed on his name, he gave them the right to become children of God. Isaiah 61:1-3 The spirit of the Soveregin Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release darkness from prisoners. 2. To proclaim the year of the LORD's Favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who greive in Zion- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning and a garment of praise instead of the spirit of despair.  They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for display of his splendor. 

     Did you know that God wants to show you off!  Jesus came to do a work in you and then put you on display for all the world to see.  You are america's next top model!

JESUS IS SPEAKING TO YOUR BROKNESS AND HE HAS COME TO MAKE YOU WHOLE!

  • The broken hearted
  • The captives
  • Those in dark places
  • Prisioner of sin and alike
  • Mourning and grieving
  • Poor
  • Blind
  • Oppressed

     You may find yourself in one of these places, Physically, Emotionally, Mentally and or Spriutally, but Christ says that he has come to change that.  The scripture says He will take our unrighteousness and make us solid oaks of righteousness and we would be a planting of the Lord and display His splendor.  It is the anointing that destorys the yolks and he is the Anointed One and He can change you, heal you and deliver you.  He is able to transform you and take your heavy heart and fill it will joy. 

     Jesus is willing and ready to make us whole!  If you want to be whole cry out to Him, "Lord, make me whole!" 



BE MADE WHOLE

Posted on July 8, 2017 at 9:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I would like to share with you a recent thought that the Lord brought by on what it means to be made whole. First of all, I would like to define the word “whole”. Some definitions from the dictionary are: free of wound or injury (unhurt), recovered from a wound or injury (restored), free of defect or impairment, having all of its proper parts (complete). A synonym for whole is “perfect”. If I could physically demonstrate to you something that is not whole, I would present to you a vase that has been shattered into many pieces or perhaps a puzzle that is missing one piece. Both of these examples have no value or use because they are broken or incomplete. People are just like this. All of us are incomplete and some of us are like the vase. Our lives have been torn into many pieces by sickness, death, trauma, depression, violence, addictions, or some other great trouble. But there is a remedy, a balm in Gilead that can be found. His name is Jesus. Every human person is incomplete without Jesus in their life. No matter if everything in life has been good for you; there is still an empty void in your life. The reason is that you were created to fellowship with God but when sin entered into the heart of man, he was separated from God. The only way man can be reconciled back to God is through God’s Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus paid the sin debt for mankind on the cross of Calvary. He made a way that man can be restored or made “whole”. I have heard so many testimonies over the years from Christians that talk of how different their lives were after they accepted Jesus Christ. I have heard some say that the sun shone brighter, the grass was greener, and their heart was full of love instead of hatred. Some just said they felt a deep settled peace enter their heart. Here are some scriptures that demonstrate the miracle of being made whole by Jesus:


Matthew 9:22

 

“But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.”

Matthew 14:36

 

“And besought him that they might only touch the hem of his garment; and as many as touched were made perfectly whole.”

 

Luke 8:48

 

“And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.”

 

Please notice some important truths about being made whole. When God saves your soul, you are made whole that very instant, that very hour. God’s salvation is a gift. You don’t have to do something more or different. God’s salvation is given to you freely and fully the moment you accept Jesus as your Savior. There is spiritually growth that can be had after you are saved but you are made “whole” the moment that God saves your soul.

 

When God saves your soul, the salvation he gives you is “perfect”. It is not of man’s righteousness that you are saved but of the righteousness of Jesus. This is why salvation is eternal. It is not dependent on man and his goodness or his works but it is provided by the supreme sacrifice that Jesus made on Calvary. What God does, he does well. The scripture didn’t say that these people were just partially made whole and that it would only be good for so many days or months. It said they were made perfectly whole.

 

The next scripture I want to read is John 5:6: “When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole?”

 

This is the question I want to ask you today? Have you been made whole? If not, do you want to be made whole? Like the crippled man in this scripture, have you been on life’s journey a long time but your life is empty and void? Then now is the time for you to call on Jesus and ask him to make your life whole. And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked.
