Faith has to be planted in order for it to grow.
(Blog post inspired by the wednesday Tele-class teaching of Pastor Juanita Gibbs)
In part 2 of Tele-class this wednesday night she continued on about the word of God being seeds. Those seeds when planted can produce a manifestation over time.
She mentioned there is a seed time, a waiting time, and a harvest time. It is in the seed time we plant the truth of the word of God. To break open the seed for it to begin to establish a root system we must continue to cultivate the seed with the word. The word of God is the incorruptable seed as it proclaims.
In the waiting time character is grown, faith grows, trust grows as it is all hinged off the fact that God is not a God of whom should lie. He sent out His word to fulfill a purpose and He will not see that word return void. By remaining firm and confident in who God is my at the harvest we can behold.
Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
Hebrews 11:11 KJV
Have you had a dream, a promise, a hope go unfulfilled in God. Resurrect that dream and cultivate it in truth. Sara was given strength to conceive seed. God can strengthen us to receive spiritual seed and deliver us into promise. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.
Our hope comes from the Lord!
Our strength is from the Lord!
Our love is from the Lord!
Our grace & mercy is from the Lord!
The word of God is powerful when spoken in faith it produces life. The soil of our hearts has to be regenerated to be able to take on the good. I have gone through a time of removing negativity, doubt, and fear.
Im better than I was in it, more is to he done. But, I pray there is enough good soil in my soul to take the good seeds of the word that were planted in faith and now to cultivate them until harvest time comes.
As Pastor told us we are the farmers. It is up to me to plant and cultivate the seeds planted. I am anticipating great things to come from the work that has been done in me.
Im an imperfect woman working to better herself in the faith and in womanhood. God has a plan and purpose for me to fulfill and I want to be the best version of me fulfilling that call on my life.
