Heart of Faith πŸ’•πŸŒ±

What is planted on the inside is what grows!

At the heart of who we are as people, those core things that we are and walk in daily are seeds we spread in our every day life to ourself and to the environment around us.

To spread good we have to alter that which we are at the core of us. For me that has been removing what I can of negativity, doubt, fear, worry, anxiety, depression.

It will be a life long journey to do so, but I have been able with the coaching of my Pastor Juanita Gibbs been able to tackle a layer of it. Which I am eternally greatful for.

Without her love, guidance, acceptance and leadership in my life I am not sure where I would be. I know for sure without her I wouldn’t be blogging. These are my ways to spread good seeds out into the world.

I will establish your seed forever And build up your throne to all generations.” Selah.
Psalms 89:4 NASB

I want to continue to change me at the heart of me to carry good seeds of faith into the world. I want it to be prevalent in my relationships, in my writings and those I may only encounter breifly.

What I carry of faith inside of me will manifest around me, just as the negativity has manifest just in the opposite way. To continue to change I must make sure I am in continual submission to His word and this too will take work and be a life long journey.

But in time the consistent work of the beginning will become my first nature, over time, as in the beginning it is hard work and a 2nd nature initially as I had leaned too much on the old pattern/way of being.

We are seed carriers it is up to us to grow good seed to share that good seed around us. Just as any fruit bears seed if it came from a not so good string it may not last long, but if the fruit is nurtured and cared for and has a good start then it can produce mass goodness and be a long lasting seed bearing fruit.

That is what we are to be an everlasting/evergreen tree bearing fruit in season and out of season. That thus bores more fruit as the seeds inside fall to new ground and grow.

A heart and core center of good faith seeds can change your life and generations.

Faith Grows Pt 1

Water the seeds that were planted!

The seed of faith as that measure planted within us is everlasting faith. It is us that has to choose to use it or let is sit there undeveloped.

His word proclaims there is one faith! This means that His word is the central component of that one faith. He has a set up establishment in which that one faith is built in each individual.

He has given us the five fold ministry for a purpose. It is for the building up and encouraging of the saints and to also win soul into the kingdom.

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
Ephesians 4:11 KJV

These chosen vessels are surrendered and yielded to the Lord to be the earthen mouth piece for His glory. God works by His spirit and he needs a vessel in the earth to do that work and that is those of the five fold and other elect vessels.

I am so thankful for the leaders God has placed in my life, for it is by them that I have been able to grow in areas. This has helped me to get to a place of getting established in my faith better than I have been in the past.

Abraham planted a tamarisk tree at Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the Lord , the Everlasting God.
Genesis 21:33 NASB

To grow better I have to be submitted to the leadership before me. I have to do the work and be in the word consistently and pray and worship and all that is involved with building my relationship with God.

This is the only way my faith can and will grow is becoming a doer of the word that my Pastor Juanita Gibbs encourages us to be. This exercises the faith measure. Even though I may fail I have to learn from the mistake and press on to grow.

The greatest way to have faith or any fruit grow in our life is under pressure as they reveal weaknesses where God needs to come into those places to be strong for us.

Its up to us individually to cause our faith to grow or not to grow the choice is ultimatley ours in the long run!

Faith Planted

Our old nature has to die to produce goodness!

When faith is planted inside our spirit and we begin to attend church regularly, we read and study the word on our own something begins to happen.

That faith begins to crack open inside us and push out that which is not of God. Its in the exercising of that measure that I blogged on yesterday. Becoming a doer of the word, by applying it and walking it out.

My Pastor Juanita Gibbs often reminds us that we must not only be a hearer of the word but also a doer. Hearing builds faith within us, as doing the word helps change us.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. John 12:24 KJV

Its in that doing and hearing when change comes that the good fruit can begin to come forth. Where I once was selfish, stingy, impatient, and prideful begin to shed. Now love, peace, patience, meekness can grow.

Its a lifetime of work to keep fruit growing as there are always places revealed in me that they can grow and improve in. But faith had to come in to cause the old to die out. When the seed of faith planted and cracked open it was on me to nourish it and watch my faith grow.

I’m not quite where I would like to be in it, but with my Pastors help andthe help of the Lord by His word I’m not where I was. I am determined to keep taking steps to grow my faith and produce the goodness of God in my life.

Faith Seed

Faith is planted within us at Salvation!

There were many times my lips utterred the phrase “I don’t have enough faith” in some aspect of reality that was going on in my life at the time.

But that statement I made and kept making was not in line with the word of God.

…as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

Romans 12:3 NASB

What I suffered and still in some places is unbelief. I have faith as its been supplied, but I had unbelief that God could and would come through.

Thus creating a life that I have of minimal manifestation of Gods goodness in my life. He is good all the time yes, but He won’t support unbelief.

The measure of faith we have all been given is a seed within us. We have to exercise and use that faith to make it grow. Without it growing we won’t see much faith works come to pass.

My Pastor Juanita Gibbs often reinforces the fact that Faith without works is dead. My works is the fact I have to exercise faith to work out the unbelief and just trust God.

That is the only way the seed of faith in me is going to be able to grow is by cultivating that seed with proper nourishment from the word and allowing the spirit the aide in developement of it.

We all have a measure of faith. May God help our unbelief and trust Him at His word!

Faith Grows

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.
