You can set a fire to destroy a forest or set a fire with your tongue or to burn a holy fire, planting seeds that harvest someone’s spirit to be zealous and passionate for God.
You can sow discord or you can sow peace.
What are the seeds you have been planting?
Let the words of our mouth plant seeds that exhort, give peace, joy, love, and understanding. Come harvest time, Let us step back like our father and see that our work and our creation IS GOOD!
Let us join together about being intentional about the way we think, having an eternal focus and a filter through the heart of Jesus.
The harvest you reap reveals the seed that was planted (sown). If you plant the corrupt seeds of self-life into this natural realm, you can expect to experience a harvest of corruption. If you plant the good seeds of Spirit-life you will reap the beautiful fruits that grow from the everlasting life of the Spirit.
“The harvest you reap reveals the seed that was planted. If you plant the corrupt seeds of self – life into this natural realm, you can expect to experience a harvest of corruption. If you plant the good seedsof Spirit-life you will reap the beautiful fruits that grow from the everlasting life of the Spirit.”-Galatians 6:8 TPT
God loves when we follow the plan he has for us, especially since he knows what’s perfect. He loves when we earnestly seek to do his will. He “delights” in our every step. He is well pleased.
There have been times where I have had to make a BIG decision. I prayed and got impatient, later realizing I had made a mistake. I still thought that it was God’s will. However, later I realized I had made a mistake that caused me to stumble. I did not wait long enough for him to bring clarity. Yet we see, that even when we stumble there is abundant grace and mercy. He is ready and willing to lift us up when we stumble.
Do you remember when you tried to ride a bike for the first time? Your parents let you try without training wheels? If you were like me, you ate the gravel. I mean, I stumbled hard. I was a bloody, bruised, beat up, wanted to give up kind of mess. Just as my earthly Father saw what had happened and helped me up, God will lift you up when you stumble. He is much better than your earthly father. He is your cheerleader. He was delighted you wanted to please him! He lifts you and says, here my child try this.
God sees the desire in your heart to do his will and live out his plan for your life and that pleases him. He is delighted you a pursuing to be obedient. Even if you stumble, he is there to lift you up. He is proud of you! So dust the gravel off and keep riding.
When we are hurt we have a choice.
We have the choice to hold onto unforgiveness and let the bitterness fester. We can let it fester into anger and later allowing it to rot all of our fruit. ▪️Or▪️
We can choose to forgive.
We can choose to give grace as freely as it is given to us.
We all have battles people know nothing about.
We are all learning to love better together.
Forgive others and love like you have never been hurt.
