“You have been born again no of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is through the living and abiding word of God. For, All flesh is like grass, The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of the Lord abides forever. And this is the word which is preached to you.” 1 Peter 1:23-25
In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul tries to help believers comprehend the incomprehensible inheritance they have been given when they were adopted into the family of God! We all have been given so much more than we know what to do with, and unfortunately much of what we have remains locked up in the tower of silos because we don’t understand what it means to be in “him” Until we access our abundant inheritance by faith, it will lie there dormant and asleep, producing no life and no fruit. Lets raid this silos, take those seeds, plant them in fertile soil and reap an extravagant harvest! We must ask God to plant his word into our hearts, and then live it out by faith. The bible declares that faith is a gift, obtained “through hearing and hearing through the word of God” Romans 10;17. We must put ourselves in the position to “hear” Gods word by spending time in Gods word, studying his word by choosing to believe in it and live according to it in the power of the Holy Spirit. When we do, we are planting seeds of righteousness in our hearts that will bring forth a harvest of righteousness .
Let us be encouraged this week that we have the opportunity to plant great seeds and watch them grow into great harvest. When we choose to spend more time with the Lord and grow in his word we will begin to start seeing a harvest! I love the part in the devo where it says ” Until we access our abundant inheritance by faith, it will lie dormant and asleep, producing no fruit and no life.” lets take that step of faith this week and meditated on what he is trying to say to us through his word and believe it, receive it, by faith and wait and see that harvest bloom.
