Healthy Soil! Seed And You!

Where you are planted determines how healthy your spirit man is. In whatever location be assured though, the transforming power of the Holy Spirit can work, and will work in any and every situation to bring about a transformation, a fruitfulness that bears fruits.

Mark 4: 3-19 The sower went out to sow seeds, where he planted the seed determines the harvest. Some seeds died, some grew and were choked, and some grew and bore fruits.

Where are you planted? Are you growing spiritually? Are you being transformed? Do you sometimes look back in retrospect and say wow, I have come a long way? Are you really comfortable where you are? If Christ should call on you today, are you sure you have employed all He deposited in you for His glory and that of humanity? These are questions anyone that is heaven focused should be asking. The scriptures also enjoined us to examine ourselves – 2 Corinthians 13:

You do not have to change location friends, what you need to do is to engage the supernatural to affect and effect a change where ever you are. The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof – Psalms 24:1

Isaac sowed in the time of famine, in the land of famine and yet reaped a hundredfold because the Lord blessed him. Genesis 26:1,12 This is divine intervention.

The Lord still rules in the affairs of man friends. Daniel 4:17 “‘The decision is announced by messengers, the holy ones declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the Most High is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people.’

Just this last week, in a mall, a young man sat in an open space with others. His heart was heavy because of some event in his life. Then a person walked up to where he was seated, looking at everyone siting and stretched out his hands to this young man with an envelope. The envelope was folded and something was written on it.

To summarize, the words written says the recipient is blessed, that God has seen the heaviness of his heart and have sent this to make him smile, and that he is highly favored. On opening to see what was inside, it contained money, cash, I mean in a mall, in a “lowly” area of Town. God still send angels on errands friends. When he looked up from the envelope, this person was gone. How did God know? You mean God knows? And cares enough to send help? And in the most unlikely places and maybe, even vessels? Who was this person? An angel I believe!

Friends, wherever you are is the very place the Lord want you to be. Do not let anyone, anything, any situation nor circumstances push you out of that very space. Engage the supernatural!

The barren – unfruitful womb received life, the dead in the grave came out alive, dead bones became an exceedingly great army! Do not waver in your faith for God is able to even make that barren land fruitful and you will eat the fruit thereof! This is a guarantee only if you engage the supernatural. You are bound to take hold of all that is yours in this very land! Be fruitful!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Spiritual Alertness – Communion with God and Man.

Judges 18:7-10 and 27-28

Wake up my soul, reach out to your maker!

Wake up my soul, reach out to your maker!

So the five men left and came to Laish, where they saw that the people were living in safety, like the Sidonians, at peace and secure. And since their land lacked nothing, they were prosperous. Also, they lived a long way from the Sidonian and had no relationship with anyone else.

8 When they returned to Zorah and Eshtaol, their fellow Danites asked them, “How did you find things?”

9 They answered, “Come on, let’s attack them! We have seen the land, and it is very good. Aren’t you going to do something? Don’t hesitate to go there and take it over. 10 When you get there, you will find an unsuspecting people and a spacious land that God has put into your hands, a land that lacks nothing whatever”………………..

26 So the Danites went their way, and Micah, seeing that they were too strong for him, turned around and went back home.

27 Then they took what Micah had made, and his priest, and went on to Laish, against a people at peace and secure. They attacked them with the sword and burned down their city. 28 There was no one to rescue them because they lived a long way from Sidonite and had no relationship with anyone else. The city was in a valley near Beth Rehob.

The Danites rebuilt the city and settled there. 29 They named it Dan after their ancestor Dan, who was born to Israel—though the city used to be called Laish. 30 There the Danites set up for themselves the idol, and Jonathan son of Gershom, the son of Moses, and his sons were priests for the tribe of Dan until the time of the captivity of the land. 31 They continued to use the idol Micah had made, all the time the house of God was in Shiloh.

The Church, the body of Christ have been living in safety, at peace and secure. We have been dull of hearing, insensitive to the times we are in like the people of Laish. We are not playing defense, nor attack. The Church is complacent, safely playing Church, when we should be in the attack mode, to uproot and to destroy every works of wickedness around us.

The Holy Spirit is not having its expression in our midst as He should because of the state of our hearts, the temperature of our gathering. Unlike times gone by, this generation have been laid back, living in so called peace and prosperity without so much a mention of miracles recorded in the Scriptures. There is evil all around us pointing to woes unleashed by the wicked one. Christians are been persecuted at home and abroad, there is chaos all over the world, no continent and countries without its share of tumult. The world and all its woes is gradually creeping in to pollute the Church.

So many are in a cocoon of ignorance and are not even aware of the spiritual famine all around. The state of our spirituality is at best lukewarm and we know it not. May the Holy Spirit not leave us, may we not grieve Him to the point of leaving us. Iron sharpens iron,  however some have kept away from all, ignorant of the treasure embedded in maintaining contact with one another and the Holy Spirit. Others have embraced all and are lost to the world. There is fear of rejection, of been taken advantage of or sheer deception but none can compare to the immerse positive outcome of right communion at the feet of the Most High God.

Now is the time for the Church as a body and individuals to set aside every encumbrance and arise and shine, to let the light of God shine through us to the dark places in the world, bringing salvation to sinners, hope to the hopeless, joy to the heartbroken, and prepare the way for the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, to whom be glory, honor and adoration world without end. Amen
