Planting Seed in the Garden of our Life.
How does your garden grow?
Our lives are similar to a garden. We plant the seed and it grows. Everything in and on the earth started with a seed. We need to plant in proper soil and make sure our gardens are fed with the proper nutrients, sunlight and essential water. We need to be watchmen over our gardens. The weeds, critters and insects will try to edge in and in no time at all they will reek havoc on the growth. If we keep up on our gardens we can be assured of a bountiful harvest. Everything in life that is worthwhile takes action and perseverance. Prayer is a plus and works like miracle grow. Gods miracle grow! This is Gods principle sowing and reaping. Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:31 In the garden of our lives we are continually planting seeds in our thoughts, words and actions.
Everything we do starts with a thought. If our thoughts are lovely, pure, kind and pleasing they will make a difference in our desired harvest. When we think thoughts that are despair, doubt, anger or ugly they make a difference in the harvest that will abound. God gave man a free will to choose what He will think, say and act. If our thoughts are in line with Gods word we can be assured of a bountiful return on the seed, we have planted. Our treasures will come sometimes slowly, sometimes quickly. In due season we will reap what we sow. NO matter if it is good or bad seed, we will get a harvest.
Our thoughts start beautiful gardens.
Loving words nurture loving hearts
Thought, word, action is seed, we plant.
Seeds take root and multiply. A bank robber starts his crime with a thought. He gets a few partners to go in on the crime with him. They take action together. They get caught and one dies in the chase. The others go to prison. The consequences started with the thought. It was fed and it produced a harvest. The bank robbers got no money but time in prison. In the cell block he hears vile and evil words. He sees evil actions. God always goes for the less likely to succeed in the world. I know I was in that flock. He came for me, Praise God. Oh wretched sinner I am. Forgiven and moving forward in Christ, Amen! Jesus wants to rescue the robber. God does not give up on us, He wants none to perish. The robber will have a choice. Will he ask Jesus into his life and repent of sin and be made new or will he keep on and allow more ugly seeds to grow and take over the garden, to death?
When we speak words to our situation, over a situation, or to another they can change the attitude, scenery and outcome. Good or bad will change the scenery. If we stay in the Light of Gods promises and speak His promises over our life our words, with faith can move mountains, out of the way. We need to make sure we have picked the weeds of unforgiveness or sin out of our gardens.They will block the sunlight of the Spirit from the garden. When we make a mistake we can jump back in and take authority. With Jesus we can clean up our garden; repent, rid the weeds and move forward. Jesus helps us to use the weed whacker.
This is good news. if we know Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior we are forgiven our sin. We are made righteous before God. Nothing but the blood of Jesus, Amen? If you do not know Jesus then by your choice you are on your own and live in the world where evil and wicked seed abound. In government, education, church, the wicked seed abounds and multiplies. When tempted by Satan the god of this world bad seed is then planted. Be on the watch. Many have hooked into the bad seed as a way of life; greed, lust, envy, evil, idolatry, sexual immorality, wickedness, witchcraft, deceit, deception. The seed has deep roots and has grown for a very long time. The seed will bring depression, doubt, worry, fear, anxiety, illness, stress anxiety. It can break up families and marriages, bring abuse and much more, ugly. Ugly is not from God. It is from the devil and his demons.
God could and would if He were sought help to clean up the gardens of our lives. (Matthew 6:32) God will not go where not called. God will allow us to wallow in our own choices. With Jesus, the Master Gardener He will help us to hoe and keep our gardens free of impurities. He provides sun, water and life to our gardens. He helps us rid the ugly weeds and ward off the adversaries that come to steal, kill and destroy. We do not have to tend to our gardens, alone. Jesus wants to be in our lives. He gave us His Holy Word to live by. We have a manual called the Bible. Man has tried to devise or change the words or ignore the words to suit their lifestyle. Gods seed is life and truth. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Proverbs 18:21)
Our actions are seed we plant in our gardens of life. When we act in loving kindness, meekness and humility and give, the seed will multiply and grow. The seed we plant carries over into the lives around us. Jesus promises us that we will reap 30, 60 or 100 fold when we plant good seed.(Matthew 13:18) Not a bad return on the investment into God's Kingdom! God's economy is plentiful. He is never in short supply. He has more then enough to pass around. God does not limit His graciousness to us. Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.(John 3:1-2) Wow that is some promise! No government can give us this. No college education can get you this. No job can pay these benefits. Only Jesus can. No person can assure us of eternal life or get us there except, Jesus Christ. So, when we sow good seed not only do we prosper but our souls prosper. We grow in love, wisdom, understanding and truth when we meditate on God's word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.(Romans 8:28)
The seed we plant goes to work immediately and begins to multiply. Next time you are out and about give the guy on the corner a couple of bucks with nothing attached. If you have no bucks pray for the dude. Not only does it feel good, God sees and knows. He also hears when one speaks nasty or ugly words to the guy on the corner or flips him off. He who casts the first stone take the plank from your own eye. We are all sinners and fall short the Glory of God.. Believers want to be more Holy. Our old desires shed off of us through Christ. God is the creator and shapes and molds us for His Glory and our divine purpose.
When we Bless we get Blessed, When we give, we get back. When we hurt someone, we hurt ourselves. When we love another, we love Christ. When we speak favor of God over our situations and speak His Words of life over others His promises come to pass in due season. By faith we know that God is faithful and just and He will supply all our needs.(Phil 4:19) His way is much larger than our finite minds can begin to imagine. When we trust God then we will have no have reason to worry. God says do not be anxious for anything.(Phil 4:4) God wants all of us and that includes our cares and worries. When we thank God His light moves out the dark. When we forgive, we too are forgiven. God will repay what the enemy has stolen from us.(Joel 2:25) When we ask Jesus into our hearts we are forgiven our wretched sin and our home will be eternal life with Him. When we Jesus we deny God the Father and we too will be denied everlasting life.(Mark 10:18) Our eternal home will be separation from Christ, in hell.
So no matter the seed you plant remember it will grow and multiply. We get to choose in this life who will we serve. What seeds are we going to plant? We can keep on to the crown of Glory in Christ assured of forgiveness of sin and eternal life or we can follow the god of this world and go where there is no hope into the wiles of the world and die without Christ Jesus. It is not too late to clean up the garden and ask Jesus to come into your life if you are reading this and do not know Him.
Think, and speak words of life over you and your loved ones, their situation, health and finances. These are Gods desires for us. Read the word of God meditate of His promises and give thanks. Take action and help others and watch your garden of life take off in leaps and bounds. You can enjoy the journey. You will have a harvest that you only dreamed, but larger then life. God is way big. Do not believe God and stay in doubt or fear or depression and doom and live a miserable life. Misery is not from God. Jesus came beloved so we could have life and that we might have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) The enemy comes only to steal, kill destroy.(John. 10:10) Choose Jesus. Choose life everlasting.
Happy gardening precious friends. Skye
