Summary: In the right set of hands, one kernel of corn could be a fortune for one person and just a small snack for another. Whenever you take a seed and plant it, given the correct conditions it will grow.
Recently, I knew a Local man who just up and packed up and moved 1800 miles across the country, because he was tired of the location and didn't like it any longer.
Only to discover, that when he had reached his new location he liked it even less than the location that he left
and then decided he wanted to return to the original place that he didn't like..because he realized he liked it more than he thought he did
Our Location seldom changes our circumstances, the players are usually the only thing that changes, life is the same wherever you may go.
Psalms 127:1,2 MSG
1-2 If God doesn’t build the house,
the builders only build shacks.
If God doesn’t guard the city,
the night watchman might as well nap.
It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late,
and work your worried fingers to the bone.
Don’t you know he enjoys
giving rest to those he loves?
Never in the history of the world have there been so many bored, restless people, and so much technology and things available for people to do
Conversation has all but been replaced around the table, after supper, with the advent of the smart phone.
And Lord forbid that your battery is about run down, after a full day of phone calls, endless text and meaningless web searches of I wonders...
And to think, that you might have to actually entertain yourself and communicate the old fashion way and talk to one another face to face.
You see it a lot more in the younger generation and you often wonder if they could ever actually entertain theirselves,
without something that has a battery in it, or is connected to the TV.
And you try to tell them, when I was a kid we used to go outside and entertain ourselves with no help at all
And they look at you, like you must be joking if you think I'm going to do that
Recently, I rediscovered gardening again.
Who knew all the useless information that our parents taught us when we were kids, kicking and screaming all along the way, would one day come in so handy.
Have you ever noticed that when you plant a seed you may forget about, but that doesn't stop it from doing what it was meant to do,
Low and behold..when you come back later to it...you discover a miracle...
you find it grows where you planted it?
It doesn't complain about the location, or it's circumstances, or what it cant seem or not seem to do, for whatever reason, it just does what it was meant to do right where it is.
Seed time and harvest is a law that God created and people still marvel at today ..it a process that happens and actually takes place.
Eventually that seed germinates and grows into the plant it was meant to be and bears fruit.
In the right set of hands, one kernel of corn could be a fortune for one person and just a small snack for another.
Whenever you take a seed and plant it, given the correct conditions it will grow.
It is an amazing truth of God's plan for everything, including us!
We are the same, were where we are at for a reason, we are meant to grow where God has planted us.
Then Why is it that so many Christians fail to flourish in life?
Life, with all the curve balls it seems to throw us, does not have the power to dictate, though some would think that it does...what happens in our lives.
The Word of God clearly tell us the way we can flourish no matter where we are!
this is what TBS. Psalm 92:12, 13 MSG
12 The righteous as a palm-tree flourisheth, As a cedar in Lebanon he groweth.
13 Those planted in the house of Jehovah, In the courts of our God do flourish.
What does it say?
Those who attend..Those who visit occasionally?
No, those who are planted in the house of the Lord.
Oh yes, there's one other thing..we must not forget the benefits of doing so..those who are planted in the house of the Lord...TBS. "They Flourish"
You see, Anyone can just visit a church and not be planted there.
Some folks call it just visiting...some call it a lot of things...I call it church hopping..been going on forever..and church's all over the globe suffer from it!
You should have a servants heart...and always be willing to do more for Gods kingdom and the local church..then you are trying to receive from it!
By doing so..the opposite happens to you..you always receive more back from The Lord, then you give! Amen?
If you don't believe me...you should try it sometime and you will find out why TBS "it is more blessed to give than receive" you could never out give God if you tried!
