2 Minutes of Hope April 12, 2021
"So is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it." - Isaiah 55:11
The Lord is constantly reminding me about the growing process.
Whenever I'm feeling frustrated or discouraged with the lack of progress, I feel the Lord lovingly tend to the field of my heart as He tenderly reminds me of this unchanging truth:
A seed, once planted, does not reap an immediate harvest.
In the same way, God’s Word takes time to grow inside your heart. Your salvation, God’s promises and your prophetic destiny are all seeds that, once planted, live and grow inside of you forever.
These seeds, God’s Word, are our eternal hope to know that we will see the fruition of every word, and every promise planted. Because we know that by Isaiah 55:11 that His word never returns void.
You may feel dead, dry and barren in this season, but keep tending to your soil.
Water yourself with the Word and with worship. Fertilize yourself with fellowship. Let the Lord prune the areas that are not producing fruit. I promise you that as you grow in Christ, there are seeds that are sprouting to produce in you the fruit of your purpose and the glory of eternal life.
So have hope while you grow. Because He’s not finished yet.
Heavenly Father, thank you for being faithful, even when we are faithless. Thank you for giving us Your Word that never returns void. Thank you for making me resilient and unique. I will stand today with hope in knowing that every seed that you have planted will spring up a harvest and produce good fruit. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
