Mark 4:26,27 - "Jesus went on to say, 'The Kingdom of God is like a man who scatters seed in his field. He sleeps at night, is up and about during the day, and all the while the seeds are sprouting and growing. Yet he does not know how it happens."'
Turn away from anything that would take preeminence over your time with the Master Gardener. Allow Jesus to uproot anything in your field that hinders growth. Jesus provides water from His pierced side and again, as He promised, "You will be like a well-watered field, like a spring whose waters never fail."
Living Water, "reign" down on us!
Our Father promises in Revelation 21:6, "I will give to the thirsty the springs of the Water of Life--as a gift!" He says only to those who are thirsty will He give that gift.
The word is a seed that contains the very life of God. When it's planted in my heart and left there, it will release that life. God's best is for me to take the seed of His word and plant it in my heart where it will naturally and effortlessly produce the changes that I desire.
John 15:7,8 - "If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples."
Romans 13:11 - "Do this, knowing the time, that it is already the hour for you to awaken from sleep; "
John 4:35 - "Do you not say, 'There are yet four months, and then comes the harvest'?Behold, I say to you, lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest."
"Urgency of spirit" is very real today. The culmination of the ages is about to burst forth as the glory of the Lord is revealed and covers the earth.
May our flesh not react to the "urgency" we feel, but may we position ourselves in Christ as we prepare our hearts—watching at His gates and waiting at His doors—so as God moves we hear and respond rightly.
In the parable in Matthew 25, all ten virgins had lamps. Lamps speak of our calling in Christ, a free gift. Yet only five had bought oil. Oil speaks of the anointing to move in our CALLING -- that which comes from time spent with the Lord. There is cost involved, choices we make. May our lamps be full so when the door opens and the Lord comes in greater ways, we might be "ready" to enter into what God is doing.
The five wise and the five foolish are in us—the deciding vote is ours! Are we going to be wise, or foolish?
May we be prepared, poised and ready, with oil in our lamps.
"Awake, sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you" (Ephesians 5:14).
Song of Solomon 3:9 - "King Solomon made himself a chariot of the wood of Lebanon."
THE SON OF GOD MADE HIMSELF A CHARIOT OF HIS HUMANITY. THE THRONE OF THE KING OF KINGS IS MADE OF THE WOOD OF LEBANON. CHRIST CONSTRUCTS A THRONE FOR HIMSELF IN EVERY PERSON. HE ADORNS THIS THRONE IN GREAT SPLENDOR SO THAT HE MIGHT REIGN THERE. HE BOUGHT THIS PLACE WITHIN YOU WITH HIS BLOOD. BY HIS GRACE THIS THRONE IS MADE HOLY.
