LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF MARK 4:29b(Msg)
"Then Jesus said, “God’s kingdom is like seed thrown on a field by a man who then goes to bed and forgets about it. The seed sprouts and grows—he has no idea how it happens. The earth does it all without his help: first a green stem of grass, then a bud, then the ripened grain. When the grain is fully formed, he reaps—harvest time!"
10 WAYS YOU CAN WAIT FOR YOUR GRAIN TO BE FULLY FORMED .
1.While you wait for your grain (your desired expectation) to manifest . you need to pray without ceasing. (1 Thess 5:17) There are moments you would get tired , but every day you pray, every day you get closer to
your miracle . In the kingdom of God some miracles take time , while others happen in an instant . but if yours have not happened yet , keep praying , it is still gathering together ,once your cloud is full , nothing can stop it .Believe!! . Eccl 11:3a"If the clouds be full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth:"
2.Grow in knowledge - Listen , the more you grow in knowledge , the more convinced you become of your miracle , the more strenght you get to pray even the more , the more your faith becomes strong . plants don't grow over-nite , but it starts from inside the ground , even when you can't see anything , something is happening in the spirit realms , your miracle is forming and when it is time , that job will come , that
matter willbe settled , that spouse will show up in the name of Jesus , believe only ! Prov 24: 5, 10 . Eccl 3:1"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:"
3.Fasting - At times when we become weak and weary from the long wait , we tend to doubt , if it will come to pass .lol. it will !! Amen. What you do at such times , when you get weary , you need to build on your spiritual muscles by fasting and prayer . Choose a time and a day to seek God in prayer and fasting . Don't be anxious , but believe God to do it and He will in Jesus name , Amen. Fasting strengtens your faith
and causes you to fly like an Eagle . Isa 40:31"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
4.Trust - Without trust your grain cannot be fully formed . so trust is very important . work more on your trust through prayers and study of the word . The more you study the word the more your trust in Him is
built . 2 Tim 2:15(Amp)" Study and do your best to present yourself to God approved, a workman [tested by trial] who has no reason to be ashamed, accurately handling and skillfully teaching the word of truth."
5.Keep your praise on - In the midst of your trial , test , challenge ,keep your praise on . Is key if you desire to see your grain fully formed . Why? Anywhere God is , there is progress and growth . psalm 22:3(Amp)"But You are holy,O You who are enthroned in [the holy place where] the praises of Israel [are offered]."
6. Maintain your worship - True worshippers worship God not because of the grain , but because of who He is (GOD). And God will always settle His true worshippers with the full grain . 1 peter 5:10 "But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you."
7.Load your cloud with thanksgiving . keep thanking God for the grain and you shall surely see what you are thanking Him for . John 20:29 (Amp)"Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, do you now believe? Blessed [happy, spiritually secure, and favored by God] are they who did not see [Me] and yet believed [in Me].”
8.Offence - Always reject offence whenever it comes . offence stops your grain from growing . stop the offence , forgive if you need to and put your trust and focus on the one who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light . Amen.John 16:1 (NLT)"I have told you these things so that you won’t abandon your faith." Heb 12:2 (Amp)" [looking away from all that will distract us and] focusing our eyes on Jesus, who is the Author and Perfecter of faith [the first incentive for our belief and the One who brings our faith to maturity], who for the joy [of accomplishing the goal] set before Him endured the cross, [a]disregarding the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God [revealing His deity, His authority, and the completion of His work]."
9. Continue to sow and don't stop sowing - it quickens the harvest of your grain . For God loves to bless sowers . 2 Cor 9:8(Amp)" And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in
abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity."
10.Confess right and hold tightly to your confession without wavering . God is too faithful to lie . What you believe you will surely see . Heb 10:23 (Amp)"Let us seize and hold tightly the confession of our hope
without wavering, for He who promised is reliable and trustworthy and faithful [to His word];" and Luke 1:37 (Amp)" For with God nothing [is or ever] shall be impossible.”
Prayer : Father quicken my grain (miracle) in Jesus name , Amen.
you are blessed!!
