Like a Tree Planted...
Every way of life you choose to live carries a fruit whether good or bad, the decisions you make and the steps you take in your life must be weighed on the scales of the outward result. That’s why Jesus tells us that they (false prophets) shall be known by their fruits.
The life of any believer must be a life of results or fruit. The responsibility of any man by God is to bare results of the faith they profess. In fact, the first mandate that was given to Adam in the garden of Eden was to Be fruitful!... then multiplication and replenishing the earth came in later but the first thing that was told him to do was to be fruitful.
Believers ought to carry the results of the word they believe in because seriously who would want to follow or agree with you to believe in something that doesn’t show any form of result to prove its genuine existence. Same with the Kingdom of God, its brings the kingdom great glory when a member is fruitful because that is the nature of every child of God.
You can’t represent a family that you say is rich yet you lack a meal, you can’t represent a family of healthy members when you are toiling with infirmities.. it just doesn’t make sense and doesn’t attract any more family members if you ask me. If you want people to embrace your lifestyle you must carry the results of that very lifestyle
Well there’s no fruit that can be produced without a tree in the first place and you can’t have a tree without a seed.
So, what kind of seed should we sow in ourselves in order to have good fruit?
Now I have a testimony on a seed known as The Word of God! (Luke 8:11). The price of this seed is faith. To receive fruit from this word means you have to believe the word of God in its rightfulness. By seeking out the things God spoke over your life and continuously making them your reality by applying them to your daily living by faith, it is well assured that the very word will start to bear fruit in your life..and faith comes by hearing the very word! So to grow your faith you have to continuously keep yourself filled and loaded with the Word. (Romans 10:17)
2 Tim 3:16-17
16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God's will in thought, purpose, and action),
17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.
What a seed! This seed not only bears good fruit but it also equips the tree (you) for every good work... It equips you for your business, career, education, ministry all you set your mind on for a good cause, It will provide you with the skill to perform every task diligently.
3 And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity].
Gloryyyy! He literally expresses the constant provision of one who delights in the Word (law/precepts) of the Lord. And again I repeat what a seed! This is where you walk in the reality of the abundance immeasurable. You’re like a tree planted by the water stream, you never lack! You’re like a cup which runs over. How can you not go all the way for this seed?
I could go on and on about this Word. But let me end with this, it’s a light.. it defines the right direction you ought to take, it can align your decisions and equate all your paths to success and fruitfulness.
How I find delight in this word, because its not just words, these words carry the very Life of God in them. They are GOD-BREATHED!
My question to you is: Are you willing to believe it?
