Word for the Week:

Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. [John 12:24]



Have you ever looked around and thought to yourself, "Self, this isn't exactly what I planned for my life?"  But then, within a split second of that thought you go back to what you were doing; living your life the in the same routine.  You say to yourself that you had dreams, ambitions and goals, but you look up, and it seems as though you are nowhere near what you’ve planned.  I believe sometimes our plans are like unplanted seeds, sitting on the shelves of life waiting to be planted. If our plans are left there, they will fade away and dry up. But, if taken off the shelf and planted, they will blossom.


There is a story in the Bible, found in the gospel according of John, about the disciples of Christ. The people and leaders began to inquire about Jesus and His purpose. They came to His disciples Philip and Andrew, who took their questions to Jesus. His answer to them was, “The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified.”  I looked at this passage as what I would define as a life changer: One of those events in your life where once the decision is made; then you find yourself going in another whole direction.  Once this statement was spoken, we clearly understood what Jesus’s purpose from this point on was to do: the will of the Father. 


As I thought about this, I think about how our dreams and goals are affected by the decisions we make once we decide that we are ready to move forth.  Sometimes once you decide that you are going to do what God has called you to do, it's seems that Hell and high water break out in your life.  Think back on the times when you prayed to God for a plan, and you knew God had given you direction,  but it felt like when you stepped out to start in that direction the fury of Satan's army came up against you.  — But, I say look again.  It may have been God answering your prayer, and the first thing He had to do was clean out the elements that were no good and had held you back in mediocrity.  Jesus went on to tell his disciples, “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit.” [John 12:24].  


Too many times we are giving Satan credit for what God is doing in our lives. God is birthing your seed through the transition of your old life.  He has taken your prayers and plans off the shelves, and placed them in the dirt to die, because if your seed dies, it goes in the ground to take root, and it will bring forth much more fruit than you ever expected.  Some of our seeds are ministry, mentorship, servant-hood and entrepreneurship.  He's made us leave the comfort zones of the church pews, so that we can grow with His purpose in the streets and reach many more lives, that He may be glorified. Some have been fired from from the stronghold of their jobs, even though when the Holy Ghost was telling them it was time to move anyway to birth their own businesses and help support the Kingdom.  Many have gotten locked up, only to find God in jail, and to heed the calling of God to ministering the true gospel of Jesus Christ.


This is why it’s important to always move forward in God’s will, because we never know what God is doing in our lives and how much being stagnant can cost us.  But what we do know is “Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” So we have to be willing to give ourselves to God's will and be willing to die to our own mediocrity, so that we may bring forth much more fruit in the mighty will of God.


And remember “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy”
[I Peter 1:15-16]
