A Planting of Faith Seeds for the Glory of the LORD

The Lord opens our understanding…

“The angel showed me a river that was crystal clear, and its waters gave life. The river came from the throne where God and the Lamb were seated.” (Revelation 22:1–2, CEV)

The life you and I are living is God’s life! I am not suggesting you and I are God or even like God what I am saying is the life we are living comes from God to us as a returnable gift. And when this “clay vessel” that encapsulates the life God has trusted to us no longer works we will return to God. However, while no one really knows the day or hour when that will happen we’ve a whole lot of living yet to live!

In order to ensure we have every chance available to live a blessed and glorious life God came to earth in his own “clay vessel” just like yours and mine to show us how it’s done. And the Mighty God even goes one step further to ensure we have every chance to live a blessed and glorious life he gives us each other. Somehow by Divine Design and through the all encompassing ministry and blessings of the Holy Spirit we have been brought together at varying levels to support each other as we make our way through life.

One of the most powerful promises God has given us that applies not only to his “words” but the life he has given us as well is found in chapter 55 of Isaiah. “Rain and snow fall from the sky. But they don’t return without watering the earth that produces seeds to plant and grain to eat. That’s how it is with my words. They don’t return to me without doing everything I send them to do. When you are set free, you will celebrate and travel home in peace. Mountains and hills will sing as you pass by, and trees will clap.” (Isaiah 55:10–12, CEV, emphasis mine)

The blessings God has in store for those who truly, deeply, and intimately love him are as numerous as the stars in the heavens but for those who for whatever reason are unable to accept the life God has given them may be in for the surprise of their life. I don’t know about you but I cannot see myself living without God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit nor can I see myself making it through life on my own so in spite of my human frailties I know I am and will be truly a blessed person!

Believe it! Experience it!

Grace and PEACE!
