Glory Seed Devotional’s 2018 Experiencing Jesus, the Prelude to Life
Generation upon generation…
“So I began to give myself over to despair concerning all my work that I had labored at under the sun. When there is a person whose work was done with wisdom, knowledge, and skill, and he must give his portion to a person who has not worked for it, this too is futile and a great wrong.” (Ecclesiastes 2:20–21)
Where would you be had it not been for the sacrifices of previous generations? Humankind all too often takes for granted the blessings left upon them by their ancestors. While it is true, our generation has created what appears to be unsolvable difficulties. However, the same technologies that have been used to create the difficulties also contain the increasing capacity to solve them.
Therefore do not look at our difficulties with human eyes but give them a thorough examination through the eyes of God, think them through with the mind of Jesus, embrace them with the arms of the Spirit. Then once you are fully empowered by the Divine begin slowly line upon line, precept upon precept work toward a divine solution. Such has been the case over the millenniums of time as divinely inspired people have laid to rest many seemingly unsolvable difficulties.
The prophet Isaiah writing on behalf of God challenged the people of his day saying, “come and let us reason together.” That invitation and challenge is for our time and all time as well and out of it, divine help will come. Heaven has wonderful things for us but we must be spiritually prepared to receive them.
The ways of preparation are…
l Through prayer.
l Through practicing spiritual, mental, and physical discipline.
l Through earnest seeking.
l By becoming open to the inspiration that will come.
l By doing.
The seeds of faith we plant may never come to fruition in your day but because when empowered and embraced by the Holy Spirit you will not have labored in vain!
The seeds of faith you plant today will be the life sustaining “stuff” of tomorrow!s
“Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” (John 14:6)
Grace and PEACE,
