Seed Time & Harvest October 6, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — Kara Baker @ 3:04 pm

My sunflowers last year were just incredible – all different sizes and colors. Watching them grow was both exciting and rewarding.

In late September, I harvested hundreds of seeds to be planted this year and carefully dried and packaged my bounty. However, I was quickly discouraged and turned-off from replanting when I began to till the soil.

New York had a rather dry Spring, and the ground was tough and unyielding. Jamming the pick into the ground with little response left me walking away in frustration…and I quit.

Later that week, I was voicing my defeat when someone mentioned that I should try again after it rains. The ground will be much softer and receptive, and I will certainly have easier success. That is exactly what I am planning to do.

Of course, this touches me spiritually. Many of the people that I have prayed for and spoken to of Jesus have been difficult to break into. They seem just as tough and stubborn as the sunflower patch.

This next wave of the Holy Spirit being poured out on our world will work wonders in softening hearts and minds to the things of the Lord.

Holy Spirit

“Holy Spirit, rain down, rain down

You’re my Comforter and Friend

How we need your touch again!”

This is my prayer for my world and yours.

God bless your labors with His Spirit.

I love you.

Jesus has promised you SO much in and through Him, and the Spirit realm is being opened by the smallest, most humbling-to-enter door. Picture the crazy entry to the great room of wonder and excitement in the chocolate factory of Willie Wonka! Smaller and smaller, weirder and more unexpected was the path to incredible delight and dreams come true.

Inside the magical room every problem melts away and anything seems possible…even probable! In this place of mystical wonder and awe, we are invited on a journey involving tests to bring us to a place of leadership, abundance, and power in Jesus.

There are four major places of purging that we must go through in purifying us from lust and pride. Just like Augusta, Veronica, Violet, and Mike, it is not OK for us to carry sin. Greed & gluttony, spoiled rotteness, competitive boastfulness, and arrogant aggressiveness MUST be stripped away to be given and trusted with leadership and authority.

God is looking for a son and a daughter who walks in humility and the fear of the Lord so He can GIVE them riches and honor and life. Humble yourself before God, and He WILL lift you up. Choose self-control in every area:

  • I don’t have to eat everything I want right now.
  • I don’t have to have everything I want right now.
  • I don’t have to discuss everything about me right now.
  • I don’t have to do everything I want right now.

Through HUMILITY, trust, obedience, and patience, Jesus brings us from glory to glory and takes us higher and higher and higher. We are changed into HIS image, and it is His good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.

God bless you richly, in Jesus’ name! I love you.

To see the Divine is beauty.

To encounter the Divine is splendor.

To unite with the Divine is ecstasy.

To abide in the Divine is the pinnacle and chief end of humanity.

Available through Jesus.

Possible through the Spirit.

Achievable through humility.

Deny your flesh; reap life everlasting.
