If anyone hears the word “seed” especially if you are a farmer; your mind automatically goes to patience and a process.
We have many descriptions of God’s Word and one of them is seed.
Mark 4; 14
The sower soweth the word.
There is an account in the bible where the Lord sent angel Gabriel to give Zacharias and Mary a message.
From the account both Zacharias and Mary asked the angel a question however; and each got a different response.
The Lord does not mind us asking the right questions. In this account; Mary asked a fair question as she had never known a man and it had never been heard before so Marys question was genuine. The angel answered her question and even went on to tell her about her cousin Elizabeth to encourage her. The angel concluded by telling Mary that with God nothing is impossible.
What is a storm?
I would define a storm as an unexpected interruption to the flow of things. This is particularly evident at sea. The boat is sailing nicely and all of a sudden a storm arises that threatens the safety of the boat and in some cases the life of those on board.
We all go through storms in life. There are many reasons storms come along in life. Let’s have a look at scripture of some examples of storms and what happened at the end .
A name identifies a thing or a person. They are words of which a person or thing is called.
Bearing in mind that what we say is important and what we identify with is important; could this have an impact on what our names are?
We all know that God always has a purpose of doing something. Could there be a reason why the Lord changed Abram’s name to Abraham?
There is an account in the book of Exodus that most of us are familiar with.
Moses went up to the mount to meet with God. After a while, the people got impatient and decided to make idols and worship them. Why? Because Moses had delayed from coming down from the mount.
What is interesting about this account is that, the Lord had told Moses what the people were doing before he came down to the camp. The Lord told Moses to get down quickly for the people have turned out of the way. Moses then prayed for the people before leaving the mount with Joshua.
It’s amazing how many spiritual truths we can learn from life.
I am sure many of us have heard the Lord teach us things from events during our daily activity.
The centurion who was commended for his great faith learn't the principle of authority from his own job.
Have you ever made a decision based on the evidence presented before you? Have you carefully looked at what has been presented and said yes, this is okay? Have you made a decision based on natural factors? We all have and we all have made mistakes.
The phrase “He that hath ears to hear, let him hear” is found four times in the gospels, and the phrase “ He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches” is found seven times in the book of Revelation.
What is the difference between “refuge” and “habitation”?
A refuge is a place where a person goes temporarily for relief from something, in most cases relief from some sort of harm. A habitation is a permanent dwelling place.
In the book of Exodus the Lord told Moses to instruct the children of Israel to kill a lamb and put the blood on the doorpost so the destroyer would not come in. It was to ensure that the firstborn of the children of Israel were protected, Exodus 12; 13 “And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt”.
Heavens agenda in any situation is several steps up higher than what we are thinking. Kevin Zadai.
