I have heard it time and time again, “You have to hit the bottom before going to the top.” Time and time again I have agreed to that saying. Is is true? The answer is…yes! It is beyond truth and not just because I said so but because it is proven in both spiritual and physical things. In my nightly meditation, I pondered the book of Ephesians, chapter 4. I asked God one simple question, “What can I get from here?” I asked because I have read that book many times and as fresh as God is I just knew He had something else. Within a moment God showed me the oil platforms that drill for oil, the concrete companies that pour foundations, the Geo-tech Engineers who check the dirt for weight capacity, and most importantly Jesus who descended to hell just to build a kingdom that cannot be shaken. It all proves that statement to be a true. It is so overwhelming and yet pleasurable, how God parallels the physical realm with the spiritual realm in everything we do. He is simply but not simply, amazing!
I will write this just as I saw it. I love to visualize things as if they are in a children’s book or an animated film. So as I read my meditation today about Prosperity in the Seed, I started to visualize that process. In the middle of my visualization I read the words “Jesus was a seed” then saw Him as a seed. I read the words “the devil thought he destroyed Him” and I saw someone eating a fruit and discarding the seeds. Then I saw the potential in the seed or should I say I felt the potential. I understood that even though the fruit appeared to be devoured; the seed had the potential to not only reproduce but manifest destiny for the fruit. The seed had the life in it for all life in the future of that fruit. I saw Jesus as a seed, grown into fruit, and then eaten or devoured on purpose according to God’s will. All the while, He knew that as the seed He would be planted, grown as a tree with unmovable roots, grow branches that spread across the world, and produce fruit that would have the potential to be planted and grown just like Him. Oh how wonderful God is and how wonderful His revelation is. God is so amazing in the way He does things. I am so thankful to be a fruit bearing seed that inhabits the potential of Jesus! We must plant and allow the seed in us to grow and produce fruit. Its a cycle that will never cease. Seedtime and Harvest!
