This morning I am sharing a DEVOTION that I receive each morning in my emails.
I love this DEVOTION and I hope you will too....
In Gods Love
You Are God's Garden
1 CORINTHIANS 3:9 LB
9 We are only God's coworkers. You are God's garden, not ours;
you are God's building, not ours.
We discovered that God's Word is a seed (Luke 8:11). Now we see
that the Bible says that we, as believers, are God's garden --
the place where seed is planted.
The question for you to consider is: who determines the
harvest? God, or you?
(The harvest I speak of is the fruit, or result, of the Word of
God. The harvest of blessing that God's Word produces in your
I suggest that the harvest is mainly controlled by the one who
determines what seed is planted. Would you agree?
If wheat seed is planted, it is unreasonable to expect a
harvest of corn. If only a few seeds are planted, it is
unreasonable to expect a large harvest. Wouldn't you agree?
Yes, you are God's field, but He allows you a lot of freedom to
choose what will be produced in your life. And the main way you
choose is by choosing what seed will be planted in your heart
You can choose something other than God's Word. You can also
choose different areas of God's Word. Planting different
scriptures will produce different results in your life.
If all you ever plant are scriptures on the new birth, you
cannot expect to have a huge harvest of healing or financial
blessing in your life. The choice is yours.
SAY THIS: I am God's garden. Lord, help me plant the seed of
your Word in me in abundance.
