Truly, truly I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. John 12:24 NASB
I was thinking this morning of all that I’ve been through on my journey through life. The thought, gone but not forgotten came to mind. Suddenly I saw a seed lying dormant in the ground and I realized that not one seed is ever lost or forgotten. God knows where they are and He knows what is needed to resurrect that seed. He knows the time that seed was purposed to grow. He knows what that seed is needed to do, to feed or give shade.
There’s purpose for every seed and even though it remains hidden under the ground and we can’t see it in the natural, God knows. That’s what trust looks like. He directs our steps. Our focus must remain on Him regardless of whatever happens in our life. Our past, our present, even our future is determined by what is in those seeds. Trusting someone we cannot see with seeds we cannot see, that is faith. Not trusting in our ability, but in His. He is well able to keep what we’ve committed to him. With every seed!
Satan also plants seeds of doubt and unbelief. Seeds whose purpose is to choke out the plans and purposes of God. Don’t assume you know the reason you went through that painful event. Don’t assume you know what God has planned for that seed. Trust His timing for that. Keep yourself tuned into His voice and follow His instructions. He’s got a plan and will show you what you need to know and not a moment too soon.
You don’t know what that seed contains, your job was to plant it. You don’t know what that seed needs but you were asked to water it. You have a need for food and God leads you back to the harvest He’s provided from a seed planted years ago because His timing is perfect.
Trusting The Creator,
