“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!” Psalm 46:10 ESV
One reaps what one sows.
I need never be weak or feeble for the Lord my God is with me. “Waters in the wilderness” and “streams in the desert” and “pools and springs of water” is En Gedi in my mind. In the midst of what looks like forsaken rock filled desert are the beautiful waterfalls, pools and foliage with flowers and animals and birds of En Gedi.
Salvation requires repentance first. If a person says they are a Believer and are not producing fruit in 3-4 years, are they truly submitted to the Lord? Any day in the Lord is for healing. There are no limitations. The Kingdom of God is about increase. Lord Yeshua must know first those who are to enter His Kingdom. As man could not do anything to our Lord during His time on earth unless it was allowed as part of God’s plan, no one can do anything to me outside of the plan of God in my life.
Meditate & Apply: Sowing and reaping: One reaps what one sows. En Gedi is one of my absolute favorite places in Israel. It is what God did in my life – took me in my desert state and made me beautiful and fruitful in Him (and Him alone). Repentance is first before salvation can take over. I must also be known by God. The Kingdom of God is always about increase. Since God is for me, no one can really be against me.
"I must also be known by God." Amen! If not for God...auwe!
Absolutely a principle that cannot be ignored - sowing and reaping.
Repentance - another principle that cannot be ignored. - It makes me think of that guy who wanted to buy the rights to the Holy Spirit! Auwe! In You, alone, Lord is the victory of all life!
Preach it pastor...I need never be weak or feeble for the Lord my God is with me. âWaters in the wildernessâ and âstreams in the desertâ and âpools and springs of waterâ is En Gedi in my mind. In the midst of what looks like forsaken rock filled desert are the beautiful waterfalls, pools and foliage with flowers and animals and birds of En Gedi. So, so exquisite..The Lord thinks of everything. A time of refreshing for all to those who come to him..drink...and, sit in the shade for some time...
En Gedi sounds amazing. Yes, we need to repent and actually stay repentant, otherwise it seems like fruit doesn't grow, feels more like going backwards. Thank God for His plans and He helping us walk in them.
