As we grow in our relationship with God and drink His living water, the world truths that we have consumed are flushed out. We begin to notice the small but meaningful changes in us. Whatever it is that God is working out in you, it may be painful as we are stretched out of own comforts but it will be worth it. Take heart that soon you will see your blooms and a more defined calling and purpose for your life.
Jeremiah 12:2 You have planted them, and they have taken root; they grow and bear fruit. You are always on their lips but far from their hearts.
Luke 8:14-15 The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. 15 But the seed on good soil stands for those with a noble and good heart, who hear the word, retain it, and by persevering produce a crop.
Jeremiah 17:8 They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Continue to make changes on me, change me from the inside out. I rejoice in the changes you have already made in me and the seeds that you have begun cultivating. I trust in your plans for my life and and thank you for what you will do. In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
