The kingdom of God has it’s own dynamics at variance with the operation of man’s thoughts. God chooses to defy natural expectations and fulfil his thoughts in ways contrary to our natural way of thinking.
Our journey is to unify the thoughts of our natural minds with the thoughts of the Spirit resident in us. As we do this, there is always a spark of light to us from the light of God, and we become fruitful outwardly through this unification.
How do we do this? We sow, we keep on sowing, we faithfully sow and yet after the sowing, there is still a waiting period where no man knows how the harvest is going to come about. Here man has no power, he knows not how but God owns the how and does it how and when he wants it.
And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. Mark 4:26-27
This is what the apostle Paul related to the church at Corinth, he did the planting and Apollos did the watering but only God has the power to give yield;
I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. 1 Corinthians 3:6-7
God does this so that the excellency of the power might be all of him, and hence, promotes dependence on Him, thereby destroying faith in the arm of the flesh.
There are those that have been faithfully sowing into their lives and into the lives of others in the assignments God has given them. These ones have been expecting the increase, sleeping and rising night and day, waiting to see God give the breakthroughs;
In an encounter with the LORD, I saw a Christian, he had been labouring for a long time in God’s vineyard even though things weren’t moving according to his own timing and expectations.
As he was faithfully sowing still, I saw the Lord appear to him and I heard him say these words to him, “The little favor you have received is a door opener to the major breakthrough that has come upon you, what is coming in the next three months will exceed your expectations”
When I came out of this encounter, The Holy Spirit Led me to Ephesians 3:20-21
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
Then The WORD appeared to me saying, “Say to my Body ‘I cannot be mocked, you have kept the word of my patience, you have sown and now you are breaking forth into your unprecedented increase.
keep glorifying The LORD, for in the next three months I AM exceeding your expectations, you are breaking through and overflowing with abundant provision for my assignments.
I AM doing abundantly above all you have asked or imagined according to My Power in you.’ ”
