Scripture: Mark 4:21-29, 1 John 3:21-22, 1 John 5:14-15
Mark 4:26-29 says, “And the kingdom of God is as if a man should scatter seed on the ground, and should sleep by night and rise by day, and the seed should sprout and grow, he himself does not know how. For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.” God’s Kingdom is like planting our own spiritual garden. Our heart is the garden! We choose what to plant. We can choose to plant God’s Word – each Sonship Gift is good seed. We sow the incredible truth of blamelessness until the harvest of confidence, assurance and fearlessness comes. 1 John 3:21-22, “Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence toward God. And whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do those things that are pleasing in His sight.” 1 John 5:14-15 “Now this is the confidence we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” As mature believers, we should be able to pray a promise confidently and boldly with faith from the assurance of our blamelessness. And then we expectantly look for the answer. Each Sonship Gift has to be planted like a seed. It has to be watered, cultivated and nourished until the reality sprouts and grows in us!
