This Bible verse might be very familiar to you. So before reading, pause and ask God to give you fresh eyes and an open heart to absorb it.
Those who are devoted to God will flourish like budding date-palm trees;
they will grow strong and tall like cedars in Lebanon.
Those planted in the house of the Eternal
will thrive in the courts of our God.
They will bear fruit into old age;
even in winter, they will be green and full of sap
Psalm 92:12-14 The Voice
Pot plant is a plant grown or suitable for growing in a flowerpot, especially indoors (in a protected environment).
Pot plant Christians are those believers who only grows within their comfort zone- within that circumference, they only stay indoors-in any protected environment, even though God didn’t made them a plant that only grows in a pot, they have chosen to be one. They have potentials to become a palm tree just as Psalm 92:12 stated, but because of their laziness, because of their complacency, they choose to stay in that protected environment.
Funny thing about pot plant Christians is they bear no or few fruits, they only produce limited fruits and sometimes if they are not watered often, they die.
So I pose the question, Are you a pot plant Christian? Do have the characteristics of a pot plant?
The honest truth is you have so much more to offer, your purpose, your fruits are so great but if you don’t grow you will die.
Don’t you want to flourish?
Don’t you want more saved souls in this Heaven race?
Are you not tired of being in the same position you’ve been since you got saved?
Remember, God is not looking at how beautiful your pot is – you don’t need to feel qualified. He is looking at the plant – He is more interested in you, the treasures He had deposited in you.
See, no matter what God gives you, you must always do your best as the Lord’s servant to make it grow, and you can’t afford to be just a pot plant in this mission field.
Get up, shake off every spirit of laziness, you are not working for man, you are working for your God, your saviour. The One who took the fall so you don’t have to!
ARISE Intercessors, ARISE from your sleep.
The time is now. God wants to use you for a bigger purpose!
You have an assignment.
Your seeds are as great as the sequoia tree (the world’s largest tree- General Sherman) but you’ve got to break out of those pots to be as great as the original tree God designed you for.
You have what it takes because you have Him
A pot plant Christian cannot lead others to Christ. Why? Because they are busy sitting in their comfort zone. 2 Timothy 2:15; do everything you can to present yourself to God as a man who is fully genuine, a worker unashamed of your mission, a guide capable of leading others along the correct path defined by the word of truth.
You cannot do this if you remain in this pot. You cannot present yourself to God as a fully genuine worker if you decide to stay in your area of comfort. Anyone can do that!
Remember in Revelation 3:16, God says if you are lukewarm, neither cold nor hot, He will vomit you out of His mouth.
A tree that does not bear good fruits will be cut down.
This message speaks volume to me now like it did in Jesus days to the disciples.
So as for you and me, 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Let us encourage and build each other up in love. And the word of God is a two edged sword, this message speakers louder to me the writer.
Love, Dami xo
