DEVELOP THAT SEED
For this reason, I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
2 Timothy 1:6
God has a seed in us all.
We also have to develop our seed. Let it manifest in our lives. The Bible tells how we can have our seed developed. If we never let our seed develop, it will never get out of the seed stage because it just sits in them, they don’t do anything with it.
Remember, ‘Study the Word of God’ let it develop. None of it tells on us like ripe fruit from a tree. It had to take potential and turn it into reality by developing it.
It all starts with a seed
By devoting the time and effort it takes to develop what God has placed in you, you will experience the joy of fulfilment.
God works sometimes in patterns. He starts with a seed, which He plants in us in the form of a thought, a dream, a desire. In order for the seed to grow and develop, we must nourish and nurture it, being careful to watch over it and protect it because the devil is a master of stealing seeds.
Remember the devil comes only to steal, to kill and to destroy.

Practice, Practice, Practice
Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me – everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:9 NLT
That’s what I want for you and me. I want us to approach each day as our golden day! To switch metaphors, I want your life and mine to be like a string of pearl, strung with day after day of precious days.
If you desire a good life, focus on having one good day, one quality day – today. After all, as someone has observed, “Every day is a little life, and our whole life is but a single day repeated”. So keep that focus on having a good day today and, at day’s end, slip that single pearl onto your strand. The pearls on your strand will add up to a good life!
But what if your past days was full of failures? A day of merely trying to survive? We all have those days, But thanks to God who enables us to forget the day that is done, to reach forward the next morning, and to press on toward the goal-the pearl again and again and again. In His power and by His grace, we keep following after God’s heart no matter what.
After all, every morning He gives you a fresh new day, His gift of a fresh, unspoiled opportunity to live according to His priorities.
So this week remember that your goal is simple…
You want to have just one good day of living your priorities.
“You’ll never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine.”
– John C. Maxwell
I hope you have been blessed!
I pray this Word – this Seed falls on the good soil and May The Lord answer your heart cry today, Amen!
