TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Whenever a friend helps you, you appreciate the difference it makes, right? So do I. Let’s see what we can do together to make a difference, friend!
RIPE FOR THE PICKING!
God not only expects a harvest out of this church, He expects a harvest out of each of us. What kind of harvest, you ask? Fruit.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23
God expects a harvest out of your marriage. You heard me. He expects to see the above fruit in the covenant you made with your spouse. It’s a testimony to Jesus and to your love of Him as well.
God expects a harvest out of your family life as well. I know this can be tough, especially as kids can rebel and go their own way. But if you’re walking in the fruit of the Holy Spirit, God will move in them. That’s a harvest.
God expects a harvest out of your thought life. Why? Thoughts become words and words become actions. Glorify Jesus with your thoughts. Have the mind of Christ and think of things that are excellent and praiseworthy. Pretty soon, you’ll be acting excellent and praiseworthy.
To have a harvest, you have to plant a seed. You have to water it. Are you planting seeds in your relationships? Are you feeding them and caring for them with love, joy, peace and patience so you can present Christ with a harvest of goodness? Be intentional. Put in the work.
If you labor over your relationships at home, your family will be ripe for the picking. So will the lives of those watching you.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO WORK ON YOUR MARRIAGE AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS. YOUR TESTIMONY IS THE FRUIT GOD NEEDS TO DRAW OTHERS TO HIM.
