TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I get so excited when I see you following My example and sowing seeds of life in the hearts of men. Water them with conviction, correction and love. I Am the Lord of the Harvest. I will bring in the crop for My glory, but give you the credit for a job well done.
WHAT’S IN YOUR GARDEN?
Having kingdom objectives is so important. Kingdom objectives are knowing God’s will and God’s heart.
We need to be like King David and be people after God’s heart. We need to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and say, “Okay, if Jesus was ruling and reigning in the fullest capacity right here, what would that look like and what can I do to make that happen?”
Kingdom strategies are also important. Kingdom strategies are God’s ways and values. These are the things you make a big deal out of and the things you don’t make a big deal out of. If you don’t make a big deal out of something, it’s because it’s not a part of your strategy.
If you have a million different strategies on how you’re going to reach your own family, or how you’re going to reach your city for Jesus, let me tell you, your field will be messed up. The Bible is clear on this. It says if you sow different kinds of seeds into a field, it ruins the fruit.
“Well, I’ll just throw a cucumber and a ‘mater side by side and it’ll be alright.” No, it won’t because they’ll cross pollinate and what they’ll produce is not good fruit. Kingdom strategies are the plan of what to plant, when and where.
Now, you need some Kingdom tactics – Godly actions and steps. This is where the rubber hits the road. We are to be “doers of the word” – that means people of action. Carry out that plan and see how God reaps the harvest, because He will!
But you and I have to do our part. Want to see your family saved? Want to see your friends and coworkers walking with Jesus? Get your act together and get some Kingdom objections, strategies and tactics. What’s in your garden?
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. – James 1:22-24
