IN the SEED is OUR POTENTIAL
Have you ever felt or come to a place in your life where you felt that there is a missing important piece to the puzzle.
We may despair that we don't see our true potential in life.
Our potential is something that is stored inside our hearts and we just see a glimpse of it in our minds eye and we know that this is something that we can aim for in this life.
It is if a blueprint of our very future is imprinted somewhere in our subconscious minds and it fills our desires with pleasant and fulfilling emotions, it becomes a driving energy within that keeps us moving forward to a brightness of the fulfillment of our dreams.
When we become born again as believers, we do receive a God given activation inside our heart and it opens up a way to reach for the skies of our potential.
1 Peter 1:23-25 -
23 having been born again, not of corruptible seed but incorruptible, through the word of God which lives and abides forever,
“ All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
25 But the word of the LORD endures forever.”
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
We are born again and we now have an incorruptible seed placed inside us that has the potential to grow into the very best and fullness of who we are designed and can be.
You see it is an incorruptible seed and this is like a promise or guarantee that it will produce the best result, stemming from the very life energy from God who is the creator of life itself and all the mysteries of life energies exist in this potential, which is planted on the inside of our beings.
So if there is an incorruptible that will mean that there is a corruptible seed, or the perfect and original seed has in some way become corrupted. So a corrupted seed will not reach its full potential, but be flawed by some infiltration or disease on the imprint or DNA program affecting its fabric of growth.
We see that this seed will still grow and have an external appearance similar to the original purpose, but has been corrupted so its properties of life are stunted and diseased and in some way depressed from reaching full potential.
We see in this life that most people in some way, do not reach their full intended potential and some kind of corruption has leeched into the life energy to restrict a true healthy growth to maturity.
However, thank God that Jesus came that we might have a life restored from the enemy who steals and destroys.
We now can have the pattern of life potential, programmed into us from the seed and be forever changed into the incorruptible, from what was once corrupted.
That is why there is greatness placed in each of us from birth, but is overshadowed by corruption from what the human race became after the falling away from the God. The good properties of the seed became infiltrated by disease and a stunted growth resulted.
The GM process modifies natural seeds programming and this is an interference to natures original pattern.
1 John 3:9
9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.
This appears to be the incorruptible seed and sin represents missing the mark or missing out on your potential.
So, when God came with His perfect plan to redeem mankind it was incorruptible and has the enabling planted in it to save us completely from missing the mark.
When we look at a seed and speak about programming it doesn't mean that we are a computer chip and that you place a bit of software and insert it in and bingo! We are like new.
The picture of the seed is what happens in our beings and we can take from the illustration of a seed that grows into a huge thriving plant on how it appears, when we begin to grow towards maturity.
We are wonderfully made beyond what science knows and we have a many aspects to our being, consisting of a spirit and a soul and body, interconnected and woven with the precision of a master builder, that is way above our limited thinking to conceive.
Gal 3:29 -
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
If we are in Christ by having His seed planted in our hearts, then we are Abrahams seed and heirs according to the promise. We have now inherited all of the blessings that are available through Christ, when we are born again with a new incorruption from above.
Now the next thing we need to do when we receive a seed, is to activate the seed and cause it to grow into its potential, as a seed that is not cultivated and nourished will not grow into the healthy thriving plant that it should be.
Matt 17:20 -
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
If we have faith as small as a mustard seed, we can say to the mountain of opposition and corruption move from here to there and nothing will be impossible.
This is the type of activation that we need to see for things to change in our life and the obstacles removed, that hinder our progress.
Like the seed it begins as a small implanted potential, that has the ability to grow into a healthy flourishing plant. The picture of each plant is inscribed in the DNA of each individual seed, unique in character and appearance.
Do you want to reach your seed potential?
Gal 6:7-9 -
I am sure that each individual and everyone who is born wants to see their desires and dreams fulfilled.
7 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.
8 For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life.
9 And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
We see that there is a sowing and reaping principle that is necessary to see the right result and harvest the potential that is inside us.
We need to be true followers of God and allow Him to lead us by the Spirit to our development into faith, towards all of the good things planted in our hearts.
The incorruptable seed contains all that you can ever dream, in reaching your very best potential for your life.
