Musings And Meditations Day 6.

ROOT, SHOOT AND FRUIT.

I recently watched a joyce Meyer broadcast. She is such a brilliant teacher and anointed of God. She taught on how a seed germinates and puts down more root than shoot at first, then later bears fruit, or flowers. She used a film clip sped up to show the process of germination to growth. What she taught on I already understood being a gardener of some 30 years. A single seed is burried and hidden in the soil, it germinates and starts to put down roots, then the shoots pop out the soil. The roots go down deeper than the shoots at first!

This is very frustrating for new gardeners because they want things to happen quickly, but nature doesn’t work like that, the roots go down deep for food and stability, or else at the first strong wind they would topple or break. So one just has to learn patience. Eventually the upward growth catches up and eventually it’s fruitful!

So what’s my point? The same as Joyce Meyers, maturity doesn’t happen over night! She didn’t get to where she is in a week, she had to follow God’s process, and it is generally very slow, but boy, it’s also very good.

Spiritually we grow through prayer, bible study and meditation, fellowship with believers and daily witness. So, how does your spiritual garden grow? We all can make a good choice to grow to maturity, but it won’t just happen! Here’s something for you to do, read Psalm 1, see the two contrasts of the blessed and the wicked! Think on how the blessed thrive. Understand how they thrive, decide you want to thrive like they do, and then practice what the blessed do. Notice how the tree planted by streams of water is succesful! It’s also Root, Shoot, then Fruit! Then notice the two outcomes or consequences of the choices of the righteous and the wicked, and then make your choice. God bless John.
