A Clarion Call To Growth

Words In Season:


"As a woman cannot bring forth children as a  toddler, so cannot a tree bring forth fruits until it grows up"
         Soji Omole

Bearing:
"And he shall be like a tree 🌲 planted the rivers of water 💧 that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper"
Psalms 1:3

Bottomline:
You don't expect a 4 year old girl to get pregnant and bring forth children. Not even at this perverse and promiscuous age. So as long as a tree remains a flowering plant at the nursery or just transplanted in a plantation, it cannot bear any fruit yet. Not even in the season of its fruits. Many of us believers do claim the promises of God like that of the 3rd verse in the above Psalms, for God to prosper our works, but all to no avail.
Can God lie? Of course, NO.
Then what went wrong? We.
We simply won't grow spiritually into His promises. Nor grow into maturity. But rather take sickles and baskets and begin to look for mangoes in a young flowering mango plant. And if none is found, then begin all manner of tongues, prayers and fastings in rotation on various prayer mountains and vigils.
Go to a bookstore and pick a book to read and to study to show ourselves approved unto God,  we won't. But rather stay all day tuning from one Indian Bollywood channel to another on the television. Then I - pads and smartphones📱came to worsen matters!

In year 2001 in Lagos, a need arose in my life and straight I ran to Psalms 121: 1 & 2. Fortunately no help came.
But 8 years later in 2008, I counted N230,000(two hundred and thirty thousand naira), the way you will count a bunch of serviette papers, to meet that same need. Without consulting even the book of Isaiah or Revelation!
What made the difference? GROWTH.
Bishop David Oyedepo began his journey of mobility by saving a sum of N800 to buy a motorcycle. Along the way a need arose at a Christian gathering and he gave the money out as a seed.

And God gave him a double promotion to the next level - a Volkswagen beetle 🐞 Not to even a Mercedes Benz, which he gave to God again as a seed. And now, what's even the difference between the interval of both vehicles, Volkswagen beetle and Mercedes Benz? GROWTH
We are all aware that where he is today is a subject of controversy just like my old man's ripe age is. Some say he is in his 90s some say he has crossed over beyond 100.
Again what is the difference between that former stage and current stage of our revered man of God? GROWTH.
It is not for me to name what I count today in cash flow. Because I need to keep my traducers in perpetual ignorance, because I am even now enjoying their mockeries, which before used to irritate me.
What's the difference again? GROWTH.
While appreciating you for taking your time to read to up to this line, I will appreciate you more, if only you can begin the journey to real growth by being planted in God's Kingdom.
Even the Kingdom of Christ Jesus His Son. It is by repenting of yours sins and taking a step of faith by believing in Him to save you from them.  Matthew 1:21. Psalms 79:9.
