BAMBOO SEED

HALLELUJAH .. PRAISE THE LORD… WELCOME THOU HOLY SPIRIT.

For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.  And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. -GAL 3:27-29

What’s with the bamboo?

Sometime what we sow in the kingdom of God is still and doesn’t bring forth fruit immediately and we wonder what happened to the seed..it’s no more in the hand of the sower.. Its outside his reach.. and they wonder.. What happened? Because the sower is a God-fearing person, every month he sows patiently.. But deep in his heart ..there is a concern and a question arises.. But Lord, what about the harvest.. What about the seed of yester years.. And heaven seems to quietly stare at him and his concerns..he counts how many seeds he still has and sighs!! And not many left..thoughts running in his mind, wondering where did the devourer tempt him and waits.. Waits.. The waiting isn’t all together pleasant.. Its hard.. Cause he sees the seed is sown and there is nothing much to be done..  And he waits.. On God… asking, imploring and with vehement cries.. And still the Lord seems quiet.. He just wishes there was some way to find out..

HE WILL NEVER LEAVE NOR FORSAKE YOU

WAIT  IN PATIENCE – The faithful man of God.. Waits.  If he just had to wait it would’ve been easy… there is a queue outside .. As long as his eye would travel.. And then he perplexes.. O LORD ..faithful n just.. See now and see the queue.. His focus shifts from the seed to the queue outside to whom he must give the harvest.. He asks why isn’t the seed bringing forth.. And tells His beloved King, the snares that can befall him because of the queue outside.. He says You know. They don’t have mercy nor love. They want the harvest.. Lord. They want a portion of it.. Because I took some resources from them which I need to live  on this earth.. O why I need.. Again vanity.. For what is passing away we labour and cry so much..  Still Good and Faithful Lord.. Come thou .. O lord..

THE DEALERS – The day arrives to speak to the queue outside.. They are the IMPATIENT ones, they are THE BUSINESS ONES.. O they are the PROMPT ONES.. There seems to be nothing wrong in their land that they wont understand this poor man’s reason … that He is waiting for GOD.. For He is all that He has and it’s the only door he has been taught to knock..  They stare when he says tomorrow.. Some grumble.. But because Grace came, their mouths were shut for sometime. Now they have neared his door a bit closer..

LOOK TO THE LORD

LOOK TO JESUS  Again, he sits down and humbly sighs for the LORD to answer… now his eyes focus on his neighbour’s land.. There seems to be no famine there, his children  are well..actually from where he is seated, he can hear their laughter and he wonders how come they laugh so much and for what… then he see’s their cart and barn, they seem to be making bigger.. But his is empty and no reason to enlarge it.. Then again he sighs…  some tears fall too… today he forgot to thank His Master for giving the seed to sow..

His mind isn’t happy as when it was when he sang to the Lord.. It took a lot of struggle to even praise Him.. His finite mind could not comprehend the thoughts of Master..  His trust was not shaken in the Lord.. Now looking down at him GOD wondered..why doesn’t he look up.. Hey dearest. I have given you the greatest weapon..why doesn’t he use it.. The WORD..

GOD IN THE BUSINESS – So God nudges his heart, shakes it a bit and this man seems to smile at God for the Love that he feels for the Lord.. And then He praises.. For His faithfulness.. And he blesses the LORD.. He regains strength to take the Word and read it with faith.. And yes the Faith just flows in him… and he commands his seed not to lie dormant.. To do for what it has been laid in the darkness of earth.. To bring forth fruit and bud and not be so quiet.

RISE OF BAMBOO !!!

Then the weary lover of the Lord lies and sleeps. He sleeps.. Nothing matters when he is sleeping.. For his heart now overflows with joy that is inexpressible.. And that cannot be contained.. Next morning he wakes up to find the seed risen and shouting and proclaiming the Glory of God… and there he goes to his LONG QUEUE and gives them all he owes.. O it was the bamboo seed… suddenly shooting to 36 inches every 24 hrs!!

GLORY OF TRUSTING JESUS

Praise God ..For MY GOD DOESN’T LEAVE IN HARD PLACES, BUT THOSE HARD PLACES HE BREAKS UNTIL THE WATER GUSHES OUT AND THE THIRSTY N HUNGRY DRINK N R REFRESHED…

Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,

      Nor have entered into the heart of man

      The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.

But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God – 1 Corin 2:8-10

Believe in God.. For He has pleasure on those who wait to see His Glory manifested… to Jesus be all the praise Amen.

Love,

Sugi
