Genesis 3:1-5 “Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said to the woman, ‘Has God indeed said, “You shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”’ And the woman said to the serpent, ‘We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, “You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.”’ Then the serpent said to the woman, ‘You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.’”
Sometimes all the devil has to do to derail you is place a tiny seed of doubt in your mind. Then, you water it and nurture that seed until it is a full grown tree in your mind! The devil placed a seed of doubt in Eve’s mind and instead of grabbing that thought and combating it with God’s Word, she watered it and nurtured it which led her to sinning against God. The seed is powerful because, although it starts small and seemingly insignificant, it grows into something much more impactful.
A seed is easily ignored as inconsequential in the magnitude of our lives because we don’t see the tree when we see the seed. What seeds have you allowed to take root in your mind that you need to uproot right now? Are there some spindly trees that you can prohibit from growing any more by uprooting them now? Take action and don’t allow them to grow any further!
Renewal Thought: Just as a negative seed has the power to grow into an unhealthy harvest in our lives, so too does the positive seed! Sow seeds today of faith and hope in your mind today. Remind yourself who you are in God and who He says that you are!
Prayer: The seeds of health, prosperity, peace and joy are working in me. Father, I believe Your Word is growing in me and will produce good fruit. I am rooted and grounded in Your Love, Strength, Favor and Blessing. Your seed is growing a great harvest in my life. The harvest of the healthy and new relationships, prosperity, and peace are growing in me. Thank you, God!
