Blade, Ear, Corn


We live in a fast life society. Fast cars. Fast food. Fast everything. We’ve become so used to the fast life that oftentimes we carry this ideology into our walk with God. Many of the analogies Jesus used whilst on the earth were of / to an agricultural society, something that those of us who live in the western world would struggle to really understand. We don’t grow crops, we just buy them. We don’t see the process of how food or clothes are developed and made, we just come into contact with them in their processed form.

Due to this, many of us struggle when it comes to the spiritual PROCESS that God takes us through. We think Him to be like a genie who gives people what they want in it’s final / already processed form. However, our God is not like that at all.

“Jesus also said, “The Kingdom of God is like a farmer who scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, while he’s asleep or awake, the seed sprouts and grows, but he does not understand how it happens. The earth produces the crops on its own. First a leaf blade pushes through, then the heads of wheat are formed, and finally the grain ripens. And as soon as the grain is ready, the farmer comes and harvests it with a sickle, for the harvest time has come.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:26-29‬ ‭NLT‬‬

The Lord is developing His kingdom within each of us and in order to do so it requires a process. It requires time. For fruit to be produced (His character in us) we must endure some things, grow in some things and be transformed. The Father doesn’t give us what we are not ready for. He takes us through a process of transformation and development to make us ready. He’s good like that.

The reality is, the “immediately” in God sized miracles only ever come at the end of a PROCESS. It’s just that the process happens underground / internally / privately. The Lord desires to produce a harvest through your life but before you get to that place it requires a season or even a few seasons of growth.
