He presented another parable to them: “The Kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. It is the smallest of all the seeds but when grown it is taller than the vegetables and becomes a tree so that the birds of the sky come and nest in its branches.” (Matthew 13:31-32 HCSB)
You have probably been at a point where you feel so small to do what God wants of you, “small” here can mean you do not have the experiences, qualifications, resources and all needed.
There are other times you are already walking in God’s plans for your life but “there are no results like you want to see.”
At this point you might be weary, cast down, discouraged and feel like you are not the one God should have handpicked for the job.
Thanks be to God who has addressed the way you currently feel aforetime. Let’s see what God wants to teach us through the growth process of a mustard seed.
Many of us are currently like the mustard seed, so small and to top it all we feel like there’s nothing good that’d come out of the lives we live either because the process is long and tiring or because we do not feel we are the ones for the job. God is saying remember the mustard seed that is very small and sown into the earth but grows taller than a vegetable and becomes a tree.
When the mustard was sown into the earth, no one probably noticed but immediately it grew, it was noticed so much so that the birds of the air soon found it as a place of refuge.
That’s the way it is for many of us, we feel what we do in the kingdom is unnoticed and all when in our seed stage but like a dream the Lord is making us into a place of refuge but not without the growth process.
He says I’m making you strong through the process.
A mustard seed grows through the different weather conditions.
You have been wired to grow despite the limitations you currently face.
Don’t keep chickening out of the process because you feel you’ll never become all that is in His mind for you.
You’ll be a place of refuge for lives just as the birds of the air come to nest on the mustard tree that was once a seed.
Remember Abraham, God called him alone, it was probably looking as though he was insignificant in the whole equation that the Lord was solving but when God blessed him, he made him many. The blessing was a resultant effect of diverse processes God had taken him through.
Look to Abraham your father and to Sarah who gave birth to you in pain. When I called him, he was only one; I blessed him and made him many.
Here’s what you should do when you feel small; Keep growing😀
Have a blessed week!💕
