The Chinese Bamboo:
“When the Chinese bamboo is planted, watered, and nurtured throughout the growing season, it does not outwardly develop at all - not a bud or sprout appears. It takes five (5) consecutive years of cultivation before even the slightest sign of growth is visible. And then in the fifth year, something incredible happens: Within a six week period it grows to 60 feet!"
“For five years the bamboo seed silently develops underground - expanding its root system in order to make it strong enough to sustain the "sudden growth" that ultimately takes place in the fifth year. Had the tree failed to build a strong underground foundation, it would be impossible for it to "all of a sudden" reach its full potential when it comes time to push its way through the soil into the outside world!"
Don’t let the enemy convince you that nothing is happening or that nothing will happen!
Keep walking in obedience.
Keep trusting God!
Keep speaking the Word, remembering that God is alert, active, and watching over His Word to perform it.
Remind yourself of God's promises:
“The Lord has heard my plea; the Lord will answer my prayer.” (Psalm 6:9 NLT)
“Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.” (Jeremiah 1:12 AMPC)
“So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11 AMPC)
“We are assured and know that [God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.” (Romans 8:28 AMPC)
You can believe this because, God is alert, active, and watching over His Word to perform it.
Thank You for another wonderful reminder that You watch over Your Word to perform it, (Jeremiah 1:12), and that Your Word will not return to You void, useless, without producing any effect. (Isaiah 55:11) When I stand in faith, walk in obedience, trusting You, I know that ALL things will work together for my good and Your glory. (Romans 8:28) Why? You are weaving the threads together creating the tapestry of my life.
