After resting a day after the surgery on my gums, I decided to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. I have a problem sitting still, and my turnip greens are getting big and need to be thinned. Rather than pulling them up and throwing them away, I transplanted them into another bed where I had planted head lettuce that didn’t come up. Before I finished planting all of them, they had begun to wilt. I hope they’ve perked up this morning.
When we take a full-grown human out of the world and transplant them into the kingdom of Jesus, they will undergo a refining process. Some break under the pressure and wilt. That’s why it’s essential that someone come along beside them to encourage and disciple them, water, and care for them until they are strong enough to stand on their own.
God gives each of us a ministry, and you will know when he calls you up for service and when it’s your time to work. It’s not always easy but fulfilling, and you will never regret serving the Lord.
Remember this: because of our faith in Jesus, we are the children of Israel! We are grafted in and adopted into the family. We are the children of the dispersion.
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them, The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace. And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel; and I will bless them. Numbers 22:23-27
