Seeds rarely ever taste like the fruit of a thing.
Lemon, apple and pumpkin seeds don't taste like their FRUIT.
You're often seeing the fruit, and enjoying the fruit of a beautiful life or marriage or family but miss the difficult seed sowing time for a harvest.
If we're regularly asking the Lord to Fix it, whatever [it] is and NOT FIX US, for [it].
It's hard submitting to one another, and give place and purpose and priority... when we're asking God to FIX our situations and circumstances but hardly EVER ask Him to FIX US for whatever He shepherds us to and through.
A God size assignment... requires a God size anointing. Heaven's purpose... requires Heaven's power. God's salvation... requires God's Son.
I love what John shared with the brethren in 3 John 1:5-8. He affirmed and assured them of their actions of kingdom-minded hospitality was fitting and worthy of God. The church found room in their hearts and lives to advance the kingdom by showing hospitality to the brethren when they: ‚ÄĘ 1. Supported the message worthy of God. 2. Supported the messengers worthy of God. 3. Supported the mission worthy of God.
