Day 24: Believe For It


ONCE UPON A TIME

there lived a

Little Boy

who planted a carrot seed

BUT

his mother

his father

his brother

all told him

“It won’t come up”.

BUT

the Little Boy

watered his carrot seed every day.

BUT

everyone still told him

“It won’t come up”.

BUT

the Little Boy

still tended to his little seed

watering

&

weeding

with a confidence

that

IT WOULD COME UP

despite all the

“BUTS”

from everyone.

BUT

then one day it happened~

IT CAME UP~

a Carrot!

Oh it was

bigger than

his mother's

his father's &

his brother's eyes

could ever imagine,

because they BELIEVED

“It won’t come up”.

Oh

to have the childlike faith as this Little Boy.

Yes, "The Carrot Seed" (Ruth Krauss) is a fictional story,

BUT is it really?

What is the carrot seed in your life~

that something that you are tending to IN FAITH,

even though nothing appears to be growing?

What "BUTS" do you need to weed out?

BUT

if you have FAITH like a child~

"If you,_____*(Put your name)

have FAITH as small as a mustard seed..." (Matthew 17:20)~

A MOVING FAITH

that PRESSES FORWARD

even when you see nothing growing.

A TRUSTING FAITH

in the

ONE

who created the seed in the first place.

Because everything

WILL COME UP IN JESUS~

HIS PEACE that transcends all understanding;

HIS HOPE

that is guaranteed for life;

HIS JOY

that that is everlasting!

Just you wait and see

because

HE

grows something beautiful,

something so much bigger from

the something that is so much smaller

despite the weeds of

the BUTS,

because GOD

said

IT WILL COME UP~

"Now to HIM who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to

HIS power that is at work within us" (Ephesians 3:20).

Therefore

Put yourself in

this

Little Boy's Story

of

A COMMITTED FAITH~

"Commit your way, _______*, to the LORD trust in HIM, and HE will act" (Psalm 37:5).

Because FAITH grows the seed~

"I pray that from HIS glorious, unlimited resources HE will empower you with inner strength through HIS SPIRIT. Then CHRIST will make HIM home in your hearts as you trust in HIM.

Your roots will grow down into GOD's love and keep you strong.

And may you have the power to understand, as all GOD'S people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep HIS love is..."

Will you

"BELIEVE FOR IT" (listen to the song below)?

"May you experience the love of CHRIST, though it is too great to understand fully.

Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from GOD" (Ephesians 3:16-19)
