The kingdom of heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field. – Matthew 13:24
In our walk with the Lord, we do walk through difficult circumstance at times, some mountains seems to take more time than we expect, to move. In times like these when we approach the Lord, He reveals things to us in our spirit through the Holy Spirit and through the Word of God. He also gives us specific promise for the given situation from the Word of God. Those promises will generate Faith in our heart to overcome the situation.
These promises that God gives are like a seed. They are planted in our heart by the Spirit of God. As we cling on to those promises and allow it to take root in our heart and nurture it with Faith and abide in His Word (John 15:7) and be led by the Spirit it will start to grow. The Word of Promise from God has life in it and it grows when nurtured by Faith. It is the Lord who brings the growth (1 Corinthians 3:7).
The way the Kingdom works is like seed growing in a good ground. It might take some time, but the process has started. If you stay firm in your confidence in what the Lord has promised you, the result will eventually come. The fulfillment of any promise that the Lord gives does not depend just on God, it needs our cooperation. You need to cooperate with God to see the fulfillment of the promise. All you need to do; is have Faith in His promise and stand firm on it knowing that the one who has promised is a good Father and He will fulfill it. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
Just because it did not manifest right away does not mean that God did not speak or did not give you a promise. You need to stand firm on what God promised. As you stand firm on His promise the devil will come and attack your Faith, he will try to make you doubt on the goodness of God. It’s during this process that your Faith get stronger and becomes an ever increasing force which overcomes the problem. Don’t give up. Be patient. Let patience work (James 1:4).
As you wait patiently on the Lord, agreeing and confession to what He has promised for your situation and praising Him and not giving up, you will see the seed of the promise take root and grow and bear fruits. You will soon see the physical manifestation of the promise, and see that mountain move in your life.
So stand firm on what He has promised and you will see your mountain move away.
