|The new pig is growing very fast|
But, the Lord gave my wife the word, “firstfruits”. In the midst of apparent failure and loss, the Lord spoke His perspective of the issue. What we thought was loss because of our perspective, was actually gain. Porky was the firstfruits. Firstfruits is something that reaches maturity, fruitfulness, and can be harvested (and thus put to its intended use). Firstfruits is a sign, or evidence, of a greater harvest! No longer could we treat, consider, or even think that the situation was a waste of money and something not worth doing again. So, I encouraged myself, and bought a second pig (a female) as a gift for my wife. Tiffany also called her new gift Porky. This Porky has been growing well!
The Holy Spirit has been speaking to us a lot this year about believing in His Word (the Scriptures) and the words He speaks to us, and not accepting apparent failure. God's understanding is infinite. He can not lie. He is STILL working ALL things together for our good (Romans 8:28). Why don’t we believe Him?
Recently, when it appeared that no one would be able to come to our Call for Destiny conference at our center, we chose to believe God. It would have been very easy, perhaps quite reasonable, to abort the dream of God. But a dream was birthed, and people were touched and changed, including our center. God is speaking over our lives, situations, and conditions. He is giving value to valueless situations. If we hear what He is saying, we’ll be able to believe Him and work out His possibilities using the impossible (do the impossible with the impossible). What are we doing with apparent failures? Are we saying what's humanly obvious, or are we willing to see what God sees? Hear, and say what He says? Abraham knew about this very well.
Here's a little reminder of things we posted earlier this year...you might as well keep dreaming the dreams of God, because God hasn't changed His mind about you and Him.
Beloved, believe because God believes in you.
