Wisdom for Spiritual Garden

Colossians 1:10 – “Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better” (NLT).

Proverbs 3:9 – “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops” (NIV).

Thanksgiving Wisdom

We thank God for another year; the old is gone and the new is here. We thank God for giving us this opportunity to do His will for our lives and protecting us through our personal processes. We all thank God for everything He has given all of His children, and the blessings we have yet to receive as we look forward, God willing, to another blessed year, in the name of Jesus!

Lord’s Wisdom

God knows it all as He created everything on earth including instructions in the Holy Bible for us to adhere to. As we cultivate our Spiritual garden, we must engage in Pulling Weeds, Planting Seeds and learn from His wisdom and trust our Lord with all our heart and soul. As our Spiritual leader, our Lord is the Smartest One of all of us and in following His will, glorifying Him; He remains in control of our journey. Proverbs 3:9 states “honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops” (NIV). Paying tribute to our God requires us to acknowledge Him First and pay tribute to Him. He does not need our assets, as everything on earth already belongs to Him (Psalm 24:1). The choices we make, good or bad is a reflection of us. Make wise choices in our daily lives that are pleasing to God. “Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better” (Colossians 1:10 NLT). God provides us with clear instructions for our actions on earth to facilitate our journey to His Heavenly Kingdom. Leaning on Him to provide His infinite wisdom and not our personal opinions on how to achieve a goal is important to follow His will on earth. God will give us the WISDOM to cultivate, nurture, and Pull Weeds, Plant Seeds to increase our Spiritual growth. We should use our Lord’s Wisdom that He provides for growing our Spiritual garden.

Garden Warfare

God knows what we need even before we ask for anything. Through our prayers and spending time with Him, we can receive discernment and the knowledge to protect our Spiritual garden and ensure it receives the proper nutrition so that we can grow with it. We can defeat enemy attacks! As we follow the Great Commission Jesus gave us to GO and make Disciples in Matthew 28:18-20, we must ensure we are doing it with love and God will be with us to protect us. Keeping our Lord first, using His Wisdom, to grow our Spiritual garden allows us to keep it replenished with the proper fruits of the Spirit, and we can accomplish anything with the Lord on our side. To ensure we have our Lord’s Wisdom operating in us as we cultivate our Spiritual garden we must listen to His instruction to protect it. Ask Him what does our garden need for us to reflect the same unconditional love that He has for us? In our lives, we should apply the same unconditional love that led Him to sacrifice His only Son to save us (John 3:16). That is A LOT of love! This sacrificial act that our Lord made, cleanses us from our sins. “As your seeds begin to sprout, honor Jehovah for the blessing. Seek discernment and continuous knowledge in ensuring the growth is pleasing to the eyes of the Lord. “Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops” (Proverbs 3:9).

We must continue to honor our Lord with all the first fruits of all that He blesses us with. Obeying God and honoring Him, will lead the way to a successful harvest. Proverbs 3 informs us that we should trust in the Lord, listen to His instructions, be loyal, and depend on God. If we do these things He will provide us with a good reputation and a satisfying life for many years. Ask Him for guidance, do not outsmart ourselves but fear Him by turning our backs on evil. If we follow this He will provide healing for our bodies. If we give Him the first fruit (an example is tithes or 10% of income) He will fill our barns with supplies. As God’s children, we should accept His discipline and correction because He loves us. The Lord’s wisdom is more precious than anything we compare it to. Embracing and operating with our Lord’s wisdom provides long life, honor, satisfaction, happiness that only our Founder can provide. The Lord’s discernment will prevent us from stumbling, falling, while providing us with restful sleep. The Lord secures us. Share resources with others, do not plan evil things against other people, and do not bully each other. Do not envy violence or follow it because God detests that but is friendly to those who seek and accomplish good acts. He curses wickedness, mockers, fools, and blesses justice, godly, humble, people, and honors the wise. We should walk with God, learn from His wisdom and grow closer to Him daily. There is no one more powerful or wiser than our Lord!  Reflecting upon how to cultivate our garden using our Lord’s wisdom, with patience and perseverance we will be successful.
