Moving on to today’s message, we are going to be taking a closer look at Genesis chapter 9 verse 3. This verse is telling us what He has provided for us. In the verse, God is saying that “every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you…” Here, God is telling us that He is providing everything we need to survive and grow on earth. Why do we eat food? We eat food to grow. God is telling us not to worry about how we would take care of ourselves on earth. He is telling us that He has sorted us out. Yes! My brother or sister do not fret. God has made provision for you.
Spiritually, God is telling us that He has provided all that we need to grow in Him. Now it is up to us. We have to make the choice of whether to pick up these ingredients and grow or use the ingredients for other things. God made this provision available to all His children. Spiritually, God was referring to the Bible when He was talking about “every moving creature” Do you know that the words in the Bible are alive? Yup they are. You may ask how? Well, the Bible is full of the words of God. All the words of God are ye and amen. The words of God bring things into being. The words of God creates things. Thus it lives. God was telling us that to growth in Him, we must read His Word. His Word is what is found in the Bible. He compared His Word to food; it what we essentially need to grow in Christ. Hallelujah!
Now let us look at the second part of the verse, which says “…even as the green herb have I given you all things.” These words are very powerful words. When I first read this verse, I wondered to myself why the word green herb was used. So I researched on the green herb. What I found out was very interesting. I found out that there several types of plants that fall under the broad name of green herb. Some include mint, basil and parsley. Then the next thing that intrigued me was that they herbs are used for several different things. For example, garnishing of food, medicines and even candy. Then I asked God why the use of the word Green herb. Then He replied, “because it best represents my children.” I was in awe of His answer. Then He began to explain. He told me that like the green herb, His children come in different types. I agreed with Him. We all have different races, different characters, different values, different talents, different gifts and many more. No two people are the same. Then He went on to tell me that each and every child of His, has a specific task and talent to manifest and share to the world. I was shocked by this statement once I realized how true it was. Each and every single one of us has been given a task to carry out. God has blessed us with talents to be able to carry out the task. For example, someone has been given the task of sharing the Gospel all over the world, so he or she has blessed to receive the gift of prophecy to enhance this task.
Note that, your gift is always associated with your calling. Do not strive for other people’s calling. God chose you to do that task for a particular reason. You possess some qualities that the other person does not possess. Hallelujah!
Once God revealed this to me, the message of the verse became clear. God was telling His children that they are all unique in their own way and chosen each person to a specific job. He was telling His children that He has provided everything we need to be successful in carrying out these tasks; by ensuring that we grow in Him spiritually. Wow! Is the God we serve not amazing! His words are so beautiful and comforting. Hallelujah!
If you have read this message and you are awed by the love that God has for His children, kindly repeat this prayer sincerely so you can join the family to receive this amazing love.
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board. You can now be exempted from the wrath of the enemy and of God. Not only do you experience this, but your whole family as well. Wow! Isn’t the God you serve so cool? He is. Not only do you enjoy this, but you enjoy other blessings God has in store for His children.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out. Hallelujah!
I will like to encourage each and every one of you to meditate on the Bible. God can reveal all of these things to you as well. Open your hearts to Him and humble yourself to learn. He will reveal it all to you. I will ask that you pray for wisdom and understanding from the holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a teacher. If you ask, the Holy Spirit will teach you. Hallelujah!
Have a wonderful evening and let God inspire you!
