During the past few days I became interested in studying the word PURPOSE (design), although I already had some knowledge. Through my research of the word PURPOSE, since I was looking for something to compare it with, I focused on the Tree. Why???
Something specific caught my attention.
The sacred scriptures in Genesis 1:12 tells us this:
And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. (NKJV)
The purpose for which it was created is to give fruit, but the interesting thing about this admirable creation is that it does not need another tree to procreate, like for example: animals, insects, and even including human beings. Something that is crucial about the tree is to be positioned on fertile ground. Going back to scripture, God says this in Jeremiah 17:8:
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. (NKJV)
It is very important that the tree be connected to the source that gives it life because this guarantees that, even though it may be pruned, even though autumn may come, drought, etc., if its roots maintain their connection to the source of life, then it will bloom again and it will not stop giving fruit – the reason for which it was designed.
Do not allow anyone to kill the Seed that God put inside of you, placed to reproduce and give fruit. You can be betrayed, deceived, robbed, hurt, slandered, and even from the people you love most, from the ones you never expected, but even so, none of these things can stop what God already said he put inside of you. Our God doesn’t lie and He already confirmed: “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” Receive the offense in order to perfect what you carry inside and give something different in return. Don’t be dragged down by evil. If you have rivers of living water inside of you, what will you do with them?
Don’t dam up the spring! Let it flow!!!
