Beautiful Harvest (Grow Fruit) reminds us to be intentional to bear fruit (and keep bearing fruit), and not just in the moments it’s easy to do so, but also in the moments it stretches us and grows our character.
Galatians 5:22-24 (TPT) But the fruit produced by the Holy Spirit within you is divine love in all its varied expressions: joy that overflows, peace that subdues, patience that endures, kindness in action, a life full of virtue, faith that prevails, gentleness of heart, and strength of spirit. Never set the law above these qualities, for they are meant to be limitless.
Luke 6:32 (NLT) “If you love only those who love you, why should you get credit for that? Even sinners love those who love them!
Luke 8:5, 8, 11, 15 (NKJV) A sower went out to sow his seed. And as he sowed, some fell by the wayside; and it was trampled down, and the birds of the air devoured it. …But others fell on good ground, sprang up, and yielded a crop a hundredfold…. Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. …the ones that fell on the good ground are those who, having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience.
1 Corinthians 2:16 (VOICE) For the Scripture asks, “Does anyone know the mind of the Lord well enough to become His advisor?” But we do possess the mind of the Anointed One.
Anointed and Appointed is both an invitation and a reminder. It invites us to walk in the fullness of the call God has for us, while reminding us that we have been anointed and appointed for the journey ahead.
Psalm 119:105 (KJV) Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
Ephesians 6:14-19 (TPT) Put on truth as a belt to strengthen you to stand in triumph. Put on holiness as the protective armor that covers your heart. Stand on your feet alert, then you’ll always be ready to share the blessings of peace. In every battle, take faith as your wrap-around shield, for it is able to extinguish the blazing arrows coming at you from the Evil One! Embrace the power of salvation’s full deliverance, like a helmet to protect your thoughts from lies. And take the mighty razor-sharp Spirit-sword of the spoken Word of God. Pray passionately in the Spirit, as you constantly intercede with every form of prayer at all times. Pray the blessings of God upon all his believers. And pray also that God’s revelation would be released through me every time I preach the wonderful mystery of the hope-filled gospel.
1 Samuel 1:27 (NIV) I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him.
1 Samuel 2:1 (NKJV) And Hannah prayed and said: “My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.
Wings of the Spirit reminds us life is found as we rest in the Spirit, and power comes as we soar on its wings and are directed by its flow.
Matthew 3:16-17 (VOICE) Jesus emerged from His baptism; and at that moment heaven was opened, and Jesus saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming upon Him, alighting on His very body. Voice from Heaven: This is My Son, whom I love; this is the Apple of My eye; with Him I am well pleased.
Genesis 8:1 (VOICE) …When it was time, God sent the wind to blow over all of the earth, and the waters began to subside.
Genesis 8:11 (VOICE) This time the dove came back to him in the evening, and there, in its beak, was a freshly plucked olive leaf. So Noah knew then that the waters had begun to retreat from the land.
Genesis 9:13 (VOICE) I will hang a rainbow among the clouds. It will serve as a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.
