December 15: You Are My Garden

Lord, please help me be and do all that you want me to be and do.

You already are all that I want you to be. It’s just that it’s in seed form. Water it with My Word so that your responses to the fertilizers of life will encourage it and cause it to grow.

“For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as a garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth, so the Lord will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all nations” (Isaiah 61:11).

The doing will also come forth from the being. I have spoken in My Word all that you need to be a garden of righteousness and praise that will bring glory to Me in the nations. Yield to My promptings by My Holy Spirit to line yourself up with My Word.

I designed you to function in alignment with My Word.

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are Your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:8-11).
