"This Is The Confidence we Have in Approaching God: that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us." 1 John 5:14

As I was watering our flowers, I focused on the fact that I had to provide more water for the plants that are in Large containers. Now, I know this, but I had not given thought to it in detail, specifically how this is connected and relates to our need for the Lord's Water, our presence in His Presence every day.  So, I am standing over each plant, I've got the nozzle set to "shower" and "gentle water pressure" so I will not provide the water too strong or too fast. Either one would defeat the purpose of watering as I would waste the water and disturb the soil in a way that could damage the roots.

  The Spirit of the Lord began to say to me, See, the larger the vessel the more soil to provide for. Don't stop watering before you provide All the water that the soil needs.  Make sure to
give them a good soaking so that "all" the dry soil gets the water it needs. After you wet the soil, Make sure to pull out the small weeds trying to grow in the soil around the flower, they are easier to pull out after they are wet.
Pay attention and make sure you know which seeds you are watering, the good seed or the bad seed.

This made me think about myself, my family members, and all the people I come into contact with each day.
What am I watering (through my words, thoughts, prayers, praise and actions) in each that I deal with each day, the good seeds or the bad seeds?
 Am I providing enough water to bring forth the New Growth in myself and each of us?
Am I sitting with my Lord Long enough to be thoroughly and completely watered=Soaked so that all the New Growth God has planned in me and my people is properly feed?

We are vessels, some with large containers and some with small containers. I am not speaking about the size of our physical selves, but our hearts and the calling that God has placed on each of us.

We have the seeds that God has planted in us and everyday we need spiritual watering, cultivating, weeding, etc, in order to grow the way each seed has been Planned to grow and produce.
We are vessels/containers for His Holy Spirit who provides the gifts and the fruit of the Spirit.
Spiritually watering the dry soil of our hearts feeds the seeds that God has sown into us.
They have to be Spiritually Watered every day or the Good seeds will die and the seeds of weeds will flourish.

The larger the container that holds the flower or plant, the More water you have to give it.

Some people who are Large containers, (called to do Large Work for God) don't sit long enough to be Completely Watered. There are areas of soil all through the container that do not get thoroughly watered. They stay dry, unable by faith, unprepared to fulfill the Purpose given to them.
Just as a flower will not be as Effective in Providing Blooms as Planned for it.
Some people have large Work to do for God, but don't sit with Him long enough to be thoroughly Watered, in order to completely accomplish what God gave them to do.
They miss the Fullness of the Blessing, so God does not get All the Glory.
Many kill off the New Shoots of growth that God has begun in them. They do not water them or provide any spiritual food to these new growths.
Then you hear them wonder out loud, what they think is wrong.

*There is a small shoot of New Growth*

There are times where we spend too much energy fussing, debating, thinking on issues that we have No control over when we should 'Right Away', simply Give these things to the Lord in Prayer. Knowing/Resting in the Truth that He has a plan to make it all work properly.

We get distracted by some "chasing our tail mission", wasting time and energy and never getting the results necessary to add Power to our Faith, or Faith to His Power.
  We have to know our purpose concerning every situation and set of circumstances, and discern when all we are to do is hand the issue over to the Lord for Only He can resolve what is unresolved.
We are to REST in His comfort, allowing our trust and faith to help us wait to See His Glory in the situation, based on God's timing and order, Not ours.
I encourage you to Stop moving so much, To Stop trying to do God's Part and do Your Part, To Stop occupying yourself with empty busy work, and To Sit with Him, and allow His Spirit to Completely Water Your Whole Self, so that you are Restored, Renewed, and Prepared -filled with what You will Need to Accomplish the Work that You have been Called to do!
Give back to God what God has given you. This means, what ever the vision is, don't dwell on it, praise it through. What ever the assignment is, Don't fear doing it, give it back to Him and let His Spirit lead  you to accomplish it as He has planned.

There is Purpose in the Process that God has initiated for us, and there is Purpose in the Promises that God has made to us. Don't rush the processes and don't confuse the purpose of either of them.
We have to be careful Not to try and  Make the vision or promise come to pass by inserting our own thoughts, ways, thinking, and actions. If we do that, we will mess things up.

When we are in a time of transitioning from one season to another, respect the process. Slow down, and Wait for the Spirit of our Lord to led you. The enemy is always waiting for us to attempt to do things on our own and will bring to us a storm full of confusion, lies, and distractions.
he wants us to think we are going in the wrong direction, that we have made a mistake and we need to do this or that. If this or that is Not what the spirit of God has told you to do, then don't do it.
Use your gift of self-control to keep yourself disciplined.
When we stay within His Peace, Joyful, and at Rest, we are calm and able to Hear the leading and correcting of His spirit.
Do not borrow trouble, which means, don't get involved with anybody's
"good idea". their drama, their messes, and their lack of faith and trust.
Ask for a stronger spiritual discernment from the Holy Spirit so that You will Know your purpose in people's lives.

God will Keep us as long as we Wait on the moving of His spirit and not allow our emotions to lead us, or following what we see and hear others doing.

The anointing that we need to accomplish each Work from God He will supply.
In the name of Jesus, so be it!

Matthew 11:28-30   "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light."

Hebrews 4:9-10  There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.  For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.

On feet of Faith & Peace
Resting In His Faithfulness,
One Day At A Time By Radical Faith.
Isaiah 50:4/Isaiah 52/Jer 20:9-10,11-13/Joshua 1:9
