God is interested in helping you lead a better life. When the Holy Spirit comes to live inside you, He will turn your wilderness into a fruitful; water will spring up from your desert. You will experience productivity and growth in every area of your life. You will move forward. There will be a bursting forth on your right and on your left.
In this series we would be looking at how to be fruitful and productive as a child of God.
IT BEGINS WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT
In Isaiah 44:2-4, “Thus saith the Lord that made thee, and formed thee from the womb, which will help thee; Fear not, O Jacob, my servant; and thou, Jesurun, whom I have chosen. For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground; I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring; And they shall spring up as amongst the grass, as willows by the water courses”
In the scripture above “Water” in verse 3 of Isaiah 44 refers to the Holy Spirit. When you thirst for the fullness of the Holy Spirit, you can receive it. God said He would pour out His Spirit upon your seed, and His blessing upon your offspring. These underlined words do not only refer to your children. Your seed is anything that proceeds from you! Your thoughts, your ideas, your job and your money are all your seed, because they represent you.
When God pours His Spirit upon your seed you will become more productive than ever before. Thy will spring up as the grass in well-watered fields and as willows by the watercourses. No wonder the Lord Jesus said, “If any believeth on me, as the scriptures hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37-38).
Jesus said, “Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruits of itself except it abides in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing” (John 15: 4-5)
The scripture above lets us know that we have been pre-destined and ordained to be fruitful because we are connected to Him.
For a branch to keep producing fruits as it should, it must remain connected to the Vine. Likewise, you must be connected to the Lord if you desire to bear fruit continually.
And this what the Holy Spirit helps you achieve; He makes you continually fruitful (Isa 32: 15)
He not only makes you productive, He also causes your productive life to affect others positively. If rivers of living water will flow out of your belly, surely they must affect you and those around you. When the Spirit comes, He turns your wilderness into a fruitful field and your fruitful field into a forest.
This is the reason why you must speak in tongues a lot. The Holy Spirit causes you to prosper. He expands your mind, your vision and shows you steps you should take to be productive in all you do.
In the coming service we will look at things you are enabled by the Holy Spirit to do to live a fruitful and productive life.
1. The Holy Spirit lives in you to make you fruitful (Isa 32:15)
2. Every Christian has been ordained to be productive and fruitful continually (John 15:15)
1. Recognize that you have been called to be fruitful and productive in all you do so walk with that consciousness in all you do. Refuse to accept stagnation in any area of your life.
2. Measure your growth and productivity from time to time; this way you are pruning for more growth and fruitfulness. (Isa 32:15)
3. Stir up the gift in you always. Speak in tongues intensely and regularly. As you do the Holy Spirit will cause you to pour forth more ideas, see more opportunities and walk in greater abilities for increased productivity in your life.
