DAILY MEDITATION

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. I Peter 5:10 To be Fruitful and Multiply is a process that is forged through experiences that may not look productive but are necessary. God has called, commanded us all to be Fruitful and Multiply but the challenge is to LIVE through the process to the expected end. Life’s challenges and difficulties are real and will affect you and what you do, however, you must remain focused through the challenges and difficulties to prevent the ill affects of those challenges and difficulties from getting you to your expected end.

DAILY MEDITATION

For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now. And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for th

DAILY MEDITATION

For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. II Corinthians 4:15-18 During this season of thanksgiving, we are challenged to reflect on life and find within all of its challenges and struggles an attitude of gratefu

DAILY MEDITATION

For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God. For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you. Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates. II Corinthians 13:4-6 As we engage life with its challenges and difficulties we can do so with power even in our weakness for it is God’s promise to us. Holding to the promise of God for life and life more abundantly is the expectation, hope that transcends what is in order for us to get to what should be. LIVE

DAILY MEDITATION

And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. II Corinthians 12:7-10 The process of moving toward, bein

DAILY MEDITATION

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 Make the decision to LIVE in and through the circumstances of your life because regardless of how you feel or what you see or what you have, you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. God in choosing you to work your assignment, His purpose and plan for your life, has predestined, prepackaged you with the necessary tools, power to accomplish His purpose and plan. You may not feel or yet see the manifestation of the “how” but keep pressing and in your press you will dis-cover, uncover all you need to LIVE and be Fruitful and Multiply as God has ordained. Stop allowing the full understanding of the “h

DAILY MEDITATION

I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide 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 15:1-5 Working our assignment, God’s purpose and plan for our lives, cannot be fully done without our working our relationship with God. Our relations

DAILY MEDITATION

Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work. Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest. And he that reapeth receiveth wages, and gathereth fruit unto life eternal: that both he that soweth and he that reapeth may rejoice together. And herein is that saying true, One soweth, and another reapeth. I sent you to reap that whereon ye bestowed no labour: other men laboured, and ye are entered into their labours. John 4:34-38 If we are going to be Fruitful and Multiply as God has commanded we must be serious, diligent about o

DAILY MEDITATION

He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. Luke 13:6-9 The command to be Fruitful and Multiply is a direct result of our working our assignment and relationship with God to produce, go through the process of reaping a harvest. There will definitely b

DAILY MEDITATION

And he said, So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground; And should sleep, and rise night and day, and the seed should spring and grow up, he knoweth not how. For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. But when the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come. Mark 4:26-29 The major barrier to all of us moving forward in the command to be Fruitful and Multiply is the “what ifs’ of life. The “what ifs” often paralyze and causes us not to move or act with assurance that if we work our assignment, God’s purpose and plan, that we do not have what it ta

DAILY MEDITATION

And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. Matthew 21:19-21 We have a command from God to be Fruitful and Multiply which is a direct result of working our assignment, God’s purpose a

DAILY MEDITATION

But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Matthew 13:23 To bear good fruit we must have a good Word for us, fertile ground in which to sow and nurture toward God’s promised outcome to be Fruitful and Multiply. To LIVE is to embrace and work God’s Word for your life, His purpose and plan. It is in God’s purpose and plan for you in which you find fertile ground to sow, to work your assignment as well as your relationship with God that sets you free to enjoy the life and life more abundantly promised. Your sensitivity to God’s ordered steps is a

DAILY MEDITATION

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matthew 7:20 Our choosing to LIVE in the fullness of God’s promises releases the works of our hands to God’s control and in so doing we are, our work in relationship with Him, is set free to God’s command, promise to be Fruitful and Multiply. Make sure the work of your hands are aligned with God’s purpose and plan for your life and you will produce a harvest, fruit that reflects God’s promises for your life. We cannot expect to sow one thing and reap, harvest something totally different. If you sow good, good will return to you and according to God you will be Fruitful and Multiply. You and I will be known by the fruit that we bear, the work

DAILY MEDITATION

Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh. A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned. Matthew 12:33-37 You and I have a choice as to the determination of our lives, the outcom

DAILY MEDITATION

Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening. O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. Psalm 104:23-24 The Lord has provided everything we need to LIVE fully in His command and promise to be Fruitful and Multiply. The choice is ours, if we decide to work our assignment, God’s purpose and plan for our lives, we will yield an abundant harvest. The process from working our assignment to our harvest is filled with the intent of God for us to be one with Him and His promises for our lives. As we LIVE by working our assignment we are also working our relationship with God. The very essence of God residing withi

DAILY MEDITATION

Thy kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and thy dominion endureth throughout all generations. The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down. The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing. The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works. The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them. Psalm 145:13-19 LIVE for God’s kingdom, His Word lasts forever! We need not worry or fret for whatever we face or engag

DAILY MEDITATION

Who in times past suffered all nations to walk in their own ways. Nevertheless he left not himself without witness, in that he did good, and gave us rain from heaven, and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness. Acts 14:16-17 Be Fruitful and Multiply despite and in spite of the circumstances of your life or around you. Do not allow the circumstances and life’s challenges to drive your narrative, LIVE for God has and will do everything necessary for you to overcome and flourish where you are. God knows and knew exactly what circumstances and challenges you will face and will provide the necessary nourishment and empowerment all along your process. Life and the circumst

DAILY MEDITATION

He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works. He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man's heart. Psalm 104:13-15 Be Fruitful and Multiply is a command from God in which He has provided everything needed to accomplish His command. God never speaks and does not give the necessary power, creative and actual, to accompany His Word. You can rest assured that if you choose to LIVE in the purpose and plan of God that the provision is already done and the p

DAILY MEDITATION

What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: Psalm 8:4-6 God has intended for you and I to be His visible, living presence in the world and with us He has given us His power to overcome anything and inherit all of His creation in abundance, to be Fruitful and Multiply. Choose to LIVE and with your choice comes the provision of all creation from God. God chose to make us a little lower than the angels and giving us the co-creative status with Him to

DAILY MEDITATION

If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them; Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely. And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land. And ye shall chase your enemies, and they shall fall before you by the sword. And five of you shall chase an hundred, and an hundred of you shall put t
