No Man To Work It
Have you noticed that there is a dearth of good men on the earth? God had called us to be leaders in every niche we have found ourselves. Leaders that know the way show the way and walk on the way. But what do we have? From the home front to Government; men are clueless on how to run their lives in an acceptable manner. Fathers, mothers, Husbands, wives, children, employers, employees, students, teachers all seem not to understand what they have been called to do. If we all truly understand our roles then the world will indeed be a better place to live in. The intention of God is that the whole world will be filled with His knowledge and covered with His glory just as the waters cover the seas. To achieve this, we must all do what Psalm 34:3 say “Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt His name together.” Unfortunately, discordant voices are what are raised in the private and in public, thus a cacophony of noise. This is definitely not the intention of the Lord. No matter how much man tries to pretend, in just a little while, what he carries on the inside will begin to show. Someone once said: ‘if it walks and quacks like a duck, it is not necessarily a duck, it is still a rabbit impersonating a duck during rabbit season.’ It is time to be the man you were created to be and not some cheap imitation! When man was created, he was told to dominate all created things, unfortunately, the very thing he was told to dominate and subdue is what is dominating and subduing him; he would rather subdue and dominate other men. Genesis 2:5 says “and no shrub of the field had yet appeared on the earth and no plant of the field had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground…” In chapter 1, God had spoken and it was done! The seed was already in the ground but it needed the man to come and work the ground so it could spring out. Remember, God said in Jeremiah 1:12b “for I watch over My word to accomplish it”, thus the seed (Word) in the ground cannot die because God did one thing in Genesis 2:6 – “but there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.” The Lord God was not done, the Bible says in verse 7a “Then the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground…” Man was created to accomplish the desire and mandate of God: he is to work the ground in order for the things the Lord had put in it to come out. Friend, you have been having issues in your marriage and several areas of your life. Heaven is asking you: ‘How have you worked the ground you have been placed in?’ It is God that placed you there just as man was created and placed in the garden to work it. It is the desire of the Lord for you to have a blessed marriage and a fruitful life. But when you refuse to work the ground, rain (blessing of God) cannot fall, thus, nothing will spring forth. Friend, you carry the breathe of God (His strength and abilities), what are you doing with it? God has spoken into every area of our lives, but we MUST work the ground to release the Word! You may declare: ‘it is hopeless, for I have toiled and have nothing to show for it.’ But take a look at the physical ground: you don’t work it once and it yields, you keep at it, even after yielding, you harvest and keep working it to yield MORE! The physical ground is brown, black or grey but from it grows all manner of beautiful and colorful plants. Friend, that ground that looks hopeless carries beautiful, sturdy and fruitful plants. Be the man, work it and don’t give up for you shall have a good reward for your labour because it had been written long ago concerning you!!! God bless you.
