Grow As You Sow

 "They shall be like trees of righteousness for the glory of The Lord"

The right place to be in is in prayer and right standing with GOD. Prayer positions us know the right place, and be in it.

This morning Holy Spirit revealed to me the importance of planting seeds in the right spaces and places. When we seek GOD with a pure heart, we begin to sow in the right places.

seed is what we sow, trees are what we get. Trees produce fruit (Sustenance), trees provide shade (refuge) trees make products, so many things. So, it’s important to plant seeds in the proper place with our finances and seeds of being in the proper place with prayer.

No matter what we’ve been through, we can call on Jesus, our hope! Jesus restores and has a mission — “ to give them a crown of beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and a garment of praise for a spirit of despair. So they will be called oaks of righteousnessthe planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.

the seeds sown determine the fruit yielded.

This same morning I looked up and saw Microsoft sharing an image and insight of the baobab tree. This is how the info was described:

The Indigenous peoples of sub-Saharan Africa, where baobabs grow wild, have long relied on the trees for a variety of uses. The fruit, seeds, and leaves are all edible, and in some places, the wood pulp is a fermentation ingredient in local beers. Here in Madagascar, the trees are a national symbol, and the Avenue of the Baobabs showcases a few dozen of the majestic titans.”

As trees of righteousness we are planted as a national symbol to glorify GOD, (the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of GOD!) The seeds we plant will be trees for the provision that somebody needs.

The article described the trees as “Majestic Titans”. We are solidly in place, strong for The Lord.

How do we get strong? The joy of The Lord. (Nehemiah 8:10) How do we get the joy of The Lord? by spending time in the presence of The Lord.

The bible says the proverbs 31 wife has arms strong for her tasks, that she’s clothed in strength, this woman spends time in the presence of The Lord. Her virtue comes from The Lord. It goes on to say: Give her the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her at the gates.

Reaping comes from the sowing. Arise today! Repent and sow good seed in The Lord!

May your seed yield goodness for many days to come!

Don't be afraid, more angels are with you than there are demons against you. Stand with GOD. It may look like you're surrounded, but you're surrounded on all sides by the angels of The Lord. GOD is a covenant keeping GOD, and so The Lord of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is with us to protect us when we receive Him.

Take hold of this word from The Lord today.

Wande Releases New Video For "They Didn't Know II" Single

Gospel Rap Artist Wande recently released the visuals for her new single 'They Didn't Know II'.  Check out the Video Below.

 

 # # # # #

"The lyrics in Wande’s new single, “They Didn’t Know II,” celebrate young, bold, and unashamed Christians and talks through personal challenges she experienced early in her faith. “Many people don’t know how powerful making a choice to follow God is,” shares Wande. “Choosing Christianity at a young age changed my life and music for the better. I’ve discovered that when God fights for you, you move different! When you’re on your faith journey, especially when you’re young, it’s hard for people who aren’t on it with you to understand the transformation you’re experiencing. In the lyrics for her newest single, “They Didn’t Know II,” she rhymes, “They be thinking I’m crazy, but look what He did. I gave Him my life He changed how I live. So yeah, I’m unashamed Romans 1:16…Saved me at a young age started from the teens, now my real-life way better than my dreams.” Still, one day, you’ll be able to say like Wande, “This is who I am,’ I am not going to apologize about being unashamed to follow Jesus."
 
Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, she’s had a successful entry into the industry.
Her single "Blessed Up" was selected by Michelle Obama for Spotify playlist. “Woo” was featured in the viral marketing campaign for Apple’s iPhone 12 mini which garnered over 4.5 billion views on TikTok.

Her afro-beat influenced, “Come My Way,” (ft. Teni, Toy√©) from Reach Records' Presents 116 Summer '20 Playlist was featured in ULTA’s SoundCloud campaign. Cultivating a relationship with the beauty retailer is important for Wande who is exploring launching her own beauty and fashion line. Additionally, her music streamed in the WNBA’s 2020 Draft promotion, Lena Waithe’s BET Production “Twenties,” and her song “Be the Light” ft Evan & Eris was also ESPN’s Music of the Month feature. 

Her single, "Don't Worry Bout It" ft Atlanta based up and coming rapper, Porsha Love, was nominated for "Best Spiritual Record" at the A2IM Libera Awards. Wande is a 2X Libera Award Nominee. The music video for the single went viral on Facebook with over 1.5 million views in 45 days and the single is already at over 2.2 million streams.
