What is this? An acorn. (Ay-kern or Ay-korn) You might tell me it's the nut or fruit from an oak tree and you'd be right. But everything needed for an oak tree to grow is contained in this nut. So you could look at this acorn and say it's an oak tree and you'd be right.
It's the same with us. At the point of salvation, all of God is planted in our hearts. He lives in us!!! That's so hard to comprehend. But it's truth! All of Him. But I imagine He comes to us like this acorn--in full potential of an oak tree. But we must water and feed our own spirits to give room for Him to expand inside of us until we become mighty oaks of righteousness. (Isaiah 61)
That's my prayer for myself this year--that my heart, mind, and spirit will expand to receive the limitlessness of God. I want to be a mighty oak.
