What is this?

 

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. 

"Blessed (happy, fortunate, prosperous, and enviable) is the man who walks and lives not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor stands [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sits down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.  But his delight and desire are in the law of the Lord, and on His law (the precepts, the instructions, the teachings of God) he habitually meditates (ponders and studies) by day and by night.  And he shall be like a tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams of water, ready to bring forth its fruit in its season; its leaf also shall not fade or wither; and everything he does shall prosper [and come to maturity]."  Psalm 1:1-3

Meditate can also mean "imagine" I was studying Joshua 1:8-9 yesterday and looked it up. :) It (meditation on God's Word) brings about courage, strength and boldness. I'm with you on this.. I want to receive the limitlessness of God!
