Here is a true statement: If we died with him, we will also live with him. (2 Timothy 2:11, ERV)
For those of you who enjoy planting, you should be familiar with the process of sowing. You are aware that those seeds in your hands are dry and ‘dead’. But when you sow them into the soil, water them and ensure the ground is suitable. Within a given time frame, these seeds will germinate and grow. Such is a natural procedure governed by the law of nature. When you faithfully nurture the young plants, they will grow into a healthy and maybe, fruitful trees.
In our journey with God, we pass through different seasons. In specific season would be a time to sow. Sowing is liked surrendering the dry and ‘dead’ object into God’s hand. It could be a long-awaited desire that seems dry and dead [Hannah’s barrenness]; financial struggle due to the national economic crisis [famine which hit the entire nation]. How about the ill-wounded relationship and health [may require a change of lifestyle or releasing forgiveness]. Whatever circumstance it may be, the divine law in God’s word is, when we surrender these dry and ‘dead’ objects to Him, they will rise with Him. The risen Lord would raise these objects alongside with Him.

Therefore rejoice in the Lord and trust in His goodness and appointed time. The dry and dead shall rise again!
Let us pray:
Dear God, I embrace the season of sowing. I lay all the dry and ‘dead’ matters of my life right now. I believe in Your resurrection power to raise them in Your appointed time. I pray to You, Holy Spirit, that You would cause a supernatural rain upon these seeds. I speak into them right now, arise and walk! Live a vibrant life to manifest the King’s glory. In Jesus’ name. Amen!
