IS YOUR LIFE’S VISION GREATER THAN THAT OF THE MUSTARD SEED?
“What is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you visit him? For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and you have crowned him with glory and honor.” Ps. 8:4-5
Now brothers and sisters, I think it should be clearer to you why God almighty should desire to use you. It should rather be clear now, why he would choose you to be the one to carry out his plans on the earth. This is because he knows his premium on you, he knows his price tag and the value he has placed upon your person. So even if you see yourself as a mustard seed, even then you win! No one has the right to ever doubt the calling of God upon his or her life. No one has the right to ever think he would fail. Otherwise it won’t be just in regards to God. It won’t be fair, after all His faith, trust and endowment upon us.
No matter how small you are in your own eyes, you are nevertheless not smaller than the mustard seed. If the mustard seed will have so much honor and dignity, you are even much more. Please begin to see yourself differently. Begin to see yourself in accordance with his thoughts about you.
Going back to the story of the mustard seed, oh what a glorious vision God has for it. God’s vision concerning the mustard seed is that it would not just be fruitful and multiply, God’s plan for this small and insignificant seed is that it would grow to have dominion upon all the earth. Could you try to compare God’s vision for the mustard seed with your vision for your own life? Won’t the mustard seed vision be much greater than what you are having for you own life? It should not be so. If Gods plan for a mustard seed is that grand, how much more will his vision for your life be much greater? He definitely wants you to be fruitful. He definitely wants you to multiply and of course. He definitely desires that you will feel the earth with his glory as the waters cover the sea.

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CHURCH AND NATION
