HOW LONG WILL YOUR LEGACY LIVE?
“We’re always taught that God wants us to always only say “I can’t do this without You God” , “Whatever your will is God, that’s my will too” but God says He is a father, and there is no good father who wants his children to have no will and to think that they can’t stand on their own two feet. So maybe what you should be saying is “I can do it” and “I have a strong will, I know what I want.” When you think God’s left you and wants you to be sitting like a duck, maybe He’s actually believing in you, teaching you how to fly.” ― C. JoyBell C.
As small as the mustard seed is, God never allows it to die without a generation. It grows and leaves a memorial on the earth behind it. Ladies and gentlemen, can you compare that to yourself, are you seeing a legacy after your life? Are you living in such a way to live a generation behind? Is your life daily establishing a memorial on your behalf? Do you even see beyond your daily survival? Do you see beyond your earthly life? Do you see the generations that would follow you? Can you see a lineage of positive influence? Do you see centuries of righteous obedience? Can you trace your lineage to the tenth, twentieth, thirtieth generation of righteous seed, for the lord?
That is no doubt a legitimate desire, because even with mustard seed, the tree that grows after it gets to live for decades. You too can definitely leave a legacy after you, which will live for generations after you are long gone. Just like the mustard seed takes over the forest, can you believe God that your influence will not be local? But that it will spread like wild fire to the ends of the earth. WHEN YOU ARE A MUSTARD SEED, BRETHREN – YOU WIN!
“The problem isn’t that I think so highly of myself. It is just that you think so little of yourself. Live life BIG, BOLD and OUT LOUD!” ― Shannon L. Alder
