A mustard seed which was made famous by the Bible is one of the smallest seeds on the planet. Smaller than a grain of sand, it is incredible that it is even a seed. Yet when planted has the capacity to grow into a mighty giant tree. So big and grand, this tree can easily sustain an entire ecosystem with various animals calling it home. The key to this transformation is called growth.
Ministry is like a mustard seed. You may start small but your end will be big. You may be limited but in the end you will be unleashed. Where you are today may not be very promising but as long as you stay with the program, God will get you there. You must therefore stay strong and steadfast, continue serving Jesus to the place of your destiny. You may not enjoy all you are doing but don’t worry yourself. You will grow through the different stages of life and ministry to the place where you will become a sign of God’s grace that will cause many to wonder. Start serving Jesus today!
SCRIPTURE READING: MATTHEW 13:31-32
Here is another illustration Jesus used: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a mustard seed planted in a field. It is the smallest of all seeds, but it becomes the largest of garden plants; it grows into a tree, and birds come and make nests in its branches.”
DEVOTION PRAYER: Dear God, as I minister may I grow in ministry. May I remain strengthened and encouraged in the work of the Lord. I believe in the end I shall be unleashed. Amen
