FRUITS

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Genesis 21:1-8

But it is good to be zealously affected always in a good thing, and not only when I am present with you.

We all know the story of Abraham and Sarah, (Genesis16:1-4). You could consider Sarah as a type of the church. You could also consider her as a type of minister. Sarah can be likened to a pastor who is not bearing fruit, as he ought to.

Sarah can be likened to a wilderness kind of church in which there is no life. Sarah laughed when she heard the prophecy about her son Isaac. Learn to receive the visitation of God for your life through revelations, dreams, and the spoken word. Do not scorn any of the methods of God’s visitation.

According to Genesis 16:1-2, Sarah shifted the responsibility of child bearing to someone else. This was an attempt to overcome the barrenness she was experiencing and to portray an apparent fruitful situation.

Walk in your calling. You must overcome the greatest enemies of the faith walk-fear and intimidation. These will not lead to fruitfulness in ministry. Take the practical steps that lead to fruitfulness even if it looks like something for younger people.

Decide to be youthful, zealous, emotional, exciting, energetic and adventurous again. This will break the spell and curse of barrenness over your ministry. Sarah had sex with her husband at the age of ninety.

No matter what prophecy is spoken over your life, there will always be practical things you have to do.
