Love Breaks Barriers to Blossoming

Love Breaks Barriers to Blossoming. What does blossoming mean to you? When you can identify and define this then you will pray and believe God in light of that. Love provides the environment for faith to flourish. (Galatians 5:6). Love is the enabler of faith, faith will not work well without love. You cannot love God without loving man, because every human being is a representation of God. God loves us and we must reciprocate that love by loving people.

Love according to Christ in Matthew 13:1-9

Love is like the manure that creates the environment for faith to thrive. Some of the things that cause our hearts to harden against people are circumstances we have been through or the environment we are in.

  • Thorns: Thorns choke life out of the plants and didn’t allow it to blossom and this can be likened to bitterness. Bitterness chokes life out of relationships that should make us blossom. There are things that we might not achieve without collaboration, two heads are better than one. Hebrews 12:15 NLT. The thorns in Matthew 13 can also be likened to ‘cares of this world’; lust, covetousness. Cares of this world will distract you from God and what He has asked you to do.
  • Disconnection from the body: John 15:4 NLT. Luke 15:11-21. The prodigal son disconnected himself from his family and because of that he encountered famine, he reached the point where he was sharing food with pigs. Some of us are disconnecting ourselves from the families that God has planted us in. Don’t disconnect from the body of Christ. When you disconnect from the body of Christ, when you disconnect from the body, you disconnect from the father because Jesus is the head and the church is the body. Ephesians 4:16.
  • Drought: Jeremiah 17:7-8 NLT. Drought happens but if you trust in God, your roots will be connected to him and you will blossom. When two people are in love, they desire each others presence. It is the same when we love God, we desire to be in His presence all the time.
