Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground." Genesis 1:28 NLT
The first blessing that was released on man is the blessing of fruitfulness. What does it mean to be fruitful. Fruitfulness is the empowerment to bear fruits. Another word for fruitfulness is to be productive; to generate results; to prosper.
God planted man on earth as a seed, expected man to bear fruits. When a man is barren, his prayer can be hindered. Why? Because man was designed to bear fruits in as much you're not bearing fruit your prayer can be hindered.
You didn't choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce fruit that will last, so that my Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. ( John 15:16).
In other words, the reason why you don't received whatever you ask for is because of your unfruitfulness. Because you were chosen to bear fruits. Fruitfulness is not optional, it must be intentional. The reason for Man's existence is for fruitfulness any other thing apart from this is secondary. That your fruits should remain. Nothing should tamper your fruits, because is the principles that leads to result. If you change the equation it doesn't change Gods reaction.
The Bible says, seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and every other thing shall be added unto you.
Your primary priority on earth is the kingdom of God and his righteousness. The lesser you seek his kingdom and what pleases him, the none you received. Your passion can only be demonstrated by your action. Jesus says, the zeal of my Father's house has consumed me. When things were not rightfully placed in the Church, He took responsibility to make things right. Be consumed with the activities of your church. When things are not properly done, take responsibility and fix it.
Jesus asked Peter, do you love me? Peter said, oh Lord you know. Jesus said to him, then feed my sheep.
That's to say, it's not enough to tell me you love me. But your love and service to other people will determine how much love you have for me(God).
4 PRINCIPLES THAT AFFECT FRUITFULNESS.
1. YOU MUST UNDERSTAND THE STATE AND CONDITION OF WHO YOU ARE AS A TREE:
Fruitfulness is not optional, it's a must.
Matthew 7:16-20 You can detect them by the way they act, just as you can identify a tree by its fruit. You don't pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles. A healthy tree produces good fruit, and an unhealthy tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can't produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can't produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. Yes, the way to identify a tree or a person is by the kind of fruit that is produced.
2. The soil( location) you are planted can be affected. When God is involved impossibility is nothing. Your soil can determine your fruits. Where you are planted can determine what you keep seeing. Never allow shame to plant you wrongly in destiny.
3. INVEST IN THE TREE: John 15:1-2 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch that doesn't produce fruit, and he prunes the branches that do bear fruit so they will produce even more.
If you want your life to be more productive you must work on yourself. If you don't change your approach you will miss out in the season. Be flexible to change.
Until you invest something new in your life, you will never see new life.
4. ENVIRONMENTAL FACTOR: Certain fruits can grow in certain states. Because of climatic factor(atmosphere) of the environment. The seed might be good but if not planted on the right soil it can be affected.
My prayer for you today,
1. In the name of Jesus Christ, I declared your fruitfulness according to Genesis 1:28.
2. Whatever form of barrenness in your body, lineage is arrested now in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Every form of environmental factor that denies you of fruit give way right now in the name of Jesus.
4. Receive fruitfulness in your ministry, business, marriage, relationship, in your body in the name of Jesus.
