Divinely Designed; To Increase

Did you know that you are divinely designed; that within you, there is what I would call a God Code placed within you by the Creator who has a specific purpose for your life. A purpose and a design that you and only you can bring to the world. 

One of the first mandates or commands that God gave to man and woman in the garden was that they were to be fruitful, to multiply, to fill the earth, to replenish the earth, to subdue the earth. Be fruitful, and multiply. Now I think being fruitful and multiplying has more to do with just procreation and creating more humans. 

A pecan ended up on my deck, a few winters ago. Now the closest pecan tree that I know of, is about three blocks away. What it was doing on my deck I have no clue. It appeared after a snowstorm. and I can only conjecture a squirrel decided to plant it there. 

If I were to plant this pecan, it would produce– in the right conditions–a pecan tree. And there would be thousands of pecans produced as a result of that one seed being planted. 

If I were to take some of those pecans that were produced and to plant them; I would have even more pecans. In fact, I would eventually have a whole orchard of pecan trees, producing millions of pecans, every year. 

That is a divine plan. The divine design is that we increase. 

We as humans are designed to always be expanding and increasing and become more. It is not the nature that God has placed within us or within His creation to only maintain or to go back, or to shrink. 

Think about any tree you want to think about. It is always growing tall and is always expanding. It’s always producing more and more. That is the nature of all creation. 

The only thing that can interrupt that would be an outside force that constrains it. For example, If I were to take a tree, a young tree, and place it in a pot and practice the art of bonsai upon it by trimming the roots clipping back the limb, it will cease to grow any larger.

Are you doing that in your life? Have you decided to give yourself a scaled down version of your life? Are you putting yourself in a small pot and limiting your growth? 

I think God’s intention for you, the Divine Design, the God Code is for you to grow and to increase. Environment has a lot to do with how much we grow, how productive and fruitful we are. 

If I were to plant this pecan tree in the wrong type of climate or in the wrong type of soil, nothing would happen. Lf I leave it in my drawer,It will always be a seed until it decays. But in the right environment. It grows, it produces, it becomes more and expands. 

And that is God’s intent. That is, the Divine Design that is the God Code created within you. 

We’ll be talking more about environments, and how to select the environments that are most conducive for your growth in the future.  

For today. I encourage you to examine your life, and ask yourself if you are growing. Are you multiplying, are you expanding?  Or are you shrinking back? If you are shrinking back, why is that, why aren’t you growing? 

Let’s make today an Amazing Day.
