I want to begin a very important series today on “How To Develop The Seed of Greatness In You.” What is the seed of greatness?
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God” (Luke 8:11).
The seed of greatness is real! There is a seed of greatness in you. Greatness is a biblical concept. It was prophesied upon John the Baptist that he would be great. If Jesus said the least in the kingdom is greater than John the Baptist, then, there is greatness in you. This same greatness was prophesied over Abraham. If Abraham is great and you are one of his children, then you are going to be great as well! “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29). Greatness is promised to us through the word of God and through the prophecies.
“And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also” (Genesis 1:16).
There are two main lights we use on the earth, moonlight and sunlight. God made two sizes; one great and one not so great. The greater one was to rule and dominate in the day and the smaller, lesser light in the night. God is in the business of making greater light and lesser light. I prophesy to you that you are one of the greater lights! You have received the prophecy of greatness for your life. I am prophesying to you, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness, greatness. That is your destiny! You are going to be as great as God has determined. How do we develop this seed?
“Now the parable is this: The seed [the mystery] is the word of God” (Luke 8:11). When I am preaching, I am throwing seeds in your life! The seed is a very powerful weapon. As I keep speaking, they are being thrown out there and they are fighting for us! It is fighting devils.
“(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;)” (2 Corinthians 10:4).
What do these weapons do? They cast down imaginations. When your thinking is a certain way, Satan is actually in it. The weapons that God has given us are for casting imaginations down, and things that are against the knowledge of God. The weapons are fighting the statements and things that are contrary to what God has said about your life. The seeds also bring to captivity certain thoughts. “….and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5). Just try marrying an individual who has certain thoughts. You will then realize how unsafe you truly are. The thoughts you are having reveal the presence of spirits. That is why listening to messages is one of the most important things in your life!! Receive the seed of greatness in you! Receive the seed of the word of God in your life!
