ARE WE GOING BACK TO WATER SEEDS GOD HAS ALLOWED US TO PLANT?  The only seeds that live are the ones we water!

Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moses got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock. When the girls returned to Reuel their father, he asked them, "Why have you returned so early today?" They answered, "An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock."(Exo.2: 17-19-NIV) You care for the land and water it; you enrich it abundantly. The streams of God are filled with water to provide the people with grain, for so you have ordained it. You drench its furrows and level its ridges; you soften it with showers and bless its crops.(Ps. 65: 9-10-NIV)If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the LORD will reward you. (Prov. 25: 12-22-NIV) And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of My followers, you will surely be rewarded."( Matt.10:42-NLT) Then He turned to the woman and said to Simon, "Look at this woman kneeling here. When I entered your home, you didn't offer Me water to wash the dust from My feet, but she has washed them with her tears and wiped them with her hair. (Luk 7:44 -NLT) So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor. (1Co. 3:7-8- NIV)

There are at least 436 verses in the Bible that have the word water in them, so for me that says water is very important to our Father. Not only that, but we also cannot survive without water. We can however survive without food for a time. With that being said, I have a question – when we leave a seed in the spirit of someone, do we feel it is important to go back and water it? I realize that the above scripture says neither the one who plants or waters is anything because we cannot make it grow only God can. However, it does not say that we should neglect watering. When we encounter someone that God allows us to minister to and just leave them where they are, their changes of growing could become stagnated. It is important for us to make every effort to continue to empower whoever we can as we walk through our journey.

Think back to when you were first saved, did you immediately understand the word of God, how much He loves us, has forgiven us and wants the best for us regardless of what we have done or did not do? If we are truthful, the answer is no. There was someone the Father strategically placed in our lives to water us. They came back and walked with us to help us get an understanding of how we should desire to live our lives for Christ.

Even if the persons that we meet are saved, that does not negate the fact that they might need to be watered with words of encouragement, a smile, a listening ear, hug, and an assurance that we do care and are praying for whatever circumstances they may be facing. We are not talking about physical water as the scriptures indicate above, we are talking about spiritual watering, giving the word of God to a loss or hurting soul. Letting a person know that we are praying for them and believing God with them for their request. We can take time to send them a devotional, email, note in the mail, a card, even a phone call just to express our concern.

Beloved, it is important that we stay in touch with those persons who God puts on our hearts and in our spirits. No one cares how much we know, they just need to know how much we care. It may be a neighbor, a stranger in the store, or we may meet someone who is not saved, a child , man or woman in the street, it does not matter as long as we are sincere in leaving a seed, and when possible going back to water it so that God can help it go grow. If we are blessed to meet someone who does not know Jesus and he or she feels that God does not love them, that is a prime opportunity for us to leave the seed of forgiveness, and restoration with them and invite them to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Then, if possible go back and reiterate how much The Lord loves them and wants to forgive and accept them into His Kingdom. We all realize that only the Father can keep each of us, but it is our responsibility to allow Him to use us as He pleases.

None of us my beloved are perfect, we never have been nor will we ever be, we just serve a perfect Savior. It does not matter whether we have a title or not, we just need willing hearts to be a servant of the Master. God can and will use any of us who are willing to be used by Him to empower His kingdom.
