God just gave me a revelation as l was eating the remaining of the food that was left over from Thanksgiving. For some reason, leftovers always seem to taste better to me, and l always start craving more it seems after they are all gone. Personally, I believe the food taste better afterwards because of all the seasonings that are mixed within the food that have had time to settle within the food which allows me to be able to really enjoy the full taste of everything l am eating. Even in storing and refrigeration which helps in the purpose of preserving so that the food will not spoil or ruin before it can be eaten again; everything serves a purpose.
God began to reveal to me it is the same way once you come into contact with Him. You begin to desire and want more of Him. That is why it is so important to hide (put away) the Word in your heart (the storage/refrigerator) so that you can go back and get it time and time again. The more you go back and get the Word, and begin to eat and feast off of the Word, you will taste the goodness of the Lord because you will start seeing the Word come alive in your life; you will become not just a talking Word, but also a walking Word because the Word will never spoil or ruin. Because of the process of preservation, you will actually see results that will lead to growth, maturity and wisdom. When people see and hear you; it will not so much be you they will see and hear, it will be the God in you they will see and hear; that alone reveals to others that you are “the salt” in the seasoning of being God’s chosen one. You then have an opportunity to share a portion of your meal (the Word of God) with those whom God allows you to divinely cross paths with. The key is not to miss the moment, but to maximize every moment.
Always remember that one person plants the seed; one person will water the seed and it is God who gives the increase. That is why it is very important to know your assignment because God will use you in the lives of others to either plant a seed or add water to the seed that someone else has already planted. (1 Corinthians 3:7-8 says “It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work.”) (NLT)
Also, l would like to add that salt serves many purposes. It is used for the purpose of seasoning, cleansing, healing, preserving, enhancing, as well as balancing. (Matthew 5:13 says “Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God-flavors of this earth. If you lose your saltiness, how will people taste godliness? You’ve lost your usefulness and will end up in the garbage.”) (MSG)
Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
