THEME: EVERYTHING HAS INTELLIGENCE.
SCRIPTURE: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the
manifestation of the sons of God. For the creature was made subject to
vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same
in hope, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the
bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God
When you look around you, the materials formed
and fabricated from natural elements are doing nothing, except what we
have fabricated them to do. However, they can do much more; they can
even hear you, because everything in life has intelligence.
Moses, in Numbers 20:8. God said to him, “Take the rod, and gather thou
the assembly together, thou, and Aaron thy brother, and speak ye unto
the rock before their eyes; and it shall give forth his water, and thou
shalt bring forth to them water out of the rock: so thou shalt give the
congregation and their beasts drink.”
The first time, the people
were thirsty for water, God told Moses to take his rod in his hand, and
in the sight of the elders of the people, strike the rock and it’d bring
forth water. He did as the Lord commanded and water came forth. See
Exodus 17:5-6. This time however, God told Moses to talk to the rock.
Now, the point to note here is the fact that the rock had intelligence.
God expected Moses to talk to it.
In Mark 11, the Bible tells us
that Jesus spoke to a tree. He was hungry, and upon seeing a fig tree,
He expected to find some fruits on it, but didn’t find any. The Bible
says, “And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee
hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it” (Mark 11:14). First,
notice that it says, “Jesus answered and said unto it (the tree)”; Jesus
spoke to the tree. Secondly, His disciples heard him talk to the tree.
By the next morning, the tree had died from its roots (Mark 11:21).
you see, everything in life, living and non-living things, all have
intelligence. The Bible says all creation is waiting, groaning in pains,
for the manifestation of the sons of God. The whole creation has been
subject to bondage, and travails to come into the liberty of the
children of God. We’re the ones to set them at liberty. We’re the hope
and light of the world. So, keep speaking life and blessings to your
environment, to everything around you. Glory to God!
a king and a priest unto God; therefore, the words of my mouth are
spirit and they’re life! I give life to everything around me! Everything
in my world, whether living or non-living, is constantly charged with
life and vitality! Praise God!
