“Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.”
Ezekiel 47:12 NIV
God is a God of times and seasons!
He is the God who enriches His children daily, weekly, monthly and yearly! He is concerned about your needs every month! In Genesis 1:28, God blessed humanity with the capacity or ability to be fruitful. Man is designed for fruitfulness. We fulfil divine purpose when we are fruitful.
What is Fruitfulness
Fruitfulness is your ability to bear or produce much fruit. It is about you producing outstanding results or achievements. It is about being productive! Monthly fruitfulness in our context, is about us producing an abundance of results every month.
God designed you and me for productivity. He expects us to be fruitful or productive.
You must know that:
- God designed you to be planted! No tree bears fruit except it is first planted. And not just being planted but being planted in the right environment. The Bible says, the blessed man, that is, the fruitful man is like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit in his season! Where a seed is planted matters! No matter how good the seed is, if it is planted on a hard surface it will never grow, not to talk of producing fruits. Where are you planted? Are you planted in the sanctuary of God? Are you planted in the right kind of business? Are you planted in the right kind of relationship?
- God designed water to nourish plants. For any tree to produce fruits, water plays a vital and critical role. Water in this context could mean the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. The Word of God is the water you need constantly for you to bear fruit monthly! Don’t starve yourself of the Word. A daily intake of the Word can keep you going strong and fruitful. Jesus said, “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” John 7:38
You need the Holy Spirit! He is the living water! He gives or inspires you with the right word to bear fruits.
- God designed you to bear good fruits that will bless people. The Bible says, “…the fruit thereof shall be for meat and the leaf thereof for medicine.” If you were to be a factory, would people be rushing to your factory to buy your products? Do you produce goods or fake products? Does your product add value to life? Please whatever you produce every month, let it be a blessing, not a curse. May people be satisfied with your products.
I decree and declare that you shall enjoy blessings of fruitfulness in Jesus’ mighty name!
