‘He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant, and as a root out of dry ground.”
A tender plant from the dry ground. Dry grounds produce thorny plants like cactus that have adaptations of living in the wilderness with minimal supply of water. What are the chances? How then can we have tender plants from the wilderness?
In the middle of a sun scorched land should be exhaustion but instead there’s blossoming. Why? Because that’s the standard that Christ set and as He is so are we in this world.
When it’s hot and dry
When the sun shines and there are no signs of the rain
When it’s hard and tough
When I am caught up in between two rocks
When my emotions are in a pit
When I really don’t feel like it
That’s when I thrive! Because it’s in my nature, it’s in my DNA. If Christ demonstrated it then it’s my reality!
Instead of wondering why it’s so tough, I should get my praise dance on and get ready for the tender plant from the dry ground!
Coz I am a new breed! Christ’s breed!
