Secret 01: Anything With No Foundation Will Spring Up Faster

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭CSB
“Other seeds fell on rocky ground where it didn’t have much soil, and it grew up quickly since the soil wasn’t deep.”

You now understand why the enemy starts a whole lot of trends. 1. Because his trends can not take root; they will soon die out. The enemy cannot wait that long. He can have the patience to wait for you to fall into his trap, but he doesn’t have that kind of patience when setting the trap. He starts a lot of trends to lure people, and such people will die with the trend.

God has all the patience. Thus, it is one principle of discernment. If it is from God, it has the ability to last because God will invest in a strong foundation that will stand the test of time. Jesus plainly said in John 15:16 that his disciples bear fruits that last. If it’s from the enemy, it will come out of nowhere to lure the masses and die out. Gamaliel said it this way; “‭‭if this plan or this work is of human origin, it will fail; [39] but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them…”

So you shouldn’t be worried in life if you don’t see yourself “springing”. God will invest a solid foundation into something He believes is worthwhile. He is in no worry like we are. He doesn’t run out of time. Even the enemy has learned strategic patience. He can patiently wait for thorns to grow with the seed of the Word and choke it before it bears fruit. In Revelation 12:4, the dragon was strategically waiting for the woman to give birth so it could devour the child.

I dread a quick-fix, fast food, where-are-the-results, manifest-now, soft life, comfort zone generation. God will never put His name on a person He didn’t prepare. Jesus was God but still took 30 years to be prepared for a 3-and-a-half year ministry. This is also why you ought to be aligned with God, especially in seasons of preparation. God will never let you skip any process. It’s rather detrimental in the future. The more you go through the motions with Him, the better.

Do remember that not everything that springs up faster has a shallow foundation, but anything with a shallow foundation will spring up faster. Bamboo takes root for several years and then springs up faster. God wants you to go deeper before you can go lengthier. The deeper it is, the lengthier it becomes. Take this from an architect. The deeper the foundation, the taller the building. The deeper the depth, the higher the heights. You CANNOT go higher if you didn’t go deeper. It’s rather detrimental in the future. Something the enemy can not wait for, yet it’s God’s divine strategy to build a fruit that lasts.
