Good Fruit In Every Season
Dr. Lalith Mendis
Page 2 Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivulets of water that brings forth its fruit in its seasons , and its leaf shall not wither, and all which he does shall be blessed. Parent you are the sower and farmer into your child's life . As a child grows beyond 12 years of age, he/she also begins to sow seeds by choice. Let it be good, holy and wise choices. At the age of 12, the serpent of the garden begins to interact with the child. Your choices will choose you. That's how many are called and few get chosen. First become last & last become first. Sow seeds of life & spirit every day into your child whether child is one year old or 21 years old. Gal 6:7-9 Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows, that he also will reap. (8) For he sowing to his flesh will reap corruption from the flesh. But he sowing to the Spirit will reap life everlasting from the Spirit. (9) But we should not lose heart in well-doing, for in due season we shall reap, if we do not faint. How is your field? How is your heart? What you sow in this season puts down roots. Even when you become wiser and try to sow better seed in the next season, old roots do not allow the better seed to flourish. This is the sad state of the third kind of soil â€“ good soil with root encumbrances. Mar 4:18-19 And these are those being sown among thorns; such as hear the Word, (19) and the cares of this world, and the deceit of riches, and the lust about other things entering in, choke the Word, and it becomes unfruitful. Do not sow to the flesh now, imagining you can recover later. This is how parents and children miss the season. Suppose you sow flesh seed (your good idea but not a God idea) when child is 12 years and try to rectify when he/she is 15 yrs, you will find roots that have got stuck. Then there is pain and repentance needed. You could have avoided this. Your gifting, your specific anointing is to see new principles in God's word, to understand new facets of the nature of God, and to find new applications of the nature of God in the contemporary culture. I bless that in you. I release you from the limitations of a peer culture that will bind you to something smaller than that which God has called you to. We celebrate your creativity and your ability to color outside the lines of your culture. __________,I bless you with a profound and holy reverence for the boundaries that God establishes through His law. While you are thinking outside the box, while you are creating paradigms that others have not thought of, you must stay within the paradigm. Stay within the pattern, within the rules and the laws that God has established in His Word for you. I bless you with being a free spirit regarding the traditions of men, but I bless you with a profound fear of the Lord that causes you to respect the perimeters that God has established to keep you safe and whole. __________ I bless you with being mighty in spirit. I bless you with avoiding the influences that will cripple you and make you small. I bless you with avoiding the diseases of the spirit and soul and body that will keep you from fulfilling your birthright. I bless you with a progressive revelation of the will of God, the principles of God, the mandates of God.

I bless you, beloved child, in the name of Jehovah-Rophe. I bless you with celebrating the boundaries and possessing your birthright as you remain whole, holy, and wholly within those boundaries. I bless you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
