And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so
God created fruit trees to yield fruit after its kind. The fruit trees seed is within itself. A seed is a very significant part of a plant. Seeds have everything they will ever become within its self. Roots are produced and come forth out of the seed and anchor the entire plant or tree.
Some fruits can be deceiving, they look good on the outside but when you peel back the layers you find rottenness on the inside. Don't be impressed with the outward shine, look for the inward glow!
Roots don't lie they only produce what they are.
• The part of a plant that has no leaves or buds and usually spreads underground, anchoring the plant and absorbing water and nutrients from the soil.
Jesus said, “For there is no good (healthy) tree that bears decayed (worthless, stale) fruit, nor on the other hand does a decayed (worthless, sickly) tree bear good fruit. For each tree is known and identified by its own fruit; for figs are not gathered from thornbushes, nor is a cluster of grapes picked from a bramblebush. The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks. (Luke 6:43-45 AMP).
Words are seeds and are impregnated with life or death. Once spoken they quickly look for soil to begin germination and root permeation. The seed must be watered and nurtured in order for the shell of the seed to be broken to let the inner life of the seed come out. The seed will only produce what is in it, no surprises, oops or mistakes, it is what it is. If we have undesirable fruit in our lives it is because somewhere along the way a seed was sown that contained the results you now see. The roots of the seed is what sustains the whole plant, if the roots are destroyed the plant will die. God told Jeremiah that He put His words in his mouth to root out, pull down, destroy and throw down, but also to build and plant. God’s word is the only thing qualified to uproot seeds of death and destruction, yet at the same time build and plant the good will of God.
So begin to be selective about the words or seeds you allow to be planted in your spirit and soul because they will produce a harvest; good or bad.
