Producing What Is Impossible Alone

God breathed into man the breath of Life and he became a living soul our flesh has always needed the spirit of God.

In John it talks about how in the beginning was the word and the Word was with God and the Word was God.

It's important that we don't look at the word of God as just a book or stories on a page but it is the power that can transform us if we allow the word to become part of our life.

The example that I gave is about a flower and unless pollen is brought to that flower from another source it will not produce any fruit. We ourselves are created in God's image and we can do a lot of things on our own but unfortunately they're just the works of The flesh. They may be impressive and they may look good but they're not eternal when the spirit of God is combined with us then we begin to produce something that has seed contained in it, fruit. We go from making stuff that only lasts for a little while to being able to tap into the eternal things.

When Jesus was standing in the river John saw the Spirit coming down and resting upon Him and remaining. We cannot make God be part of our life but we can do our very best to be someone that he desires to remain with.

And just like our relationship with God it goes hand in hand with the word we can't make the word become life in our life we have to let it when we try to make things happen it puts us in the authority position and we end up telling God what to do but when our mindset is letting the word of God become life in our life we are in a place of submission to the authority that God has set up through his word.

So the spirit of God really does complete us and it causes our effort and what God has gifted us with to become something that will impact this earth, for eternity that will change people's lives and bring those that are searching for God, an example and a demonstration that they can believe in and they can see.

How do you now see “making the word”, and the difference in” letting the word” become life in your life?

How did the word about doubt change your perspective?

What seed of the word was planted into your life this week.

I look forward to reading about the moments the word became alive to you!

How do you now see “making the word”, and the difference in” letting the word” become life in your life?

This was one of the parts of the message that I just went "huh, I thought I knew that, and was doing that, but I guess I'm not always". The thing that really stood out to me is when we are "making the word" we put ourselves in the driver's seat and even if we have good intentions, we are taking power and control away from God. Therefore it will never really happen. But "letting" gives God the ultimate power and authority and we simply allow the Word to become (meaning, to begin, to come into existence and fruition) in…

Melissa thank you for bringing out when seed hasn't sprouted on your timeline. Doubt and unbelief come in! I definitely understand where your coming from. . .


Yes the whole point of making it happen or letting it happen. So blessed that God wouldn't speak something that he would not expect to come to pass!

Allowing, permitting, letting "the Word" has always been part of my vocabulary back when Bishop broke down that phrases word by word many moons ago. ALTHOUGH, vocabulary is just that.... words. It's not the same as it actually being "life in your life." (no pun intended) As Elder Christy said, I love the facial expression and gritting of teeth that Ps Aaron used signifying the fight to "make" the word become life in your life.

Oh yeah! The zucchini! Totally tiny one day and then a giant the next! What a difference a day of doubt makes. I bet faith works the same way...maybe it's a cucumber 😂

I see the difference is when I am making the word I am the one trying to be in control, and trying to make it work. And when you try to make it work on my own you can warp it to make it try to work for what you are doing but that not having it actually a part of your life that's taking and fitting it in where you want it and distorting it. Were as letting the word you let it be in control

Very true in the making we sometimes distort the word and it becomes ineffective. It's like this socket kind of works I mean I have to use a hammer to get it on there but it kind of works it's not the right application for it and so we use the word incorrectly and then we wonder why didn't it work and then we doubt everything.

How do you now see "making the word" and the difference in "letting the word" become life in your life?

What a revelation! And to be honest for the longest time I never really saw the huge difference as I do now. The demonstration of making is becoming the one in authority as in letting is being is being under submission. I ask myself I'm going to make this word become life in my life. "I'm going to do it till it kills me"! Knowing that's when we put all our efforts in our mindset is completely flesh. And like mention only flesh will produce flesh! But when we let the word become life in our life we are putting…

I completely hear you there Stephanie! I have had the thought "I'm going to do it even if it kills me", and I chalked it up to determination and perseverance, when really I was just trying to make it work instead of letting the word work and massage the underlying causes of things to the surface. Powerful!

How do you now see "making the word", and the difference in "letting the word" become life in your life?

This question instantly makes me think of "I'm doing..." (you can fill in the blank with a million and one things), as if anything we could possibly do would ever produce anything other than self. Pretty standard elder son stuff: thinking that if I dot all the "i"s and cross all the "t"s, do everything just right that somehow it will all add up to being enough. But Ps. Aaron really summed it up with the fact that nothing we do can make God do anything. We can't make Him be with us, nor can we make godly fruit happen…

Unbelief was the zinger in this message that God really shined the light on. Power statement you said How often to do call God a liar, but just label it as a little bit of doubt? It's not a comfortable thought.
