What Type Of Tree Are You?

Silver%20Birch%20Logs%20in%20WaterParable – There was a man  who was a lumberjack who stood in the water and guided the trees to the right mill. A person  walking by asked him, “How do you know which way to send the trees? He said, “There are two types of trees. Trees from the valley and trees from the mountaintop. The trees from the valley are a good wood for chairs, tables and light furniture. It is good wood, but not very strong. I push those trees to the mill on the left. The other trees are the trees from the mountaintop. Those trees are very strong. It is some of the bestwood you can find. It is sturdy and durable. It costs more to cut furniture from them. They have weathered many storms so are very strong. Those trees I push to the mill to the right. In hearing, the parable the woman asked herself, “Am I a tree from the valley or a tree from the mountaintop?” The person walked away pondering this and how it related to their life. They heard God speak to their heart. The Lord said, “The tree does not choose its place or destiny. As your God, I have made you a tree from the mountaintop that has weathered many storms. I have brought you through.” The person began to trust the process God was taking them through in their life. They  knew that they  would be strong for others just as the mountaintop tree was sturdy furniture for good, valuable use. When your mate does come, he or she  is getting a person  who has been through many storms and can pray him through. Marriage is not for heaven but for earth to build God’s kingdom. You are the tree that he is building his kingdom with: strong, durable, and valuable.

Let God restore your faith again. It takes faith in God. The things you have been through may have shaken your faith.

Believe in Jesus to move in your life. Whether it is in a relationship, with a sickness, family, or emotional scars; He can heal all! We shall live by faith in a savior who is faithful to meet our needs. You have nothing to lose in believing in him. You have much to gain. The Holy Spirit in you is programmed for faith.

“But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he wills. For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” 1 Corinthians 12:7-12
