Abundant Fertility

Barrenness, wilderness, places where nothing grows, where nothing is produced, nothing is exported. We so often wonder why someone or some place is barren. If you are the one that has lived with barrenness or wilderness, you know how painful it is. The enemy loves to remind us we are barren, we are in a wilderness. Many times the promises of God can seem like a mirage, we hear it, we see it, but we never seem to be able to access it. I don’t know the why about the what when it comes to barrenness and wilderness, but I do know I have exprienced it. There is a nearness of God in the barrenness and wilderness, but there is always an ache as well. It is a beautiful contradiction that those who are in it understand.

Today I was reading Proverbs 25 and it starts out by saying, “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” God gets glory when things are hidden, that alone is ponderable, and kings get glory when they discover what has been hidden. I continued reading and it says, “Have you found honey? Eat only what you need, That you not have it in excess and vomit it.” Honey is a common theme in the Torah, so I wanted to know what the Rabbi’s say about honey, and what I learned blew my mind.

Israel was and still is a barren land, a wilderness if you will. Yet, God continually told them they were a land of milk and honey. I learned the land of milk and honey is a land of abundant fertility. God decreed about Israel that though they looked like a wilderness and they were barren, God was decreeing them to be abundant fertility. When I read that the Lord spoke so clearly, to all those who are barren, to all the wilderness people, God is decreeing you are a land of milk and honey, you are abundant fertility! I know it doesn’t look like it, but we must receive the decree abundant fertility, land of milk and honey. God has concealed your milk and honey land, for it brought Him glory, but today He is revealing who you are so you can decree I am the land of milk and honey, I am abundant fertility.
