"Just Wait and See!"

“The owner's servants came to him and said, 'Sir, didn't you sow good seed in your field? Where then did the weeds come from?' 'An enemy did this,' he replied. The servants asked him, 'Do you want us to go and pull them up?' 'No,' he answered, 'because while you are pulling the weeds, you may root up the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn” (Matthew 13:27 – 30 NIV).

We were looking forward to coming home again after being gone for a few weeks. Of course we were very curious how our yard would be looking like. When we finally got to see it, we were a little shocked at its condition. The weeding had been completely neglected and it was just amazing to see how quickly the weeds had grown, far more than the real plants.

Our disappointed soon disappeared as we rolled up our sleeves and began to free our precious plants from these huge and nasty enemies. Actually, our joy grew more at the very clear and obvious sight of these weeds and we became very effective in the deliverance of our plants.

This is a lesson we all need to learn as leaders in the Kingdom of God. It is absolutely necessary to wait for the full blown manifestation of the counterfeit for it to become very obvious and clear to us. It will require patience, faith and wisdom, but just wait and see, because your spiritual discernment will be a fruit of it and you will be called an effective deliverer in the lives of people entrusted to you.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
